A Way With Words Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Peel-Off Stickers Soft Finish Cardstock

Rudolph’s Christmas

October 26, 2019

Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am wondering if you are you as excited as I am at how easy the new 2019 Christmas Release from Suzanne Cannon is going to make holiday card making this year. No seriously…it is going to make crafting so much easier this holiday season.

Today I am playing with the brand new A Way With Words Flourished Deer die and the new Merry Christmas 3 die to create this simple, yet fun holiday card.

Step One: Trim a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and fold and score to create a 6×6 card frame.

Step Two: Using the A Way With Words Flourished Frames stencil, blend some ink onto the card frame to stencil in a frame. I used Candied Apple Distress Oxide.

Step Three: Using some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the new Flourished Deer die set. Color the image using your alcohol markers. I used my copics in E31, E33, and E37 for the deer’s body, R46 and R89 for his collar and nose, and Y23, Y26, and Y28 for his bell. I also used some N2 and N4 for the flourished areas.

Step Four: Using some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the nose, collar and bell onto the deer die cut. Adhere the die to the center of the card frame.

Step Five: Die cut the A Way With Words Merry Christmas 3 die from some Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the Merry Christmas onto the card frame. I let them be off center for a fun twist.

Step Six: To add a little extra glam to the card I added a strip of silver peel off sticker from the Corners and Borders Straight peel off sticker sheet.

I hope you are as excited as I am about this new Christmas Release. Make sure you pop over and check out the whole new line.
