I’m going for super Clean and Simple for today’s cards. Sometimes we have so many holiday cards to make it’s a good idea. Both of these cards are super easy with nothing but die cutting and 1 Hot Foiled Sentiment. I used up left over pieces from last week’s card extravaganza (5 cards in one day), yep, I cut that many extra pieces, haha, and I still have more. Here are the brief instructions for making them.
Merry Christmas Clean and Simple Cards – Card #1:
Then, cut a piece of mirror gold cardstock 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and attach it to a top folding A2 sized white card base.
Next, use foam squares (man I love foam squares), to attach the sentiment to the center of the card, on a slight angle.
NOTE – this also looks pretty in any color cardstock.
Merry Christmas Clean and Simple Cards – Card #2
Start by cutting a card front 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ from green card stock. (I think this is Mint Macaron from Stampin Up card stock). Attach it to a top folding A2 sized white card base.
Next, use the Winter Foliage Die set and cut out enough foliage to cover the card front. Glue it all down with the fine tip on the Bearly Art Glue.
Finally, attach it with foam squares to add a little depth.
