Thinking Christmas with the Lights Aglow Suite Collection


Thinking Christmas with Lights Aglow.

Can there be the perfect paper for making your Christmas cards this year? In my opinion, it’s the Lights Aglow 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper from the July to December Mini Catalogue.

The colours featured in this paper are perfect for Christmas and beyond – Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Very Vanilla, Basic Black and Gold. And the designs feature the perfect blend of shapes, tiny patterns, gold accents, bokeh and more.

I paired the paper with the Brightest Glow Bundle for these cards. Included in the bundle is the Brightest Glow stamp set with all the seasonal greetings you will need and the Labels Aglow Dies with lots of fabulous twinkling “lights” that allow the underlying paper or cardstock to peek through.



There are four sheets of frames in Soft Succulent and four sheets in Cherry Cobbler that can be quartered to quickly make 32 cards. Just cut the 6″ x 6″ sheets down to 3″ x 3″ for each card.



Both of these cards follow the same layout with slightly different elements to finish the card. This card is embossed with the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder. I heat embossed “joy” with gold embossing powder on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it out with the round die. Before adhering the circle to the card with Dimensionals, I added a length of gold trim from the Simply Elegant Trim pack. A row of Festive Pearls at the edge of the card and one by the greeting finish the card.

  • Cherry Cobbler – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ folded in half for the card base, 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Gold Foil – 4″ x 5-1/4″, 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Lights Aglow DSP – 3″ x 3″
  • Very Vanilla – scrap for the die cut greeting



For this card, the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder was used. I heat embossed “all is merry and bright” onto a square of Very Vanilla cardstock for the center and added it with Dimensionals. A few Festive Pearls were added around the greeting.

  • Soft Succulent – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ folded in half for the card base, 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Gold Foil – 4″ x 5-1/4″, 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Lights Aglow DSP – 3″ x 3″
  • Very Vanilla – scrap cut to 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″
