I hate to scare you but Christmas is
less then 20 weeks away, just over 130 days!
Stampin’ Up! Have the Holiday Catalogue releasing at
the end of August and this has helped push me into the
Christmas mood and I am starting my Christmas cardmaking.
Demonstrators have had the opportunity to prepared
from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue,
see that fabulous greeting “Very Merry Christmas to you”
its a little sneak peak to one of the coming Christmas sets.
I case’d a card I posted earlier this week to create this card,
I knew it was a fast card to create and looks good also.
I think I am going through a “simple” faze at the moment.
The other thing about this card is, I used a stamp set that
is a non Christmas set, called Choose happiness
As you can see, a great stamp set!
And I have used the leaf and boarder images.
Above you can see the inside design of the card.
I love to share what I create, and I am found of giving
a set of handmade cards as a gift, all gifts need to look pretty!
I have taken the Tag A Bag Gift Box and cut down the center
of acetate sleeve and applied Sticky Strip.
Then attached it to the inside wall of the box, now the acetate acts as
a cover to my cards. To open and access the cards, I have not applied adhesive
the acetate at the back, it is simply slipped between the ribbon and box wall.
The Berries on the card fronts look really effective
Now we have Blendabilities, you can use these markers
to colour over own white pearls and in this case
I now have Cherry Cobbler Pearls.
