Hello friends! Well unfortunately we have not received the sunshine with the cold weather. Insert sad face here. Maybe that will change...
Today's card was one that I created for my monthly stamp group but then I spiffed it up a bit. Be sure to read through to the end. I will be sharing some very special birthday cards that I received a few weeks ago.
This card uses the Christmas Banner Bundle which is perfect for Christmas cards. I started with a card base of Evening Evergreen. On top of that I added a piece of Soft Succulent cardstock and on top of that I added a piece of Basic White that I embossed using the Timework Type 3D Embossing Folder. On top of the embossed piece, I added a piece of DSP from the Texture Chic DSP pack. It has the all of the colours plus some gold so it goes with this card perfectly.
On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the long, skinny banner using Versamark ink. I added some gold embossing powder and heated it to melt. The gold embossing powder is from the Metallics Embossing Pack. I then cut it out using the corresponding die from the bundle. I stamped my sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink. Before adding the banner to the card front, I added a "nest" of gold cord to the back of the banner. The gold cord is from the Simply Elegant Trim pack. I added the banner to the card front using dimensionals.
To complete the card, I added some sprigs and leaves that I cut out using the dies from the bundle. I cut these out from Evening Evergreen cardstock, Soft Succulent cardstock, Vellum and Gold Foil. I tucked these under the top left and bottom right of the banner.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card.
Stay well and keep creating!
Here are some of the best birthday cards I received a couple of weeks ago for my birthday. This first one is from Peyton. Mom and Dad helped her with the printing and gluing but she did the finger painting all by herself. Mom put her in the bathtub and let her paint to her hearts content. Such a great idea!
The second card is from my older granddaughter. Her printing is getting so good! The outside of the card:
And the inside of her card:
There was a second card from Paisley. It was a single sided piece of DSP with a white side on the inside. She wasn't happy with her picture on the first card's inside so she did a second one. I'm not sure if that is a picture of her or me....
The third card is from my grandson. His printing is also getting so good. He made his card with a left hand opening.
And here is the inside of Everett's card:
