I know, I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving (next week!) yet, but you also know that we crafters need to start early on our Christmas cards, gifts and decorations, if we are going to get them out before Christmas! LOL So I’m working here! I used the Jolly Christmas stamp set for this card today. I fell in LOVE with this reindeer image when I first saw it and just knew that I’d use gold embossing powder on it. It stamped beautifully and embossed like a dream. All of the stamps used on this card are from this set, except the “Silent Night”. That stamp is from the Wonderland stamp set.
Can you see the shimmer of the embossing? I framed the Silent Night banner with a small piece from the Home for Christmas DSP then added one of my mom’s gold buttons with a little Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine. I pulled a few of the gold sequins off of the Gold Sequin trim and scattered them around with a little bit of glue from the new Fine Tip Glue Pen. If you haven’t tried this yet, you need to, the application is truly fine. Use it sparingly and let it dry for a little while before moving your creation.
The background, or base card, is Tip Top Taupe. It looks different colors in these pictures, even though I tried to adjust the color but it didn’t quite make it. You can get all of the products needed for this card (except Mom’s button LOL) from my online store HERE. This card would be a quick and pretty easy card with a lot of WOW factor.
The card base is Tip Taupe Taupe cut 4 1/4 X 8 1/2. The Mossy Meadow square is 2 3/4 X 3 and the Very Vanilla where the reindeer is stamped is 2 1/2 X 2 3/4. The small strip of Home for Christmas DSP is 1″ X 3″ and the Very Vanilla strip is 1/2 ” X 3″.
So what are you waiting for? Christmas is just around the corner!!! Get to creating something sweet for somebody!
