2010 Christmas Card #8

This is my 8th design for Christmas 2010.

Miss Elizabeth's paper was my choice for this one.  I picked up many packs (at least 10) of this multi design 12x12 paper pack for 50c a pack last year at Dollar Tree during the end of the season sale. What a great deal that was!

The ribbon came from Michael's. They had a sale last week on this ribbon at 20c for a 10-yard roll. What a deal! I stocked up on some ribbon.

The center snowflake is from a package of white snowflake buttons I bought at JoAnn's. The snowflake is embossed with Stampendous Embossing Powder in Blue Tinsel. I repeated the embossing a couple of times and let it dry in between, using a clip on the button shank during the heating process; heat guns get extremely hot. I brushed some of the embossed powder from the center before it dried to give it some depth. Then, I cut the shank from the button with a button shank remover tool.

Next step was to cut a tag out of blue cardstock with the Cricut using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge; actually used an old Christmas card we received a few years ago that color of blue looks great with white lettering.  American Crafts MiniMarks rub-ons are used for the 'Merry Christmas' greeting.

Tied a bow in the ribbon and glued it in place with Elmer's Fabric & Paper Glue. Used TomBoy adhesive runner to tack the ends of the ribbon to the back of the paper and to stick the paper to the card.

Used Elmer's Tacky Glue to attach the snowflake and tag to the ribbon.

The strips along the top and bottom of the card are also heat embossed using the Blue Tinsel Stampendous Embossing Powder.
