For today’s card, I bring you another Christmas card. You might think – What’s with all the Christmas?! It’s not even October.
I know, I know.
I can’t stand when retail stores put up Christmas too early, but for me it’s a matter of being able to fully enjoy Christmas. If I have my cards done now, that’s one less thing to do when all I want to be doing is baking cookies, watching cheesy Christmas movies, and sitting down with a good holiday puzzle with my kiddos (another huge stress reliever for me).
So, here we go – another Christmas card. I hope you feel inspired and not like I’m rushing through the holidays.
My card starts with some Cherry Cobbler as its base. I used a Gold Foil Sheet and cut out two strips of 1/2 wide to place at the top of my card. I then took a piece of Very Vanilla Lace Trim to layer of the gold.
Next I layered my banners using the Gold Foil Sheet and the music sheet pattern from the This Christmas DSP.
Finally, I stamped the angel from the Wonder of Christmas in Cherry Cobbler and fussy cut the sentiment out and placed two gold enamel dots over where the angels’ hands were. I stamped in Cherry Cobbler one of the stockings from the Hang the Stockings Bundle to layer over the banners and cut it out with the coordinating thinlit. Before adhering those two elements, I wrapped around a few circles of Gold Baker’s Twine from the Trio Pack.
This layout was inspired by this week’s challenge over at the Global Design Project.
