Happy Monday everyone! This week is Christmas so I’m sure many of you are scrambling to get those cookies made, presents wrapped, groceries bought, and everything else. I just wanted to say May Your Days Be Merry through it all! Stop and take a deep breath and enjoy the site of your tree lights glistening. Enjoy the sounds of laughter from your children or those at a party! Try to enjoy the little things this week!!!
Today I’m sharing with you a quick and simple card that uses up a few scraps that I had laying around! I used a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. When I am using ribbon, I liked this size/style because it uses less ribbon around than a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ style. I had some strips of Silver Foil Paper left over so I added a strip of that. It can be 2″ wide or a 1/2″ wide, whichever you prefer or whichever you have scraps of! Then I took a piece of the Winter Wonderland Designer Series Paper which was also leftover. If you are cutting your Designer Series Paper into 4″ x 5-1/4″ which is the perfect layering size for a card front then you have a strip leftover that is 1-1/2″ x 4″. That is perfect for a card like this! I tried the Real Red Cotton Ribbon around the card right over the overlap of the two stripes of paper! For the greeting, I stamped it in Real Red on some scrap white with the Berry Merry Stamp Set! I punched it out with the 2″ Circle Punch and brushed the edges with a Sponge Dauber for a pop of color! I added the greeting to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished it off with a few Rhinestones! Everything needs a little bling! 🙂
I had some leftover pieces for this card but didn’t need any more holiday cards. Switch up the greeting and it makes a fabulous Birthday card! I love that!!!
I am following you from Titus Tuesdays. A lovely idea.
Welcome!!! Thank you for hopping over! ~Laura
SO simple and pretty! This was the first year in …. gosh I don’t know how many! That I sent out store bought cards. Just could not get it together to make mine. But it really just isn’t the same to me unless I make them myself. Pinning your card for future ideas!
Thank you! Quick and Simple is the way to go…..or starting really early! 🙂 ~Laura
