Is everyone ready for the holidays? I always think I have lots of time to get things done and then I find that the time has passed too quickly and I'm not prepared! I still need to work on Christmas cards. I know those of you who have waited will want to see something quick and easy, so here is one of a series of cards I have created using Creative Impressions embellishments:
Using red card stock, I die cut "Merry Christmas" from the Merry Christmas die by Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous. The Pine Bough is from Impression Obsesson. I die cut it three times from scrap green card stock.
After adhering the words to a white card, I edged the piece with Barn Door Distress Ink and adhered it to a Bo Bunny patterned piece from my museum of paper. (I call it that since I have so much! Time to use it!). Then I adhered the die cut pine boughs.
You will notice that I have added some beautiful Creative Impressions Metallic Christmas Light Bulb Paper Fasteners (90655) to my card design. I adhered some Evergreen/White Bakers Twine (80718) to the pine boughs to act as a"light strand". Then I poked some holes in different areas and added the beautiful brads. I really felt the addition of these brads made the entire piece "pop"! Love them! Here are some close-ups:
Can you see the metallic shine on these close-up photos?
Hope this card design gave you some ideas for some since last-minute Christmas cards!
