I have a friend who loves vintage type cards. With the help of the ModaScrap Xmas Vintage Collection design paper I created this card. The design paper has a collection of vintage Christmas ornaments and goes perfect with this beautiful A Way With Words Christmas ornament.
This is a 6-inch square card. The front is covered with the ModaScrap Xmas Vintage Collection Design paper.
Use the Dotted Scallop die set to die cut two different size squares using True Green and Silver Gray Soft Finish Cardstock. Attach the squares to the front of the card.
Use the A Way With Words Love, Joy, Peace Christmas Ornament, die set for the ornament. Use a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock covered with a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to die cut the ornament. Peel off the adhesive covering and sprinkle Light Gold Silk Microfine Glitter on both the die cut circle and the flourish. Polish well with your fingers to bring out the sparkle. Attach the ornament in the center of the green die cut square.
Use the same die set and die cut the 'Joy' using a piece of white card stock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the top. Sprinkle on Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Use a piece of Fun Foam and die cut the sentiment again - this will give the sentiment dimension. Glue the glittered sentiment to the top of the Fun Foam then attach to the center of the ornament.
Use the Garden Notes Poinsettia die set and create a red poinsettia. For this flower, I combined the petals of the large Poinsettia with the petals from the small Poinsettia. Shape the poinsettia using the Flower Tool Kit and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. Add Yellow and Green Prills to the center.
Use the Beautiful Baubles die set and die cut two pine branches. Use the fine pointed scissors to cut some of the pine needles in half; this will give them some fullness. Sponge a little white pigment ink on the branches and use a brown maker to color the center (branch) of the pine bough. Attach the boughs to the upper left corner, then attach the poinsettia on the corner.
For a final touch, use the Gold Corners, Peel Off Stickers, on the other three corners.
This card can be mailed in one of the clear acrylic boxes which is linked below.
