Merry Christmas

I only have 2 cards left from the 7 I made with the 2 Holiday Project Kits I purchased from Spellbinders/Fun Stampers Journey last month. One of the kits sold out quickly! And I didn't get the other one showcasing new Glimmer Hot Foil plates as I need to use the plates I have!

This card used a sheet from the new 6 x 6 paper pack called Holly Jolly Prints.  I ordered 2 packs as this paper is almost glossy! It also uses the new Holiday Sentiments Stacks clear stamp set. There's more than just sentiments in this set! The directions for this card called for tying a bow at the top of the print piece but my bows look real funky. So I cut a strip of the ribbon and adhered the ends to the card back and made a bow with my Bow-Easy, tied a piece of Whip Cream thread around it, then adhered it to the ribbon. Much neater! I purchased my Bow-Easy quite a few years ago and I love how nicely it makes ribbon bows.

There's a bit of bling in the Merry! I added some Journey Glaze and sprinkled some Sparkle Cuts over it. I tried to get a good picture but you really can's see the full effect.

With all the dimension on this card it will take extra postage to mail. I would recommend adding this card to a package rather than try to mail it in an envelope.

Cute card Carol! I recently started crafting again, started a YouTube channel and it lead me to re-connect with Kim Sears. So I started trying to think of other TAC consultants. I'm horrible with names but you and Barb Foster immediately came to mind. I hope you are doing well! If you would ever like to swap a 3 x 5 art card let me know. Big TX hugs, Melisa Waldorf
