Embossed Bells and Boughs card

Good morning! Here’s another striking card that you can give to the special people on your Christmas Card list. However, this is really a very quick and simple card to make. I love cards that have a huge “Wow!” impact, but are really easy to make. And this is one of those cards.

My card base is Crumb Cake, and I have a Soft Suede piece that’s 4-1/4” x 2-3/4”. I stamped the Poinsettia from the Bells and Boughs stamp set with VersaMark ink and embossed both images with Silver Embossing Powder. Next, I stamped Merry Christmas from the Petite Pairs stamp set in the upper right corner.

I used the Lace Ribbon Border Punch on a piece of Cherry Cobbler. Then I “threaded” some Very Vanilla ribbon through the punched strip. And if you don’t like tying bows or knots, this is the ribbon treatment for you – just add a ribbon fold with a silver brad and you’re done.

Thanks for stopping by, and please let me know if you have any questions.
