noel - carte de Jamie Pate


Hello Friends...I have a little post over at scrap rende-vouz.
My sweet friend, Alexandra, with two of her friends, hosts this site and I encourage you to becoming a daily visitor.
They are currently in a series of Christmas cards. They will be posting a card a day from now until October 31st. and since this series began on Saturday, the 2nd...that will give you 30 cards of inspiration to enable your card giving this coming Christmas season.

here is my sketch...

 This cards is very, very simple indeed. It's dimensions are 4 inches by 7 1/2.

 The base of the card is a cream textured cover stock. This is an 80 lb. card stock cover that I like better for cards than the 60 lb. The doily is sprayed lightly with a spray adhesive, and then glittered. The kraft stock was die cut to a tag, and then embossed with a textured folder. Adding a little bling on the swirls adds to it's elegant and celebratory feel.
The word banner is was printed and inked and notched. It is popped up on the top of the tag to add a bit of dimension, but not too much as to not be able to be mailed.
This is a terribly simple card, and one that can translate into any holiday or celebration.
If you have any questions please leave me a comment.
thank you so much for visiting and commenting today.

card stock: cream 80 lb. stock; crumb cake (kraft)-stampin up.
