Simple Merry Christmas Card

I love challenges! This card was made for a challenge called Build A Card Challenge. We had to make a card using an Embossing Folder, Real Red, Whisper White, Three Layers and Twine. Here’s what I made!

Challenges are a great way to get started with creating. They give you something specific to aim for.

Tips & Instructions

  • Real Red Card Base - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4

  • Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper Layer (red stripes) 5 1/4 x 2

  • Whisper White Layer - 5 1/4 x 2 1/4, emboss with Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (use 3D Embossing Plate)

  • Adhere striped layer to embossed layer (make sure it ends up at 5 1/4 x 4 so it fits nicely on the card base) and wrap red ribbon around the seam, then adhere to card base.

  • Whisper White scrap - cut with Stitched Rectangle Die & stamp sentiment with Shaded Spruce Ink

  • Punch Christmas Tree from Perfectly Plaid Designer Series Paper and adhere to sentiment label, then adhere label over ribbon using Dimensionals

  • Add Red Rhinestones to tree

  • Tie 2 pieces of White Twine into a bow and add with a Mini Glue Dot
