(Video)--Retro Christmas Card

Hi Everyone!  

It's Christmas in August!  

 

A little early?  Maybe, but I have been loving using this Avery Elle Waves Die and thought of another fun project I wanted to show you.  

Blog 1

 

I paired the die with Avery Elle's Kitsch Christmas and Retro Ornaments stamp sets and turned it into a fun shaker card.  It reminds me of those sweet Little Golden Books from a long time ago.  I have a video below that shows how I created the card.  Enjoy!

Make It Monday: Monochrome Color Pop

Hi Everyone!

Today, I'm playing along with this week's Make It Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink.  I'm in my happy place using a graphic stamp and my favorite color combo to do a monochrome card with a pop of color.  I used the Cover Plate: Cozy Christmas 2 Die and cut it three times.  Once in black, light gray, and dark gray.  I then popped up the black piece on the front of a white notecard with foam tape and inlaid the sides with pieces of the dark and light gray.  This gives a bit of a gradient look.  

I embossed in white, a sentiment from You've Been Framed: Hexagon along with a triangle from the set above and below.  I embossed another set of triangles in Aqua Zing embossing powder, trimmed them out, and added those above and below with foam tape.

This no-nonsense design is perfect for making multiple cards too--you could just change up the 'pop" of color on each card.

Thanks for joining me today!
