Wow can’t believe we are already thinking about Christmas! I guess it is a good idea to start working on your cards now so you can enjoy the holidays. All my supplies are from Stampin’ Up. I took a piece of vellum and stamped the poinsettia from Reason for the Season using Versamark ink. I then applied Basic Black embossing powder and heat set it. Using Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Garden Green markers color on the back of the vellum to color in the center, petals, and leaves of the poinsettia. Cut a panel of white card stock and using the Project Life corner rounder punch, round the corner of the white and the vellum. Fold the vellum over the top of the white and stick down the back flap using tear-n-tape. Apply a bit of adhesive to the back of the poinsettia and stick the front of the vellum to the white. Use tear-n-tape to attach the panel to a Cherry Cobbler card base that is a top fold. Wrap a piece of gold 1/8” ribbon around the top of the card and tie in a bow. Stamp the sentiment with Encore Gold pigment ink and emboss with gold embossing powder. Your card is now ready to be mailed. ~ Robbie
And here is Kimberly's
I started by trimming a piece of red cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". The patterned paper is from a Penny Black 6x6 paper pad called "Wintertime". I love 6x6 paper pads because the patterns work well for card making. I trimmed the patterned paper to 4" x 5 1/4".
The Neenah Solar White Cardstock is trimmed to 3 3/4" x 2 1/2". Adhere this piece to red cardstock and trim a small border. The images are stamped directly onto the cardstock. Both the image and the sentiment are from the SOA Holiday Magic Collection. I stamped the Holly Leaves (The Ton) with Versamark Ink and embossed with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder. The berries are stamped with Ranger's Classic Cherry Dye Ink. The greenery is stamped with Ranger's Electric Lime Dye Ink. The sentiment (Neat and Tangled - Bright Baubles) is stamped using Ranger's Classic Cherry Dye Ink. I covered the berries with glossy accents and added sequin. I used a piece of white fun foam to pop up the white piece. Assemble and adhere to an A2 size card.
Great cards ladies. I am always amazed how many ways there are to make a Christmas card and even though they could use any technique, both used Versamark with embossing powder. That always makes a card more festive.
