Say it in Lights
Alright everyone, it's already happened--Jenny has BINGO!!! That means it's time to reset your cards. (Have you been using blue ink? Switch to red) I put all the pieces back into the bowl, and the first piece for this new round of bingo is Santa's hat. Mark your cards...and cross your fingers. :)
On to today's card. This one is really simple, and though I didn't think too much of it, it's been a big hit on Stampin' Connection, the demonstrator-only website where demos share creative and business ideas. The beauty to this card is that it's really simple to make and to mass produce--I'd love to show you how.
All you need is paper, a Big Shot with the Stocking Accessories die, a Basic Black marker and then whatever stamp you'd like to use. For this card, I used Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight and--my personal favorite--Red Glimmer paper and, with just a few cranks of the handle, had four Christmas tree lights. I used my Basic Black marker to put a band across each of the lights.
Next up, I adhered the lights to my card and used the Basic Black marker again to string my lights on wire. The final touch was my merry and bright holiday sentiment from Merry & Type, inked in Island Indigo and stamped in the corner.
It takes longer to write this out than it does to make the card! You should try one for yourself. :)
