MFT & Friends: A Rainbow Christmas

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials56 Comments

Today I’m sharing a clean and simple Christmas card featuring a rainbow of wonderful in color and a very subtle tone on tone embossed background.

This card feature some of the brand new releases from My Favorite Things and I feel like the October release banner inspired the design of my card! I love the simple rainbow effect on this cool layering stamp called Merry Christmas Blend. There is also a coordinating die so you can cut out the sentiment.

I also used a fun 6 x 6 cling stamp called Ho Ho Ho Background. I stamped and embossed it on a piece of white cardstock to create the popped up panel. It’s hard to see in this photos just how shiny and fun the white on white embossed background stamp image is, but it’s a whole lotta hos!

Here is my video showing you how I created this card project:

    What a fun card! Love all your techniques, as always. I don’t see the rainbow glue holder linked. Where is it from? I must have one!

    I appreciate that MFT is donating to Stand Up For Kids with each purchase of the unique and creative stamp & die set of Merry Christmas Blend which is what you used on your card. In regard to your sample creation, the color combo is right on, and the HoHo background is so subtle that it’s genius.
