Just a Little Christmas Note




Hey Bleeps! Happy Saturday to you! It finally stopped raining here so I guess I can come out of shelter and get some things done. Tomorrow I'm taking Donna Downey's new fabric scrapbooking class at my LSS and I need MAD SUPPLIES! So, here is a quickie post inspired by Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge! These colors are so great together and are perfect holiday colors (in my opinion at least)! I made a mini card with a leftover card base. I've been dying to try out Claire's new stamp set to create a plaid design. Well, I chickened out and only did a partial plaid featuring one color!

Have a great weekend everyone and I appreciate your visit!

Instructions
  1. Trim cardstock to 3" x 11", then score at 5.5".
  2. Trim kraft cardstock strip.
  3. Stamp background on new leaf cardstock strip, then mat on kraft cardstock.
  4. Tie ribbon into a bow around strip, then adhere to card front.
  5. Punch circle from raspberry fizz cardstock.
  6. Stamp circle border and sentiment on circle punch.
  7. Die cut scallop circle, then adhere circle die on top with foam adhesive.
  8. Adhere scalloped circle focal point to card center using LOTS of foam adhesive. (I doubled it up here.)
  9. Add button with twine.
Supplies
  • Stamps :: Papertrey Ink - take note, signature christmas; Waltzingmouse - off beat backgrounds
  • Ink :: Clear Snaps - colorbox chestnut
  • Paper :: Papertrey Ink - rustic cream, new leaf, kraft, raspberry fizz, dark chocolate
  • Embellishments :: Papertrey Ink - raspberry fizz ribbon, new leaf button; jewelry twine cord
  • Tools :: Spellbinders - scallop circle nestabilities; McGill Craftivity - 2-1/8" circle punch; Provo Craft - cuttlebug
