Thinking of you at Christmas

Hello and welcome to the first card project for the Christmas in July series. I will create a card each week with a Christmas Holiday theme with list of supplies used and instructions on how to put the card together. If you are interested in any of the supplies I use please feel free to visit my online shop to make a purchase. The project for today is subtle with a splash of color and I really love the sequins and flagged banners.

I used this card in a weekend challenge for a group I'm in. This could easily be mass-produced if you only use one card design for Holiday cards.

Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.


Supplies used:

1. Create a card base from Very Vanilla card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼””.

2. Cut a piece of the This Christmas DSP to 4” x 5 ¼” and sponge the edges with Tip Top Taupe ink and adhere this panel to the card base.

3. Cut a 1” x 5 ¼” strip of paper and notched the edges to create a flagged end ( I used a square punch to create this piece) and then cut a ¾” wide piece of Very Vanilla and create a flagged end. Stamp the sentiment on the Very Vanill flag using Mossy Meadow ink. Adhere the 2 flagged pieces together and then to the DSP on the card front.

4. On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock stamp the focal image using Cherry Cobbler ink and then the second layer in Real Red in and cut out the image (including the leaves). Stamp the same image again but this time use Mossy Meadow ink and cut out the whole image. Place red stamped image over the Mossy Meadow image using a glue dot and then adhere this to the flagged banners using a dimensional.

5. Add gold sequins in a visual triangle around the card front.

For the inside of the card I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to 4” x 5 ¼” and stamped another sentiment in the center of the panel. Adhere to the inside of the card base.

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting.

Happy Mother's Day
