More Awesome Demo Christmas Cards
Michelle Hoover shared this beautiful card created with the items in the Vintage Christmas Card Bundle: Bells & Boughs stamp set and Deck The Halls Designer Paper. Don't forget to check out ALL of the Holiday Bundles, priced at 20% off, to save on your cardmaking and holiday gift items!
The Cherry Cobbler background is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder. She used the Always Artichoke Seam Binding for a coordinated bow. The eye-catching sparkle trim around the circle is Champagne Glass Glitter, adhered with Tombow Multipurpose White Glue.
Darla Eigenschink created this lovely card with a too cool Ornament Punch window. I love how she paired it with the Earth stamp from the Peaceful Season Hostess stamp set. "Peace on Earth" is stamped on a pattern from the Deck The Halls paper. The card front is wrapped up with Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.
Michelle also made this pretty Serene Snowflakes card. She did some fun layered stamping here, starting with Soft Suede on the background, then embossed in white over the top. The largest snowflake is stamped with Soft Suede on Whisper White, then cut out and popped up with a Basic Pearl in the center. She trimmed the card with a lovely combination of Victoria Crochet Trim over a Deck The Halls Fabric ruffle.
Did you know you can get either the Candy Cane Christmas Fabric or Deck The Halls Fabric for 50% off with the Online Spectacular that ends tomorrow?! It's a great time to try the fabric (and we'll be seeing more in upcoming Minis!).
Speaking of fabric, Michelle used a circle scallop of the Deck The Halls Fabric here to create a soft, textured layer under the gold embossed poinsettias from the Bells & Boughs set.
When you order the fabric, be sure to order Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets for easy application onto papercrafts. Michelle applied on the fabric on an Adhesive Sheet before running it through the Big Shot with the Circle Scallop Die. Once it's die-cut, just peel off the backing and it's ready to adhere to your card stock. This is especially great for intricately cut dies—much easier than trying to use SNAIL or 2-way Glue to attach complex shapes!
The background is another pattern from Deck The Halls paper, so this project is another example of something you can make with the Vintage Christmas Card Bundle items.
Michelle tried a new embossing technique with this card—glitter embossing! She stamped the ornament from the Tags Til Christmas set with VersaMark, then sprinkled a mixture of Silver Galaxy Fine Glitter and Silver Embossing Powder before heating with the Heat Tool. Look how sparkly it is!!! And, I love that she accented the ornament with Basic Rhinestones even more of a bling-factor!
Darla showed us a wintery card created with the Northern Flurry Impressions Folder lightly sponged with Night of Navy. She used some of the retired Bride DSP inked with Night of Navy, tied with Organza Ribbon for contrast.
Michelle said that this card was very popular at her recent events! How can you go wrong with the traditional looking Santa from the Jolly Old Saint Nick set?! She colored his face with a Blushing Bride (or Blush Blossom, they still have this "retired" color in the marker for skin-tones) marker, then it looks like she add Positively Pink Watercolor Crayon for the cheeks. Using the 2-Way Glue Pen, she applied Dazzling Diamonds to the fluffy parts of the santa hat—love it!
Here's one more from Michelle. I like the simple "candy cane" color combination! The ornaments from the Tree Trimmings set are stamped in Real Red, then the image was covered with 2-Way Glue Pen adhesive and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.
Whew! A lot of beautiful cards! Love all the ideas! Thanks for sharing with us!
