Yes – I did it! A Christmas card… (sigh) But with all the new goodies in the Holiday Mini Catalog, I just couldn’t help myself! 🙂
This one uses several new goodies from the Holiday Mini. First of all, the little window that says “Merry Christmas” uses our new Shaker Frames (item 124155, $4.95). These are great! You get 36 frames (they come nested) that will work with all sizes of our circle punches! I uses the 1″ circle punch for the window and the 1 1/4″ circle for the Crumb Cake layer. They have handy adhesive, so you don’t get any “spills”.
Inside the window are our new Mica Flakes (item 124115, $3.50). These come in a huge jar. They are chunky and very sparkly! The mica mimics the look of snow…great for all those winter scenes. And for the price, an outstanding value!
The third feature from the mini catalog is the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper (item 124002, $10.95). This paper pack has a wonderful, down-home feel. It reminds me of sitting by the fire, sipping hot chocolate with my family. Just warm and rustic.
The base of this card is Cherry Cobbler. The frame is done with Garden Green. For the Crumb Cake layer, I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder (item 120175, $7.95). Then, I used a sponge with some Whisper White craft ink to lightly highlight the texture. I think it works well with the rustic feel of this card. Crumb Cake seam binding (item 122332, $6.95) and a few vintage brads finish up the look!
