For this card, I made a black card base. I then embossed a piece of dark red Core'dinations cardstock with the Jolly Christmas Embossing Folder. I used the Sanding Block to sand the raised areas. The pale paper core shows through. I chose a trendy hexagon print paper to add some extra interest to the card, and I created an icicle border with a punch.
I added a very trendy chalkboard sentiment to the front of the card and finished it all off with a little "bell and bow" action. Clean and simple cards are all the rage these days. I confess that this is a style that I am not very good at, but I think this next card is my own version of CAS.
I embossed some textured glossy paper with the Peaceful Ornaments Embossing Folder. I trimmed off the bottom portion of the embossed image and added Self-Adhesive Gemstones to each of the embossed ornaments.
I added a sentiment, which is one of my very own stamp designs I cut out the sentiment with the Victorian Rectangle Nesting Dies. I rubbed the edges of the rectangle with green ink. I hope you are inspired to create some quick and easy and trendy Christmas cards!
