Christmas Cards Part 5

A black card base.
Now add an image cut using Cricut's Inspired Hearts.
Place the image on brushed silver gift wrap.
Very simple, very elegant.

Christmas Cards Part 4

Green sponging around the edge of the card base.
The snowflake embossing folder layer was cut to
4 x 5.25 inches and the edges were sponged with green.
I used a Spellbinders ornament die in three different sizes.
They are raised over the card using the flat portions of
paper egg cartons to create the 3-d look.
The oval has been cut out of the center of the largest
ornament.  I used the ovals to cut the very narrow
dark green oval the frames the word.
The word has been embossed with fine line gold.

I love the design, but will not be making very many of them.
The design is very intricate and time consuming.
As I have orders for seven dozen Christmas cards
they are going to have to be a little easier to produce.

Christmas Cards Part 3

 The phrase is from Cricut's Beyond Birthdays cartridge.
Snowflakes are Spellbinders.
The bottom care is not black, but burgundy.
The snowflake layer and the colored layer under it are
raised using the flat portions of paper egg cartons.
