Sending love at Christmas

My day to post at
if you are short on time or ideas
this is the place to go
daily postings from the most amazing
designers you won't be disappointed if you
hop on over for a peek 
only 21 days till Christmas
Three weeks will be mass producing this card
for family and Friends

Started with
"Very Merry"

This card is really pretty easy to make
but is really beautiful

first start with two
of the same images
I used
added some glossy accents and chunky glitter  
Stampin Up Delightful Decorations stamp set & Ornament Punch
this is a retired set but you can
find it on Ebay
next I mounted them back to back
over a piece of gold DCM
Metallic thread
I found this at AC Moore
next to the embroidery floss

next cut a mat an adhere that to your card base
with repositional adhesive
this needs to be a side folding card
make sure this is centered
I did use a some painter's tape to hold the
die down make sure to press the tape on
your clothes first to take some of the tackiness
off the tape
run this through you die cutting machine
save the extra pieces I will show a card
I made with these in an upcoming post
remove the top mat from the card base
center the ornament in the window
align the top mat over the card base
 the magic of the card is when you
open it the ornament spins back
and forth
On the inside of the card
I used TH tea die ink on a pierced rectangle
there a little space and the top
and at the bottom to
hand write a personal
to finish the card
 some diamond stickles
and McGill Pine Branch punch
a button and a bow

"May Peace be your gift at Christmas
and your blessing all year through! "
