Hi friends! Happy Sunday! I’m delighted to welcome back from Lawn Fawn a very special guest designer, Elise Constable! She’s made this gorgeous holiday card to inspire! Read on to learn more and enjoy!
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be back on the SSS blog today with a Christmas card to share with you all!
I started by die cutting a piece of patterned paper from the Favorite Flannel paper pack with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle die, and adhering it to a white card base. Then, I die cut the leaves and branches from the Merry Mistletoe set from Noble Fir and Cilantro cardstock. I decided to switch up the colors of the berries on the branches, and instead of red, I chose to cut the berries from Pixie Dust and white cardstock.
I love to make the sentiment the star of the show, so I used the Merry Christmas Script (only used the Merry)to cut the sentiment with gold metallic cardstock. The gold sentiment pops so nicely against the greenery on the card!
After arranging the branches and sentiment on the card, I glued the piece into place. I only glued the stems of the mistletoe die cuts so that the leaves could pop up a bit from the card for extra dimension.
Next, I used embossing ink and white embossing powder to heat emboss the “christmas” sentiment onto Black Licorice cardstock. The “christmas” stamp is from the Christmas Before ‘n Afters stamp set. After cutting out the “christmas” sentiment and attaching it with foam tape, I glued a few clear sequins onto the background.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope this has inspired you to make some Christmas cards today!– Elise
