Sarah is back with a beautiful Christmas card!
Hello again and Happy Thanksgiving!!
There are only a few days left to accomplish all we need to get done prior to sitting down at the table to give thanks - and to stuff ourselves full of all the special foods we take so much time to prepare! So I decided this would be the perfect time to make a Christmas card. Better yet - a fairly simple and easy one, so as to save precious time that we all seem to need more of this time of year!
I started out with a 5 3/4"x12" piece of textured green card stock, and folded it in half so that it is a tad taller (6") than wide (5 3/4"). I layered a red piece of card stock on top of the green, followed by a layer of brushed gold card stock. I wrapped a piece of green satin ribbon around the top two layers in the middle. Then I cut out my beautiful "wreath" using the awesome English Tea Party doily die from Cheery Lynn Designs. This was my first time using this die, and I just fell in love with it! The detail in it is amazing- and it cut out so beautifully!
I then added a circle of caramel colored card stock in the center to put my floral sticker on, and then just added a circle of Nestabling Petite Scalloped Circle gold rhinestones for bling! You just peel the whole circle off and stick it down - so quick and easy without having to try to space each rhinestone evenly. I just love all the Nestabling rhinestones and pearls!
For my sentiment I used the Spellbinders Fancy Tags dies and stamped onto an oval piece of gold card stock in black ink. And for a couple of little finishing touches I tied a bow using the Bow Easy tool (so great!) to add to the top of the wreath, and put a few little dew drops in two corners.
So now that I have my first Christmas card done - and it was so quick and easy - I am feeling a bit better about all that I have ahead of me yet to accomplish ;-)
