Hello Lovelies! It’s LauraJane:) Because I always seem to need “just one more card” after posting my Christmas/Holiday cards to Friends and Family, I like to keep several extra on hand. Today I’m sharing a few QUICK, last minute cards using background stamps as a starting point. And wanted to show how you can get different looks by mixing up simple Embossed sentiments and Large image embellishments.
Have a Look!
Christmas Sweater Background Cling is a cozy way to begin. I inked up two card fronts in shades of Pink Couture inks. Then on one, I heat embossed Brushed Merry with Platinum EP. Stamped the remainder of the sentiment in BRIGHT Cosmo Pink. Finished with Nuvo Drops as a simple embellishment.
For this second Christmas Sweater Background above, I Heat embossed the Holiday Love Poinsettia with Platinum EP. Sponged some of the same couture color onto the bloom and cut it out with the Holiday Love Poinsettia Coordinating Die. Popped it up onto a panel trimmed with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. Added a sentiment banner and stapled a quick “bow nest” of Metallic thread for embellishment.
The new Vintage Christmas Block makes a dynamic card front with very little time and effort.It looks amazing in Rose Gold Embossing Powder!
Just one French knot as centers on several tiny blooms and a Metallic thread Bow, matted on a white cardbase and you have an elegant Christmas card:))
I also often need anniversary cards right in the middle of the holiday season.
…so for the second Vintage Christmas Block I heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias in Rose Gold Embossing Powder. Used the Coordinating Die, then placed it onto Foil paper and fussy cut just a bit larger all around the edges. Heat embossed the sentiment with Black EP and popped it onto the Vintage Christmas block cardfront covering the Merry CHristmas…I think this works very well and could be used with a Birthday sentiment too.
There you go! Hope you enjoyed seeing some quick last minute cards:)) Happy Creating!
