Christmas Blessings at The Cutting Cafe

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.

A tent card made using The Cutting Cafe's Christmas Ornament Fun cutting file. If you'd like additional information on how this card came together with more images, please visit my blog.

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!

    Love that gold embossed paper on the front. Was this from an embossing folder?

      Yes it was. I saw it on a card and just had to have it. I searched high and low without success. Then, just dumb luck, I was looking in A.C.Moore and there it was as part of a Hello Kitty embossing folder set…who would have thought something so elegant would be a part of what I would think of as a children’s set!

I'd love to hear from you. I so appreciate your comments!
