A Birdie Christmas Border

Jean-Okimoto-Memory-Box-Script-Merry-Frosted-Spruce-Tree-Resting Birds

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas after the heavy rains last night!  Jean Okimoto here, with another holiday card this afternoon.  The lights have been flickering – so let’s get started before anything happens…

Memory Box Products

  • NEW Script Merry Designer Stencil 88575
  • NEW Frosted Spruce Tree Die 99005
  • Resting Birds Die 98527
  • Hearts and Stars Die 98755
  • Parchment Cardstock
  • Parchment Envelope 

Dry-emboss Script Merry on Parchment Cardstock and trim it to 3-3/4” x 3-5/8”.

Cut Frosted Spruce Tree from Lime Fizz Silk Cardstock.  Leave the cardstock in the die and dry-emboss it for extra dimension. 

Cut the star from gold mirror cardstock.  Attach adhesive label paper to red felt and diecut Resting Birds and a 1” x 3-5/8” strip.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and prevents any liquid adhesives from seeping through. 

Attach everything to a side-folded A-2 card – and coordinate it with a matching Parchment Envelope.

I love simple designs like this.  Let the textures and combination of dry-embossing, mirror cardstock, felt and silk cardstock do the work for you!

Impress is having their annual Holiday Kick-Off on Saturday August 16th.  There'll be goodie bags for the first 25 customers at both stores, make and takes and a special 10% off everything discount that day.  Be there!

Scroll down for a quick holiday card featuring the new Merry Background - a very popular stamp this year!

Thanks for stopping by again – have a great evening.








Très belle carte! Bises

Jean, love this card, elegant, yet cute xxx

Your card is so beautiful. You always do such a magnificent job.

Thank you - wish you could see the real thing - embossing the silk cardstock creates a very shimmery tree!
