Well, we are down to the final week before Christmas! I had to give in and find a card I could make LOTS of in a short period of time in order to get mine into the mail with any hope of reaching everyone before the holiday. I found inspiration on Splitcoast stampers, and CASEd a card by Nancy Littrell. I made 84 in about 12 hours. Here's my quick & easy card:
Note: Finished card size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
|Real red (SU!)||4 1/4" x 11"; scored at 5 1/2"|
|Glorious green (SU!)||2 3/8" x 2 5/8"|
|Whisper white (SU!)||3 3/4" x 5", and|
2 1/4" x 2 1/2"
|Basic Black (SU!)|
|Holiday Tag Team (SU!)|
|Swiss Dots embossing folder (Provocraft)|
|Mark-it Ultra-fine Pens (BIC)|
|Gold metallic pen (Uni-ball)|
|Pearl adhesive dot (Recollections)|
|Ice Stickles (Ranger)|
|Twine (The Twinery)|
|Rotary Trimmer (Fiskars)|
Start with a half sheet (4 1/2" x 11") of red card stock, score in the middle at 5 1/2", and fold.
Cut a piece of white card stock measuring 3 3/4" x 5", and emboss it with the swiss dots folder. Tape one end of the twine on the back of the white mat, then wrap the twine around the card 3 times and tape it again on the back. Tie a bow around the narrow end of the twine on the front of the white mat. Mount this on the center of the front of the card.
Cut a piece of green paper measuring 2 3/8" x 2 5/8" and mount it to the left of the bow.
Use black ink to stamp the santa on a piece of white card stock measuring 2 1/4" x 2 1/2". Color with the BIC makers, and use the gold pen for the belt buckle. Mount this onto the green mat. Finish with a pearl adhesive on the tip of his cap, and use stickle on all the fur trim.
and REMEMBER - only one more week til Christmas!!!
