Hello, Creative Embellishments fans!
Sandi Clarkson here with you today sharing a couple of quick and easy Christmas Cards for your last minute gift giving or card exchange!
This set turned out really cute in a minimum of time, at least for me!
Both cards used blank white card bases in a 5 x 6.5 inch size. Next, I cut the plaid patterned paper a quarter inch smaller all the way around. Paper is from Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas. Then I used cream card stock from that same paper pack, trimmed it with a height of 4 inches. This served as a nice, light background to allow the chipboard to really pop.
I am in love with the new Scribble Tree and Mistletoe set, especially the mistletoe.
I thought the mistletoe could actually be used all year around as a floral layer somewhat like flourishes. I’ve used 2 packages so that I would have 2 bunches of mistletoe. I opted to place them right next to each other and let them mimic a mistletoe ball.
These were altered with a mix in Ranger ink and oxide in Rustic Wilderness, Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron. The sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments set was altered the same.
Here is a close-up for you.
I added some red Stickles to make these more festive and then added a red ribbon ribbon.
Apparently, I need to shop for more red ribbon as my stash is getting low. 🙂
And here is that sweet sentiment mentioned above.
I decided to make a second card since I was kind of on a roll. I just duplicated my design but changed out the focal chipboard to the Pine Cone Clusters. I’ve used 2 sets even though the set contains 3 branches because I wanted an exact match so that I could balance the image better.
Again, I used the same colors but added a bit more Twisted Citron to these chipboard pieces.
The cones were stained with Walnut and when dry, I applied some Cinammon Stickles to them.
For a little pizzazz I added a few copper rhinestones here and there.
And a close-up of the sentiment stained with Walnut.
I think that’s about it!
