Hey card making friends and welcome back. I have a NEW Card Making Video – Easy Classic Foliage Wreath Card to share with you today. Just trying to squeeze in a few more easy Christmas Cards before they all have to go out in the mail. Today’s card is super easy, just a bit of die cutting, some heat embossing and of course SPLATTER.
PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. See below for my full disclosure.
Today’s card is a bit mixed media, a style I really like but don’t often get into for some reason, hopefully a bit more in the coming year as my design team commitments near and end and I get more time to spend on just creating instead of deadlines, LOL. Deadlines are not always conducive to creativity, LOL
Anyway, I was in Winners yesterday picking up some more stuffed babies for Bella our rescue pup. (she LOVES to tear the guts out of them, haha), and they had a huge display of beautiful Christmas boxes. This color combo was on one of those boxes, and I thought to myself, “PERFECT – I’ll do this for tomorrow’s video”, so here we are.
Recipe for the Easy Classic Foliage Wreath Card:
Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″, white hammermill, score and fold at 5-1/2
Card front: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Neenah Desert Storm (kraft) – second card front, cut from the same size with the Sizzix Stacked Deckle Dies from Tim Holtz.
Leaves and Sentiment: Matte Gold 2-1/2″ x 8″
Large Leaves: Spellbinders Waterfall cardstock
Smaller Leaves: Simon Says Stamp Mint Cardstock
Sentiment: White cardstock 3″ x 3-1/2″ and Vellum 2″ x 3-1/2″
Adding Artful Elements:
Use Distress Oxide Inks in Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers to add some depth to the colored leaves.
Next, gold heat emboss the edges of the card fronts for a distressed look.
Finally, for the sentiment, cut it once in gold and twice in white. Stack them and then attach to the vellum die cut shadow.
