I’ve had something like this card in mind for some time. I had even done the embossing a few weeks ago but just hadn’t felt it was ready to use it in a card.
This card is SUPER easy peasy with great results, the only downside would be the cost of the velvet and the foil card stock.
This card measures: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
-emboss green velvet with Christmas Tree Cuttlebug folder
-mount on Gold foil card stock
-mount gold foil card stock with velvet onto a card base
Of course you can bling it up by adding rhinestones or pearls but I love the richness of the velvet against the gold foil that the simplicity works so well.
A resource saving trick? Diecut or punch something out of the middle of the gold foil card stock before adhering the velvet (just make sure the velvet will cover it), use the diecut piece in something else and the recipient won’t even know that there’s something missing!
Sooooo, have you started making any Christmas cards yet??? If so, you may want to consider entering them into the Christmas card challenge over at the Christmas Card Challenges blog.
