Today I'm sharing an elegant Christmas card that incorporates a personal photo. To create this card I used the Altenew Festive Silhouettes Stamp Set and the Poinsettia & Pine Stamp Set.

First of all, I cut out this beautiful, elegant envelope out of craft cardstock using a cut file. Then I created the poinsettia and branch die cuts with Altenew Poinsettia & Pine Stamp & Die, using gold heat embossing technique. I stamped the image on colorful cardstock as I am not so good at watercoloring.

Next step was to make the insert with the sentiment and personal photo. The holiday wishes were made with Altenew Festive Silhouettes Stamp Set. I chose again the gold heat embossing technique as this is the best way to make something festive and elegant. In the end, I added tiny colorful stars which are coordinate with the Christmas tree decoration in the background of the photo.

I also created a process video, so you can see better how I made this easy but unique Christmas card. You can watch my video here or in HD at Youtube. I hope you like my project! blop-hop-sponsors

This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen! Wow, I am impressed! We’re not worthy. LOL Of course you have a die cutter so you can make this beautiful card. I am one of those who doesn’t have a die cutter so there is no way I could make anything like this, darn it all. You did an amazing job on this. Whoever gets this card is going to be so amazed and will love it. If they don’t, I’ll take it!
