Frostwood Christmas

This is the first card from the December Make and Take. I wanted something super simple and pretty so show that Christmas cards don’t have to be terribly time consuming to be gorgeous. Take a look:

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Bright Hopes
Cardstock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
DSP: Frostwood Lodge
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Versamark
Accessories: Iridescent Ice embossing powder, Heat Tool, Scallop Trim border punch, Cherry Cobbler Dotted Scallop ribbon

The card base is Whisper White card stock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2”. The swirls from Baroque Motifs were stamped onto the card front in Versamark ink. Iridescent Ice embossing powder was poured over the stamped image, the excess tapped off, and heated with the Heat Tool.

A piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock was cut at 1” x 4-1/4” and one long edge was punched with the Scallop Trim border punch. This was adhered behind the top of a 2” x 4-1/4” piece of Frostwood Lodge DSP. This was adhered onto the card front. A piece of Cherry Cobbler Dotted Scallop ribbon was wrapped around the card front and tied into a knot. The greeting from Bright Hopes was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink in the upper left hand corner of the card front.

This card was super quick and super easy. The swirls look so sparkly and wonderful in real life. The picture just does not show it well enough.

Thanks for stopping by!
