Can you believe it’s the last weekend before Christmas? I’m totally stunned at how fast this crazy year has gone. I’m making the most of this time and crafting Christmas right up until it’s here. So I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today squeezing in another beautiful Christmas card to share with you.
I recently got a whole new rainbow of ink pads and was super excited to try them out on this Mistletoe set because the images are pretty solid and can be difficult to get a good impression with. I’m just in love with these and how beautifully they turned out.
To create this card, I cut some strips of cardstock to 3 inches wide and stamped my images on them. When I have a die cut heavy card, it’s nice to do this and sit at my desk using my Mini Maker to cut everything out instead of my big die cut machine which can be daunting. I used the coordinating Mistletoe dies and cut all the images out.
After everything was die cut, I trimmed a piece of light blue cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches and ran it through my die cut machine with the embossing sandwich and the new houdstooth embossing folder. Then I moved on to assembling my flower cluster down the left side of that panel. Because of the texture I went with liquid glue on the whole thing to make sure things stayed in place. I added a couple of clear blocks on top and left it over night to dry.
For the sentiment, I decided to stamp Season’s Greetings from the same stamp set and die cut it with the smallest Layered Slimline die to create a sentiment strip. I popped it up with some foam squares and moved over to finishing touches.
For those, I decided to keep it simple and used Nuvo Crystal Drops in bright gold on the poinsettia centers and glued a few red jelly drop hearts from Trinity Stamps around my sentiment.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
