Silver Blog Hop with Fall Mini Catalog

Welcome to the Silver to Silver Elite August Blog Hop

Sharing a Holiday Card from products in the August to December 2021 Mini Catalog

Since I love Christmas, it was easy to design a Christmas card for this Blog Hop. I used products from the Painted Christmas Suite on pages 16-19.

I'm calling this design a Fixed Double Point Layout.

Tent style vertical card design

To create this card you'll need the following products and use as directed:

Real Red Cardstock for card base, cut 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2"

Soft Succulent Cardstock layer, cut 4" x 5-1/4" and embossed with the 
Tasteful Textures Embossing Folder (Do not adhere to card front yet!)

Evening Evergreen Cardstock - 3-1/2" x 4" piece for die cut from the Seasonal Labels Die set

Basic White Cardstock, two pieces:
Inner layer, cut 4" x 5-1/4"
Seasonal Label Die Cut tag 3" square

Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper - two pieces cut 4" wide x 3" tall. Pay attention to directionality. Score at 1" on the 3" side

To make the pointed sections as shown on the card face, you will fold up the 1" scored section and crease with bone folder, then unfold. Then you will fold each upper corner inward to make the triangle section as shown.  Add a little adhesive to hold the folded triangles in place.

Run adhesive on the one inch section and place it on the backside of the embossed Soft Succulent layer. Those triangles are meant to be sandwiched between the Real Red card base and the embossed layer.

Christmas Season Stamp Set - I used the little tiny dots in the bottom center stamped in Real Red ink on the inner Basic White card layer.

Christmas to Remember Stamp Set for the greeting stamped in Real Red Ink.

3/8" Mini Real Red Ruffled Ribbon for Bow, attached with Glue Dots.

Lastly, embellish the Basic White tag with three Red Rhinestones. Adhere the inner Basic White layer. Cut a 2-3/8" x 6" piece of the matching Designer Series Paper to cover the Basic White envelope flap for an extra coordinated look.

Looks fabulous! This design will go together quickly and you'll be able to make several Christmas cards of this design for your holiday sending or giving.
