Now, she's probably unaware that Christmas is but a fortnight away. So, to help her out a bit (and because I know she will not get around to her Christmas cards before the end of the year), I made her a dozen cards. There are 3 designs, 4 cards each. That should keep her busy tomorrow.
I've used the same patterned papers for all three designs, but played around with the shapes and embellishments. They were fairly easy and did not take long to finish.
|The card measures 3.5"x3.5". The candy cane is from Spellbinder's Holiday Cheer Shapeabilities, which I cut and embossed. Since its Christmas, I threw some red gemstones on all 4 corners!|
|I stencilled the candy cane using Versacolor Scarlet and Sage, then applied some Red and Crystal Stickles. The greeting is heat embossed using Stampendous white embossing powder.|
|I stencilled Santa's hat with Versacolor Scarlet and applied Frosted Lace Stickles to the trim for texture. The greeting is stamped using Versacolor Scarlet .|
|For extra shine I slapped on some Diamond Stickles to the centre of each snowflake. The greeting is stamped with Versacolor Silver and cut using Nellie Snellen's Multiframe Dies MFD011.|
