Be Merry



Hey everyone, Anne from Anne-Made here today sharing sharing a Christmas card that I created with you.  You may think I made this to send out for 2020, but as I waited till the last minute this year, I vowed to get started on my 2021 Christmas cards sooner.  So this is my first Christmas card for 2021! 😆.

I used the following dies, many of which are oldies, but goodies:

Dee's Distinctively: Mini Stars
Dee's Distinctively: Mini Decorations
Cheery Lynn Designs: Christmas Light Swag
Pink & Main: Bold Christmas dies (Special Order Sale) (any of these would work)
Sizzix: Tim Holtz's Cutout Script (any of these would work)
Lifestyle Crafts: Nesting Scalloped Ovals (these Dee's Distinctively dies would work well)
Kat Scrapiness: Stitched and Layers Christmas Tree die (Special Order Sale) (many of these will work)
Honey Bee: Plaid A7 Cover Plate-Base (many background cover plates would work)
Honey Bee: Plaid A7 Cover Plate-Top (many background cover plates would work)

I began this project by die cutting out the various pieces from specialty papers and cardstock.






Next I began assembling the smaller pieces - the Christmas lights and layering the ornaments and stars together to add more dimension. Once these were adhered together, the rest of the card is quick and easy.  I die cut and assembled enough of these for a future card as well.😀

Once everything was ready, I created my card base from kraft cardstock and adhered the plaid background down first. Then I began assembling the Christmas tree and adding my tree skirt (the thin oval) to the front. Finally, I added my sentiment die cut from two different companies.
