 Beautiful Boughs Christmas Card

Before assembly - Cut out all of the pine boughs from the Beautiful Boughs Dies with Garden Green Cardstock. Also cut 2 large and 1 small pine cones from Early Espresso Cardstock.
1. Using snail adhere the bottom DSP to the top DSP to create one sheet that covers the Vanilla Cardstock.
 2. Cut 5" from the Crumb Cake Ribbon in the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack. Adhere a small area on the front and tuck the edges around the back.
 3. Place liquid glue and snail on the back side.
 4. Add to the card base.
 5. Stamp the greeting with Early Espresso Ink in the center of Very Vanilla cardstock.
 6. Cut it out using the large label die from the Beautiful Boughs Die Set.
 7. Add snail to the back of the greeting and arrange the boughs and pine cones behind the greeting any way you like.
 8. Using dimensionals to help it pop away from the card adhere the greeting and boughs anywhere along the center of the card front.
 9. Add some embellishments. These red dots really pop with the green background.

A Delightful Mosaic Mood Card

 1- Adhere the large piece of DSP to the card front using snail adhesive.

 2- Add the smaller piece using the other design as the front.
 3- Place a strip of Soft Suede Cardstock to act as a transition piece between the 2 pieces of DSP.
Reverse Masking Technique:
For this card I wanted this greeting but didn't want the confetti around it. So I created a mask to remove it.

1- On a post-it note stamp the image.
 2- Using a pair of scissors create a slit to the part of the image you want to keep and cut it out.
 3- Place the Post-it Note on the cardstock. Use a piece of washi tape to adhere the slit down.
 4- Ink and stamp your image. Make sure to line it up with the previously stamped images on the post-it note.
 5- Remove the post-it note. Ta Da!
Now back to the card

4- Stamp your greeting on a piece of whisper white cardstock.
5- Use any other stamps you want to embellish your greeting.
6- Cut out your greeting with a shape die, like this circle die
 7- Run some snail along the back of your greeting and the adhere some metallic thread. I used gold - which is retired, sorry.
 8- Punch out some leaves or branches or flowers. I used this sprig punch and punched 4 from the garden green cardstock.
 9- Adhere them behind the greeting as well.

 10- Add the greeting to your card using dimensionals

11- Add some bling with embellishments. I use gold sequins, also retired.

I have also created a video showing you the same process I go through to make these cards. I hope you enjoy it!
