I've managed to make a few Christmas cards so that my special box for them doesn't sit there looking empty and forgotten. Here's one that I really like, and it was actually pretty quick to make.
I used a Cottage Cutz Petites die called "Bells." I cut my bells from some shiny, textured gold cardstock and backed them with a matte-finish gold cardstock. I also cut the ribbon portion of the die from some red CS and layered it over the top of the gold.
I coated my ribbon with some Wink of Stella clear glitter and put a little red gem where the knot would be. The little pine branches behind my bells were made with a Martha Stewart punch
My sentiment is from Jilli Bean Soup. After stamping it in Versamark, I carefully poured red embossing powder over the word "Joy" and some green powder over the rest. I just had to be really careful, but as you can see - it worked!
I'm planning on making some more of these cards - at least 10 of them. I really like the bright colors, the little gold bells and the two-toned sentiment. They'll also go through the mail with no extra postage.
On Monday I start a Tai Chi class, and I'm really looking forward to it. I'll let you know how I like it in my next post.
I hope you are having a great weekend, filled with moments of joy. If you were in the path of that awful winter storm, I hope you have stayed safe and warm.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
