Year of Cheer

The new Holiday Catalogue is finally here and has some gorgeous products, and of course I want it all.  I have selected one of my favourite new patterned papers, the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper along with a new stamp set Snowflake Sentiments to create some Christmas Cards.

I cannot believe that I am thinking Christmas already!

Over the next week I will be posting three cards that I have made using these products.

This card sketch is one that I cased from Barbara Anders, different products used by the layout is the same.  I love the clean lines of the layout.

To make this card you need to the following pieces:


A4 Whisper White Thick cardstock cut in half lengthwise to create the card base
Designer Series Paper 14.8cm x 10.5cm
Strip of Gold Foil Sheet
Scraps of Gold Foil Sheet and Whisper White cardstock for snowflakes.


Fold card base.

Stamp the 'Season's Greetings' in Versamark ink on the bottom right corner.  Add Gold Embossing Powder and heat set this.

Measure 6cm from the bottom on one side of the DSP and 6cm from the top on the other side.  This creates the diagonal cutting line, cut on the diagonal. NOTE: You will get two cards from this piece of 10.5cm x 14.8cm DSP.

Add the strip of Gold Foil Sheet to the bottom diagonal edge and adhere this to the card front.

Cut out the snowflakes from the Gold Foil Sheet and Whisper White cardstock. I used the dies from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits.  Layer the three different snowflakes together and add a Gold Metallic Enamel Shape for the centre.  Adhere this to the card front.

For the inside of the card stamp the card centre sentiment and the snowflake images from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.  This stamp set has the matching sentiments for the inside of the card as well as the great images for the card front.
