Decorated with Happiness Christmas Greetings Card

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...we've had a special weather statement and rainfall warning here in southwestern New Brunswick. But that's OK - what better time for holiday crafting, when you can't be outside? So here's my Christmas card for today, which was part of our recent $10/month card class at Creative Cafe:


Another card featuring the Decorated with Happiness Bundle, this one features an unusual colour palette for the holidays. (If you missed the other cards, check them out here and here.I love something a little different colour-wise - especially when it comes to seasonal colours - and here I was inspired by the Crushed Curry and Basic Black starry midnight sky paper from the super-versatile Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper (DSP). I matched that up with a Crushed Curry card base, a strip of Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper, and a panel of Basic Black Cardstock embossed with the snowflake pattern from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders

To make the card, I started by cutting out a fancy round label with the Painted Labels Dies, using Basic White Cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink. I also stamped one of each ornament onto scraps of Basic White, using Shaded Spruce and Poppy Parade inks. Then I used the dies to cut them out.

From there, I embossed just the top half of a 3 3/4" x 5" Basic Black panel. I then cut a 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" DSP panel on an angle and adhered it to the black panel. To hide the seam and add some sparkle, I cut a 1/2" wide strip of the gold metallic paper and attached it to the panel, then I flipped over the panel and trimmed the edges. 

Using dimensionals, I added the die-cut ornaments and label, then I embellished with Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The final step was to attach the finished panel to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Crushed Curry card base with dimensionals.
