Can you believe the Christmas Holiday is only 6 months away? That means it is the perfect time to get ahead and start thinking about holiday cards! The Kindred Christmas stamp set by Kindred Stamps offers these holiday cuties and fun sentiments to start creating holiday cards and ornaments.
Here is the front and back side of this circle shaker ornament. If you have a set of circle nesting dies then you are able to make shaker embellishments for cards and other paper projects. Below is the front and back side of the ornament. I used a piece of black craft foam that came with an adhesive backing on it. I use a large circle die and then the next smallest to create the foam opening for the shaker card. I then used the nesting dies to create the white open circles used to frame each side of the ornament.
I created the front and back background using Distress Oxide ink on blue cardstock. I stamped on trees in black and green ink. After I added small white dots using a white pigment ink gel pen i splashed the entire disk with Whip Cream Silk to create a bokeh look. Next I glued the stamped snowmen in place and add the black foam circle frame adhesive side down.
I added some Silver Shavings to the middle opening and using liquid glue adhere a clear acetate circle on top of the foam frame to seal the shaving in the ornament. Lastly I added the white cardstock frame on top of the acetate and completed the look with a picket fence and our cozy Kindred Christmas gal.
I created the same background technique for the back disk with no trees or snow added , but I used a small deer silhouette and the "OH DEER Christmas is Here!" sentiment with the Kindred Christmas reindeer cutie and the second white cardstock frame.
My second project is a holiday card created from holiday cardstock in my stash and another Kindred Christmas cutie. I die cut the open stars circle in Pomegranate Splash cardstock and used the leftover black adhesive foam circle from the ornament project in the center of the card. Added a smaller circle of plaid cardstock, a bow and this sweet holiday friend. Using another piece of the plaid, I stamped on the sentiment and stuck it on with foam squares to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed these two Christmas in July creations using the Kindred Christmas stamp set. When do you start on your holiday cards? Leave me a comment letting me know what you might like to see next. I love hearing from you!
Happy creating - be inspired
