Cover-a-Card Small Dots

Do you realize that Christmas is really just around the corner? Usually I have a good percentage of my cards made but I am solely lacking right now. I am starting to make some cards but have to work double time to get caught up. Between working and babysitting my grandchildren (If it sounds like I am complaining, I'm really not because I love being with my grandchildren. I am complaining about work though.) I find I don't seem to have much time for anything else. I'm thinking this year of making a very simple elegant card and mass produce.

This card is what I'm talking about. It is so easy to make. To start off with I made a gatefold card. Used our cover-a-card small dots and inked in Memento Bahama Blue. I love this ink because I can color and it doesn't bleed and washes off the stamps with just a baby wipe. Using our SNOW stamp, I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with blue Blick Marker, covered the snow areas of the stamp with Stickles Frosted Lace. Let dry. I then used clear gel glitter pen to highlight snowflakes and dots and then added a bow. If you don't have a Bow-Easy, you should get one. You can make 7 different size bows with ease and how I ever made bows without one I'll never know.

Until next time start making those cards. Holidays are coming faster than you think. Thanks for stopping by.
