Christmas Season Corner Detail Card

by Joanne James21. August 2021 20:06

A quick card from me this evening that was inspired by Jen Mitchell's great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and the festive inspiration at Inspired By:


I thought those corners would be great for some layered foliage to frame a festive sentiment - take a look at what I came up with:


Lots of foliage, holly, pine cones and berries stamped and cut using the 'Christmas Season' stamp set and dies, and layered to frame a sentiment from the 'Merriest Moments' stamp set:


I wanted to add in a couple of candy canes too, but do you think I could find my retired candy cane dies? Nope, not anywhere! Too many craft supplies and not enough office space, that's my issue!!

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 and I'll be back tomorrow with another project for our new challenge over at The Paper Players. Until then, happy stampin'!

I do love a Christmas card that has got lots of greenery.  I can never seem to get these types of layers right but you've done a bang up job!  I love the thick red border and the script sentiment in the center.  What a beauty this is!  Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

You've created such a beautiful arrangement of the Christmas greenery - I LOVE it in each corner surrounding the classic sentiment. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Opulent Christmas clusters and yet still a gloriously CAS design. Wonderful.
