Handmade Christmas Card Details

Have you been saving up those strips of cardstock and designer paper knowing someday you’d use them? This easy layout is a great way to put those scraps to good use. Concerned about how to cut the angles? Watch the video for a great tip!


This simple layer had a lot of ‘white space’ so I opted to add decorative strips of Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow cardstock. While the beautifully embossed holly and greeting are the focal point, I found the background was still too plain. That’s when the thought of splattering came to mind – with a twist!


I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue and a few drops of water and my Aqua Painter to splatter the Whisper White cardstock. I added gold embossing powder and heat set the droplets. I’ve got tips about this technique in today’s video that will make creating this carefree technique easy.


The beautiful Christmas Gleaming stamp set includes timeless ornament images and can be purchased as a Bundle with coordinating punches. *SPOILER ALERT* The Christmas Gleaming Bundle will be the focus of my card making kit for November. Details debut HERE on November 13.
