I've just made my first Christmas card this year and it uses our fun new Core'dinations Colorcore Card Stock. This is a new card stock that you can sand to reveal the inner core which is slightly lighter. I also used the new Holiday Frame embossing folder. Isn't it gorgous!
1) 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Very Vanilla CS folded in half to form your card base.
2) 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations CS placed inside Holiday Frame Embossing Folder and run through Big Shot. Sand raised areas. Use Dust Buddy to wipe away sanded dust. This is your card layer.
3) Take a short length of Linen Thread and fold in half. Tie a knot approximately 1-1/2 to 1-3/4" from the center fold. Trim ends close to knot.
4) Pierce a hole in the Embossed and sanded Cherry Cobbler layer (where you see the Glimmer Brad in the photo) and place an Old Olive Glimmer Brad into it. Loop the Linen Thread around the brad and adjust so that the knot hangs to the center of the card layer. Open prongs of brad to secure and glue knot end of thread into center of card layer.
5) Using Multi-Purpose Adhesive, adhere layer onto card front.
6) Using Old Olive ink, stamp the ornament onto Very Vanilla CS. Punch out using the Ornament Punch.
7) Using Old Olive ink, stamp sentiment onto Very Vanilla CS and trim as shown.
8) Draw around edges of punched ornament with 2-Way Glue and dip into Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Dot glue in selected spots of ornament and add glitter. Adhere over thread knot as shown using 2 Stampin' Dimensionals.
9) Draw around edges of sentiment tag and dip into Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Adhere to card using 3 Stampin' Dimensionals.
Here's a closer view so you can see the glittered areas better
