Christmas Inspiration: Wishing You Joy


Here's another Christmas card to inspire us to get some made ahead.  It came together really quickly.  Materials used:
  • JustRite/Spellbinders "Antique Labels One" dies
  • Spellbinders "Poinsettia" Dies
  • JustRite "Noel Christmas Ornaments" stamps
  • CheeryLynn "Grateful Lattice" die
  • Hot Off the Press "Red Jewel Dazzles"
  • Red silk flower from my stash
  • Red ink
  • Clear embossing powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Grand Caliber Die Cut Machine

Method:
  • Background - I cut a 1/4 sheet piece of red paper with the Grateful Lattice die and glued it to the white card base using a glue stick. 
  • Focal - The silk flower was adorned with die cuts from the Poinsettia die and some Jewel Dazzles.  
  • Sentiment - I cut a piece of white glimmer paper using an Antique Labels One die.  Leaving the paper in the die, I lightly inked the edges using a sponge applicator dipped into the stamping ink, using a circular motion for a softened edge, then removed the die to show the remaining white frame.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment red ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
