Tidings of Christmas Most Wonderful Christmas Card. Touches of Ink blog hop. November 2021

 Good Evening Everyone,

I hope you are well. Today I'm taking part in the Touches of Ink Blog Hop.This month's theme is Winter/Christmas and we have to use a Suite or Bundle fro our Project. I have decided to create a lovely Christmas Card using the Tidings of Christmas Suite - which I absolutely LOVE!


Evening Evergreen card Stock.

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8".


Basic White Card Stock 

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 3" x 1 3/4"

Tidings of Christmas DSP

5pc - 3 3/4" x 1 1/4"

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Gold Metallic Specialty Paper


Soft  Succulent Card Stock



Take the Evening Evergreen Card stock and fold along the score line, then round all four corners with the detailed trio punch. Add the basic white panel to the inside,  with all corners rounded as well.

Round all the corners of the DSP add arrange the thinner strips across the width of the larger piece, making then slightly 'wonky' or offset.

Take a length of the Evening evergreen ribbon and run it across the centre of this piece, adhering to the back, then add soft succulents ribbon above and below.

Adhere this panel to the card front. 

Again, round the corners of the remaining piece of basic white and then stamp the sentiment in the centre in Evening Evergreen ink, then add some of the foliage images in Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Cherry Cobbler ink around the sides and the bottom.

Add this to the centre of the card front with dimensionals.

Using your Cut & Emboss machine and the Christmas Trimming Die cut two of the small detailed star in Gold Metallic Paper, One of the small solid stars in both Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.

Layer the detailed die cut on to the solid stars and then add to the card.
