Christmas Wishes

And so it begins... All things Christmas!

This is by far my favourite time of the year! I love shopping for gifts, I love wrapping them and I truly love making Christmas cards and tags to go with the gifts! In the coming weeks I will hopefully fill this page with something for everyone!

Today's card is super easy and ideal for mass production.

I started off with the lovely Under the Tree DSP (135825) as inspiration and from this card I used the Cherry Cobbler and Kraft paper. For the card base I used Cherry Cobbler A4 Cardstock (121681).

Next I heat embossed the biggest star from the Many Merry Stars Photopolymer stamp set (138105, p8, Merry 7 Bright Extra Special Christmas Catalogue) in Gold Embossing powder (109129) onto Garden Green A4 Cardstock (108605). I also die cut the star using the Stars Framelits Dies (133723).

Next I die cut a smaller star from Champagne Glimmer Paper (127885) and scored and folded it as pictured.

With the beautiful Cherry Cobbler Pattern not much more was needed - I heat embossed my greeting with Gold embossing powder (I used a stamp from the retired Joy to the World stamp set) but any medium sized greeting will work perfectly! I especially love the "Christmas Wishes"greeting from the Ornamental Pine stamp set (Wood 135104, Clear 135107, p 27, Holiday Catalogue).

I used the beautiful (understatement of the year!)  Satin Ribbon in Gold (134547) for a bow. 

A truly festive card in no time!
