Create It Wednesday ~ {Oh Christmas}

Today, I’m bringing you a CAS (clean & simple) card using the new {Oh Christmas} Stamp Set. My card is really highlighting the heartwarming sentiment that comes with this stamp set. It has every design element you could possibly love—a heart, an arrow, script/cursive, varying font size, and presence!

I went with traditional holiday colors…and of course, some gold embossing! How to create this look:

  1. Create a window in a piece of red cardstock using a decorative frame. You could use a die or a cutting machine (I used a stock frame already loaded into my Brother Scan-n-Cut).
  2. Stamp and heat emboss the fabulous sentiment in gold embossing powder. Line up your open die cut over the sentiment and pop up with lots of foam adhesive.
  3. Heat emboss the pine boughs in gold embossing powder on green cardstock and fussy cut, leaving enough green to add some color to the card. Arrange and glue in place. Add some sequins for sparkle…the holidays always call for sparkle in my opinion 🙂

 

Tip: I stink at lining things up perfectly the first time. So when I cut windows for projects like this, I cut it on a much larger sheet of cardstock than I actually need, then line up my window. I mark where I need to trim my cardstock, and presto—a perfectly lined up window!

I hope you give this look a try for your holiday cards. The {Oh Christmas} Stamp Set gives you lots of creative options.

Thanks for stopping by…and go create!
