Merry Christmas Part II

Today I have another Christmas card to show you that is part of a custom card order. The initial request was to create a card in non-traditional Christmas colors and to use the Holly & Ivy stamp from the Holiday Button Bits stamp set, but these two criteria don't really go together since the leaves are supposed to be green and the berries red. Of course I could have stamped the Holly & Ivy in another color, but I talked to V. and we agreed to go for the traditional red and green color combo and add some sparkling glitter.

Last Friday I went to the Kreadoe craft fair with my mom and one of her friends where I bought glitter in various colors at Craft Glitter. I also got their Punch and Stick double sided adhesive sheets. You just cut or punch a shape or strip - like I did on this card - and sprinkle it with glitter.



Supplies: All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless noted otherwise Cardstock: Rustic White, Pure Poppy, Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft) | Patterned paper: Distressed Dots | Clear stamps: Holiday Button Bits, Mixed Messages | Ink: Ripe Avocado, Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo, Versafine (Vintage Sepia) | Buttons: Pure Poppy, White & Cream Mix | Ribbon: Pure Poppy | Twine: May Arts | Tools: Small Scalloped Border Die, sewing machine | Glitter, adhesive sheets: Craft Glitter | Other: tag

Have a good weekend!

  2. Juist in traditionele kleuren ziet dit kaartje er prachtig uit! Het lintje aan de zijkant is zo'n leuk detail. En wat gaaf: die glitterstreep! Ik geloof dat ik volgend jaar ook maar weer tijd moet vrijmaken om naar de KreaDoe te komen:)
