Fall has arrived in Idaho! And on time. It’s my favorite season of all — I would not complain if it were fall all year round. And even though I love fall for itself, part of my love for it is all of the Christmas planning it involves. And Christmas card making! You will probably start seeing a lot of Christmas cards on this blog in the next few weeks. They’re my favorite cards to make; in fact, I could make only Christmas cards and be a very happy camper.
I used the sketch at Fab Friday for this card.
I used the Bracket Label punch to punch out the Silver Foil shapes. I stamped the smallest snowflake from the Festive Flurry stamp set in Versamark ink, then embossed with Silver embossing powder, and cut out with the Festive Flurry framelits. I then punched 3/4″ Circles out of Silver Glimmer paper and punched each of the shapes from the Merry Minis punch pack out of Red Glimmer paper. I used Dimensionals between each layer.
I embossed the sentiment from the Tags 4 You set in Silver and punched it out using the Bracket Label, then punched a label out of Red Glimmer paper and cut that in half to frame the sentiment. The silver button is retired but is available on the Clearance Rack right now (item #129325) while supplies last. This is one of my all-time favorite buttons.
You can find all the products I used to make the card in my online Stampin’ Up! store.
