MC Sept/14 - Jingle Bells - My Idea of a Perfect Christmas
I side folded my white card (5"w x 7"h).
Inked up the embossing folder with a Distress mini pad (nice and juicy) "Mowed Lawn", then colored the berries with a Distress Marker "Barn Door", misted with water and inserted my white cardstock in to the un-inked side, then closed to folder and ran through my machine (my newest gadget a Cheery Lynn Crossover machine - love it...). Trimmed down and layered it on to a dark green textured cardstock. Trimmed that down using my layering ruler at 1/8" and adhered them to the card front. Added a bit of Quickie Glue to the berries and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter Regal Red".
Placed a piece of aluminum tape onto a piece of cardstock and die cut using Memory Box "Jingle Bells" a couple times. Adhered to card with white glue.
Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "My Idea...") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders circle set and sponged edges with Distress "Barn Door". Adhered to card. Die cut the ornament attachment using Sizzix "Carved Ornament" die set and a scrap of the aluminum cardstock. Distressed the hanger and colored with a black Lumocolor marker and wiped off the excess. Adhered to ornament on card.
Punched out some pine branches (McGill punch) from some green decorated cardstock, then hit the punched elements with Distress "Pine Needles". Adhered to ornament. Adhered some narrow red ribbon and added a bow.
