The third project of my 2022 Christmas In July Series uses the Lights Aglow Suite. This Suite is amazing and is made up of two stamp and die sets: Christmas Lights Bundle and Brightest Glow Bundle. The suite includes Glimmer Paper, Festive Foils and Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Paper! The Specialty Paper is gorgeous donning my favorite colors: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent. Each sheet has gold incorporated throughout.
Today’s card uses the Christmas tree stamp from the Christmas Lights Bundle. I chose to stamp with Versamark Ink on Evening Evergreen and heat emboss using Gold Embossing Powder. I used Soft Succulent Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper for the background. As a focal point, I used the rectangular die from Labels Aglow with gold foil across the center of the card. I chose not to have an external sentiment so as not to detract from the design.
Ready to get started? The video, below, demonstrates how to make the card with tips for heat embossing and die cutting foil. Additionally, the measurements, instructions and supply list can be found further down in the post. I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment below as to which card you like, better!
