Hello and welcome! Today I am sharing the cards I am making at this week’s Coffee & Cards live using the Playful Alphabet Dies. I really wanted to make a couple of white-on-white Christmas cards so I pulled out the beautiful Wintry Embossing Folders to pair with them.
See the replay of this week’s Coffee & Cards live here on YouTube. You can see exactly how the cards are made, some great tips for lining up the alphabet, and the best adhesive to use too! I hope you enjoy it. Do give me a thumbs up and subscribe if you do. It really helps get videos suggested to those who might like them which helps me too!
Cards With The Playful Alphabet Dies
The 3D Wintry Embossing Folders come in a two-pack. Pine boughs and snowflakes. They leave such beautiful embossed images. Using the PlayfulAlphabet means you can put anything you like on the front of your card. Personalised birthday cards are always a winner. Apply some Clear Wink Of Stella to the letters to give a subtle sparkle. So pretty, although it doesn’t really show up in the photograph. Add a few rhinestone gems and some White Bakers Twine to complete the card.
Another tip for you – use the embossing folder on the flap of your envelope too, to make it extra special!
Use some stamps from your stash to stamp your sentiment inside. The Sparkle Of The Season stamp set has some fir boughs and some great Christmas sentiments.
The snowflake embossing folder in the pack is gorgeous too! Add a die-cut snowflake from the Merry Snowflakes dies to dress it up even more. Pop the rhinestone gems in the centre of the embossed snowflakes – so simple and pretty!
Perhaps you can see the shimmer of the Wink Of Stella on the letters a little better in this photograph.
