Many blogs jumped on the Christmas in July bandwagon; but at The Cutting Cafe we’re going rogue! We’re celebrating Christmas in August! Our challenge was to use any of the Christmas cut files or printable stamp sets, and there are many, for our project today. After much deliberation, I chose to work with the Christmas Ornament Fun file to make my card today.
This file is chock full of options! There’s nesting ornaments, shaped, folded and window cards and two borders. I used the window card and the nesting ornaments to make a suspension card and I added an extra piece on the bottom to make it a tent card.
I cut the ornament from textured patterned paper and added a bit of bling across the front and finished off with a stamped, curved banner across the top. Here’s a closer look at that:
I placed the sentiment on the back of the card, double matting it. Inside the card I placed an embossed panel just because I didn’t want to leave it unadorned…heaven forbid!
Here’s the recipe:
- Cut File: The Cutting Cafe-Christmas Ornament Fun
- Card Stock: Stampin’ Up’-Whisper White, Whisper White
- Patterned Paper: Anna Griffin-Christmas Paper Pack
- Stamp Set: Stampin’ Up’-Christmas Pines
- Ink: Tsukineko Encore Gold
- Embellishments: Eyelet Outlet Gold Enamel Dots
