Holly Jolly Christmas using Creative Escape Papercrafting Christmas Kit fully loaded

OK I am sharing the details on this card today that I used just the tree die with small amounts of kit paper and some cardstock. I am still using the Christmas Kit fully loaded from Creative Escape Papercrafting. Each card is different and I have been doing individual blog posts sharing the how to info so you can make them too. Be sure to visit daily when I do another one.

For this card I thought it would be fun to play with the Kaisercraft die and some of the fun print papers from this collection. Add some depth and dimension with matting and the pop of colour.

The Fully Loaded Christmas
Kit lives up to its name.  It starts with a set of 6 stamps with 4
matching dies.  There are 18 sheets of 6.5″ x 6.5″ specialty paper (some
of which are foiled).  It comes with a full 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of acetate and
0.5 oz of Lawn Fawn chunky glitter – a perfect combination for shaker
cards!  There’s also a bottle of Liquid Mercury Nuvo drops and a bunch of
other goodies to give you an abundance of card making options.
The kit includes:
1 “Traditional Christmas” stamp/die set from Kaisercraft

1 0.5 oz jar of Lawn Fawn chunky glitter

1 Bottle of Nuvo Liquid Mercury Crystal Drops (1 fl oz)

18 Sheets of 6.5″ x 6.5″ specialty paper from the Kaisercraft “Frosted” collection

1 12″ x 12″ cut apart sheet from the Kaisercraft “Frosted” collection

1 Bottle of Ranger Glossy Accents (0.5 fl oz)

1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ acetate

3 Sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ white card stock

1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ light gray card stock

1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ navy blue card stock

1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ powder blue card stock

1 Sequins mix featuring Studio Katia (approx. 1.5 tsp)

1 Snowflake/gem mix featuring Studia Katia gems

1.5 yards of purple sheer ribbon

1.5 yards of blue sheer ribbon

1.5 yards of silver/gray ribbon

1.5 yards of gold twine
40 Blue 3 mm adhesive gems
24 Clear 6 mm adhesive gems
9 mini wooden embellishments

1 assorted ephemera pack (contents may vary)

 *Note:      12″ x 12″ sheet is cut into separate pieces for shipment


To start this card I pulled together all the pieces starting with the fabulous fun  prints... I chose the sentiment Wishing you a Holly Jolly Christmas and also the great black n white print. Using the general size of the card base I estimated the part of the print that would fit my needs the best.

Following the above photo you can see the fussy cut section of the print and the sentiment blog. I inked the edges on the print and for the Sentiment I matted a few times to add more colour.

Using just the tree die cut I used black cardstock for a contrasting colour to showcase the tree image.

In this section you can see the matted border. All the inking and gold glitter cardstock looked perfect with the muted papers I chose. The tree was placed in the background and I am pleased with the finished card design.
This is one of the simpler cards but it looks awesome.... not every card has to be difficult.

Thanks for stopping by... be sure to visit often when I have so much more to share.
