Today’s card is a quick and easy, Clean and Simple card for Christmas, using the super fun Six Sayings Host set and the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits dies. I just love the Six Sayings set – not only are the sentiments great, but the fonts are all just beautiful! Sure is a good reason to host a workshop so that you can get it for yourself…. just sayin’! 😉
Take a look-see:
Oh – you’re wondering about the Blog Candy teaser in the title?!? Don’t blame you a bit….read on and you’ll see what’s on the table!
This card was inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #145…..after you leave your comment to get entered for the blog candy (there’s a little foreshadowing for you!), please be sure to head over and check out everyone’s contributions, okay?
I leaned heavily on my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for this card – and on my roll of scotch tape! I taped off the second half of the sentiment and stamped the “Merry Christmas” onto my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig clear sheet. I stamped the image 3 times – taping, inking, removing tape, stamping, repeating….in Real Red on a Whisper White Note Card. Then I cleaned off the stamp and did one image in Garden Green. I finished off the artwork by doing the 5th image in Real Red. And that was it! Hardest part was remembering to take the tape off the stamp before stamping each image!! 😉
The focal point is the lovely Delicate Ornaments Thinlit die, cut from a piece of Red Glimmer Paper. I didn’t do a background circle for the ornament, because I kind of liked being able to see the sentiment behind it! I cut the little hanger doohickey from a piece of Gold Foil – there’s a little tiny die for that in the Delicate Ornament dies. I used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to the ornament. Then I ran a length of Gold 1/8″ Ribbon thru the doohickey, and secured it together with a little dab o’ glue.
I used the Liquid Glue to adhere the ornament and the ribbon to the card front and that was that! Very simple and clean.
For the inside, I repeated the Six Sayings sentiment – but I used the entire thing. I stamped it with Versamark and then sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.
I added a quick liner from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack – cutting it with my Envelope Liner Framelits.
Et Voila! Easy. Peasy. Done! 🙂
