It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Quick Cards with Katrina Thompson

Hello all and thankyou for joining with me again today. While we blinked and September has passed us by, Oct is now upon us and Christmas is just a hop and skip away, so it's definitely "Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas"!! This is now the perfect time to get those Christmas cards into full production.
Today I have a quick card using a few layers of the Adhesive Chipboard Shapes as the focus. Combined with coordinating patterned prints from the 12x12 pad and dies to enhance, this card can be put together in 20 minutes.
By altering the layout of the same design elements you can come up with many wonderful combinations to change the look each time so every card is unique.

Cut your Carnelian 12x12 in half to create your card base. Score in half and ink the edges in white. Cut a Cinnamon layer, 14cm square then a print from the 12x12 paper pad, 13.5cm square that coordinates with the Chipboard that your using. Ink in a coordinating colour.

Layer your print onto the Cinnamon, then the whole piece onto the Carnelian base.
Select your Adhesive Chipboard shapes. For this card I have chosen the pieces pictured above.

Cut the Poinsettia flower die from the Battle Fatigue cardstock. Cut the Merry Christmas die from the Garnet cardstock using the Die Cut and Bond to make these finer designs easier to adhere. Lightly ink in coordinating colours to give some light and shadow.

Layer the Chipboard pieces as pictured. These are stickers, so peel away the backing to attach. Wedge some 3d dots/foam under the top edge of the square holly piece so it stays flat and secure.
Peel the Die Cut and Bond backing from the Merry Christmas die cut and attach. Stick the Poinsettia chipboard to the Poinsettia die cut then attach it, overlapping as pictured.

Until next time Happy Creating!! K
