As you can see, I went with the traditional Christmas colors of red and green, with a touch of gold. The card base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock, with a layer of the Holiday Foil Vellum (attached with glue dots under the trees so you can't see them!). I die cut a circle from Red Glimmer Paper using the Circles Framelits, then cut it in half and added the "Joy" die cut from Gold Foil Paper. The "Joy" is also adhered with glue dots, and the glimmer paper is adhered using Tear & Tape. Another quick and easy card! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day! --Cindi
As you can see, it's a pretty simple sketch, so I tried to stay true to that. Here's my card:
I'm not sure what happened to the color in this photo - the others I took at the same time are much more true -- but you can get the idea. The card was created with just two colors, Whisper White and Pacific Point. The Whisper White layer was stamped with the star from You're So Sweet, and the die cut is the star from the Mini Treat Bag framelits set. I backed it with a piece of the Brights Backgrounds Designer Series Paper, and added the Pacific Point stitched satin ribbon to hold the tag. A very quick and easy card! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day! --Cindi
Hello and welcome back! It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted, and now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to get working on some Christmas cards. Today's card is a combo for the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the remix challenge at TGIF.
So here is my card:
I created this card on a base of Whisper White Thick Cardstock, layered it with Soft Sky, then a Whisper White layer embossed with the "vintage" Snow Burst embossing folder. The snowflake is stamped on Soft Sky with Soft Sky ink and punched out with the Flower Medallion punch. The sentiment is stamped on Soft Sky with Pool Party ink. For some added interest and bling, there is some silver sequin trim, a small silver metallic doily, and a large rhinestone jewel (from my stash of retired products).
Here's a better view of the doily under the snowflake. This card went together very quickly and would be easy to replicate in batches. Maybe it will be one of the cards I send out this year. Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day! --Cindi P.S. - I've also entered this card into the Tic Tac Toe challenge at The Paper Players this week. Can you tell which way I was able to make the tic tac toe?
