I am working on my last Christmas cards this week… I thought I had enough but so thankful to know that there were some new friends and mission partners God has brought into our life this year! We are rejoicing!
Today I would love to share couple of the cards I made using some retired products from Close To My Heart. Both cards are 5.75″ square.
Card 1 I used some of Sparkle and Shine paper packet and I distress the edge of the second layer paper using Edge Distresser. I really like this distress tool, easy to use and quick way to create torn edges 🙂 Then I tucked one of the corners and secured it with Mini Stapler.
On a square piece of watercolor paper I stamped the wreath using Olive exclusive ink pad. The wreath I actually created using a leaf brach from It’s The Little Things set (SOTM November 2014). I drew a thin circle as guide and stamped the leaf repeatedly after I sprayed with little water to give the watercolor effect.
With the same technique, I stamped the Noel sentiment in the center of the wreath using Ruby exclusive ink pad. Then I embellish with some Studio G red glitter glue, I found it at Walmart scrapbooking area. I set it aside to dry completely before I added the twine and glued it on the card.
This card I link up this card at Virginia’s View Challenge #10, All Things Distressed
And this second card, I link up at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Bling It On. I used the same products and technique to create this card. A little bit different design.
For the wreath, I only stamped the leaves one layer and then I added some red adhesive gems on the wreath. Then I add the baker’s twine on top of the card.
Thank you for stopping by today and have a merry December!!!
