Here are the cards we made in my Christmas in July classes this past Saturday. I will feature two of these cards in detail this week, and the other two will be featured next week. This first card is the elegant Seasonal Wreath card.
I embossed the layer with the Seasonal Wreath embossing folder and colored the wreath with the clear Wink of Stella. I stamped the deer from the Nature Sings Stamp Set in soft suede classic ink and colored them with the watercolor pencil in early expresso very lightly and blended the color with my blender pen.
I colored under the feet of the deer with the above Quickie Glue pen and then added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to make it look like snow. The glue pen was easy to work around the feet and not get the glue on the wreath. You can find these glue pens on Amazon, Michaels and I’m sure any craft store and possibly Staples will have them.
I used red glitter paper (retired) for the bow and cut it out from the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. You can also use the red foil, gold or silver glitter papers from Stampin’ Up! for the bow and any all will look beautiful.
I popped up the layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added 5 red rhinestone basic jewels and the front of the card is done.
The sentiment on the inside was stamped in Real Red Classic Ink and is from the Nature Sings and the Star of Light Stamp Sets. I only stamped one of the deers from the stamp for the inside layer.
I put a piece of scotch tape on the deer I didn’t want on the card and inked it up it with Soft Suede Classic Ink, removed the tape and stamped the deer in the corner of the card. I used the glue pen and added the dazzling diamonds glitter for the snow.
I really wish you could see how elegant this card is in person. The picture doesn’t project the glitter on the wreath from the Clear Wink of Stella that well. Sooo, I guess you’ll just have to make it to see the real beauty and elegance of this card in person. Happy Crafting!
