Christmas in July!
Trying to get a bit of a head start on some Christmas cards this year before all heck breaks loose with work! I ordered the new Echo Park Snowy Flourish stencil, and the Merry Everything sentiments stamp set from Colorado Craft Company. Scrapbook.com was so nice giving away the free Merry Christmas die! Love it!
I made one panel and was able to get both of these cards with it. I used Nuvo Glacier Paste in Sea Sprite. So much sparkle I love it! Once it was dry, I cut a piece of matching Bazzill cardstock (unsure of the color because I have had this in my stash literally FOREVER!) and adhered the trimmed down panel to it.
I took some red 65 lb. cardstock from Recollections and die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment 3 times and adhered them together. I then adhered it to the center of the card and glued the whole panel onto an A2 cardstock base. Card #1 done!
For card #2, I cut a small piece of the leftover Snowy Flourish stenciled paper, and adhered it to a slightly larger piece of red cardstock. I adhered this to the left side of an A2 card base. After this, I took the 'Have a Very Merry Christmas' sentiment and stamped it in VersaMark black ink. I took two mini red rhinestones and placed them on the side of the word 'merry' and voila! Card #2 done.
These 2 cards literally took me 1/2 hour to make. I like making more than one design to keep it interesting, and these would be a snap to make a bunch of in a short time. The longest part was waiting for the Glacier Paste to dry!
Thanks for stopping by to check these out!
