Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card.
To create my Merry Christmas Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Paper Flowers Collection as well as Joset Designs and stamps from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.
Step One. Choose two pieces of Christmas patterned paper. Die cut a 4″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of each rectangle.
Step Two. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Distress the edges of the rectangle.
Step Three. From a third piece of Christmas patterned paper, die cut a 2 1/4″ Stitched Circle from the Pizza Box Die. Distress the edges of the circle.
Step Four. From the Winter Words Stamp Set, you’ll need the Merry and Christmas words. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the words and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the two words into two strips.
Step Five. From the Winter Greens die, die cut the holly twice out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of each holly piece. Shape the leaves as desired.
Step Six. From the Winter Greens die, die cut the berry branch twice out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the entire surface of each berry branch.
Step Seven. From the Florals 11 die, you’ll need the large, medium, small and ruffled centres. Die cut the large flower once, the medium flower three times, the small flower three times and the centres twice out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Festive Berries Distress Ink over the entire surface of each flower. From the centres, you’ll need two small and one medium centre. Adhere the flowers together. Two of the flowers will have a medium and small flower as well as a small centre adhered together. The remaining flowers and centre will be adhered together. Shape the flowers as desired.
Step Eight. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Adhere the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.
Step Nine. Foam square the circle 3/8″ from the left and 1 1/4″ from the top of the 3 1/2″ rectangle.
Step Ten. Adhere the holly branch and berry branch to the bottom right side of the circle. Adhere the other holly branch and berry branch to the left of the perviously adhered holly branch and berry branch as desired.
Step Eleven. Use foam squares to adhere the large flower to the bottom middle of the circle. Foam square the remaining flowers to the right and left of the large flower.
Step Twelve. Adhere the Merry Christmas words to the circle as desired.
Step Thirteen. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
