Quick and Easy Christmas Card


I gold heat-embossed this pretty SU! image from the "Christmas Blessings" set on red cardstock, then cut it with a Lil Inkers stitched rectangle die. I added a vanilla panel along with a pastel green card base (both also cut with Lil Inker stitched rectangles) and finally heat-embossed the gold sentiment from Northwoods.

I'm sharing this with the Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge CHNC #318 which is anything goes as long as it's Christmas with an option of "no sentiment." I skipped the option and added a matching gold sentiment.

Have a happy Monday and thanks for stopping by!

The heat embossing flower looks lovely Carol, I need to do more embossing but I get so messy especially using frantage.xx

That image is absolutely gorgeous Carol!! I just love the delicate style especially with the gold embossing and stitched edging! Love your Christmas inspiration too my friend! :) HUGS

I love the simplicity of that beauty, Caro. The stitched panels really do add so much to them. I need to get me some of those! By the time I order them they'll be out of style. LOL
The lighter shade of green is very nice backing up the white and Xmas red. Have a great day.

This is very elegant looking, Carol!

Thanks for the tip about the Glossy accents. I think I will try it on that image today It is useless th way it i as the envelope would be full of glitter and the image would be half visible! lol

The golden lines of your lovely & delicate design, remind me of elegant embroidery on Christmas linens. This is so CAS & yet so extremely beautiful with the colors in the stitched matting layers. TFS
