Hi everyone! Wowzers, can you believe we’re finishing out October?! Unbelieveable! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a festive Christmas card in traditional red and green featuring some fun washi tape, brads and bling!
I created a side-folding A2 card base and a slightly smaller panel from textured red cardstock. I cut a smaller panel that I covered with Christmas Pattern Washi Tape. I covered a scrap piece of white cardstock with green foiled paper and then die cut letters spelling M-E-R-R-Y which I added to the panel.
I affixed a Santa Hat Brad at an angle on the M and two Stocking Brads at the end just past the Y. I stamped ‘Christmas’ in green ink on a scrap piece of white cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it beneath the main part of the sentiment. The finishing touch was the addition of a few green 8 mm Cut Jewels.
I embellished the inside panel with a piece of the Christmas Pattern Washi Tape and a thin strip of the textured red cardstock, stamped the sentiment in green ink and layered it on more of the textured red cardstock.
And one more look… super happy with this design! Loving the traditional Christmas colors!
