One Week To Go!

So we are now just one week from Christmas, and I will share with you the rest of my Christmas cards.

Today's card is one we made in our Card Club for December.  Although a very simple card, it got lots of oohs and aahs, and everyone was thrilled with their results.  Take a look:

The card base is Whisper White Thick cardstock, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and folded in half.  We added a thin layer of Real Red (5-3/8" x 4-1/8").  Our top layer of Whisper White (5-1/4" x 4") took a trip through the Big Shot with the beautiful Holly embossing folder.  If you haven't tried this one, you NEED to--the texture it adds to your cards is absolutely gorgeous!

This beautiful little tag is one of my favorite items from the Holiday catalog - Merry Tags Framelits Dies.  And right now these are on sale for 50% off!  Don't miss it; they'll retire in January and won't be available again, so get yours now.

We cut the tag with more of the Thick Whisper White cardstock.  Then we all learned how to use the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to properly position the matching sentiment from Merriest Wishes--sheer perfection!

Our tag was backed with a circle of Red Glimmer Paper; Real Red Stitched Satin Ribbon was threaded through the tag and tied with a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine (although for class, we used the Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine, with a sparkle of red metallic thread).

We finished with a simple tag using Greetings from Santa, stamped in Real Red ink.

Easy, beautiful and so elegant!
