2 Cards - Christmas & a Sneak Peek

Today I will be showing you two different cards.


I wanted to make something like a mini nativity for my Mom's bedroom. She's not well and if she can't sit in the den, she's in bed. I wanted her to have a little Christmas in her room that can sit on her night stand and view often. This is what I came up with.

It is like a card, measuring 5 1/2"w x 4 1/4"h with a bi-fold front.

The sentiment banner has a magnet between two banner pieces exactly the same size. This will keep it neatly closed in an envelope while being stored.  When it stands open, it creates a little nativity scene.

When you open it up like a card, you see the inside panels. (next photo) The gold embossed borders are created using the "Bordering Blooms" stamp set.

Hear is a closeup of the inside image. You can see that I used "Gorgeous Grunge" to create the gold embossed stars, and added a Gold Glimmer Paper star punched out with the Itty Bitty Star Punch.

 Next is a zoomed in close up of the front of the card (closed).

Hope you like it. Next is everything I used to created this card, followed by the SNEAK PEEK CARD.

I made a few cards using the new and up-coming "Grateful Bunch Bundle". This first one, I created a background using the dotted line leaf stamp and with my Aqua Painters I went over the lines and the water picked up a little of the ink as I went along. You can probably see that better in the next close up photo.

The tag you see, is a little something that you can rite an extra special message on the back, or attach a gift card to.

See more detail in this next photo. I love to divide up the stamping of a single stamp, like with this sentiment. I stamped the top part of the sentiment on one piece, and the second line on another.

Not only did I used the Aqua Painter to trace the dotted leaf lines, but I also used it to paint in the stamped flower. I used Archival Basic Gray to stamp the bloom. I didn't want it to be real dark as it would have been with the black.

Next you can see the side view of the card.     

And a little something on the inside...

Wait till you see tomorrow's card! I used the new and up-coming Blossom Bunch Punch". Here is what I used to make this card. The "Grateful Bunch Bundle" will not be in the list as it is not posted yet.
