Holly Berry Background Card with Blended Seasons

Today I’m sharing another Christmas card made with the Blended Seasons Bundle of products. This time I used the holly stamp to create a back ground for my card and then I coloured it with Poppy Parade and Garden Green Stampin’ markers.

The gold embossed sentiment comes from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, which again I have added to my card using the gorgeous stitched frames from the Stitched Seasons die set. I will really miss these next month when they’re no longer available, so if you’re thinking about making purchase I would hurry before they sell out.

I added the bow die cut and a strip of Poppy Parade cardstock to make the card look like it was a Christmas present.

Swirly Snowflake Edged Card

Today I’m featuring another card using my favourite colour combination for snowflake themed cards Pool Party, White and Silver. I decided to pull out and have a play with the Snowflake Sentiments bundle today, this was one of the first additions to my wish list for the autumn/winter catalogue. I love the combination of the intricate dies and the gorgeous font used in the sentiments, for me its a winning combination.

Firstly I took a card base in Pool Party measuring 14.5cm x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm and used the dotted edge die to created the detailed shaped edge.  I next took a piece of window sheet measuring 10.5 x 14.5cm and stuck this to the inside of the card using tear and tape, this was to give the card a straight edge to stand up with.

I next adhered some silver foil onto the multi-purpose adhesive sheets and cut out the detailed snowflake die, this fits along the edge of the card base perfectly once cut out. If you have the die-cut brush available now is the time to use it, I don’t have one so spent a long time pushing all the little bits out with a cocktail stick.

Adhere the snowflake die to the card. Next take the silver foil and cut three 0.5cm strips which are 14.5cm in length and stick them across the top of the card. If you have the silver washi tape from the Year of Cheer suite that is an easier alternative.

Next the Pool Party shimmer ribbon and stick across the card covering one of the silver lines, I used the tear and tape to stick mine down. For the sentiment stamp the greeting on Whisper white cardstock in Pool Party ink and then cut out the second largest Stitched Shape Oval Framelit. Take the corresponding scallop edged die from the Layering Ovals Framelits and cut that out of Pool Party, stick to the back of the greetings panel and then onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensional’s.

For the inside of the card I took a piece of Whisper White A4 and stamped one of the greetings in the middle in Pool Party. I love how the Snowflake Sentiments set have sentiments which can be used on the outside of the card and has some which can be on the inside of the card.

Pop back tomorrow for my final card from Snowflakes and Stars week featuring the Star of Light set again.

Happy Crafting,
