A Merry Little Christmas Card with Avery Elle

Avery Elle Merry Little Christmas Card

Happy Saturday! How cute are the critters in this Avery Elle stamp and die set called A Merry Little Christmas?  I couldn’t wait to make a card with it.  I stamped all the animals onto Neenah Solar White Cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I then colored them with Arteza Real Brush Markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies.  You could also use colored pencils or Copic markers for this simple coloring.

I used a sheet of snowflake pattern paper from the Doodlebug Design – Sugarplums Collection – Christmas – 6 x 6 Paper Pad for the background.  There are 24 sheets of paper, two solids (green and red) and 22 patterns.  So many options!  I also used the dainty Hero Arts – Season of Wonder Collection – Fancy Dies – Snowflake Edge die.  I glued the snowflakes to the pattern paper and then trimmed off the solid part of the diecut.  I then glued the paper to a white card base.

For the garlands and the bows, I used Gold Wink of Stella.  It provides a little shimmer that you cannot appreciate in the pictures.  I also used a white gel pen to add a few highlights.

A had a half inch strip of paper and an extra gift box left over, so I added them to the inside of the card.

I look forward to making more cards and some tags with this combo.  I hope your Christmas cardmaking is going well.  Thanks for stopping by!
