My first card features the beautiful Rejoice Nativity Etched Dies. These dies make it so easy to create elegant Christmas cards! I cut the frame die from gold foil paper, white cardstock, and two shades of brown. I trimmed “rejoice” from the white frame and the manger from the dark brown one and layered them onto the gold frame.
I cut the sky background from navy cardstock and layered it onto a white oval. I glued the sand piece to the sky and attached the layered frame on top. I cut the figures from black cardstock and gold foil paper and adhered them to the oval.
The Christmas Traditions Paper Pad has lots of lovely designs, and I chose a foiled one for this card. After trimming down the paper, I matted it with black cardstock and adhered it to a white card. I heat-embossed a sentiment from the Three Kings stamp set and glued it to the bottom of my card. I attached my oval nativity with foam squares and embellished with a few black gems.
For my second card, I paired the Vintage Holidays stamp with the Through the Woods Etched Dies. I started by diecutting elements from the Through the Woods Dies and layering them together. Before gluing the trees, I drew on snow with a white gel pen.
I love vintage holiday images, and the Vintage Holidays stamp does not disappoint. I colored the image with Copics, added highlights with a white gel pen, and fussy-cut the image. I attached it to my diecut scene with foam squares.
I chose a red paper from the Christmas Traditions Paper Pad, trimmed it to 4″ x 5 1/4″, and adhered it to a white card. I heat-embossed a sentiment from Vintage Holidays, cut it into a banner, and popped up the sentiment and the circle with foam. I added a scattering of gold enamel dots to finish the card.
My final card combines several of the new glimmer plates from the Christmas Traditions Collection. I first foiled the gorgeous Holiday Florals Background Glimmer Plate onto green cardstock with Green Glimmer Foil. I rotated the plate and foiled the panel a second time. I trimmed the panel to slightly smaller than A2 size and adhered it to a white card.
With Polished Brass Glimmer Foil, I foiled a sentiment from the Essential Christmas Greetings Glimmer Plate onto white cardstock. I diecut the sentiment with the Essential Labels Dies and attached it to my card with dimensional adhesive.
I foiled the poinsettia and evergreen sprigs from the Holiday Florals Glimmer Plate with Polished Brass Glimmer Foil. After diecutting them with the accompanying dies, I attached them to my card with foam squares. I finished with a trio of gold enamel dots on the poinsettia’s center.
