Here is the start of my Christmas cards that I will be making this year! If you receive cards from me and want to be surprised, don’t go any further!! LOL
I am doing a class where we will make 3 each of FIVE Christmas cards, and if you prepay you get to make an extra Bonus card! I’m hoping to get a headstart on my Christmas cards this year, how about you?!
I am going to show you today ONE of my 6 cards so far…….make sure you check back in so you can see the others!
Here is the first one:
I love cards that are weathered and antiquey……..I know that is NOT a word, but that’s the only one that came to mind! LOL
I stamped the Music Notes on the Vanilla piece with Sahara Sand, but stamped off first so it wasn’t so dark. I then tore the cardstock in carefully planned areas, and made it look old. LOVE doing this, don’t you? This card was really simple except that the ageing did tak a little time, but not as much as you would think. I stamped the Reindeer? using Early Espresso ink, didn’t color him in at all, and I think he looks great! I wanted some of my cards to be a little simpler since I will be making these in bulk. I cut him out using the Stitched Framelits and then cut a mat using the Circle framelits using the scallop, cutting this out with Cherry Cobbler. I used my Early Espresso marker to make the stitched edge look stitched!
For the Banner I used the Bunch of Banners thinlits. Did you know that this banner thinlit cuts out BOTH the sentiment AND the border? I hadn’t used this one yet, and was surprised that it did that, so I was able to frame the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler!
I added Linen Thread behind the Reindeer, popped up the sentiment with Dimensionals and I was done! Easy Peasy!
Here is what the inside looks like:
Isn’t it pretty?
