Still need some Christmas card ideas? This clean and simple card is easy to make and wouldn't take long to make multiples.
I've chosen just two of the versatile images from the Joyous Celebrations stamp set for today's card. The oval Designer Frames Embossing Folder creates a lovely textured frame on Crumb Cake card stock.
Layered across the embossed oval is a flagged strip of patterned paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. For the focal image, the deer is heat embossed using Early Espresso Embossing Powder, cropped with the XL Oval Punch and layered onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
To add interest and a pop of color to the bottom of the card, I've die-cut a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Finishing Touches Edgelits and added just a thin strip of Crumb Cake card stock over it. The greeting is also heat embossed with Early Espresso just above the decorative strip.
To finish up the card, I added a cute bow using Cherry Cobbler Sweater Trim.
Did you notice the Sweater Trim in the Holiday Catalog? It really is just like a soft knitted sweater - not stiff or too bulky - and cute as all get out on cards as well as boxes, bags, tags and the like.
