Night Before Christmas

Today’s card features Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper and the stamp set, Itty Bitty Christmas. I also used the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder and I have to tell you, every time I make a card and emboss a piece of it, I look through all my embossing folders but this is the one I gravitate towards.  It’s just perfect for holiday cards (and more)! 


Night Before Christmas


Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set



As you can see from the picture above, I made a second card using Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the Subtle Embossing Folder, another great folder when you want just a hint of embossing. 


To add some sparkle, before adhering the second layer to the card base, I wrapped our 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon in Gold around the cardstock and tied a bow. The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler, on both cards, and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger scalloped oval was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies. 

If you’d like to create today’s cards, you can find the measurements below the Supply List.
