Getting My Christmas Card-Making Groove On
I just couldn't wait for my next post for The Robin's Nest. So I am sharing a "special edition" on my blog. I have done a couple of cards with some of their "wintery" cardstock and supplies and just had to post them!
Here is the first one:
I have to tell ya....TRN has some of the most A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. cardstock! It's such a nice weight and the graphics and texture and glitter are of such great quality. Here is a picture of the basic supplies used and cut sizes for the cardstock.
I layered all the elements, popping up a couple of layers with foam tape.
|Foam tape added to the back of the red layer and the sentiment layer.|
Once the layers were assembled, I added the snowflake and Dew Drops from TRN.
I decided to finish the inside of the card with another sentiment and some more of the luscious red cardstock, and a couple more glittered snowflakes.
For the second card, I chose a Red Snowflake paper from The Robin's Nest.
Here is the breakdown:
I layered up the cardstock and ribbon, then adhered them together.
I added the snowflake clips, a couple of diamond shaped Dew Drops and some Barn Red Stickles (heart) to finish off the front of the card.
For the inside, I used a simple layer and sentiment.
This card ended up with a sort of nostalgic feel to it, and I like that!
Supplies used: Red Snowflakes Cardstock, Snowflake Clips and Diamond Dew Drops (all from The Robin's Nest); Barn Door Stickles; Jet Black StayzOn Ink; HOTP Christmas Stamps; Ribbon, Black and White Cardstock
And if you're not too bored with me yet (how could you be with these great papers?!), I'd like to share one more card.
I just had to do one more with the Black and White Pine Cardstock.
I added elements from the Hunter Classic Glitter Cardstock and some gold cardstock. Here are the measurements.
I die cut the scalloped oval and cut it in half. I also die cut the oval for the sentiment and lightly inked the edges while still in the die frame. I cut one more strip of gold cardstock and vee'd the edges to resemble a ribbon. I added a couple of snowflakes and some Dew Drops to finish off the accents.
For the inside of the card, I again kept it fairly simple. Some cardstock, a sentiment, and some corner accents. The sentiment was embossed in gold.
Supplies Used: Black and White Glitter Pine Tree Cardstock, Hunter Classic Glitter Cardstock, Dew Drops (all from The Robin's Nest); White Cardstock, Gold Cardstock, HOTP Christmas stamp set, Hunter Green Ink from Stampin' Up; Versamark Ink; Gold Embossing Powder; Snowflakes; Cuttlebug; Spellbinders Dies
Thanks so much for letting me take up your time. I enjoyed sharing and hope you got some inspiration and ideas.
