Oh no! Christmas is only three months away from today!
Have you started making your Christmas cards yet? Cards will need to be mailed in about eight or nine weeks. Now, is the time to start spending a few hours a week making your cards.
When you decide to make your cards, choose something simple and fast to reproduce. Here is one that I plan on making.
You can make ten or more of these in a couple of hours.
Materials: Natural White card, Real Red 5 1/4 x 4", Shimmery White cardstock, 5 x 3 3/4", red glitter paper, Star Framelit, using smallest star, gold embossing powder, Versa Mark, one rhinestone, new gold ribbon
1. Using the smallest start star in the Framelits, cut out the star on the shimmery white cardstock.
2. Cut a 1x1 inch piece of red glitter cardstock to cover the star cut out.
3. Emboss the greeting by stamping it with Versa Mark and using gold embossing powder. Brush off any specks of stray embossing powder and then heat with the heat tool.
4. Adhere the glitter paper under the star using sticky tape.
5. Add the ribbon from the star to the top of the white cardstock and secure on back with tape. Uses a glue dot above the star to attach. Tie the bow and add this to the top of the star.
6. Color the rhinestone with real red Blendabilities or Sharpie markers and add on the greeting.
7. Adnere the finished white to the Real Red using pop-dots.
8. Glue the red to the card front.
I suggest you stamp your verse inside the card before adding the stamped image to the front. If you make a mistake on stamping the inside, you can always turn the card inside-out and cover the mistake with your stamped card.
All of the materials used to make this card are in the Fall Mini and the 2014-2015 Stampin'Up@ catalog. You can place your order at www.stampersjoy.stampinup.net
