The problem with my Christmas card production is my love for embellished cards, with lots of florals. I tell myself, “just 2-3 cards a day, simple, flat, easy to mail” and what do I end up with? Big fat cards that need to be hand delivered, that’s what! but I am in love with this latest one. I started out rummaging through one of my drawers looking for something, inspiration, I suppose. Anyway, I found some old card bases, and thought maybe I could play around with it, so I had to rummage some more, and found some dies that were designed to go with these type of card bases.
For this card, I used Heartfelt Creations Holiday Star paper, and one of the 6”x6” shutter fold cards, as well as the small Festive Poinsettia stamp and die set.
Here is a close up of the flowers
I did something a little different, at the bend of the shutters, I threaded in an organza ribbon to tie it together, and I used some little Velcro dots to keep the shutter flaps together (now that I think about it, I guess I could have glued them together). Then I just started fiddling around with flowers – decided to stamp these in lavender to go with the paper color – and hot glued them down. I have a little video below of the full card.
I think it turned out pretty good, and I really like it! I hope you do too. Thanks for stopping by, and please leave me a comment sometime!
