Modern Christmas Card with Corduroy Brad Ornaments

IMG_0890 copy

When I saw this card I just knew the Corduroy Brads would make perfect “ornaments”. The card base is baja breeze, layered with the Holiday DSP Bulk Buy in a striped design. The circles were made using Circle Nestabilities (2nd and 3rd largest) from Real Red textured card stock and whisper white card stock.

Using the cropadile, I punched 3 holes in the white circle and added large corduroy brads (kiwi kiss, baja breeze, basic gray). To secure them, I added a glue dot to the back of each so they wouldn’t spin around. Next, adhere the white circle to the red circle and the red circle to the DSP base. I then took some Silver Cord and wrapped it around the brads, bringing it up around the back of the DSP. A line of snail on the back of the DSP keeps the cord ends secure.

To finish off the card, I attached the DSP to the baja breeze base and stamped “Merry Christmas” from Season of Joy in Real Red on whisper white card stock. I then trimmed out the sentiment and attached it to the front using dimensionals.

Midnight Sparkle–Navy Blue Christmas Cards

The first card I made uses Night of Navy card stock as the base. I stamped it with the swirl from Season of Joy in Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

The main image is the christmas tree from Season of Joy, again stamped in Versamark, heat embossed with Silver embossing powder on Night of Navy card stock. I layered that onto a piece of Silver card stock. Next, I punched a hole at the bottom of that layer with the crop a dile and added a glittered corduroy brad. I just put a large glue dot over the top of the Basic Gray Corduroy Brad and dipped it in Dazzling Diamonds glitter. It’s that easy!

After attaching the brad and adhering the layer to the base with dimensionals, I stamped “sparkle” from Warm Words in Versamark on Night of Navy card stock and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder. Then, I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and layered it with a silver backing made with the Modern Label Punch.

For a little added touch, I took Silver Cord and looped it above the brad, attaching the ends to the back of the Modern Label with glue dots. Finally, I added some dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.

This next card has a lot of sparkle! The card base here is Not Quite Navy, stamped with the snowflake from Season of Joy in Platinum Shimmer Paint. I also sponged the Shimmer Paint onto the christmas tree image from the same stamp set, stamping it on NQ Navy and paper piercing around the edges. That was layered with Silver card stock.

The sentiment is from Christmas Greetings, stamped in Platinum Shimmer Paint as well. Since the shimmer paint dries so quickly, this card took hardly any time to make and assemble. It’s like getting the look of silver embossing in one easy step!
