Christmas Wishes

Hi Everyone and welcome back!!

I thought I'd share with you a Christmas card that is fun to make and really makes a statement.

The die cut tree is attached to give a 3-D look. Cut 3 trees. Score down the center on all trees and fold. Using Glossy Accents, attach the underside of right side of 1st tree to the underside of left side of 2nd tree. Attach the underside of right side of 2nd tree to the underside of the left side of the 3rd tree. Attach the underside of the left side of tree and the underside of the right side of tree on top of the white lattice.(I sure hope this description make sense)

Now your tree has a 3-d effect.

Well I know I don't need to remind you, Halloween will be here Friday and that means Christmas is going to be here before we all know it. (I know you don't want to hear that. LOL) You know that holiday sneaks up on all of us, every year!! Are you getting ready?? Have you started on your cards??

OK get ready for the kids and their begging. See you soon

Wishing on a Star

Hello Everyone,

Hope your week is going well. I am finishing up on a class I am giving this Saturday at Simply Said Rubber Stamps in Loveland Ohio.

This card is one from a prior class and uses the die set from My Favorite Things DieNamics Blueprints sets. Those sets are a wonderful tool to have on hand since they have so many dies in each set. You have a lot of designs that can be made from each set and if you own a few sets the designs really become endless.

Todays card uses set # 4. 

I used glitter paper for the big stars. The center stars were made using an EK Success border punch and I added glitter to the stars panel  to follow that theme. I used those punched out stars over to the side on the card to balance it out.
