Hello, Friends! Can you believe it’s the first Wednesday in September already? This year is just flying by, and I have to tell you, I’m having a hard time keeping up with the speed of it! I have another lovely Festive Christmas card to share with you on this Heartfelt Creations Wednesday. You’ll find a complete supply list and a detailed tutorial for making this card at the end of this post.
One of the things I love about the Festive Christmas Collection is its versatility. You can use the same papers and stamps with different techniques and achieve completely new looks. In this card, I stamped the Festive Christmas Background Stamp onto Vellum, then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I tore a section of the sentiment out and layered it over my paper. The result was a wonderful frosty, holiday card.
Do you have a lot of holiday cards to make this year? I’m curious…do you make multiple copies of the same card, or do you make a stack of all different cards to send out to friends and family? I’d love to hear your answer in the comment section below.
Thanks for stopping by…I’ll have another Festive Christmas card to share with you on Friday, so be sure to stop by then.
Warmest Christmas Wishes
