Peace at Christmas Card

Peace at Christmas Card by Bridget Louw




Hi Bridget here again with another quick and easy project to make, using an array of wonderful Couture Creations products.

For those of you who have seen a few of my Couture Creations projects know I am nuts about white-on-white cards. I think they are so lovely and showcase the dies and embossing folders so beautifully. This year’s collection of Christmas themed embossing folders by Couture Creations, Wrapped in Joy are no exception. The one I chose to use today is C0723594 Peace and Joy Embossing Folder.

The card measurements are:
White Cardstock Embossed panel 6 5/8”x 4 5/8”
Silver Glitter Cardstockl 6 3/4”x 4 3/4”
Base piece measures 7” x 10” scored at 5”

Using the Peace and Joy Embossing Folder, emboss the white panel. 

 Attach it to the glitter piece using double sided tape.

The next step is to cut out the small die from C0723050 Fleur de Frame Die Set and stamp your Christmas sentiment on it with silver ink. Stick it onto the embossed panel using C0721963 Foam mounting Tape

I was fortunate enough to have the perfect satin white ribbon with a silver edge which matched the colour scheme of the card perfectly. I made a double bow and placed it above the sentiment.

Once all pieces are attached to each other, stick it to the card base using double sided tape.

ANY of the Wrapped in Joy Embossing Folders will work for this style of cards, so try them all.
