A simple christmas card

Inlägget postat av: on December 21, 2017

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing two simple christmas cards that were made last minute. I needed them to be done quickly because they needed to be mailed out. That’s also why I kept them as flat as possible, so they don’t get damaged during their way to the recipient. This is the first one I made.

On this card I created a shaker element that I wanted to look like an ornament. So I’ve cut a circle from light blue cardstock that became my shaker window.

Inside this die cut circle I created a winter woods scene. I used a small circle cut from masking tape, put it on white cardstock and then used Distress Inks to create the background. There’s also a snowy ground, but this one is covered from the glitter inside the shaker.

Then I used the tree from the Fantasy 3 stamp set an stamped it four times, variing in height to make them look different tall.

Afterwards I used white embossing powder to heat emboss the snowflakes over my scene.

The shaker is filled with glass glitter.

To make the bauble look perfect I added a die cut hanger with a bow to the top of my circle.

Since I had die cut the circle from the left half of my card there was enough room for one of the Merry Christmas text from the Merry Christmas x2 stamp set. It was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Hope to see you all back again for my second card.

Hugs, Kathrin
