Carols of Christmas

Today's card is one of the cards we're making this week end in our Christmas card class.  It uses the Carols of Christmas bundle.  I live in Houston, and many people believe we don't experience a change-of-season here.  However, my walk in the woods at sunset with my dog was pure joy.  We scuffed through a deep layer of colored leaves in a beautiful mild evening.  I love our changing seasons!

Falling leaves reminds me of how soon the holidays will be here and how busy we all get this time of year.  But with a bit of early planning, we'll get it all done!   I'm already well into making Christmas Cards to send this year.  Today's card is a wonderfully, simple, quick card, and its one of the cards we're making in our Christmas Card class this week end.        

The basecard for this card is Thick Whisper White.  Then a layer of Night of Navy is die cut using the Card Front Builder Thinlits.  These Thinlits created the stars and sparkles in the sky.  This same set created the trees, which are die cut in Whisper White.  

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy on a die cut oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, and mounted on a scalloped layer of Gold Foil. Rhinestone Basic Jewels accent the stamped sentiment.  Gold Fold Sheets layer is mounted behind just the moon in the Night of Navy Layer.  

The center of the card includes a strip of The Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape with gold foil highlights.  The Carol of Christmas bundles will save you 10% over purchasing the stamps and dies separately.

Add a little silver sparkle to your Christmas Cards.

  • Silver embossed star from Tin of Tags set

Silver Star Christmas Cards

Although my Occasions catalog pre-order arrived today, I'm still in love with the stamp sets from the retiring Holiday catalog.

Silver Embossed Christmas Card
Click for larger image to see the faux stitching around the sentiment

I was cleaning up my workspace to make space for all my new items -- its like Christmas came early! -- and I happened across this wonderful black and silver dotted paper from the Halloween night Specialty Designer Paper and gave a little shreek as it was embossed with silver dots!  I quickly stamped the stars from Tin of Tags set in Versamark and Silver embossed on Baskic Black cardstock.

As I started looking for matching ribbons, I was about to give up when I spotted this sparkly, already-tied bow on my desk.  It was from the 3/8" Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack from the Holiday catalog, and it looked like it was meant to be part of this card.

Silver embossing is extremely difficult to photograph and after trying two different carmeras and three different lenses, I finally gave up.   What doesn't show very well is the wonderful faux stitching around the sentiment made with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. It took longer to photograph the card than it took to make it!

Stamps: Tin of Tags set
Ink: Versamark, 

Paper: Basic Black, Silver Foil Sheets, Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals, Block C, Stampin' Scrub, Magnetic Platform, Standard Plates, Big Shot

There's still time to order this stamp set to make your own cards.  Here are product numbers for the products used on this card, but I would order in the next day or two to have before Christmas.
