Video Tutorial 



Card One

My two cards today are super traditional. I incorporated pattern papers on both of them to help accent my assorted Christmas leaves. For card one, I started by die cutting my berry sprig from dark green card stock. Instead of cutting all of my berries from red card stock, I decided to glue pink and red pearls on to the berry areas. To add dimension behind my sprig, I added two layers of heavy weight white die cuts behind my green one. 

The sentiment also has two layers of heavy weight card stock behind. The sentiment was gold heat embossed on the same dark green card stock. This sentiment is from the "Cardinal Blessings" 6x6 stamp set. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.

After adding my sprig to the plaid patterned background, I realized it wasn't standing out enough, even with the added dimension. To help my berry sprig pop more, I die cut a cream oval to back behind it. To tie in some more cream, I decided to cover my card base with the same cream card stock. 

Finally, I accented the card with a few more pink and red pearls. 


Card Two

I'm slowly coming on board the mini slimline train with this beautiful card design.

I started by hot foiling my sentiment in gold on cream card stock. This sentiment is one of three that's included in the "Merry Christmas Hot Foil Sentiments". I love that this set also includes coordinating dies so theres no need to foil perfectly straight! 

To the bottom left of the sentiment, I added a cluster of Christmas greenery, which I die cut from kraft and gold mirror card stock. In the center of my cluster, I added a cardinal from the "Cardinal Blessings" 6x6 stamp set. I loved using the pearls as berries on my first card, so I decided to do that again on card two.

To balance the design, I decided to add a smaller cluster of leaves to the top right of the sentiment.

    I just love that large sentiment Sabrina. I might have to splash out and buy the hot foil system just so I can have the sentiment. I also love that you have coordinating dies for the sentiments on both cards. The tip you gave on using cream cardstock with warm colors is one I will remember. I always reach for white, but, you are absolutely correct that the cream works so well with the traditional colors. The cards are gorgeous.

    These are such handsome renditions with the Christmas leaves and the cardinals. They remind me of vintage cards, but with a contemporary flair. Perfect for a card from a whole family.
