Christmas cards '09 - 1

The next 5 days you will see what we created in the October card class. These were some of the easiest cards I've ever made but are very lovely! I hope you enjoy them.

I somewhat 'lifted' this idea from a fellow angel. It is very difficult to see the dimension of the card via a photo but wow!

The base is made with the monochromatic v-47 greens. The dots are ta-3209 build a background stamped with s-1179 versamark. Jingle all the way stamped in tt-210 chartreuse palette ink is adhered to the hot pink card stock. The tree is stamped in the same ink. Then, stickles were added for the ornaments. The saying and tree come from r-3037 holiday cheer. The ribbon and bell were adhered to the white card stock then mounted onto the hot pick with pop dots. The pink was then mounted onto the base with zots that lifted the pink just a bit.

I wouldn't recommend trying to mail this card due to the bell. You'll definitely have to pay extra for postage if you do. I'm afraid that it may not make it through the postal system.

Hope your Friday was fantastic!
