Holiday Countdown Series, Day 5


Good morning friends!  Christmas season is upon us and I've got a project that will add some quick and easy cards to your Christmas card stash. 

 

Here's a snapshot of the products I used today:

Here's what I did:
I started by cutting the Hero Arts Layered Holly leaves out of 65# Limeade Pop Tones cardstock. This is the perfect weight for die cutting and layering as it doesn't add too much bulk so your Christmas cards can be easily mailed, without the cost of extra postage.  I stamped each of the images using coordinating inks.

I used a stitched edge die to cut a piece of 80# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and a piece of 65# Wild Cherry Pop Tones and adhered the two using Score-Tape.

I found this fabulous basket weave design paper from Authentique "Cheerful" and it made me think of a pretty lined basket filled with fresh holly.

I assembled the cards using Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue and added some Glossy Accents and True Red Silk Microfine Glitter to the berries for added texture and interest.

The sentiments are from the Hero Arts Layered Holly Leaves set.

Limeade and Wild Cherry is such a refreshing color combination for Christmas.  Why don't you give it a try!  You'll find all of the Red, Green and White cardstocks on sale all month long at CutCardStock.

Be sure to visit the Cut Card Stock Blog each day for lots of holiday inspiration!
