To start this fabulous holiday card you will need 5055J Ornaments FREE 2023 Digital Stamp Set.
Mentally divide your page into half. Size the Ornaments to 5-3/4"x2-3/4" and place in the center of one half. Copy and paste to second half as well. Add a sentiment of choice. I used "Greetings" from my 5035J - Candy Cane set- use what you wish! I do have a few Christmas sentiments available on my Freebies Page as well.
Print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.
Color as desired.
I chose to use COPIC® markers. A complete list of colors used are listed above.
I traced the sentiment using V01 to off-set the printing.
I used W1 to add shadows of the ornaments and ribbons.
Cut page in half.
Fussy Cut the top image.
Apply Foam® Tape to the backside of the fussy cut ornaments. Set the extra to the side for later.
Apply Glitter® Drops carefully to the snowflakes as shown. Let Dry.
Cut a 5"x7" rectangle of The Paper Studio®- Holiday Magic Snowflakes. I chose an area where the blue faded into the violet.
Using a straight edge tear a 6-1/4"x4-1/4" rectangle of the Ornament Image.
Using EZ-Tear® Tape on the backside of The Paper Studio® - Holiday Magic Snowflakes and adhere to the front of the 5"x7" cardbase.
Using EZ-Tear® Tape on the backside of the torn edge Ornaments image, center and adhere to the front of the cardbase as shown.
OPTIONAL: Using a couple of the scraps, the extra piece of the image and a name plaque; arrange and adhere to the backside of the cardbase as shown.
Turned the card back over and felt it needed a little glitz! So, I went to digging in my stash. I found some Iridescent Snowflakes different sizes & Sequins. Randomly adhered different sized Snowflakes and a few sequins to the front. It added the perfect touch. How they pick-up the blues, pinks & violets.
Wasn't that a quick and festive card creation for the Holidays?
I would like to wish everyone a blessed and joyous Christmas season! That the New Year brings God's Love and blessings to you and yours.
