merry & white

Hello crafty friends. I’ve got a simple Christmas card to share today using Stampin’ Up!’s ‘merriest frames’ & co-ordinating embossing folder. It was quite quick to make (once I’d figured the design out!) I’ve picked up the ‘winter whites’ theme from Less is More and paired it with Just Us Girls‘ word challenge of ‘merry’.

I started by die cutting the floral frame from SU’s ‘merriest frames’ and used the square label in the set to also cut the centre out. I then brayered WOW clear ink across the whole piece and heat embossed it with ‘clear sparkle’ powder. Once dry, I ran it through the ‘merriest frames’ embossing folder to give it dimension.

I then stamped the sentiment from Julie Hickey’s ‘classic Christmas sentiments’ set into the centre of an A6 card blank, and heat embossed it with metallic silver powder.

All I then needed to do was attach the frame onto the card front. I used glue for this, leaving some of the leaves free to keep the contrast with the card front.

Very pleased with how this turned out and it will be perfect for batchmaking (I’ve made a start already!) My only hope is that it’s not too busy a design for Less is More’s ‘clean and simple’ theme.
