This is done with silver heat embossing. The stamps are from the sets Lovely as a Tree, Star of Light and Christmas Pines for the Sentiment. The card stock is Island Indigo and Whisper White thick for the card base. I also matted with silver foil paper. This is going to one of my artsy friends.
So begins my rush to finish Christmas cards. This features the Pretty Pines Suite and my version of the curtain fold technique. I love the way the stripes on the DSP turned out. I also love the embossing on the Mint Macaron what would otherwise have been negative space turned out. I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits I love that they look finished without doing a matte. I know who’s getting this one but I won’t tell.
I’m going to be alternating between some Christmas and some 2017 Occasions catalog ideas and fade out Christmas and concentrate on Occasions catalog and Annual catalog. I’m sorry about that but us crafters are always ahead of the season especially since us lucky ones who went to On Stage got a head start on Spring ideas. To keep it simple this card is made from the Perfect Pines thinlits, Warmth and Cheer DWT and Christmas Pines stamp set. The colour scheme is Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and a touch of Crumb Cake. I’ve been working on Christmas cards since July and Spring is a welcome change!
I love this card. It’s made using all different components of the Christmas Pines suite: DSP, DWT, Pine Cone embellishments, Ribbon, stamps and dies. Cherry Cobbler ink and Emerald Envy, Cherry Cobbler, and Whisper White card stock were also used. This currently is my favourite Christmas card!
This is a remake of a card I made a few months back but was not happy with. I’m happier it turned out better this time. Features Christmas Pines stamps, Delicate Ornaments and Christmas Greetings thinlits dies. The foil sheets are the retired red, gold and silver. (Last two not retired). Card stock is Cherry Cobbler and Pear Pizzazz.
