Celebration Tidings Dual Colour CAS Christmas Card

by Joanne James14. September 2020 18:09

Happy Monday everyone! A busy day for me today with a busy online class featuring the Poinsettia Petals bundle (cards to be shared another day!) which was lovely to see my ladies, virtually at least! I did make a couple of CAS cards to share with you today - here's the first one using Amy's great layout over at Freshly Made Sketches:


So many ways to go with this classic layout; I decided to try out the new Celebration Tidings bundle - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Inspired By ... - In addition to the sketch, the starting point for my card today was the lovely Old Olive/Pretty Peacock reversible ribbon in the annual catalogue. Not two colours I would ordinarily put together, I love the sheen of this ribbon and so decided to use this colour pairing with Whisper White for the basis of my card.

Celebration Tidings - The 'Celebration Tidings' stamp set has decorative elements for lots of seasonal occasions that span the autumn/winter months. I used the sprig of festive foliage in each corner of my card, stamped in Pretty Peacock and coloured with Old Olive Blends with a touch of clear Wink of Stella, along with a sprinkling of pearls for the berries.  

Celebration Labels - The Celebration Labels Dies are great for home decor frames, bag toppers and more, but on today's card I used them to create a layered centre with my greeting heat embossed in white and accented with a mistletoe sprig. I love the stitched detailing - it really adds a lovely detail. I like anything with stitching!!

And done!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your evening; I'll be back shortly with my second card. Until then, happy stampin'!

Very pretty. I like how you've used a not-particularly-Christmas set and made it into one. I like this colour combination too.
