Clean and simple festive cards

 I have a couple of clean and simple festive cards using a classic Christmas colour combo of red and white. The white really makes this beautiful red cardstock from Gina K designs really pop and of course, gives a nod to Father Christmas!

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR Bumblberry Papercrafts - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Creating the backgrounds

To start off, adhere the MFT Pine Tree Forest stencil down over a piece of Cherry Red Gina K cardstock. Using a spatula, add a small amount of Altenew embossing paste to your glass mat and mix in a few drops of PinkFresh Studios Candy Apple watercolour liquid.

Assembling the cards

Next, work on the sentiments by die cutting the word ‘Ho’ 9 times from white cardstock using the Altenew Fine Alphabet die set. Adhere the letters together with Gina K connect glue until you have 3 layered ‘Ho, Ho, Ho’. In addition, stamp and emboss onto a piece of vellum ‘Season’s Greetings’ from the Altenew Happy Holiday stamp set. 

Once the panels are dry, foam mount one panel onto a white card base. With the second panel, die-cut a stitched circle and foam mount onto a white panel. In addition, foam mount this onto a red card base. 

Next, adhere the sentiments onto each card. Try to hide the adhesive behind the embossing and also add a few sequins on top to hide the glue. 
 
Add a selection of silver sequins around the sentiment and the cards to finish them off.
