Oh my!! So, I just closed my eyes and pick one and figured I would just make it work. Surprise, I worked and I have 3 beautiful card for my co-workers. But before we launch into the cards, some housekeeping: You should have arrived here from Jennifer. You can also Click Here to start at the beginning.
For the last challenge of 2016, I’m choosing the ACE of HEARTS this month. I used Idea Deck 5
I decided to make all the card and then figure out how to add the embellishments and sentiments.
I started by glueing mats down and adding ribbon. I mention this as I always forget the ribbon and end up trying to stuff my ribbon under the already glued mat, Geez,
I used a glass cutting mat.
Ok 3 card bases done. Now what!!! Turned off the lights, that was enough thinking for one day. Over the next few days I contemplated those blank cards, what to do. Well I need Christmas Cards for the nursing staff, there are 3 of them, so perfect, Christmas Cards they will be.
One of the Ma's is cold all the time. I know which one for her!!
Jenny and I had a conversation, not too long about this very topic!!! Perfect, she will smile remembering my conversation about "grow your own Sweater!!, advise to Cheri ,who is cold all the time!!.
This simple embellishment and the snowflakes balance out the card, giving the sentiment center stage.
Well it is boring, but more of a classic Christmas Card. This one is for the new addition to our team. Don't want to push over the edge with my humor, so safe is best, and it elegant.
The sentiment is from Watercolour Christmas, 2015 (CS)
The stamp is in this format. It would have worked if I had made it a top folding card. Which I could have done, but the ribbon was in the wrong place. Oh what to do?
Cut up the Stamp!!!
This is how I spaced it. First cut the stamp apart, used a plastic grid sheet to get my placement right, stamped in VersaMark, embossed in silver, die cut it and a mat. Popped up on dimensional tape. A few snowflakes balance out the design, Finished!!
