Simple Noel

Good morning everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful Friday! I know I will be busy all weekend cleaning the house and getting everything ready for Thanksgiving. However, I will be taking a break to see the new Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part I Saturday night and I can't wait! is the card that I quickly made up for the Christmas Card Swap to correct my mistake.

Stamps: Warmest of Wishes
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Whisper White Craft Ink, Real Red
Accessories: Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Decorative Label Punch, Real Red Satin Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Mini Jingle Bells, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip.

The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Basic Grey cardstock that was scored at 4 1/4". Another piece of Basic Grey cardstock was cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8". This was run through the Big Shot in the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder. Whisper White Craft ink was run directly over the top of the cardstock to lighten up the textured portion and the sides of the cardstock were also swiped across the ink pad to give the panel a lighter edge. After the craft ink dried this panel was adhered to a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Old Olive cardstock. A piece of 5/8" Real Red Satin Ribbon was adhered to the panel and wrapped around to the back at the top. This makes it look like the ribbon is just hanging there. This panel was adhered to the card front.

The greeting from Warmest of Wishes was stamped in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The label was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. A small piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine was cut and threaded through a Mini Jingle Bell using a needle threader. The ends of the thread were adhered behind the bottom of the label with Sticky Strip. I just placed the Sticky Strip on top of the thread and did not remove the other liner. So baiscally I used it like regular tape. The label was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

This card was super quick and easy to make! A great one for when you're running out of time, like I was, and still need to make Christmas cards to send out!

Thanks for stopping by!
