{Spotlight Project} Maria Makes A Christmas Card 4fer

Hello there STAMP friends! Time to crank out those Christmas cards, right? And how about use up a little PP stash in the process? I've got a 4fer fer you today. SO easy. You can thank me later ;)

This is one of the four cards I created in no time.

Gather supplies - Christmas patterned paper (I used a pad of coordinating papers plus a sheet of music), a die for your front panel (Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle), a tag die (Luggage Tags) and a die for your focal image (Two Reindeer and Christmas Icons Nativity and Angel). You could use a stamp for a sentiment but I chose the new Christmas Sentiments dies.

I selected my four papers, using the front panel die as a guide to see if I liked the combo of papers.

I die cut a front panel from each of the four PP. Also die cut four tags from glitter CS and four focal images from white CS.

Cut each of the panels in half vertically and horizontally. TIP: Keep the cut panels in neat piles so you don't have to puzzle top/bottom/left/right edge together later.

I arranged the cut panels on four cardbases then adhered them with tape runner.

I added the focal images to the tags. Then I added a little piece of baker's twine to each tag before adhering them to the cards with foam tape.

The last step was to add a sentiment. I die cut the sentiments from the scraps left from tag and focal image cutting. Chose white for the two Noels so they would show up better. Easy. SO easy. I bet it took me less than half an hour to make four cards!!! But definitely Christmas-y, don't ya think?
