Happy Friday, friends! Did you see last week’s Christmas release from The Greetery? I loved everything in it, but I have to admit my favorites from the release were the Jumbo Curiosity Ornaments. I didn’t get to spend as much time with them as I wanted to last week, so I made time this week especially for them. I spent a whole day dedicated to Christmas cards, and ended up with 8!
I started with The beautiful Jumbo Curiosity Bell Ornament. I think this bell is absolutely darling, and it made a perfect substitute for the “o” in Abundant Joy. I attached the letters and ornament to a Twinkle Background, and finished with a Christmas Pudding Bow.
I made a second card exactly the same, this time with a pink bell, and silver glitter paper.
My next card is also over on the Greetery Blog today.
I have never put turquoise and yellow together, but I am so glad I finally did! I am really happy with how this turned out. I knew I was going to have a turquoise background, and picked Aged Patina Distress Oxide ink to ink the ornaments with. I didn’t know what I wanted the second color to be, and wondered what Wild Honey Distress Oxide would look like. This is the end result. LOVE!
Since I always have pink in the back of mind while crafting, I thought it would be fun to make pink Christmas cards.
I started with a pink and white Twinkle background, then used an A2 Arches die to die-cut a window. I stenciled a bit of yellow in the window using an A2 Arches stencil, and Attached the card together. I finished the card with an Arched Holiday Sentiment.
I didn’t want to throw away the arch I had die-cut, so I used it to make a second pink card.
I used the same concept for my next two cards, this time using a black and gold Twinkle background.
I started with making an arched window, and stenciled inside the window. I added the Spire ornament and sentiment, and topped the ornament off with a red bow.
I used the die-cut arch to make the background for the window on my second card, and added a sweet red bell ornament. I finished the card with an Opposites Attract Holiday Sentiment.
My final card showcases the last two Jumbo Round Ornaments I had left over.
I did the same steps as I did with the other arched window cards, and used Lucky Clover to stamp the sentiment with.
