Countdown to Christmas Day 22


Still not quite done with the Christmas cards! This one is for Karl's Mam & Dad and I'm pleased with the way it's turned out.

I started out by printing the 'Mam & Dad' sentiment onto some white 160 gsm paper and trimmed it to size. I then stamped the snowflakes from Background Builders: Christmas in silver and set it aside to dry. 

I then die cut a medium Designer Die Snowflake & added some Cosmic Shimmer silver glitter. The 'Merry Christmas' label is from Label Love: Thank you stamped in silver & embossed with star dust EP and I used a 1 3/8" circle punch to punch out just the middle circle of the label. As this is a hand delivered card, I added LOTS of dimension to the layers using foam adhesive! 

It's easy to personalise a card using your computer and a nice font, there are tons of free fonts for personal use available on the internet. A few key points to help you with this that I used are firstly design a card layout where you can add the sentiment as a small panel or die cut. This is useful for a couple of reasons, firstly if your printer doesn't like heavy card (like mine) you can use a lighter weight card stock or like I have 160 gsm paper. Secondly, if you make a mistake or it doesn't turn out the way you imagined you haven't wasted good card! 

That's all from me today, short & sweet as I've a dinner to cook! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share, until then thank you for stopping by today :)
