How To Create A Fun & Festive Card That’s All About The Sentiment- Lydia’s Crafty Corner

by Lydia Evans

Hello there, everyone! Happy Friday! Today, I'll be sharing a fun and festive card that is all about the sentiment. 20201113 110452I don't know why, but ‘MERRY & BRIGHT' has to be my favorite holiday sentiment; just hearing it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. So that's why I decided to make it the focal point on my card today.

20201113 110456 1I started by cutting Mega Ampersand Die into place onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of white cardstock to use as a window. I stamped images from Piles of Presents Stamp Set to peek through. For the images, I used Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Baby Pink, Fuchsia, Grass Field, Mountain Pine, Volcano Lake, and Lagoon Inks to stamp the cute little presents. Once stamped, I used Embossing Ink and Rose Gold Embossing Powder to add the twine before die cutting with the coordinating dies.

20201113 110502When I had my cute little die-cuts, I used the die-cut panel to draw around the ampersand onto my card base to use as a guide. With this guide in place, I adhered the die-cut images using foam tape. Then, I added the die-cut panel over the top.

For the rest of the sentiment, I cut the letters I needed from Tall Alpha Die Set from Gold Foil Cardstock. Then, I used a ruler to line up the pieces before adhering them into place using glue tape.

To see how this card came together, please watch the video below. Or watch it over on YouTube:
