Hi, I thought I was finished making Christmas cards this year but after seeing Melissa’s card (which you can see in this post here), I knew I had to CASE it (Copy And Share Everything). Melissa gave me her blessing to do so. (Remember, you are welcome to use the cards you see online or in the catalogue for inspiration. Just remember to give proper credit to the original designer). I used the Merry Little Labels stamp set for my card as well as the fabulous Christmas Staircase Thinlits dies (I still haven’t begun to scratch the surface of this die set; it’s incredible!).
Here’s the card…
I’ve used the same basic design for my card, however, I moved the strip of paper to horizontally across the page instead of vertically. The vertical direction of the sentiment meant I had to position the punched out shapes differently as well. I decided to add a bit of texture to the white cardstock and used the Polka Dots Basic embossing folder to achieve this. Instead of the snowflake, I used the boughs from the Christmas Staircase Thinlits die set. I thought my card needed a little something else so I added some holly berries and I think this touch finished the card off perfectly. To create the berries, I coloured rhinestones with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker.
I think it is amazing how one card design can spark another one which is so different. If you are inspired by this card design, I’d love to see what you come up with!
