Each year I look forward to offering a Christmas Quickie Card Class. I look for cards that are super fast but SPECTACULAR!! No one wants to send out boring cards but I know that time is a precious thing… especially during the holidays!
Have you ever created something on your own and beamed over it? That was how I felt when I made this card the other day! You can’t really see the sparkle from the Shimmer Mist – I love sparkly cards!! The dark burgundy in this is just gorgeous! The poinsettias are made with the 5-Petal punch and then embossed. It’s such a great card and I know you will love creating it! I smile every time I look at it.
This card is much prettier in person. It uses only one stamp set – Pines & Poinsettias (on page 21 of the Holiday Mini). I have to be honest, I wasn’t blown away by this stamp set when I saw it in the catalog but Stampin‘ Up sent it to me for free (I love this company!) Once I stamped with it, it became my favorite Christmas stamp set BUT check it out!!! The flowers and swirls (stamped inside) in this set are year round stamps! I really hope to create some “non-Christmas” samples for you before Stamp Club. 🙂 The seam binding ribbon adds the perfect touch to take this card to AMAZING! Many of you ask if I come up with the projects myself. This beautiful card was shared on our Demonstrator website. Yep, we are all about sharing!
I absolutely LOVE this card! It was one of my swaps from Founder’s Circle and created by my good friend Penny Thomas. It’s so elegant! Velvet ribbon, pearl jewels, and how about that beautiful sentiment! It’s just so pretty but it comes together SO fast! When you send out this card, your friends will be blown away by your creativity! Christmas is a great time to show off your talent, don’t you think?
