The holidays are creeping up fast! The stores are loaded with shoppers getting everything for Thanksgiving dinner and I'm seeing Salvation Army volunteers ringing their bells at the entrances and hearing Christmas music in the air. So right away my mind turns to Christmas cards. Being a paper crafter I wouldn't think of buying Christmas cards if I can get mine made in time to send. This one is clean and simple and lays flat for easy mailing!
I started with a white card stock base. Next I trimmed a slightly smaller panel in white and die cut the Free Hand Merry Christmas Die. I adhered this to my card base and then cut the Free Hand Merry Christmas Die from red card stock and adhered it inside the die cut opening. A needle tip or pen type adhesive like a Sakura Quickie Pen work great for this. If you're in a hurry you can just adhere the "Merry Christmas" to the white card panel.
Next for the pretty corner. I cut the Stitched Holly Border from a light and darker shade green card stock. I wasn't happy with the contrast when they were layed on top of each other, so to add a little more bling I cut the same border from gold foil card stock and layered it under the green. Just the edges peek through but it's so decadent! The red berries were cut from the Stitched Holly Leaves and Berries die and adhered randomly along the borders edge.
I know I'm early... but I'm wishing you all the very best Thanksgiving!
