I recently was invited into a chat group of SplitcoastStampers demonstrators and have had a wonderful time getting to know these women better. Recently we gathered at Lela's house to meet and spend the day stamping and sharing what we love. It was so much fun! We each brought a shoebox swap and this was my card from that swap. I loved it so much that we also made this card at my recent Christmas card class. Again, thank you Scan N Cut for the beautifully cut Santa, tree and reindeer!
This card was inspired by one made by Carol Payne. I thought it was a beautiful way to showcase the poinsettias made with the Festive Flower punch. In my October 12 blog post, you can watch a video on how to assemble this flower. Super quick and easy. I have seen some done with quite a few more petals to the flower so have fun building these.
This card was inspired by one that my upline Stella MacKay shared with me that was the snowflakes on white paper. I thought it would be perfect to sparkle it up using the Silver Glimmer paper and the Silver Foil. The back of the card is the standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and the Z folded Silver glimmer paper is 12" x 5" at the top and 1" at the bottom. You can get 4 of these from one sheet of 12"x12" paper. Just cut it to 6"x12". Then cut the 6" side at 5" angling down to 1" at the other end. You will end up with two cut identically. Before you cut them, you can score them at 4" and 8" to make the Z fold. The back side of the center of the Z fold is visible from the front and that is where I put the Silver foil.
Here is the inside of the card.
This is the back of the card. I added this white piece to the back so you have someplace to sign it.
This card was CASE'd from Kimberly Van Diepen. I thought it was so cute and had to make my own. I added the striped embossing, the gold striped vellum and the little enamel dots. I think it turned out really nice.
