Just a reminder, if you are in the Ottawa area looking for a card class or just a night out :), there is still time to RSVP for this Friday's Christmas Card Class!
I think you are going to love the simplicity of today's card 🙂 If you are looking for a Christmas card that doesn't use a lot of cardmaking supplies, this card is a great option! All you need for this is the Christmas Pines stamp set, the Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Metallic Thread Combo– all from the 2016 Holiday catalogue!
You could even simplify this card further by skipping the embossing and stamping the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler or Real Red ink.
How To Make It:
This card starts with a base of Shimmer White Cardstock 5.5" x 8.5", scored at 4 1/4”.
Run the card front only through the Big Shot using the Pine Bough Embossing Folder, as shown.
Stamp the filigree frame image from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Emerald Envy ink on a small piece of Shimmer White Cardstock. Allow it to dry completely.
Stamp the greeting from Christmas Pines on top of the stamped frame image in Versamark ink. Cover with Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder and tap off the excess. Heat emboss with the Heat Tool.
Using Paper Snips, hand cut the greeting and frame as shown.
Add Fast Fuse to the back of the cut greeting. Loop both colors of Metallic Thread around three fingers about five times. Add this loop of metallic thread to the Fast Fuse on the back of the greeting cut out.
Adhere the greeting and metallic thread to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To finish off the card, add a large Pearl Basic Jewel to both sides of the greeting.
