Greetings friends! Today I made my first cards for the upcoming Christmas holiday. I know it seems like Summer just ended but I need to get a head start on the cards and tags and all the holiday making because it will be here soon!
This month's "Joyous Bird" creates gorgeous floral cards, scrapbook pages, and more. You can see the stamp set HERE.
The set this month really lends itself to being heat embossed. Its a beautiful, delicate dove....so elegant and sends the perfect message of Peace and Joy.
For this card I embossed the bird and the branches in gold. I colored the florals with markers, and then I fussy cut everything out.
Then I took a piece of blue card stock, and ink blended Chipped Sapphire Distress ink. I used a white pigment ink to stamp the stars and snowflakes. I assembled the cut out pieces as shown and added a few sequins for some extra sparkle.
My second card used much of the same techniques except I layered some gold card stock as a frame around the edge. Again, I used my favorite must have Spellbinders Hemstitch rectangles. (you really need these!)
