It’s here! Almost. Holiday prep is gonna mean a whole lot more now that we are in high gear getting ready for it. My card today features the bold Christmas Means More set. This set feature big bold sentiments of some of the traditional sayings we associate with holiday movies. For this card, it seemed the stamped sentiment deserved all the attention and I made sure it got it!
The card makes a great WOW card, but I could also see this as a framed decor piece. The holly leaves and pine branches are from the Cherish The Season Suite die cuts and the berries are my favorite Red Rhinestones. I have gone through 3 packs already this year. I think I put them on everything.
The red star is one of the glitter star ornaments colored with Real Red. I used a sponge dauber and kept “daubing” until I got the shade red I liked. I also thought the sentiment needed a vintage look. I thought the houndstooth from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP fit that need well.
This card is all about big and bold and it would certainly bring a smile to anyone face who got it! The rush is upon us. And the best stress reliever I have found is to find some time to stamp and make cards, tags, decor, gifts, whatever you like. The calm you get from crafting can’t be beat. And all the paper hugs you give this season will be so appreciated after this crazy 2020 year!
