It's the third week of the month, which means it's time to focus on creating a Christmas card with my featured stamp set this month: Needle & Thread This card may not scream Christmas, but I did try to use elements of the Needlepoint Nook Suite to create a Christmas card.
- Christmas Colors (Old Olive and Poppy Parade)
- Gold Metallic pearls (or ornaments)
You could always add a Christmas specific sentiment in the wreath or at the top of the card front. I was excited to see the Needlepoint Nook DSP had paper with stitching patterns on it in both Old Olive and Poppy Parade.
I love that the Needlepoint Element dies include a die to cut out the smaller stitched flowers individually, so you can layer them however you choose and create quite the bouquet. I did make a few changes to the finished product after the video. I decided to fussy cut my wreath and place it at the top right of the Poppy Parade card stock which left me space to create a bouquet for the card front as well as the inside of the card. I also added some gold metallic pearls for the finishing touch.
