Hi everyone! This is Maria from Stamp, Cut, Create! Today I have a Texas Christmas card to share with you. I found the stamp, by Texana Designs, and thought it would be perfect for cards I send to friends and family out of state.I started with a red 5.5" by 4.25" piece of red card stock which was matted with a 5.25" by 4" piece of print paper from October Afternoon. The Texas image is from the 50 States cartridge and cut at about 3". It's embossed using a folder from The Paper Studio. I rubbed the embossed image with Versamark to give the stars a little more depth.
The wreath was made by first creating and cutting a doughnut shape in dark green.
The wreath was then placed over the Texas image and the entire thing was then glued to the card base. To finish, I added some Christmas Red stickles (which I didn't let dry long enough before I picked the card up :/ ) and a tiny red bow to the wreath.
To create the label, I first stamped the sentiment on a piece of white card stock. It was then cut out with a Nestibilities label 18. After I cut it, I left the paper in the die, then used it as a template for adding the faux stitching with a red Copic Spica Glitter Marker.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by today, I know how busy this time of year can be! I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year!
