Tis the Season- card

Hello Hello. I know it's been a while but life happened and I was not able to post. I am back today with another card in my Christmas in July series featuring the Peaceful Pines stamp set. Since it's been so hot and humid here in Virginia, I was glad to make a cute Christmas card to celebrate the season of winter. The photos don't do the sparkle from the embossing powder justice but it does shine.
Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Additional supplies used: ATG tape runner, embossing powder bag, heat tool.

1. Create a card base from Very Vanilla card stock that is 4 ¼” x 11” and score at 5 ½”.

2. Cut a piece of This Christmas DSP to 4” x 5 ¼” and adhere to the card front using favorite adhesive. Next cut a piece of coordinating DSP ( I flipped the piece I used on the card base) adhering to the top left corner and cutting at an angle. Adhere to the first DSP on the card base.

3. Die cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock using the layering ovals dies and then die cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using a scalloped oval. Stamp the tree image on the Very Vanilla using the Garden Green stampin’ write marker and then stamp the dots on top in Versa Mark ink and sprinkle with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set with a heat tool. Stamp the sentiment using the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker at the bottom of the tree.

4. Tie a bow with the Gold trim cording and adhere to the top of the tree with a mini glue dot. Attach the ovals together with dimensionals and then adhere to the card base with tape runner.

For the inside of the card I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to 4” x 5 ¼” and left the panel blank to add a personal message.

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

Happy Mother's Day
