JustRite June Release: Charming Christmas CAS cards

Charm Dies

Hi Everyone,

Today over at the JustRite blog we are showing peeks from the stamp set: Charming Christmas - which is a set of 7 stamps that coordinate with Charm Dies that was released exclusively by JustRite Stamps. Love when things coordinate! For my project today - I wanted to keep it simple and clean - or at least try to :) One thing that I always need during the holidays is a set of simple cards - either to be given as a gift in and of itself  - or to give to teachers, neighbors etc. So I decided to make a quick set of 5 cards with the heart stamp as the center - and I made them assembly style. 

I first punched out the tags and crimped the lighter shade o blue and attached them together (5 times). I then stamped the heart in clear EP and then added some Stardust EP and embossed it over the blue cardstock and then die cut it out (cutting out the part for the hole). I then added some lace, two sizes of snowflakes (one in vellum and the other in a metallic shade of silver) and put a bling in the center of the snowflakes. I finished it of with some silver ribbon and liquid pearls and then mounted each tag with dimensionals and added it to the card base with approximately measures 3.75 x 4.5 or so. Each card base was sponged and then swiss dotted with rounded corners with the corner chomper.  I might have gone a bit happy with the dimensionals :) I think it is a very layered card even though I was trying to keep it simple :) Here is a closer view of one of the cards. 

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Bazzill and PTI cardstoc
Stamps: Charming Christmas from JustRite Stampers
Inks: Bahama Blue from Memento
Accessories: liquid pearls, chunky glitter, circle punch, snowflake punches from Martha, corner chomper, vintage lace ribbon and silver ribbon from scratch. 

I love the white space in this card along with lots of activity in the focal point - and it was so fun to emboss this beautiful heart - can't wait to emboss and create cards with the rest of the stamps in this super sweet stamp set: Please check out all the amazing designers who are hopping along to preview this stamp set today - I love each of their projects and how they showcased a unique feature of today's stamp set:
