I’ve got 2 cards to share with you using basic sketches and incorporating the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper. This has got to be one of my favourites in the Holiday Catalogue. With it’s beautiful colours and copper accents it’s so luxurious and has some lovely patterns.
I wanted this card to showcase the lovely DSP so I used it in different ways.
Embossing folders are a quick way to add some texture and depth to your card and I’ve used 3 on this card. The Woodland folder tied in with the deer and the Corrugated folder is one of my favourites. The deer itself has been embossed and looks quite regal in Merry Merlot. Even simple layouts can be brought to life with Embossing folders.
The next card has the same deer but I used the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle to enhance this card. The leaves are the offcuts from the border die in that set. I also used some elements from the Soft Sayings card kit – label and leaves.
You will notice that I have heat embossed the sentiment in gold. This was a sentiment I already had made and thought it looked good on the card. When I think about it now, copper embossing powder would have probably worked better but it looks ok and I’ve gone with it. So that’s how the card ended up.
The popularity of the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper is such that it is on low inventory and may not last the entire Holiday Catalogue sale period. So, if you want to get your hands on it, order some today so you don’t miss out.
