VIDEO: 'Tis the Season
By Kandis Smith

Make your Christmas cards extra special with stamps, coordinating die cuts, and some fun and festive embellishments.

Watch the video below for a complete how-to. (Click the fullscreen button in the lower right to see it larger.)

Here's a recap of the instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of Pine layering paper in half. Fold one into a card and set other piece to the side.
  2. Cut a 2"x5.5" piece of patterned paper from the Nordic Holiday paper pad. Adhere down center of card. Set aside.
  3. Grab that piece of pine layering paper that you set aside. Stamp the Very Best Holiday wreath in green on the white side of the paper. Cut out using matching diecut frame. Adhere to card using foam adhesive.
  4. Place felt flowers on wreath and add gemstones and pearls.
  5. Stamp sentiment in black on kraft paper strip. Cut a "V" out of each end to make a banner. Adhere across wreath using foam adhesive.
