Celebrate the Season

This is just a quick post for the K. Werner Color Challenge. I really like these colors and decided to incorporate them into a holiday card since I need a new template. So, this is an introductory debut of this year's holiday card collection. I will post the remaining collection this weekend. This is a fairly simple card with a fun layout and design.

To make this card:
  1. Make card base by cutting cardstock to 5.25" x 10.5", then score at 5.25".
  2. Trim sand cardstock to 5.25" x 5.25".
  3. Stamp image on right side of sand cardstock.
  4. Trim green cardstock to 5.25" x 2".
  5. Stamp polka dots on green cardstock.
  6. Trim white cardstock to 5.25" x 1".
  7. Scallop edge punch white cardstock.
  8. Adhere scallop edge white cardstock to green cardstock.
  9. Tie ribbon around green cardstock, then adhere to the sand cardstock.
  10. Stamp sentiment between image and scallop edge then add stickles/liquid pearls to image.
