Blue and Red Christmas

Good morning! Today I apparently missed posting one of the cards from the August Make and Take. In my Make and Take classes starting from August I have one Christmas card at least. That way people can get ideas for their Christmas cards, or if they don’t have many to send, then they have all the Christmas cards they need. Anyway, here is the Christmas card from August:



Stamps: Snow Swirled, Delightful Decorations, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Bashful Blue, Real Red
Accessories: Top Note Die, Northern Flurries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Ornament Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, 5/8” Real Red Satin Ribbon, Baker’s Twine, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Vanilla Smooch Spritz, Corner Rounder Punch, Snail Adhesive

The card base is Bashful Blue cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. The corners were punched with the Corner Rounder Punch. The snowflake from Snow Swirled was stamped on the cardstock in Bashful Blue ink to create a background. Next a piece of Whisper White and Real Red cardstock were cut 4” x 5” and were run through the Big Shot on the Top Note Die. The Whisper White top not was run through the Big Shot again in the Northern Flurries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder then it was sprayed with Vanilla Smooch Spritz to give the panel some sparkle. The Real Red top note was cut in half length-wise and the points that were in the middle of the sides were snipped off with Paper Snips. The Real Red top note halves were adhered behind the Whisper White top note.


A piece of 5/8” Real Red Satin Ribbon was adhered to the panel using Snail Adhesive. At the top of the panel the ribbon was folded around and adhered to the backside of the panel. The other end was cut into a dove-tail with paper snips. This panel was adhered to the card front. The ornament from Definitely Decorative was stamped in Bashful Blue ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The ornament was punched out with the Ornament Punch. A piece of Baker’s Twine was wrapped around the ornament top and tied into a bow. The ornament was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Next the Modern Label punch was used on a scrap of Bashful Blue cardstock. Then the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The greeting was punched out with the Word Window punch and was adhered to the Bashful Blue modern label. The greeting label was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Come back tomorrow to see the first card from the September Make and Take. This time I won’t try to forget one of them!

Thanks for stopping by!
