Tis the Season...to make Christmas Cards!!

Don't these colors just ooooze Christmas?
                          Using Kennedy Grace Creations November's Mood Board I made my card.

Taking my Neenah 110 lb paper cut at 4.25 by 5.5 inches, I put it through my Xyron Creative Station to put adhesive completely on one side of the thick cardstock. I started with Cosmic Shimmer Egyptian Gold Gilding Flakes, picking up some of the deeper golds, and red flakes to make it match the gorgeous mood board above.  As you can see in my picture, I put some of the silver flakes aside and added all reminding flakes back into the jar. Once the flakes were covering the entire piece, I began smoothing and buffing the front with a Swifter Sweeper Dry Sweeping cloth. I cut one sheet in half to make it easier to use. I buffed it all out being careful to not push down too hard but only used a buffing motion until I got the shiney piece you see now.


  I stamped the Kennedy Grace Creations Grace's Little Note bouquet onto the same Neenah cardstock. Copics I used were the deeper reds: R59, R39, and a touch of RV19, as well as YG97, YG95, YG93. Fussy cutting the flower out, I then used my Xyron to add the adhesive again to the back.

For the front sentiment, I liked using Paper Smooches Merry Christmas die.  I cut it in two colors of white, and a deep red. I then adhered both layers together and added both the flower bouquet and the sentiment to the front. I added Wink of Stella in Glitter Gloss to th Merry Christmas sentiment to add more sparkle! Viola! Simple and yet stunning to see in person!



I loved using the gilding to bring a festive feel to my holiday greeting card. Hope this inspires you to try some of the products I showcased today and thank you for visiting ua today!
Yours truly,

Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors in this pic! Here's what I've made for you today:


 I stamped the flower from the Just A Rose stamp set with Memento London Fog using second generation stamping (for no-line coloring) and colored with Copics YR68, Y38, Y35 and YR31 for orange and YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for green.

I inked the left edge of the top folding A2 card base with the DI Spiced Marmalade and adhered the black panel on it. I mounted the rose with foam tape and adhered the sentiment with Sc…
