We hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday. Can you believe it is officially December? That means it is time to get moving on all of your Christmas cards, and we are here to help! This card from the Holiday Trimmings II Card Making Kit is the perfect place to start.
This collection is the encore version of our popular Holiday Trimmings Card Making Kit. Two of our favorite elements in the kit are the glitter flourishes and foiled 3D bows, and this card uses both of them to make a simple but stunning statement. When you finish crafting with the contents of this green box, you’ll have 30 finished (and highly embellished) cards.
To start, we selected the kraft dot card base and adhered a 4”x6” red striped layer. Make sure not to adhere it completely to the card just yet- you’ll be tucking the gold flourishes behind this piece!
Now we’re going to show you a trick that will make your glittered flourishes go a long way. Use a craft knife to cut two of the medallions in half, adhere to each corner of the red layer as shown and tuck the ends underneath. Don’t forget that these embellishments are already stickers- just peel off the back!
We chose the wreath, 3D bow and a Happy Christmas sentiment to finish off this card. The wreath is the perfect size to cover up the rough edges of the medallions! We recommend using foam dots or double-sided adhesive to secure the paper bow, and we love curling the tails with a pencil for added dimension.
Sign the back and it’s ready to mail! How easy is that? Here are a couple more cards we made from this kit to get you in the spirit…
Last but not least, more thank yous we received from Anna Griffin | Create attendees! These two beautiful projects were given to us at the event from Sally Fasano and Dawn von Rosen in California.
The mail just keeps coming and we could not be more grateful for this outpouring of support!
Bye for now!
