Hello friends and followers! Thanks for stopping by to check out the cards I made on my Facebook live last night over on Facebook. You can like that page as well if you wish to join the Live each Saturday night HERE.
I decided to do 2 simple and easy Christmas cards featuring the Perfectly Plaid Stamp set and Heartwarming Hugs stamp sets, both paired with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.
Both of my card bases for my cards are Shaded Spruce, cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". My first layer on both cards is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".
For my first card which I called the candy cane card the DSP is cut at 2" x 5 1/4" then cut at 1". I layered it on the whisper white layer at the top and bottom. I then took a piece of the real red satin stitched ribbon and centered that between the DSP. I used a label from the Celebration Labels dies and stamped Merry Christmas in Shaded Spruce in the center of the label. Then I took the outline candy cane stamp from the Heartwarming hugs and stamped them around the label in Shaded Spruce ink as well. I then took the stripes and used Real Red ink and filled them in. I used dimensionals to adhere the label to the whisper white label and added it to my card base. I finished it off with the gold enamel dots.
For my second card I used a different pattern of the DSP from the Plaid Tidings DSP and cut it at 2 1/4" x 5 1/4" and adhered it to the lower part of my Cherry Cobbler layer. I then used one of the trees from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and inked them with VersaMark and stamped them on Shaded Spruce cardstock scraps. I then used gold embossing powder and the heat tool gun to emboss them. I punched them out using the tree punch. I used the large oval from the Stitched Shape dies and stamped my sentiment in Cherry Cobbler. I used the gold trim from the Forever Greenery ribbon pack and added two strips to the DSP. I used dimensionals on the three trees and lower part of my oval to adhere to my card. To finish this card off I added 3 of the gold enamel dots to the oval.
