Sparkle and Shine Bulbs Card

Talk about a quick and simple card to make. I used the new Stampin' Up! "Sparkle and Shine" jumbo wheel. I LOVE wheels. This one was perfect for a quick and simple card.

I used the Embossing Buddy on the Real Red card stock. I didn't want any of that white embossing powder sticking where I didn't want it to. I got a few grains here and there but not too bad. I had an empty cartridge for the wheel so I inked it up with VersaMark. If I had to make a lot of these cards it would be VERY easy to do with the cartridge in the wheel. I then embossed it in white.

I layered the red piece (cut 4" x 3") on top of a piece of white card stock (cut 4-1/8" x 5-3/8").

I stamped the "Christmas Greeting" on using Black ink. The words came from the Stampin' Up! "Grateful Greetings" set.

Before I taped the white layer on I added the ribbon and tied a knot on. When I add my ribbon like this I cut a piece about 6" long and I tape the edges on the back. Then I slip a piece of ribbon on and tie it in a knot. Doing the ribbon this way allows it to lay nicer and it's not as bulky because there is only one knot in it. Plus it allows you to slide the knot where you want it. I LOVE that part the most!!!

If you need a quick Christmas card, this is the way to go!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

So pretty, you always make the wheels look good (I have problems with them).
