Who says you can only use patterned paper designed for the holidays to create Christmas cards? The gorgeous Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper looks fabulous with the Forever Fern stamp set, but that doesn't mean it won't work for Christmas cards. I've paired it with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Stitched Triangle dies to create two beautiful holiday cards.
I embossed the piece of Whisper White cardstock with one of the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders. This is layered on the card front. The three triangle Christmas Trees are adhered to the piece of 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Whisper White cardstock. I tied a piece of the copper ribbon from the Basket Weave Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack and used a Mini Glue dot to adhere it over the trees. Then, I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set with Just Jade ink. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it over the bow using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. The piece of 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Whisper White cardstock to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals as well.
I stamped the poinsettia pieces with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Then, I colored it with light and dark Petal Pink and dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends. For the leaves, I stamped them on Mint Macaron cardstock and colored them with Pool Party Stampin' Blends alcohol markers because I didn't have the Just Jade ones. I layered the flower and ribbon on a piece of the Forever Greenery patterned paper and then on a piece of Just Jade cardstock. I carefully fussy cut around the top of the flower and layered it again on a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock and then on a Just Jade card base. I just love all the depth, texture, and lushness of this card. The Just Jade cardstock looks almost like a shadow around the poinsettia.
