Exciting, right?!



As part of the hop today I created two Christmas cards and a video tutorial as well. The cards feature sentiments from the Big And Bold Christmas Sentiments and the Christmas Fun Card Sentiments stamp sets by Scrapbook.com. They were both embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder by Lawn Fawn.


I created the backgrounds on some white card bases. For the red one I blended Scrapbook.com Inks in Cardinal Red and Ballet Slippers and for the blue one I used Midnight Blue and Black.


The stars were created from Lawn Fawn Pearlescent Vellum and die cut with the Nested Stars dies. To avoid any glue showing through the vellum, I turned the stars into stickers using Double Sided Adhesive Sheets.


The images that I used to decorate the cards come from the Lawn Fawn Winter Unicorn and Ho-Ho-Holidays stamp sets. I stamped them with Premium Hybrid Black ink by Scrapbook.com and colored them with Zig Markers.


I adhered everything to my A2 card bases, and that finished off the cards.

  1. Darling cards! Great backgrounds! We have so many traditions from finding the perfect tree, to dated ornaments, to photos with Santa! Can't wait to celebrate this year with the 2 1/2 year old and 7 month old!

  2. One of my favorite parts of the holidays are making Christmas cards. Each one is tailored to the recipient, so no two cards are the same.

  11. thanks for the tip on adhering the stars.
    Hadn't thought about using the double-sided
    sheets. I look forward to getting my
    Santa’s out of storage and putting them on
    display. There's a lot of them so
    it takes awhile.

  17. I am going to have to get that stamp! Super cute idea!!! What a beautiful card! Christmas for me is filled with so many memories. My favorite memory is being with my Grama and seeing what color her tree was each year … either traditional (multi color w/ silver icicles), or a Chrismon tree with white/gold ornaments (all of which were hand-made). This will be our 2nd Christmas without her. I would give anything to see her tree again (she was 102 the last time she put her tree up ... She would have been 104 on Dec. 3rd.) I miss her and all her traditions! (a.k.a. Corrie Hanson @ cozycorner1902@gmail.com)

  31. Good tip about the vellum. My daughter owns/runs a photo booth business and at Christmas has a lot of events with Santa. Sometimes my 4 year old grandson gets to go. He thinks all the Santa's are one and the same. So he thinks he is good friends with HoHo. his name for Santa.
