I created this card for hubby’s grandmother who is 95 years old. We slid in a gift card to the book-a-million store as she is avid book reader.
Read on to see what supplies I used for this Traditional Christmas Card with a little modern concept.
I took White Daisy for the card base, which is your standard size of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I cut down one sheet (light brown/white) of Cedar & Pine Paper Packet to 4 x 5 1/4 and matted onto the white card base. I took the red sheet from Cedar & Pine Paper Packet and cut it down to 2 3/4 x 4 and matted it onto the light brown/white background paper.
I stamped the poinsetta from the Traditional Holiday stamp set with intense black inkpad. The intense black inkpad is recommended when you’re using alcohol based markers which I used Light Green Blend and Dark Red Blend markers to color the poinsetta. After I completed coloring, I took the blender (clear) and ran it over in some area to lighten up the colors. Once that was done, I took the Clear Shimmer brush and ran it over the poinsetta and set it aside so it could dry.
I used Evergreen, White and Espresso cardstock and ran it through the big shot using the Beautiful Bough die-cut from Stampin’ Up. Once that was all done, I assmebled the pine cones onto the white daisy for the background of die-cut from the Beautiful Bough. I attached the poinsetta with Pop Up Foam dots onto the white die-cut. I used the liquid glass to adhere the pinecones to the white outlines. Also, used liquid glass to adhere the pine leaves onto the card. Once everything was adhersed to the card; I ran the clear shimmer brush over everything to give it a little sparkly look.
I stamped the pine leaves and pine-cones from the Tradtional Holiday stamp set with Fern, Evergreen and Espresso inkpads onto the envelope.
I have included all of the supplies below to create this project. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas.
Until then, 🙂
