Card number two in my Holiday Card Class series with Cheryl LeFore, once again features the Santa's List Stamp Set.
This card was quick and easy to assemble and the finished card is perfect for mailing because of its light weight and flat surface.
Stamps: Santa's List #131808 wood mount or #131811 clear mount
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Early Espresso
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Designer Paper: Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack #132181
Accessories: Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder #132174, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, 2-way glue pen, Adhesive Dimensionals, Big Shot machine, Trimmer, Stamp-a-ma-jig.
Here is the finished card:
1. Cut an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" piece of Early Espresso card stock and score at 4 1/4" for side fold card.
2. Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock to 4 x 5 1/4" and emboss with the Stripes Embossing folder in the Big Shot machine. Adhere this piece with adhesive to the card base.
|Stripes Embossing Folder measures 6-1/4" x 4-1/2". Use with Standard Cutting Pads.|
4. Cut a piece of Early Espresso to measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2".
5. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 3 1/4 by 3 1/4" and stamp the Santa from Santa's list in Cherry Cobbler ink. Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig position the sentiment "He's making a list...." beneath the Santa and stamp it in Early Espresso Ink.
|This is the perfect tool to keep you from ever ruining a whole project with one crooked image! The stamp positioner gives you the ability to place an image exactly where you want it, every time. Allows for fast and precise stamp placement.|
|My card was already finished when I decided it just need some additional "ta da", so I hauled out my glitter and glue pen and went to work.|
|Hope you can see the light coating of glitter in Santa's suit and hat. Remember, just add a light dusting, you don't want to have globs of glitter, it will only rub off in the envelope.|
|Dazzling Diamonds is an ultrafine polyester glitter. It comes in a 1/2 oz. jar. Use with Heat & Stick powder, Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive, or Sticky Cuts Letters|
Voila, that's it!
