The countdown is ON! It’s December 1st and Christmas is only 24 sleeps away! Whoa…I hope I’ve made enough Christmas cards! I best be getting those in the mail shortly!
Today’s card is one that I have been meaning to make for a while, but it just seems to keep getting put on the backburner. I got a swap from convention that was in all blues and was a 3 x 3 notecard, but it’s really the paper technique on the punched out image of the ornament that I wanted to try, not the layout. So on Sunday when I was relaxing I decided to try it out. I looked at this tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers for some direction, but I didn’t follow it really. I didn’t use the template or measure, I was in a ‘winging it’ kind of mood. I think it turned out pretty darn cute!
Stampin’ Up! Supplies:
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Tiny Tags
Punches: Ornament, Jewelry Tag
Paper: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Deck the Halls DSP
Embellishments: Antique Brads, Silver Cord, 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon
I hope you’ll try out this technique too. It’s a fabulous way to use up all those scraps!!!
