Canvas Corp Brands Countdown to Christmas - Tangled Greeting Card Set


Hi! The Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew is having a Countdown to Christmas card event this month. If you like to create your Christmas cards you won't want to miss these inspirational posts! I started this card set with 7 Gypsies Kraft and Canvas Stitched Greeting Cards to save time. I then added a pile of festive patterned papers and an embellished scallop tag. The Tattered Tangled Tags and Card Pack has a fantastic mix of zentagle style designs for a variety of holidays. These images are quick to color with Shimmers, and they gave my cards a jovial focal point that is perfect for celebrating the holiday season.


Supplies:
7 Gypsies 5x7 Kraft & Canvas Stitched Greeting Cards
7 Gypsies Mini Antique Brass Metal Keys
7 Gypsies Antique Silver Jump Rings
7 Gypsies Santa's Journey Charms
Tattered Angels Tattered Tangles Pack - Tags and Cards
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze - Waterfall
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Sherbert, Rum Punch
Tattered Angels Shimmers - Yellow-Green, Blue-Green, Red-Orange, Goldenrod
Canvas Corp White Scallop Tags and Ties
Canvas Corp Gold & White Star
Canvas Corp Red Patchwork on White
Canvas Corp Hunter Green & White Trees
Canvas Corp Hunter Patchwork on White
Canvas Corp Waxed Cotton Cord - White
Poinsettias
Paper Leaves - Gold, Green
Clear Sentiment Stickers


Step 1: Use Tattered Angels products to color two cards from the Tattered Tangles Tags and Cards Pack. I used blues and greens for one card and reds, pinks, and oranges for the other. Please refer to the above supply list for the colors.


Step 2: Cut, punch, and die-cut festive patterned papers from the Canvas Corp Holiday Miscellanies collection. Add a Mini Antique Brass Metal Key and one Santa's Journey Charm to a Silver Jump Ring. Attach the jump ring to the hole in a White Scallop Tag. Arrange the patterned papers and tags in a pleasing manner and staple them together.


Step 3: Glue each patterned paper stack to the front of a 7 Gypsies 5x7 Kraft & Canvas Stitched Greeting Card.



Step 4: Embellish each card with flowers, leaves, a white cotton cord bow, and a clear sentiment sticker.

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial! I like to use a mix of supplies to create a look I like. I try to purchase neutral products and variety packs that I can use all year long, and adding seasonal colors to design for specific holidays. I really love the way 7 Gypsies, Tattered Angels, and Canvas Corp products work so well together.
