The Tidings of Christmas DSP has beautiful patterns that work well for this simple yet striking design. I was in need of another dozen Christmas Cards at the last minute and this design along with the 6 x 6 DSP was just what I was looking for.
You can get 10 squares out of one sheet of the DSP – 4 from each end and 2 from the center. The Postage Stamp punch makes card making a breeze. The sentiment was punched with the Tailored Tag punch. I think punches really assist in making quick cards and are particularly great for those who are just starting out in the paper crafting world and don’t have many dies to choose from.
I used Evening Evergreen (In Color), Merry Merlot, and Very Vanilla cardstock. I rarely use Merry Merlot, even though it is a beautiful color, but it was absolutely perfect for this card. The rhinestones came from the Holiday Rhinestone pack and just gave the card that little extra sparkle that seems to tie it all together.
A tutorial is in the works but as it is Christmas week, it may be a day or two before it gets posted. When it does, I’ll link it here. Until then, here are the dimensions:
- Evening Evergreen: 8 ½ x 5 ½ scored at 4 ¼
- Very Vanilla: 4 5/8 x 3 3/8
- Merry Merlot: 4 ½ x 3 1/4
I hope this finds each of you well and able to enjoy this beautiful Christmas season to its fullest. Jesus is the reason for the season – and I am eternally grateful.
