Bumbleberry Papercrafts: Modern framed sentiment Christmas card

Hello, good to see you over on the blog. So, Christmas isn’t far away and if like me you still have cards to make, then they need to be stunning but easy at the same time. The Altenew Starry Night stamp set is perfect for this, and combined with a die you can create modern framed sentiment Christmas cards in no time! The card design is easy to change up with different colour schemes and your choice of embellishes can vary too.

modern framed sentiment Christmas card Process overview

To start off, stamp the star corner banner from the Altenew Starry night stamp set onto a white card panel in versamark ink. Rotate the card 180 degrees and repeat so all 4 corners are stamped. 

Cover this in Gold embossing powder and heat set. Die cut the fine frames rectangles die from Altenew in old mirror card and adhere to the front of the panel. Add a sentiment from the stamp set to the front of the panel within the frame rectangles. Lastly, add a few colour corresponding sequins to the front of the car sing multi medium matte adhesive.

To simplify this card even further, making them even quicker to make, stamp the corner banner of stars and circles in dye ink, skipping the heat embossing altogether. I love using blue and white together and think this made for a lovely fresh and elegant card fitting for the sentiment.
