Monochromatic Christmas cards:
Hey cardmaking friends, welcome back. Sandi MacIver here with a little Christmas Card inspiration for you today.
Christmas in July seems to be the theme all over the cardmaking world this month.
It's a great time to start mass producing those holiday cards before life gets super hectic.
I was playing with some of the new products in this month's release and came up with two Monochromatic Christmas Cards that are great for mass producing.
They are also flat, so no extra postage required...that's a big deal when you are sending out a lot of cards right?
How to create the Monochromatic Christmas Cards:
Combine the two with a nice juicy "Kraft" ink Pad to create these simple holiday cards.
To add some bling, gold emboss the deer from the Joyeau Noel stamp set and mat the art piece with gold mirror cardstock.
Finally, embellish with the Sands of Time Gem Mix.
These are super high quality gems, they are cut like diamonds. They also have multi colors in them so they really glimmer.
Next, the exact same layout, but flipped sideways.
I couldn't resist that little bird stamp from the Joyeau Noel stamp set, he deserves his very own card.....same instructions as last card.
This time I added the gems over the leaves on the branch.
- Base: White 4-1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5-1/2", (bird card), 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 score and fold at 4-1/4".
- Art Piece: white 2-3/4 x 4"
- Gold Mat: Gold Foil paper 2-7/8 x 4-1/8
Hope you enjoyed my quick and easy Monochromatic Christmas Cards today and will give these a try.
Until next time, Happy Stamping and get working on those holiday cards, LOL.
