December 25th - Christmas Card a Day

Thanks for checking out my cards this month. For this one you will need the Believe paper set. Cut holiday red cardstock 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and fold in half. Put the front half in your trimmer and make 5 horizontal lines with your dry embossing tool. No need to sand these. Distress with chocolate ink. Cut the green starred paper 2" by 4 1/4", distress with chocolate ink and attach under the last embossed line.

Cut a piece of the striped pattern paper 1" by 4 1/4", distress and attach across center of green starred paper.

Cut a piece of sky cardstock 2" by 2", distress and attach in a diamond shape in center of patterned strip.

Cut a piece of holiday red cardstock 1 3/4" by 1 3/4", distress and attach on sky cardstock piece.

Cut a piece of white cardstock 1 1/2" by 1 1/2", distress and stamp the December 25th stamp in the center. This stamp comes from the Believe stamp set that you can only get in the Believe Workshop on the Go. Attach horizonatlly in the center of the red cardstock.

Stamp Merry Christmas from the last month's special stamp, Holiday Wishes, using topiary ink.

When I first started with Close to my Heart we had these cool clear adhesive squares and circles, I still have some left so I threw it directly on the December 25th piece. If you like the glossy look you can get the same result by covering the stamped image with liquid glass.

Add some sparkles at each corner of the holiday red square and three next to the Merry Christmas stamped image. If you like anything you see today, be sure to click on the links to get your own paper and goodies!


  1. This is a really cute card. I love the sparkles.

  2. I never thought of using sparkles like brads...great idea! Love this kit...I made a bunch of cards with it this year!

  3. Well they are super easy because of the adhesive and not having to worry about the backs.
