Hello Janet here with another CAS (Clean And Simple) card for you. It’s nearly that time again, so I made a Christmas card using the newly released set by Avery Elle leaving lots of white space.
Embossing A Card Base
I opened my card base embossed the front side only using the Stained Glass die by Catherine Pooler Designs. Check your diecutting machine for how to emboss with a die.
I diecut a small wonky scalloped frame from an Avery Elle die set from Neenah and adhered this to the card base in center of panel.
I stamped the snowman and lamppost from the Christmas Magic stamp set by Avery Elle in archival ink so that I could use my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers to colour them in. I left the snowman uncoloured. (The colours will be shown in the supply list below). They were them die cut out using the co ordinating dies. I adhered to the card by placing foam tape (on the light of the lamp post and the head of the snowman), to give dimension.
I used the sentiment ‘Merry Everything’ and stamped this, using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform so I could double stamp onto the textured surface to the right of the lamp post. I also stamped the small snowflakes to give the appearance it was snowing in Fiesta Blue ink.
Finishing The Card
I think the embossed background gives it a subtle finish with just a little dimension with the snowman and lamp post up on foam tape. When do you start making your Christmas cards?
