Hello crafty friends! Are you getting into the holiday spirit yet? I certainly am, and I’d love to show you how I created two individual cards using the same process. These cards were quick to make and the outcome is beautiful, and whats more, sparkly! Who doesn’t love a little sparkle in their holiday cards?
For my first card, I’ve created this traditional red and gold palette card using the new Grandois Bevel Plate and Mini Grandois Bevel Plate layer sets. These sets work perfectly together to create a full A2 size design, leaving a small space in between for a sentiment. For mine, I went with the new Falala Honey Script die, which comes with the word and shadow dies. It fits perfectly in this space and I didn’t feel that it needed any sub sentiment with it, as it’s large enough to make the point come across. I just love how the larger Birch Press dies command the space of cards and become the focal point. I added quite a bit of sparkle to this card with both the top layer in a red sparkle card stock, and also the word “falala” in a gold sparkle card stock. I love the way red and gold look together on Holiday cards, especially.
For my second card, I used the same type of bevel dies, only this time it’s the Dazzle and Mini Dazzle Bevel Plates. Again, I added my sparkle layer (silver, this time) as the top layer and decided to use a more winter color palette of blues. These dies are great and easy to switch up as I did here, rotating my card front to leave the space at the bottom half of the card. This shifts the focus and would be an especially great thing to do if giving a set of these cards as a gift. It changes the dynamic just enough to appear as a completely different card.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed learning about how I added some sparkle to these holiday cards using some of the newest Bevel Plate Sets. I’d love to hear what you think and which is more to your taste! Thank you again, and I’ll see you very soon!
