It's great to be able to share with you a sneak peek at the Curvy Celebration products, which Demonstrators can pre-order from 1 October-2 November, with customer ordering opening after that.
The Curvy Celebrations promotion features two early-release products from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue, plus two exclusive products available for a limited time only. This promotion offers customers a first glance at the look and feel of the new catalogue, a chance to purchase early and some exclusive products perfect for Christmas crafting.
Today, I'm sharing with you a Christmas card utilising the limited time Curvy Christmas stamp set and Classic Christmas DSP along with the Curvy dies.
Unlike many stamp sets that feature a large focal image, Curvy Christmas is an eclectic selection of small Christmas motifs and sentiments, some of which match the curve of the dies. It lends itself to collage and repeat stamping.
For this card, I started by repeat stamping the 'Merry Christmas' in Sahara Sand in a left to right diagonal across the Whisper White panel. I added in some of the stars (there are two sizes in the set) in Cherry Cobbler.
I like the colours in the Classic Christmas DSP: Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce. One side of each of the 15cmx15cm pieces is a subtle Christmas theme (like the stars) but the other side is more generic (such as the dots) which extends the life of this paper stack well beyond the Christmas season. I cut three narrow curved strips, using one of the Curvy dies and stacked them. I like the sense of movement the curves create and I thought the eyelet edge was adorable.
I cut a star from Stitched Stars using Brushed Gold foil, popped it on dimensionals and added in some foliage from the Curvy dies in Shaded Spruce and a touch of Brushed Gold foil. I gold-embossed the same 'Merry Christmas' stamp onto Cherry Cobbler and trimmed it into two words and popped it up on mini-dimensionals.
The finishing touch was a gold bow, using the gold cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon combo pack.
This card is easily achievable by all levels of crafter. There are die-cuts aplenty to keep the most avid crafter happy but the design is easily achievable by a beginner with access to the necessary equipment.
As a Demonstrator, you get early access to the Curvy Celebrations products from 1 October-2 November. Customer ordering begins on 3 November.
