FAB Stampers Festive Foliage
For today’s FAB Stampers project, I’ve chosen a card that is quick and easy to make. I’ll be using the Festive Foliage background stamp. If you need a lot of holiday cards, this is a perfect one to mass produce.
It also requires very few supplies – one ink color, two colors of cardstock (in addition to your white card base), circle dies and ribbon.
Festive Foliage and Christmas to Remember
I’ve used the Festive Foliage background stamp in Evening Evergreen on a Soft Succulent panel (3 3/4″ x 5″). These two colors are FABulous together! And, the Stamparatus is the BOMB for stamping backgrounds.
The Soft Succulent Panel is layered onto a Real Red panel (4″ x 5 1/4″) and then onto a Basic White card base (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, folded in half). Before you add that Real Red panel, be sure to read my paper saving tip in the Details below!
I stamped the greeting from Christmas To Remember in Evening Evergreen, and cut it out with one of the smooth dies from the Layering Circles Dies.
Before I added the red panel to the card, I cut a scalloped circle from the center (slightly larger than my white circle greeting) using the same Layering Circles Dies. As long as you stay at least 1/4″ away from the edges of the panel, you’ll cover up the hole when you add the Soft Succulent panel on top. This is a great paper saving tip and NO ONE will ever know!!
Next, I layered the white circle onto the scalloped Real Red circle, and added Dimensionals to the back. I folded an 8″ piece of the Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon and attached it to the card using glue dots. I added the layered greeting on top of the ribbon.
Of course, no project is complete without a little bling, so I had to add a few of the Red Rhinestones to finish this card.
I kept the inside of the card simple, adding another sentiment from the Christmas to Remember set, and stamping just the corner of the Festive Foliage in the bottom right corner.
