Hi everyone....Laurie here sharing my handmade card ideas with another project using the fabulous Christmas Treasures collection from BoBunny.
The collection includes a fun stamp set with a cute little stocking that was crying to be hung......
I stamped the image twice with Black Soot Distress Ink and colored it with Faber-Castell pencils. I added one of the banners from the Noteworthy collection and used the small candy dots in the corners. I added the stamped mat over the ribbon with pop dots to add some dimension. This collection is great for quick easy Christmas cards that have a nostalgic theme.
This is a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card. I matted the plaid paper for the first layer and wrapped the ribbon across the middle of the matted piece. I stamped the stockings onto a piece of white cut at 3 3/8" x 4" and then matted it onto a piece of red cardstock. I like to cut my cardstock 3/16" smaller than the piece it is being layered onto. Most people either cut 1/8" or 1/4" smaller but I like the look that falls between the two.
I hope my card inspires you with handmade card ideas of your own to create a fun easy Christmas card today. It is snowing here in Michigan so it is easy to get in the mood!
The products I used for this card are:
