I thought I'd share a quick and easy 6 x 6 christmas card with you that I made from some papers left over from the retreat.
Here's what you need and how to make it.
Yuletide Greetings 12 x 12 (one sheet)
Scrooge & Marley 12 x 12 (one sheet)
Patterns and Solids - cream (two sheets)
White 6 x 6 card blank
One A4 sheet white card
Distress Pen to ink paper edges (Peacock Feathers)
Cut one 5 3/4" square and one 3 1/4" square of Yuletide Greetings paper, matt the smaller one on a 3 3/8" square of white card. Cut one 5" square of cream patterns and solids and matt on white card. Stick the larger spotty square and cream square in place on the front of your card fold to the left.
Cut one strip of four stamps from the reverse of the Yuletide Greetings paper, trim to 5 3/4" long, matt on white card and stick to your card front vertically 1" from the left. Wrap your ribbon around the smaller spotty paper square, tie ends in a bow, put foam pads on reverse and stick piece in place on your card front with 1/2" of the stamp strip showing along left edge.
Cut one large stamp and the Seasons Greetings sentiment out from Scrooge & Marley paper. Use a hole punch to create the stamp edging on the stamp. Mount on foam pads and stick in place on the card front under your ribbon bow. Add the sentiment to finish your card front.
For the inside of your card trim the second sheet of cream patterns and solids paper to 5 3/4". Tie a second strip of ribbon around the paper, tie in a bow and then stick the paper in place on the inside of your card. Cut one 1" x 5 3/4" strip of spotty paper, matt on white card and stick in place on the inner left side of your card and add a small stamp, mounted on foam pads under the ribbon bow to finish.
After a 5am start, a trip to take Oli to work at 5.30am I'm now waiting in for my new washing machine to be delivered some time between 7.15am and 11.15am. there's so much to go through it when it arrives I hope the wind that's been blowing a hoolie all night stays around to dry it all. I hope you've got more exciting things planned for your day, enjoy and look forward to catching up in a couple of days with this months giveaway.:-)
