Blue Fern Yuletide Old Fashioned Christmas Card with Reneabouquets Beautiful Board
Hello, Friends! I am loving the nostalgic vibe from this Blue Fern Yuletide Old Fashioned Christmas Card. Warm woolen plaids and old barn boards take me back in time, how about you? Now that Thanksgiving has passed, we are in full on Christmas mode here at Kathy by Design. The little love birds on this card make me feel very merry , indeed!
If you are looking for a way to add visual interest to your Christmas cards, why not try adding some circular elements? After I removed the white centers from this wreath die cut, I replaced them with small images from the 8×8 paper pad. Then I heat embossed Reneabouquets Small Santa Clock and added it to the mix. Now the card just needs to be embellished.
Evergreen Trees, Snowflakes and Christmas Roses
First I altered a small sisal tree with ivory paint and glitter. Then I clustered up some beautiful Reneabouquets Christmas flowers, mini pine cones and greenery around the base of the tree to ground it.
This wonderful Beautiful Board Clock adds some brightness to these darker, vintage paper patterns. Shell buttons add a bit of shine, and more flowers is always a good idea. Spatter the card with white paint to simulate falling snow for the perfect wintry feel.
These snowflake corners shimmer with glittery embossing powder in real life. I’ve dressed it up even more with some flat back pearls.
A Peek Inside
Nothing drives away winter’s chill like a cup of hot cocoa! So I created a box pocket inside the card to hold a packet. The pocket is actually embossed grey cardstock that I brushed with white paint and metallic glaze. For some reason, it photographed blue. The camera does strange things sometimes.
The pocket also holds a little postcard, peppermint stick, gift wrapped Biscoff cookies and a Ghiradelli Chocolate. Now it’s the perfect little Secret Santa or office exchange gift.
