Holiday Fence

>> Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Hi Everyone,

Today's card was made in opposition of a birthday card I made a while back.  A friend asked me to make a birthday card for his 82 year old aunt, and I proceeded with a bunch of layers, flowers, ribbon and gems.  It was lovely, and he was pleased, but I quickly said, "If you're going to send it through the mail, you need a padded envelope and more than one stamp!"

So, since that's not realistic when sending 50 holiday cards, here is a simple, flat card that fits the one stamp criteria :)  I stamped and die cut the Family and Friends Greeting, adding a bit of sponged ink and layered it on some sticker paper that was die cut and coated in a multi colored glitter named Victorian Christmas. 

After I stamped and colored the Christmas Fence on on my background, I punched my corners and added a red layer before adhering everything to my card base.

So festive and glittery, Karin! Love the shapes and glitter coated layer and die shapes. The fence looks terrific across the bottom.
