Fourteen of us got together in Fort Atkinson last night to make Christmas cards, and did we ever get a lot done! We had three Big Shots and pretty much kept them in continual crankage the entire evening! This is one of the designs we made, just an easy and elegant Bashful Blue, white and silver card. Like most of the Christmas cards you'll see on my blog, it would also make a good candidate for mass-production--just two stamps, one outside and one in, and heat embossing in silver for a quick wow.
The embossed border is done with the new Delicate Designs folder, and the snowflake is made from silver Glimmer Paper and cut out with the wonderful new Snow Flurry die and accented with a Basic Rhinestone. When I need to make a LOT of cards, I often use the White Organza ribbon, because it is super inexpensive for a big roll, at just $5.95. You can spritz or shimmer it, sponge or heat-curl it, and even emboss it with both heat and dry embossing. Pretty cool stuff!
My card also has lots and lots of homemade Shimmer Spray on it, so that's four ways this card shines. This Christmas, it's all about the bling... what's your favorite way to add sparkle? Take my advice and don't try sprinkling it with COFFEE... see the little brown smudge in the upper right corner of my card? Yep... that occurred during the Great Iced Coffee Disaster of '12. Don't ask.
