Merry Christmas Card
By Debbie Samples
Designer Tip: Use several glittered wreaths and stars to make your card shine.
- Card front: Place a blank card with the fold on top. Cover with Vintage Christmas red swirl paper. Cut a 6 ½” piece of the Vintage Christmas red/green border paper, following the swirl at the top. Glue to the bottom of the card. Place a red jewel border Dazzles™ along the border. Place Merry Christmas on the bottom. Zot two flowers on the border, on the left and right of the card.
- Cut apart the wreaths that you want to use. Peel off the top acetate sheet. Place the green part of the wreaths on white cardstock. Dust with green glitter. Burnish in with your finger. Tap off the excess, and then fill in the red parts of the wreath and bow. Dust with red glitter, and burnish with your finger. Tap off the excess. Cut out each wreath, using an X-acto knife for the small parts. Use the same process to glitter all of the stars. Foam tape to the card front as shown. Use one star for the “I” in Christmas.
- Card inside: Place the “Joy” Dazzles™ on a 3 ½”x2 1/2” Vintage Christmas green paper. Mat on a 5 1/2”x3 ½” Vintage Christmas tan/green star paper. Mat again on a Vintage Christmas green paper with 1/8” borders on three sides, and ¾" at the top. Use the method in Step 2 to glitter the remaining small wreaths and holly. Cut out, and glue to the card inside as shown.
