Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hi Friends!

This evening I am sharing another Christmas card (FYI- I am so far behind on my cards for this year). 

This card was designed using the new Tim Holtz Festive Bouquet Dies along with the new Carta Bella Welcome Winter 6x6 paper pad-  from the October release along with other stamps, paper and dies – all from Stamp Simply!  

Just a reminder,
there’s still time to save on Tim Holtz products- use code TIM10 (while supplies last until 10/31/21).

I will be will be linking this card to the Word Art Wednesday #515-#516 “Anything Goes” Challenge.  

If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the Word Art Wednesday Challenge site yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Trim a piece of the dark snowflake designer paper from the Carta Bella Welcome Winter 6x6 paper pad to approx. 3 ¾” x 5”, mount onto white cardstock, trim to approx. 4” x 5 ¼”.   

Mount onto a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” black cardstock and adhere to a white card base.

Die cut a piece of white cardstock with the medium die from the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace- Hemstitch Rectangle Dies

De-static the upper right hand area of the rectangle die cut with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Wonder of Christmas Sentiments stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Using the Festive Bouquet Dies, die cut the poinsettia dies from a piece of the red patterned designer paper from the Craft Consortium Ink Drops- Vivid 6x6 paper pad.

Die cut the sprigs and leaves from light green and dark green cardstock and die cut the centers from yellow cardstock. Use green distress ink onto the layered parts of the light green cardstock. 

Piece the poinsettia and leaves together and adhere to the card front.

Use a clear glitter marker to add shimmer to the flowers to finish off the card.
