The weather is warming up here and it is Summer this week. I thought it’s time to share some Beachy Little Christmas cards for you that I have been making over the last few weeks.
Here is the first one. I think this is my favourite one.
I heat embossed the shells and the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder on to Thick Whisper White card base. The shell sentiment is from the Beachy Little Christmas set and the “Merry Christmas” is from Star of Light set. The white squares are cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then I cut gold squares from the Layering Squares Framelits.
I wrapped around some Gold Thread before layering it on white card layered on a Gold Foil Sheet mat. I think the gold makes it classy.

I realised I hadn’t posted these cards yet. They have been sitting in my drafts folder for weeks! Oops! Now you can get to see them. 🙂
I didn’t get this set, Star of Light at first when the Holiday catalogue came out. I wasn’t sure about it and after all I still had the star framelits from the Annual Catalogue. I got to play with this set at our stamping weekend, and well … I kinda liked it. I may have this set now. 😉
This is the first card I made.
The “swirly” star pattern is heat embossed in Copper. The sentiments and small stars are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I cut one of the larger stars in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the smaller one is cut from Copper Foil sheet with the matching Starlight Thinlits. A pearl is added for some glam.
This is quite a simple card really but makes and impact I think.
For the next card the layout is based on the Freshly Made Sketches #217.
The base card is Real Red and the paper is from the Candy Cane Lane DSP pack. I heat embossed the “dots’ in gold on white card. There are so many star shapes in this Thinlits pack to give you so many options. (You can see them down below). I cut a large one in Real Red and the more detailed on in Gold Foil. Before I added it to the card front I looped around some Gold thread.
The sentiment is heat embossed in Gold onto vellum. Just be gentle when heat embossing the vellum. 🙂
Here is the set and the Thinlits if you haven’t noticed them yet. What combinations can you make?? Can you see the sentiments in the set too? They are really lovely. With these gorgeous sentiments and the varying shaped Thinlits, it doesn’t take much to make quick fancy cards with them.
They are available for $84.50 as a bundle in my store HERE. So why not go and grab them.
Don’t forget with a minimum order of $55 you will receive the limited edition Pop Up Scrap Bin for Free from me as a Thank you!
See you soon,
