Hello! Happy Tuesday!
It's a rainy day today and a good time to work on the projects for my annual Christmas card class. One of the projects my customers will be making bears a distinct similarity to the second project I shared during the Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop. You can see all of the projects I shared at this post (where you can also follow the hop to see what all the other talented blog hostess presented).
This card begins with a card base of Soft Sky cardstock. A piece of Island Indigo cardstock, slightly smaller than the size of the card front was adhered to the center of the card front. A piece of Shimmery White cardstock was embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions embossing folder and adhered to the center of the Island Indigo cardstock. The two smallest snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set were stamped three times on Whisper White cardstock using Soft Sky ink, reinking the stamp every time. The snowflakes were punched with the Snow Flurry punch and Stampin' Dimensionals attached to the back of each snowflake. One of each size of the snowflakes was cut in half. Two of the smallest punched snowflakes and one of the larger punched snowflakes were adhered to the Shimmery White cardstock along with the half snowflakes leaving an open area near the bottom right corner of the card front. Note that you'll have one of the larger snowflakes left over.
The "Merry Christmas" sentiment was stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Island Indigo ink and die cut with the largest banner shape from the Bitty Banners Framelits. The die cut banner was adhered to a slightly larger piece of Island Indigo cardstock and the ends of the cardstock cut into banner tails using Paper Snips. The greeting was adhered to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The inside sentiment area of the card was lined with a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the two smallest snowflakes randomly stamped at the upper right and lower left corners using Soft Sky ink. The sentiment was stamped near the upper center of the liner using Island Indigo ink. The remaining punched snowflake was adhered to the liner.
The two smallest snowflakes were randomly stamped at the lower left corner and along the left side of the front of the Medium Whisper White Envelope. The "Merry Christmas" greeting was stamped over the snowflakes using Island Indigo ink at the lower left corner of the front of the envelope.
I really liked the soft, calm feel of this card. AND the fact that this card is completely mailable! No extra postage required is always a good thing with a handmade Christmas card.
I'll have the final project from the Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop on Thursday. I hope you'll stop by to see how easy the gift bag and tag were to make!
Have a great day!
