Good morning and happy Sunday! Did you remember to turn your clocks – microwaves – cable boxes – CAR RADIOS?! – back!? Or are you in the school that just leaves some of the too-hard-to-change clocks on one time all year? I may or may not leave the truck alone – I can’t actually remember how to do it so…. 🤷♀️ Why, oh why, can’t we just leave the time alone??
We’re almost at the end of our retreat – dang it! 😢 It’s been so much fun – we’re already making plans for next year! Which means…there’s still time for you to establish your Critter-dom status! 😎😎😎
Since y’all missed out on the 8-Saturdays-till-Christmas video last night (sorry – not sorry!) – I decided to do a Christmas card for you today – AND I even made a short video on how to make it. I’m a giver that way. 🙄 This one features the fun stand-alone Handcrafted Elements dies – with supporting roles from Night Divine, Joy of Noel and Christmas Classics. Take a look-see:
The design was loosely inspired by the sketch challenge at the Global Design Project this week!
I started out by stamping the Night Divine sentiment in Cherry Cobbler near the bottom of a Basic White panel.
Then I embossed the panel in the Timber 3D Embossing Folder, which I matted on a piece of Cherry Cobbler for the card front.
I adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock to a piece of Adhesive Sheet and then cut out three pine boughs using the Joy of Noel die.
I peeled the backing off and adhered the boughs in a stylish swag down the top of the card.
Using the two dies from Handcrafted Elements – I cut out the small oval from Gold Foil and the larger (top) ornament from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
Using Liquid Glue – sparingly!! – I adhered the Cherry Cobbler die cut to the Gold Foil ornament. Isn’t it pretty??
Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the ornament to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I tied a little bow from gold trim from the Gold & Silver 1/8″ Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basics Jewels and the card front was done.
For the inside, I stamped the sentiment words from Christmas Classics in Cherry Cobbler on a Basic White panel. Over the top, in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce ink, I added a pine bough from Christmas Classics. I even stuck on another little Iridescent Rhinestone Basics Jewel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card base on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Joy of Noel boughs in Shaded Spruce (I stamped twice without re-inking) on the front…
…and again on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Clean and Simple. Not my usual jam but….oh how I love the white-on-white pine boughs – Joy of Noel is the bomb! Combined with the Christmas Classics bundle – it’s parfait! And, when you’re looking for a beautiful Christmas sentiment, no need to look any further than Night Divine for the perfect choice!
I hope you like!
