Hey, everybody! A very Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a marvelous weekend and you were able to do something fun! We had our first snow nearly a week ago and I loved every minute of it! Snow is just so beautiful when it’s falling! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! It’s been a minute (2015, lol!) since I created a teepee card (look HERE if you’re interested) so I thought it was time to revisit that fun fold! I used the awesome Vine Circle Chipboard Embellishments to create this Christmas card in non-traditional colors of pink and green! I’m always in Christmas mode and I’m really happy with how this card turned out!
I created the card base from white cardstock, cut layering panels from green cardstock as well as coordinating pink and green patterned paper panels which I adhered to the card base, and then added a round magnet closure. I used both of the Vine Circle Chipboard Embellishments and created Christmas wreaths. I mixed white chalk paint with several drops of green India ink and painted the large one, and mixed white chalk paint with several drops of magenta India ink and painted the small one. Once dry, I dabbed glue on them with a sponge and sprinkled clear glitter on them. I embellished the large green wreath with iridescent gemstones and the small pink wreath with white flat-back pearls for interest and different textures.
I adhered the wreaths to the front of the card and added a stamped and silver embossed sentiment cut with a fishtail die. The final step was adding a few more pearls at the bottom.
Here are shots of the other two sides. The cool part is that this card folds flat for mailing! Be sure to see my tutorial on the Clear Scraps blog if you’re interested in seeing how it was made!
