Be Dazzled by Painted Christmas

I love gorgeous papers, big sentiments, slanted designs and festive (un-messy) shine. I combined all three of these things into one design for the Christmas card I’m sharing with you today. I hope you love the card as much as I loved making it. Here’s my card:

Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper, Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, Playful Alphabet Dies, Stampin Up!, Brian KingMy card starts with two pieces of the GORGEOUS Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. I cropped a 5″ x 3-3/4″ panel of the red-tiled pattern and a 5″ x 2-1/2″ panel of the page with pine branches and berries. I cut the top panel at an angel and glued it on top of the red-tiled page. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper:

Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up! 156292While there’s no Just Jade listed in this paper, some of watercolor shades of Garden Green appear light and bright like Just Jade, making it a perfect accent for this panel. I added a 1″ band of Real Red cardstock across the angle I had cut with the Designer Series Papers and trimmed along the side of the focal panel. Using the ever-useful Playful Alphabet Dies, I cropped the five letters from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, one of the products you can choose for free during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 order. Here’s a look at this paper:

Because the strip is 1″ (and the letters are 3/4″ tall), it was easy to line up the letters along the Real Red strip. Here’s a closer look at the shiny letters on the front of my card:

After working with this Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, it’s now on my list – I definitely plan to earn more during the coming month-and-a-half. Yay!
