Hello friends! I am excited to be back on the blog today to share a sparkly Merry Christmas design with you! Today’s card uses several new products from Birch Press Designs latest release! I had a lot of fun, so let’s get started!
I started with a pre-made background for today’s card. I liked the subtle layer of pink and was excited to pair this with blues, white, and lots of sparkle! I started by die cutting the Meridian Ornament Layers set using white card stock, as well as the Festive Glitter paper pad set. I cut layer A and C using white card stock, then layer B was die cut using the Festive Glitter pad. Once these were die cut, I adhered these together using liquid glue. For the ornament topper, I used the Christmas Ornament Pop Up Easel die set. I die cut the topper with white card stock, then added sparkle using embossing powder. I adhered this to the top, then set the ornament aside.
Next I knew I wanted to create a bit of dimension behind my ornament for added texture and interest. I used 2 die sets, Eucalyptus Stems and Berries Contour Layers and Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers. I die cut several of each of these using the Stormy Blue paper pad from Memory Box. Once they were die cut, I added a bit of oxide ink to the fuddled leaves, as well as some embossing powder for added texture. On the berries I die cut an extra set of the berries and added embossing powder as well. I then adhered the top layer of the berries onto the stems.
Next I die cut a few snowflakes using the Felicity Snowflakes die set using the Festive Glitter pad. I used the same color of glitter card stock as I used in my ornament. I then die cut my sentiment using the Handwritten Merry Christmas die set. I die cut the shadow layer using vellum and then the Handwritten sentiment using 2 paper pads: Vintage pastel Mirror Pad and the Festive Glitter Pad. I adhered these together using liquid glue.
Next I trimmed down my pink background panel and added a bit of embossing powder to the edges. I then added a bit of ink to darken the edges a bit to add a vintage look. I then prepared all my die cuts by adding foam tape for added dimension. I then adhered these down to my card panel using a combination of adhesive (liquid glue and foam tape). I added my sentiment to the ornament to complete my card!
I had so much fun creating today’s sparkly Christmas card! Be sure to check out the amazing new holiday items! I know you will love them! I will be back soon with more inspiration!
