I love getting a jump on things! This month I am planning on getting a jump on Christmas Cards! I have a class at the end of the month where we will be making 16 cards at one time! 3 each of 5 designs! I have already shown you Two of my cards:
The Third Christmas card (out of 6) is straight out of the catalog! I don’t know what you guys think about the new Catalog, but I LOVE the card ideas in there! Stampin’ Up! has stepped up most of the ideas and I love them so much I have copied them…….or as a lot of Stampers call it (CASE…..Copy, And, Share, Everything). It’s great when you are in a bind for an idea and there it is!
Here is the card I’m sharing today!
You can find this design on page 114 in the Catalog! Another antiquey card! I colored the berries on the bottom, so it’s TECHNICALLY not a total CASE but I pretty much copied everything else. Do you like it?
Out of my 6 cards, most are straightforward and very simple, but others are a ‘little’ harder. This one has some masking (I put the stamped image that was cut out of post it over the Santa to sponge around him, so I could get it darker around the edges than i wanted him) I then sponged again, to make sure and get parts of him sponged so it looks old. This card is something anyone could do, with some guidance. I HAVE to have some easier cards so we can make them in bulk, but also have some stepped up cards so we, as stampers, are happy!
Details for this card: ie measurements:
Soft Suede 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored in half at 4 1/4″
Very Vanilla 4 x 4 3/4″ torn on the 4″ side (once torn it will be approximately 3 5/8″) and 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ (for the part the Santa is stamped on), 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside
