Whimsy & Wonder for Christmas Monthly Blog Hop. We are back for another Blog Hop Sharing all things Christmas. If you are following along with the hop you will probably have visited the lovely Sara Sayers last.
As we get closer to Christmas these projects start to look a little more sensible, but actually, starting your Christmas Cards in January is really sensible. Start early and avoid the stress of last minute crafting.
Today’s card is actually really quick to put together, especially once the die cutting is done. There is almost no stamping on this card, other than a tiny amount on the inside. So, let’s look at the outside of the card first. You may notice that I have only used Patterned Paper, specifically the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty paper. This is GORGEOUS! I mean REALLY GORGEOUS, and not traditional at all.
I have die cut three of the trees from the paper using the Christmas Trees Dies. So simple and quick. Then it was simply a case of cutting a couple of pieces of the paper for the background and a strip of the stunning holographic striped paper to run across the join!
All mounted on a Mint Macaron mat and a Blushing Bride card base, with a Basic White liner, stamped and coloured in Light Flirty Flamingo, Light Mossy Meadow and Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. I hope you enjoy the project. Remember you can use the layout with any of our patterned papers and it is great if you have a few smaller pieces to use up.
Now why not follow the hop along by clicking the Next Button and visiting the lovely Helen Jennings?
