Merry Christmas {Frantic Stamper Guest Designer}



Hi there!  Did you see the news last week that I'm a guest designer over at Frantic Stamps? They have a great inventory of products and the most amazing dies. Click here to check them out!

I have a goal to make 15 Christmas cards a month but am very far behind!  So, I thought I'd start by design team with a Christmas card. I die cut the sentiment from gold paper and adhered it to the black cardstock. I was a bit off center so I added a touch of patterned paper down the edge to ground the sentiment.  I find that adding a touch of striped, polka dot or chevron paper gives a little extra to a CAS design. To finish off the card I added a few sequins. Certainly wanted this fabulous sentiment to do the talking on this card!

Love your card. The die cut looks awesome in gold against the black and the strip of red/white is a great touch.

You're right. That little bit of pattern paper pops without detracting from that lovely gold sentiment. Congrats on your GD spot.
