Hello! It's Sara, from Much Love, Sara. Today I'm actually sharing two Christmas cards with you. In the August release, there were two beautiful floral Christmas stamps, and I wanted to share two cards, that use these images to fill the background.
I stamped a panel of kraft card stock, with the same holly image, using coordinating ink. Then I stamped the sentiment in Black Hybrid Ink. The colored images were added using foam tape, and then the overhang was trimmed off. I attached the card front to a white card base, made from heavyweight card stock. To finish the card, I added a few gems from the Autumn Leaves Gem Mix.
For today's second card, I began by stamping, and gold heat embossing, the image fromA Christmas Flower, onto vellum multiple times (three whole images were used in this card). Then, I watercolored inside the flower portion, with a little watered downTrue Christmas Red Paper Glitz. Once the watercolor had dried, I die cut the images with thecoordinating die, before adhering the images to a panel of red card stock. I trimmed the excess off the edges, and used some of those trimmings to fill in the panel.
To create the sentiment cluster, I die cut the Joy from the theSlim Line Oversized Joy to the World Word Die, from black card stock, three times. I adhered those die cuts together, and then stamped and gold heat embossed the " 'tis the season" sentiment from the Lots of Christmas Cheer Stamp Set, onto green card stock. Then I cut that embossed sentiment into a strip. I added a strip of gold card stock, and layered all of these elements together on top of a die cut vellum circle.
I attached the card front to a white card base, made from heavyweight card stock. To finish the card, I added a few gems from theCandy Cane Gem Mix.
I hope you enjoyed today's cards. Find more cards using products from the AugustRelease over on my blog. Have a fantastic Tuesday!
