Oh my goodness me the Holiday Catalogue is quite simply stunning. I’ve just placed a “little” order this morning and hopefully next week I’ll have a new card made from one of the gorgeous suites featured in it.
Luckily I was able to place an early pre-order for the beautiful Carols of Christmas bundle and this week’s Christmas card features that set.
I’ve previously used the little deer in cards I’ve made with this set but this week I’m featuring one of the big sentiments in the stamp set, as well as the gorgeous little ornament stamps and dies.
I CASED this card from a lovely one I saw on Pinterest but I forgot to save it and now can’t remember who to attribute this design to! The original card featured Tranquil Tide as the background, but I’ve decided to use black…not very traditional I know, but it does make the other colours really pop.
You could use any coloured ink to make the baubles, just make sure you stamp first and then die cut using the magnetic platform. On close inspection I realise I didn’t line my stamp and dies up perfectly–I should have used some washi tape to hold the dies in place, but I still think my little baubles look very pretty. The finishing touch is the tiniest rhinestone basic jewel in the centre of the ornaments.
I love how this sentiment fits perfectly into the layering squares framelits…I’ve used the scalloped layer to cut the silver foil sheet that sits behind the sentiment. The silver theme is continued with the bow made out of 1/8 inch silver ribbon, adhered with a stampin dimensional.
This is such a quick and easy card to make and definitely will be one that I reproduce with a variety of colours.
And my little white reindeer are loving getting dressed up in different ribbons and pom poms to be part of my photo shoot every week!
