One last Christmas card to share... for now!

Share |


I'll share one more card from my Holiday cards class this week before we move on to new things... how does that sound?

I knew even before I started this card that I wanted to incorporate the new Jolly Holiday designer paper in it.

The colour combination I'd be working with was Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla, with the lighter Pear Pizzazz as an added colour.

The card size isn't your usual 1/4 sheet folded card...instead, it's a 6 1/4 x 3 1/4" long card, which fits perfectly in our Open End envelopes.

Now, I've always loved using sponge daubers and a punch "mask" to create fun shapes and images. It's one of those easy techniques to use if you don't have a stamp in the shape you want!

In this particular instance, I first stamped a snowflake from the Snow Swirled set in Cherry Cobbler ink at the bottom of the Very Vanilla cardstock piece.

I then overlayed the mask I had made using the Ornament Punch, and gently sponged into the shape some Pear Pizzazz ink. Pierce 2 holes around the "neck" of the ornament, tie off some silver cord and then add a small Rhinestone Jewel in the middle -- all done!
