Merry Christmas! I hope you are more prepared for the holidays than I am 😄 But I am prepared enough to have this special Christmas card to share with you.
Here is a video showing the entire process.
I took the Slimline stamp set All Spruced Up and the coordinating dies to make all of the images for this card. The main image in that set creates a frame of pine boughs. They are stamped in Evergreen Bough and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxides, then heat embossed with a clear sparkling embossing powder.
There are poinsettia, pine cone, and berry branch images in this set also, and they definitely work perfectly with the pine boughs on this slimline box card.
The wide box card die set makes this a really easy card to construct, and I love the stitched layers for all the panels!
Combining the berry branches and pine cones really helps fill this out.
One of my favorite features in the Wide Box Card die set is the large rectangle stitched panel for the flap that does not fold down. I used it on both sides of the flap. This is a great place to write your personal message.
I did use the stitched panel to cut the pine bough layers also, so everything matches up just beautifully!
You can really see all the sparkle and shine with the embossing. And the Auburn Pearl Nuvo Crystal Drops on the poinsettia centers.
That gorgeous sentiment is the Scripty Christmas die set, and I adore it with all of the Mirror Card from Tonic Studios. This particular color is Fire Stone Red.
What do you think of the stamping on the kraft cardstock? Do you love it, hate it, or no particular feelings about it at all?
And Merry Christmas to you all!!
