Stamp Simply celebrates World Card-Making Day with new ribbon and a sale on ALL Spellbinders product in stock! Read below for details, but first here’s a totally FUN card for today:
What a fun Christmas card to make! I started with these darling petite prints in Cottage Christmas, a 6×6 pad by Imaginisce, and paired it up with my much larger tree that I adorned with new ribbon, 3/8″ Solid Two Tone (bow made with Bow Easy), and decorated with Kaiser Rhinestones.
If you have children who want to make Christmas cards, this would be a fun one for them! I just cut a template for the triangle tree, adhered it to my piece of 6×6 paper with removable tape and took it to my paper cutter and cut. I got 3 trees from each 6×6 sheet. I did back my designer paper tree with cardstock to give it more stability as I wanted to wrap my ribbon around it, and it just made it easier, but certainly not necessary. Also, when I use my Kaiser Rhinestones and Pearls, I find myself using up all the smaller ones first and being left with the larger ones — WELL — those larger rhinestones make PERFECT Christmas tree decorations!!!
This card is 6 x 4 1/4″. I use the envelopes from Wal-mart called Invitation Envelopes for this size. They hold a 4 x 6 photo — PERFECT for Christmas!
I thought this sentiment was absolutely perfect to go along with this paper! It’s from my FAV set full of Christmas Sentiments — Christmas Nested Sentiments by JustRite. It’s made to fit the new CLEAR Rectangle Stampers that I am really enjoying! Ink used is Versa Fine Onyx Black. And I cut my sentiment on my Spellbinders Labels 4 Die, without a doubt one of the most used dies I have, other than the standard circles, ovals, etc. I just love the shape and graceful curves of this die and find it fits in well with so much of what I love to do!
And check out my new ribbon by May Arts — loving this new ribbon in a 3/8″ width. It has some degree of stiffness, or body, which allows my little bow to hold its shape and look so pretty! And I LOVE the two tone coloration on these beautiful jewel tone ribbons:
3/8″ Solid Two Tone
47 Violet/Red, 67 Purple/Navy, 03 Navy/Royal, 15 Blue/Green,
16 Not Available, 36 Copper, 08 Navy/Gold, 38 Bittersweet, 14 Dark Red, 44 Red
$ .60 per yard with a 5 yard Minimum Cut (you may requst more)
$24.00 for a 50 yard spool
