Christmas Classics, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a sweet and simple Christmas card to share with you. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Snowflake Sky" embossing folder. I took my Blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink and scrubbed on some ink to give the background a bit of color to the texture. Then I glued it to the card base.

Next I die cut a Basic White piece with the rectangle and holly leaves on it from the "Christmas Classics" bundle. I also cut a Garden Green piece too using that same die.

A scrap piece of Basic White was used for the loopy leaves. I had taken my Blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink and scrubbed on some color. I wanted the Balmy Blue color in the card but not as dark as the card stock is. So using the Blending Brush added the blue but softly.

The letters were cut using my Cricut because I did not buy the "Joy of Noel" set. I just couldn't afford it all. I really wanted to make this card and that's why I used my Cricut to cut the letters. I had gotten some blue sparkle vinyl from The Dollar Tree and set it up on my machine. The font I used was GaralonB. You can get almost any font you want from  A fun great place to find fun fonts!! After making them I set then in place on the Basic White strip.  also on that strip I had colored the berries in using my dark Real Red Blends Pen.

I took the Garden Green strip and cut it in half the long way. I glued each half to the back of the Basic White piece, offsetting it a bit so it could be seen on the sides.

To assemble the card I added Dimensionals to the back of the Noel piece. I set it in place. 

I added a little bit of glue to the ends of the loopy leaves piece and tucked them under the Noel piece. And that was it.

This was a fun card to make and I think it probably would have been easier had I bought the "Noel of Joy" set but like I said, I just couldn't afford all the stuff I wanted.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Christmas card,
