Tinsel Town Holiday Card

12.02.2008



This month we're having some fun over on the Creative Imaginations blog and this week we started things off by creating Christmas cards using different collections by CI. This was my card that was posted today using the Tinsel Town Collection from the Signature Collection. Love the classic look of this line and making the card was the perfect excuse for getting out my new clear alphabet stamps by Karen Russell to play with!


Supplies Used:

#22240 Signature Collection, Tinsel Town Glitter Cardstock
#21885 Narratives Antique Cream Collection Stamps
#21075 Eye Candy Light Topaz Swarovski Elements

Other Supplies: Cardstock, Ribbon, Yarn, sewing machine thread, pigment ink, gold embossing powder

Tools Needed: paper trimmer, distressing tool, heat gun (for embossing), clear stamp block, sewing machine

Directions:

1. Cut a piece of cardstock to measure 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches and fold in half.
2. Cut a red piece of cardstock to measure 3 1/4 X 3 1/2 inches and a piece of the patterned Tinsel Town cardstock cardstock to measure 3 x 3 1/4 inches and mat the patterned paper to the red cardstock.
3. Using your sewing machine, stitch a border around the Tinsel Town cardstock.
4. Using a pigment ink (I used Versamark) stamp the word "Joy" onto your Tinsel Town Cardstock, adding embossing powerder {i used gold} and heat with heating tool.
5. Using a glue dot, add your Eye Candy Swarovski gemstone to the top of your tree.
6. Cut a length of ribbon to measure 6 inches and using your scissors, cut a notch into one end and adhere ribbon to the middle of your card.
7. Adhere your square of cardstock and patterned paper that you stamped on over the top of the ribbon.
8. Tie a length of yarn (measuring approximately 15 inches or so) to the top of your card and finish by tying a pretty bow!
