I have started making Christmas cards and Halloween cards to send to the organization and this is one of the designs. It's very easy, and is something you could production line and make a bunch for the holiday season.
Hope you enjoy it!
- Christmas Noel Cartridge
- Gypsy (Optional)
- Kraft Cardstock
- DCWV Christmas Shimmer Stack
- DCWV Holiday Collection - The Christmas Stack
- Martha Stewart "JOY" Edge punch
- Martha Stewart Score Board or other scoring tool
- Embossing Ink Pad
- Snowflake stamp (I used one from Inkadinkadoo's Snowflake Set)
- Post it notes
- Liquid Adhesive like Scotch Quick Dry
- ATG or other tape adhesive
Cut Kraft cardstock to 8.5" x 5.5" and score at 4.25" to create an A2 size card.
With the card facing you, on the right flap, use the Martha Stewart edge punch to apply the detail to the edge of the card. Center your paper in the punch using the tick marks on the punch. This will ensure you have the wording centered on the edge. Continue to move and punch the full edge of the card.
Cut a 1" strip of paper to use behind the punched edge.
Apply tape to the inside of the card just below where the punched edge is.
Align the 1" strip to the back side of the card edges and close card attaching the strip to the inside front.
Use post it notes to cover the punched edge.
Stamp using embossing ink and the snowflake stamp in a random pattern all over the front of the card. Rotate the stamp and stamp off the edge so it looks more random and natural.
As the embossing ink dries, the images will become darker on the kraft cardstock.
No need to emboss with powder unless you want to.
Cut your Christmas tree on the base image from a medium green shimmer paper at 4.5" and the blackout from the gold shimmer paper also at 4.5". The image is located on the 3rd row, 2nd button in.
Using the liquid adhesive layer your detail cut on the blackout cut of the tree.
I used ATG tape to adhere the tree to my card, but you could also use pop dots for added dimention.
I left the inside of the card blank, you could stamp or write your own sentiment or note before sending.
