merry Christmas

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! August has almost bit the dust and we’ll soon be into September. Just shaking my head at how fast the time is flying! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a pretty Christmas card in non-traditional colors featuring the gorgeous Tutti Designs Ornament Circle! I love a pink Christmas card and I really love these new Sparkling Sheets which are so shimmery and iridescent!

I cut the Tutti Designs Ornament Circle from the pink sparkling sheet and set it aside. I cut a square top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel just a tad smaller from CutCardStock Basis Magenta cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in white ink, scored diagonal lines every half-inch in both directions on the layering panel, and adhered the panel to the card base. I adhered the die cut with spray adhesive, and added tiny iridescent gemstones inside the circular part of the die cut and several larger ones in the upper right and lower left corners to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and embellished it with a strip cut from the pink sparkling sheet and a narrow strip of the CutCardStock Basis Magenta cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in pink ink and layered the panel on the magenta cardstock.

And one more peek… this die is amazing and I see more Christmas cards made with it in my future! LOVE how this turned out!
