"DIY: How to Make a Navy and Gold Leaves Christmas Card for the Christmas in July Series"


Thank you so much for joining me for this "DIY: How to Make a Navy and Gold Leaves Christmas Card for the Christmas in July Series", Let's jump right in.


I started by trimming down my cardstock, I used an A2 base, which is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4, and trimmed my black cardstock matte to be 1/8th of an inch smaller than the base, and my Navy panel to be 1/4 of an inch smaller than my A2 base. To create the darker colour around the edge I blended on some Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distress oxide ink, creating a stunning halo of colour.


Next, I Gold heat embossed some leaves coming in from the edges of the card and also added some more leaves over top of the gold ones once I had heat set them for a fun layered look. For a bit of added interest I splattered some Uncharted Mariner Spritz on top of the card panel for some extra shimmer and shine. For the sentiment I die-cut three layers of white cardstock and one layer of gold cardstock so that it would have more visual weight. I added the sentiment to the centre of the card panel and adhered the layers on to the card base with a mix of liquid glue and foam tape. For a final touch I added a few Stargazer Jewels acorss the panel and call this card done.
