Countdown to Christmas - Day 1

This month I will be sharing a Christmas project each day with instructions and details on how to create it!  I've been teaching a lot this season so hopefully there is something in here for everyone, including those that attended one of my classes.

This first project is a quick and easy Christmas card that anyone could replicate with just a few supplies.  This is one of my favorites that I taught this season and the stamp set and washi tape are retiring!  The washi tape is on sale while supplies last for only $6.40 for all 5 wonderful rolls!

  • Stamp the sayings on the rectangle of Whisper White for the inside and outside of the card.  Set aside to dry as red pigments take longer to set on our White cardstock than other colors.
  • Layer three layers of washi tape across the center of the folded Whisper White card.  Make sure your gumdrops aren't upside-down!  Trim the ends.
  • Layer the big saying on the Real Red cardstock.  Add to the card using dimensionals. 
  • Add the small basic rhinestones to the flourishes as shown.
  • Layer the inside statements and attach to the inside of the card using adhesive.
  • Cardstock: Whisper White (8 1/2 x 5 1/2, 3 x 4, 4 x 1 3/4), Real Red (4 1/4 x 3 1/4, 4 1/4 x 2)
  • Ink: Real Red
  • Stamps: Wonderful Year
  • Accessories:  Candy Cane Washi Tape, Basic Rhinestones, Scissors, Dimensionals, Adhesive

While we have many great products on closeout, there is one program that you really should check out as well.  I only sell things I'm passionate about and this product line is definitely one of my favorites!

Paper Pumpkin is creativity in a box.  It costs $19.95 plus tax and ships to your mailbox once a month.  It contains everything you need for your own creative escape.  Besides the instructions and pieces for the cards or project, it also contains ink and photopolymer stamps and usually the adhesive you need as well.  My subscribers will also get a project sheet with tips and additional ideas and instructions that they can make with the supplies in the kits and sometimes some supplemental supplies.  They also are invited to participate in a free Paper Pumpkin Playdate to make their kits using any of my additional supplies like framelits and punches!  It's a wonderful program and I'd love for you to try it out!  Sign up by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit!
