Be Merry

Be Merry by Jen Shults

Today I’m sharing a Christmas card inspired by the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Boards. Below is a look at the card by Courtney Kelley that inspired this card.

Courtney’s card inspired the simple layout of my card and the center focal point. For my card I used the Sheet Music embossing folder to emboss the Sweet Basil cardstock. I used the sentiment and snowflake die from Mitten Garland die set to make the focal point and sentiment. To glitter up the snowflake I first covered a section of cardstock with pieces of 1/2″ wide Sticky Tape (leave the backing on it) and then I die cut the snowflake. After the snowflake came out of the Big Shot I removed the backing to the adhesive and sprinkled it with White Gold glitter from Martha Stewart Crafts. I used my finger to rub the glitter into the adhesive to make sure it was stuck well. I glued the snowflake to a circle cut from Buttercream Frosting cardstock and then layered that on a circle cut from Toffee cardstock.
