If you still want to send out handmade Christmas cards, today's card is a perfect design to use. I chose the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set, which has the prettiest font for the sentiments. The color scheme is black & white (yes!), with a hint of gold.
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 11" Whisper White Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
First Layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Basic Black Cardstock
Second Layer: 1 1/2" x 5 1/4" Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper
Third Layer: One-half of a gold Foil Doily
Fourth Layer: Scallop Layering Square Framelit from Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp sentiment in Black Memento Ink.
Three Pearl Jewels finish off this simple Christmas card.
Don't be discouraged if you don't have all the supplies to make this card. Copy the design layout, which is why I include directions. Here are some alternative supplies to use if you don't have the:
- Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper--use other patterned paper or colored cardstock that you embossed in an embossing folder.
- Layering Squares Framelits--use a 3" x 3" square of cardstock.
- Foil Doilies--use Delicate White Doilies or a large half-circle of colored cardstock.
- Pearl Jewels--use Rhinestone Jewels or use punches from a 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch and colored cardstock.
