Joy to the World - a Sparkling Christmas in July



Here is a very simple, clean and easy, but Oh-So-Sparkly Christmas card! The Red Glitter bow is made from the Red Glitter Cardstock from Stampin' Up! and the Season's Greetings sentiment is stamped in Real Red, embossed with Heat & Stick Powder then covered with Dazzling Diamonds Ultra Fine Glitter. I added an embossed area to the top of the card using the new Stylish Strips Textured Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up's Holiday Catalog (starts August 1st!)

What do you think of this card? Does it have enough Christmas Bling? To make the Paper Bow, I peeled the backing off the Red Glitter Cardstock to make it a little softer. I punched three ovals from this. Two are folded in half and adhered with a glue dot to create each of the bow loops. The third is cut in half, banner tips cut  and adhered below the loops for the ribbon ends. I used a narrow strip of Red Glitter Cardstock to adhered the bow loops together and wrap for the bow knot.

I'll add a couple pictures later to show you how easy this is.

Remember, if you don't feel like you have the time to design and create your Christmas Cards, I will have my Christmas Card Club again beginning in September. We will meet once a month during September, October and November to create 8 Christmas cards each month—4 each of 2 different designs—for a total of 24 beautiful holiday cards at the end of the three sessions. These lovely cards will feature a variety of techniques, fun folds, and lots of Christmas bling! in a range of styles and colors and featuring new stamp sets and new Stampin' Up! products. Christmas Card Club sessions will be Saturday nights.  Cost is just $20 per person per month for the three month commitment and is all inclusive with envelopes and adhesive provided. If you pay $60 in full before our first Christmas Card Club night, I will include a FREE package of Ultra Fine Glitter!

If you’d like to join me in being prepared for the holidays by having your hand stamped Christmas cards completed by Thanksgiving, and want have a fun night out once a month, this is YOUR Club!

If you RSVP with a friend, I will have a gift for you both the first night. : ) I have limited space so be sure to RSVP soon!
