Still, every so often, I will attempt a card -- like when CK asks me to do so. :)
Unfortunately, I needed to downsize this one, so the one that is featured in the December issue of CK is teeny tiny in comparison, but I love them both. Here's the process I used to put the card together:
Steps:1. Trim or punch 25 1” squares from patterned paper, die-cut paper, and textured cardstock.2. Trim or punch a few extra die-cut paper squares, and use them as a mask over white cardstock squares, misting over them with red and green.3. Stamp and emboss letters on individual squares to spell “Happy Holidays” or another desired greeting.4. Fold a 6” x 12” length of cardstock in half, and affix squares to the front of the card in a grid format, adding pop dots behind those squares with letters.
Supplies:Cardstock: American Crafts (Shamrock), Doodlebug (Green Glitter Dot), Bazzill (white); Patterned Paper: October Afternoon, BasicGrey, Scenic Route; Die-cut Paper: BasicGrey; Stamps: Studio Calico; Watermark Stamp Pad: VersaMark; Embossing Powder: American Crafts; Mist: Maya Road; Pop Up Dots: Glue Dots.
