It's time for me to skidaddle on getting my Christmas cards rolling. I have planned a blitz of holiday cards and ideas to share over the next week (and beyond–always with a chance of a few diversions). Stay tuned.
Perfect for mass production–Stampin' Up!'s Rub-Ons (TIP: Nov. 10-30, you can order SU's Rub-Ons on-line at 20% off with a $20 purchase) and felt snowflakes. They helped today's card leap into my Stamping 911 category (cards you can make in 10 minutes or less). Click here for more Stamping 911 ideas.
I layered Whisper White Little Felt Flurries (Item #113697, also includes Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze) on 1 1/4" punches of Textured Riding Hood Red card stock, following by a Scallop Square of Baja Breeze. TIP: The top snowflake was calling for a tidtad of extra attention, so a Ruby Red Button and a sliver of Old Olive card stock (as thread) were added.
The 4.25 x 5.5 card base of Baja Breeze is topped with a delightful pattern from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Treasures Designer Series paper (bottom) and Riding Hood Red Textured card stock at the top. I layered a crisp, white Season of Cheer Rub-On (112843, includes one sheet each of Whisper White and Chocolate Chip) on the top corner.
This quick and easy card was wrapped up with a luscious piece of Stampin' Up!'s 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon. TIP: I used the rotary cutter from the Cutter Kit (Item #106958) to cut a small slice on the left side to neatly slip the ribbon through and wrap around the entire card front. The sketch was inspired by Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 200.
