Card #29 – Christmas Card

Card 29 Supply LayoutI started by assembling all my supplies.

I know it may seem odd to have a Christmas card at the end of January, but there are two good reasons:  1.  I wanted to share the card I made for Christmas this past December and 2.  I didn’t feel well today and up to designing a card.  I’m hoping it’s just a 24 hour funk, and after a good nights rest I’ll be back to normal.

 

For this card I used white cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″) for my base, navy cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″) for the frame, grey pearlized cardstock for the oval frame and white paper for the background wording.

Card 29 4For the wording background, I printed the Christmas story from the 2nd chapter of Luke and trimmed it to fit behind the grey cardstock oval frame.

Silhouette die cut nativityUsing my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting machine, I die cut the Nativity silhouette out of the navy cardstock.  And using my Big Shot Die Cut Machine, I cut the oval frame out of the grey pearlized cardstock.

Card 29I used my adhesive to attach the background wording to the grey oval cardstock and then that whole piece to the navy cardstock frame.

013fc1fae8e75604b365215e2e06cf9920ea585095Because the Nativity die cut was such an intricate piece, I placed several dots of liquid adhesive on the back and then placed it on top of the oval.  Once the glue was dry, I attached the whole front panel to the white cardstock base.  Prior to this step, though, I stamped the “Merry Christmas” sentiment with navy ink on the inside of the card base.

I finished the card by placing a rhinestone on top of the “i” in “Believe” and painting the word “Believe” with my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.

Here is the finished card.

I don’t like it when my mom doesn’t feel good.
