Embossed Christmas

Are you looking for inspiration? Look around you. Anything and everything around you can inspire you to create. You can even draw from prior experiences or past events. I thought of the movie, "A Christmas Story," to make this card. Thoughts? 

   Season of Joy
   Flurry of Wishes

   Basic White A-2, 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)
   Cherry Cobbler 2-1/4 x 3-1/3
   Warmth & Cheer DSP 2-1/2 x 4-1/4

   Archival Basic Black
   White Craft Ink

   Heat Embossing
   Dry Embossing

   White Embossing Powder
   Embossing Buddy
   Fire Circles Rhinestone Brads
   Frosted Sequins
   Fancy Frosted Sequins
   White Glitter Tape
   Cable Knit Embossing Folder

First, I dry embossed my DSP panel using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder. 

I then stamped and heat set the tree image on the Cherry Cobbler panel.

I adhered the DSP panel to the bottom of the card front and added a strip of glitter tape on the seam. You can use a black strip or other ribbon if you choose.

I stamped the sentiment on the top-center of the card.

Next, I attached the Cherry Cobbler panel to the card front using dimensionals.

Lastly, I added some sequins and adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. Wonderful tree and layout on this card. I agree look around; inspiration is everywhere. Often times I mail my Christmas cards on December 1st then since there is so much Christmas inspiration I keep creating to really build up my stash for the next year.

    1. That is a great idea. I do have to make Christmas cards all year long, otherwise, I will fall short. Thank you for dropping by here and commenting. I do appreciate it tremendously.
