A Stylish Christmas Card

September 21, 2013

032Some of you are aware that I do a class each week at Beachmere Retirement Resort.  I have a great bunch of ladies who attend these classes and we have a lot of fun.  Last week we made the Telescoping card I shared with you here.  When I cut the piece for the Season of Style Designer Series Paper I cut it the wrong size!  I had all these pieces of paper cut, sooo… what to do.  Well, of course, I had to make another Christmas card.

This time I cut my Whisper White card in half lengthwise, trimmed 5cm from the bottom of the front of the card and punched the shortened end with the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  I wrapped the spotted piece of designer paper from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack with Cherry Cobbler 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon.  I tied a knot in a piece of Crumb Cake 3/8″ Tafetta Ribbon and wrapped it over the top of the Cherry Cobbler ribbon.  This piece was then attached to the shortened card front. I punched one long edge in a narrow piece of Cherry Cobbler card using the Scallop Edge Border Punch and attached it behind a piece of striped designer series paper (which is actually the reverse side of the spotted designer series paper) and attached it to the lower edge of the inside of the card.  I stamped the beautiful word image from the O Holy Night stamp set onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  The greeting panel is attached to Cherry Cobbler card and then Crumb Cake card before attaching it to the card front.  I made sure that the image panel was centred on the card front and that the bottom of the panel lined up with the bottom edge of the inside of the card.  To finish off the inside I stamped the “starry” image from the O Holy Night stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink.

I love this card.  I love that it is so pretty and also I love that it has a different kind of fold.  What do you think?  I am sure the ladies at Beachmere will love this card too.
