Christmas Cheer in Mint Macaron

Mint_macaron_christmas

I would not have thought of Mint Macaron as a Christmas Color until I saw this paper in the Frosted Floral paper pack. I added some twigs and leaves cut from the galvanized paper and vellum to complete the look of icy branches.

Card Base: Cut Mint Macaron 8 ½ X 11 paper in half width wise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.

Card Mat: Cut Galvanized Metallic paper 4 X 5 1/4

Card Front: Cut Frosted Floral paper 3 7/8 X 5 1/8

Adhere Frosted Floral paper to Galvanized mat. Attach these to card front.

Stamp sentiment with Macaron Mint ink on Whisper White paper. Cut with smaller of two frame die cuts to cut sentiment, use larger frame die cut to cut mat for sentiment of galvanized metallic paper.

Cut 4 leaves from vellum paper.

Cut 4 twigs from galvanized metallic paper.

Adhere 2 leaves and 2 twigs behind top of sentiment (I used tear & tape). Adhere 2 leaves and 2 twigs behind bottom of sentiment.

Adhere sentiment with leaves attach to galvanized mat with stampin dimensionals. Adhere sentiment piece to card front.
