Simple but striking is my idea of the perfect handmade Christmas card - like this lovely card! I used the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper. This paper is on SALE along with 12 other lovely papers in the Buy 3, Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Sale which ends tomorrow! Don't miss out! Scroll down for the details and dimensions on this card.
The stamp comes from the Labels To Love stamp set which coordinates beautifully with the new Everyday Label Punch. I stamped the greeting in Archival Basic Black on Whisper White card stock and then punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch. Then I used the same punch to punch out a black label. I turned it a quarter turn and attached it behind the greeting. It gives you a nice layered look on your card and adds depth and size to the greeting which is the focal point of the card.
I used the same technique of punching a black label, turning it, and adding it as a layer on this card. Click on the photo to read the details for this card (another simple but striking Christmas card!).
I embellished the tag with the beautiful Black Rhinestone Jewels. These simple self sticking black rhinestones are my favorite embellishment in the Holiday Catalog - they dress up a card beautifully and are a great addition to your embellishment collection!
Here is another card where I used Black Rhinestones combined with the Christmas Around the World paper Bridge - love the combo of the rhinestones and this pretty paper! Click on the photo for the details on this card.
Here is a quick peek at the inside of the card! I used the Every Good Wish stamp set for the inside greeting. For the holly and berries stamp I colored directly on the stamp with my Garden Green and Real Red Stampin' Write Markers.
We have been having a beautiful fall in Minnesota the last two months, but now the weather...
is starting to turn! As soon as the snow starts falling (we had our first snowfall last Friday), I start thinking of Christmas!
