HOLIDAY CARD MAKING


This year at Ladies Bible Study, we're doing an elective for card-making. Since not all the ladies are stampers, I pre-stamp the appropriate pieces and make kits for them to assemble after they color in the images. This is the one I designed for Thanksgiving using the Pomegranate card stock from Stampin' Up.

First they will crimp just the front edge of the card. Then they will color the main image with markers, attach it to a slightly larger rectangle of pale green and wrap embroidery floss around it, securing the floss on the back. Next, they will stamp the verse and smaller image, color the berries and leaves, punch it out with a circle punch and tie a bow with matching embroidery floss. After taping the rectangular piece to the card, they will attach the "tag" with a pop dot...easy!

I like the unusual colors for this Thanksgiving card--what do you think?

Very nice card! I like the crimp at the bottom. I need to dust mine off and use it now. I'm sure the ladies will love it!
