Sorry for missing my Thursday post – there was a bit of a blip in my life and it just didn’t happen. But I’m back now and have a really fun card to show you!
Like my last post, this card was inspired by a simple notelet design I came up as an idea for our attendees’ free time, if they wanted to break into their goody bag. The base is Thick Whisper White with a mat of Real Red, followed by a top layer of Whisper White. I stamped the moose from Jolly Friends in Soft Suede and then punched the hat out of Real Red glimmer paper using the Jolly Hat punch (you’ll have some extra parts) and then just the brim and pom-pom out of the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. You cab buy the stamp set and the hat as a bundle and get 10% off. The punch has these three shapes and if you punch the hat you get all three but you can avoid the hat if you want to and just get the other two shapes, if that makes sense! I attached the hat pieces together using glue dots – it’s pretty much the only adhesive that seems to work on glimmer paper, plus they are nice and small. I used the embossing buddy all over the top layer, then stamped the sentiment from Star of Light in Versamark followed by Real Red and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. It really shines – the photo doesn’t do it justice. I constructed the card with Tombow and then popped the hat up on dimensionals at a jaunty angle and added the Glimmery Red nose (the smaller circle from the Owl builder punch) using a glue dot.
Simple and fun, I thought! Hope you like it.
