North Coast Creations Sept Release!

Julie Warner –

Welcome to the North Coast Creations September Release!

On this card, after stamping and coloring Santa, I die cut him and attached him to a strip of designer paper. I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting repeatedly down the sides of two white strips I attached before adding some die cut fancy ornament shapes. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Paper: Neenah white, red, dp (Basic Grey- Jovial)

Julie Warner –

 For this card, I also colored it w/ Copics and die cut it and the forest green layer behind it. The large white panel was dry embossed before attaching to another forest green layer. The sentiment was die cut using the ODBD Recipe & Tag dies set and the forest green behind it was die cut with one of the ODBD Fancy Ornament dies. Some baker’s twine and a little stickles was added to the 5.50 x 4.25 card.
