No time for long rambles today … tomorrow is Alicia's birthday so I need to wrap some presents! Before I do that I wanted to share my last card for my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack coming up on the 16th. Check it out!
I love it … more or less … I keep moving between love it and "it just needs a little more". Whilst I DO like me some "white space" (or vanilla space in this case lol) it just looks a LITTLE too clean to me! I think I have to go down and revisit and embossing folder or Gorgeous Grunge splotches in a very subtle solar … just a HINT of something … we'll see.
Until then, let's review how to make the card, shall we?
I started with a Very Vanilla layer of 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" and used the Star of Light Thinlits to cut out the star.
Stampin' Up! makes Christmas card making super easy with this bundle (and you save 10% when you buy the bundle!) ...
For my card I just used the thinlits …
I then punched out the inside piece using our gold glimmer paper …
I popped the vanilla layer up on dimensionals on a Cherry Cobbler layer measuring 3 3/4" x 5".
Next up I stamped the sentiment from the Tin of Tags set ...
… punched it out with my 1 3/4" circle punch and then punched a 2" circle from the gold glimmer paper. To attach the two you need to use glue dots - other adhesives don't stick to the glitter very well!
I popped the sentiment up on dimensionals, added three gold sequins from the Sequin Trim roll and wa-low! A quick, easy, sparkly card :)
Wanna see the whole batch of SAS cards we'll be making? Here y go!
I've posted all of these cards over the last few weeks. Scroll down through my older posts if you want the deets on those.
Off I go to wrap some presents! Have yourself a stampy night!
