With this month's paper collection, White Pines, I decided to get a head start on some of my Christmas cards.

I first saw this type of card back in July when Donna Digby posted her winning Canada Day card entry. I thought it was very different and knew that I wanted to try making this type of card. 

I embellished my card using gold sequins, gold foil trim and gold washi tape. I used green glitter paper to cut out a shape to use as a background to my sentiment. 

I added another little folding tag on the back of the card to add a personal message. I also made slightly different varieties of the same card. 

For this one-I added some gold shimmer trim and some red enamel gems.  I used the Joyful Garland stamp set with cranberry ink to stamp my sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed viewing this fun card. Please feel free to leave a comment!

Your next stop is Kerry's Blog.
Thanks for joining us this month and come back next month to see what creative projects we can bring to you!

  1. Love these cards! They are so different and unique!

  2. Great cards! I havent tried this style of card. Will put that on my need to try list.

  3. I'm always amazed at how different the same design can look, by changing up the colours and bling!! All very stunning!!!
