Hey everybody! A very Happy Saturday to you – another week has come and gone! My sister’s 70th birthday is in two days, and for years now, I’ve said that once her birthday comes and goes, Christmas will be here in no time! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock that I paired with our Basis Red and Basis Green cardstock along with our Gold Glitter cardstock. What a gorgeous traditional Christmas color combo in a mini slimline size which is one of my favorites!
I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, along with layering panels from Basis Red and Baronial Ivory cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set, and embellishing strips from Gold Glitter and Basis Green cardstock. I cut the poinsettia layers from Basis Red, Basis Green and Gold Glitter cardstock. I assembled the panels and adhered them to the card base, and then adhered the poinsettias. I created a foiled sentiment strip with a Baronial Ivory cardstock scrap and my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Spellbinders Glimmer Gold Foil, and Spellbinders Glimmer Holiday Sentiments Series 2 Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I flagged the ends with an EK Success 3/4″ square punch and adhered it to the card front with a Darice double-sided adhesive foam strip. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet red gemstones.
I cut the inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory and Basis Red cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I embellished the ivory panel with strips cut from Gold Glitter and Basis Green cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set in Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red ink, and adhered the panel to the red cardstock layer.
And one more peek… I really love a Christmas card in traditional red and green… as much as I love Christmas cards in non-traditional colors! And I have to say that this die set is one of my favorites!
