Festive Wishes

Festive Wishes!
It’s Friday – so let’s celebrate. I got a few minutes to paint last night, and here’s what I did! This card is another one of those FUN tent toppers originally designed by Michelle Wooderson (see her blog HERE). The weather is starting to get cooler – so again I have my mind on Christmas cards.

Festive Wishes Penguin Tent Topper:
Card dimensions 5 ½ h x 4 ¼ w

Materials: CS –Black, Desert Sand (CTMH); Paper – Accademia (Fabriano); Ink –Black StazOn, Bashful Blue (SU!); Stamp – Penguins Cube, Christmas Mini Cube, Christmas 1 Word Cube (Sunshine Designs); Punches – Giga Scalloped circle, Mega Circle (Marvvy), waterbrush, Tombow markers, Ribbon – Blue grosgrain (ribbon share - texasjodylynn).

These types of cards are so great for those Giga Scalloped Circle punches that everyone has. The only trick to these cards is to make sure that you glue the topper (my scalloped circle) with only enough sticking up on top of the card, so that it still fits into the regular envelope. To do this – simply lay the card base on top of the envelope you are using before you glue on your topper. Place your topper and make note of how much is to stick up on top, and how much of it you need to put your glue on. Simple. Really!

Until next time, have a great day!
