I think this card is perfect for today since our temperatures are well below zero and the wind chill is making it even colder! So, I made another Christmas card.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made from red cardstock. I also cut two red mats, one at 4 3/4"x3 1/2" and the second one at 4"x2 3/4." I cut three white mats. The first one at 5 3/8"x4 1/8," the second one at 4 5/8"x3 3/8," and the third one at 3 7/8"x2 5/8." I temorarily adhered the three white pieces togethter and stamped some snowflakes on them, with some of the snowflakes overlapping all three layers. It is a technique that I learned called Triple Time Stamping. You can see a video tutorial here.
After stamping all my images I heat embossed them with a glittery white embossing powder. I then adhered my white layers to the red mats and adhered them all to the card base. I used Joys of the Season to cut my wreath. I cut three of the same wreath in three different sizes. The largest size is 4," the middle size is 3 1/2" and the smallest one is 3 1/4." I layered them together and covered their berries with x-mas red Stickles. I ran some brown and white twine through three buttons and used it to tie a bow in the fourth. I then adhered the buttons to the corners of the middle mat. The sentiment is stamped in jumbo java ink on a banner that was die cut from a Spellbinders die called "Ribbon Banners." I adhered the banner with two different thicknesses of foam tape so that it was lower on the sides and higher in the middle.
I made this card for the following challenges:
