O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!

My Dear, Sweet, Wonderful (hope she reads this) sister borrowed me her brand new "Season of Joy" set by Stampin' Up! Wasn't that sweet of her???? I put the set together for her. Not much work to it since all the sets in the mini catalog were die cut so you just removed them from the rubber and mounted them on the wood block. How simple is that??? I've had the set for a while and thought I'd better make some cards with it so I can get it back to her. I will give her some cards too. I am making extra ones so she can have some for letting me borrow her new set.

I wanted to make a simple card. This one was just that. A little sponging, some clear embossing on glossy card stock and a piece of decorative paper to go on the card stock. I would have to say the glossy card stock was the piece that took the most time. You emboss your image in clear embossing powder and then sponge on the color (Always Artichoke is what I used here). It doesn't take long to do but in the scheme of things it was the part of the card that took the longest. I wish I would have designed this card to use for our Christmas card. FAR less pieces to it than the one I picked.

I was out of the Always Artichoke card stock but I did find some scraps. Kind of hard to make a card when you aren't fully stocked!!!

I added a bit of twinkle on this card. I used a detailed Metallic Gelly Roll pen. I think the Dazzling Diamonds glitter would have been prettier. Besides I haven't worn any of that in a while!!! LOL

Well, it's off to work on those Christmas cards. I have 130 of them to make and I'd like to have them done by Friday evening so I can sit in front of the tv and play a Christmas movie while I address them!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

BTW...which card did you decide on for your mass production? A few days ago you said you had all the pieces cut out, but I don't remember which one you're doing :)

Love this. I'm on the hunt for great looking cards that are simple to make and won't cost a lot to send. Thanks for sharing an example of a card that fits this description.
