Merry and Bright Sparkly Christmas Card using Winter Frolic



Back to traditional colors with my favorite Anna Griffin and October Afternoon papers!  This 5" x 7" card was made quickly and easily by folding a piece of 7" x 10"white cardstock in half.  I created the card front using red Core'dinations cardstock as a base and mounting various Anna Griffin and October Afternoon (striped paper only) onto the front.  I used the Fiskars scalloped punch to punch along the red and green cardstocks.


The "Merry and Bright" word art comes from the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge.  I cut it at 2-1/2" and layered it using red and green glitter cardstock from DCWV.  LOVE that stuff!  Use Scotch Quick Dry glue to adhere it down as that actually sticks glitter paper to glitter paper.  I layered that onto two circles cut at 5-1/4" and 6" using the Mini Monograms Cricut cartridge (note that those are NOT real dial size so the circles aren't actually that large a size).  I ran the red circle through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder.  I pop dotted the whole thing onto the front.


Side view of the card.  My little white border got wiggled when I handled it to photo.  I put some heavier adhesive onto it following the photo shoot...


I decorated the inside of the card with a scrap of Anna Griffin paper that I cut with the Fiskars scallop punch.  I stamped a sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

Ba-zinga!  Done!

Tune in tomorrow for Melanie's next fabulous Christmas card!
