Christmas Wishes

soooo, I’m still working on my Christmas cards for this year (talking a little longer but they are pretty crazy this year)so I grabbed another card form my box. I made this one a couple of years ago. It’s pretty elegant in perso, the photo doesn’t do it justice, and one of my easier cards so it would be easy to C.A.S.E. it’s hard t see in the photo but the embossed section has glitter in it so it has a little extra pizzazz.

All the supplies used for this card are from Stampin Up.

the card base is actually cut from the Whisper White card stock and it was cut to 10 3/4″ x 4 3/16″ scored in half to make a side folding card.

Coastal Cabana 4 1/16″x 5 1/4″ and is used for the card front.

Bermuda Bay cut to 5 1/2″x 4 1/4″ and is used for the backing.

to decorate the card front I stamped the pine boughs on the bottom left and the top right corners using Coastal Cabana ink on the Coastal Cabana cardstock for a tone on tone look. I stamped “Christmas Wishes” on the top left corner the same way. Next I stamped another pine bow on the left, with a pine cone using White Craft ink, I sprinkled clear embossing powder mixed with a little bit of silver glitter on to the white ink and heat embossed.

To make the border on the side I cut a stip of Shiny Silver cardstock to 1/4″ x 4 1/16″ and I adhered it to the right side of the card. I wrapped a thin strip of Bermuda Bay ribbon over the silver cardstock and adhered it to the back. I adhered the card front to the white cardbase.

I stamped a a greeting on the inside than attached the the card base to the Bermuda Bay card back
