Christmas Card 2011

Ok here it is, the card that the Perry family will be sending out this year.


So did you find the card in the catalog?  It is on page 60.  I loved the original color of the cards but if you think Chocolate and Twilight are not Christmas colors then make this card yours and change the colors.

Here is the supply list that I used:

Makes 50 cards

9033 Wishes™ Card Confidence Program page 50

Twilight Cardstock (50 sheets)

Cut each sheet 8 x 7 to make one card base

Chocolate Cardstock (16 sheets) X5643

White Daisy cardstock (16 sheets) 1385

Winter Joy stamp set C1468

Chocolate ink stamp pad Z2111

Clear Detail Embossing Powder Z821

Prisma Glitter Z134

Bitty Sparkles Z1263

DMC Floss 931

(the floss is from a local craft store.  931 is the color that matches Twilight)

You can not see the detail in the photo but I embossed the “Joy” stamped on the front with a mix of Clear Detail embossing powder and Prisma Glitter.  It adds just a touch of sparkle and makes the word “Joy” pop. 

Before you start using Prisma Glitter turn off all ceiling fans in your room or you will look like Tinkerbelle sneezed on you before you are done.

The card in the catalog only uses:

cardstock, stamps, ink and ribbon

You can keep it simple or add your own touches to really make this card stand out.  But remember to keep it fun.  Your friends and family will love getting this hand made card.

I have 10 done and 40 more to go.
