We’ve made it friends. We’re in the home stretch to the end of this incredibly…. odd year. How are you doing? Personally, I like to think that we’re through the thick of things as far as COVID goes, but in addition, all of the other events that 2020 has brought. I know I’m not the only one who has experienced her fair share of challenges and lows, so if you have too, trust me – I feel ya, and I’m sending a great big, warm, virtual hug your way today.
Moving on to today’s card, it’s a quick one that you’ll need your die cutting machine for! My jumbo greeting-loving self pulled out this Falala die from The Stamp Market which was released last year, and realized I hadn’t made a single holiday card with it this season. With just a little bit of time for a crafting session, I envisioned a mostly-white card with some pops of colour and a bit of sparkle. And that’s exactly what happened!
To begin, I created a striped panel using various colours of jewel-toned cardstock. I used the Falala die to cut one layer from this panel, as well as one from a piece of heavyweight white cardstock. While I was at it, I also die cut a bunch of holly and berries. My time-saving hack here was to back that white cardstock with a double-sided adhesive sheet so that it would just be a matter of peel-and-stick later.
After trimming a piece of vellum to be just a touch smaller than my white card base, I arranged and adhered the holly and berry pieces all over the vellum. The Falala’s were layered on top of each other, and I used skinny foam strips to stick them to the vellum piece. A few little bits of crystal confetti finished it off.
I hope you’re having a lovely week, and I’ll see you back here soon for another card. Thanks for stopping by!
