It's only September, but crafters know now is the time to gear up for the holidays. And card makers really need to start those beautiful Christmas cards. Well, I'm away on a craft retreat and figured now is the time to start the holiday card production.
I started with Unity Stamp Company's "Cheery Christmas" stamp set designed by Graciellie Designs & Unity. This beautiful detailed wreath stamp comes to life when colored. Using copic markers (G99, YG67 & YG17) I colored each leaf. The ribbon was colored using copics as well (R59, RV29 & R17).
I then used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out each of the wreaths. Then I fussy cut the inside of each of the images. Next, I cut a 12x12 wood grain design paper into six pieces in 4" x 5.25". Using Whimsy Stamps Envelope Edges Die set to trim it, I created two pieces of for each piece giving me twelve wood grain trimmed edges for twelve cards. I then cut some other Christmas themed design paper in to 4" x 5.25" and adhered it to a white A2 size card base.
Using my Misty, I stamped the sentiments on the wood grain pieces. The different designs got different sentiments from the "Cheery Christmas" stamp set. Once done, I adhered them to the cards. Next, I used Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares to pop up the wreaths onto the cards. Final detail was to add red Stickles to the berries for a little something!
Check your stash for holiday patterned paper and some woodgrain design paper to make your next rustic Christmas card. Thank you so much for reading this post and feel free to leave a comment.
