Merry and Bright…by Emma

Hi everyone!! Well, December is here and if you’re like me and still haven’t found time to make all your Christmas cards…maybe my cards might inspire you to start creating.

This month, I’ve been working with the gorgeous Merry and Bright collection. I love the warm colour tones in this collection and another great thing about it is, there are so many paper designs within this collection that aren’t for Christmas and can be used all year round. It’s just another stunning range from Kaisercraft and here is the first card project that I made ~ as always, I really hope you like it!

I decided to make a stepper card for my first project, which would enable me to show off all the beautiful die cuts that you get in the Collectables pack. To begin with I used a piece of the Luminous 12″ x 12″ paper to cover the front of my stepper card, which I distressed around the edges to give an aged look to the paper. I then arranged and added some of the die cuts from the Collectables pack and stuck them onto the front of my card. I used the Tim Holtz Rosette Die from Sizzix to create two rosettes from a piece of the Vivid 12′ x 12″ paper and stacked these on top of one another.

I attached the stacks onto my card front and then added the “25” from the Merry and Bright Sticker Sheet. Finally, I added small adhesive pearls as accents on my die cuts.

For my second card project, I made an 8″ x 8″ card…

For this card, I used a piece of the Vivid 12″ x 12″ paper cut to size to cover my card blank, which I slightly distressed around the edge. I then matted a piece of the Vanilla Weave Kaisercard over the covered card front and layered a piece of decorative paper from the Merry and Bright paper pad over this.

Next, I used another piece of the gorgeous foiled paper from the paper pad and I used a paper punch to create my doily of paper, with a decorative snowflake edge. I matted this in the centre of my card blank.

I used the die cut baubles from the Collectables pack and threaded seam binding through the little holes in the die cuts and then attached these to the front of my card. Finally, I took one of the messages from the pack and adhered this using 3D foam pads and added some adhesive pearls as accents.

So, I hope this has given you some inspiration to make some cards of your own using the Merry and Bright collection and I’ll look forward to reading all your comments about these card projects.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you again soon…

Love Emma xx
