One of the many projects that I've finished but haven't been able to show you yet, is a Christmas card that I made for the latest Control Freak swap. Now that the swap cards have been received by everybody who participated, I can share it with all of you.
The swap theme was new Christmas products from the Holiday Catalog. If you look closely at the Pear Pizzazz layer, you'll see that I used the On Point embossing folder. I like how the design is very subtle and doesn't distract from the rest of the card.
I stamped the sentiment in Lost Lagoon ink and then cut it out using the Chalk Talk Framelits. I colored in the word "holiday" and the olive in the martini glass using my Pear Pizzazz marker. I stamped the sentiment again in Lost Lagoon ink on Soft Sky card stock and cut out the "cheer" banner and attached it to the sentiment using dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to a piece of Brushed Silver card stock that I cut out with my Oval Framelits. Although the silver layer looks dull in the picture, it shimmers and glimmers. It's really pretty. I finished the sentiment by adding a bow using my Whisper White Organza ribbon.
The inside of the card is similar to the front. I took the smallest snowflake from the Letterpress Winter stamp set and stamped it around the edges using Lost Lagoon ink. Very clean and simple.
I know it's not even Halloween yet, but it's time to start thinking about making your Christmas cards.
