Welcome back. Today I thought I would share a card that my downline, Amanda Farlinger, did for a recent swap at one of our team meetings. I haven't had a chance to photograph it yet, but I did a version of this for a recent class too.
One of the things that I really love about this card is that it uses a non-Christmas stampset. I love when a stampset is versatile and can be used for many different occasions!
A couple quick tips for this one:
- Fine tip glue is the only way to go for attaching "Jolly". Seriously. Every time we use this in a class, people end up buying it. It's that good. But a couple quick things about it: never squeeze the bottle--it's pretty runny and will run naturally out of the fine tip and you can just add dots of the glue to the back; immediately put the thin needle back into the jar so that the applicator doesn't get gummed up; when you pull the lid off, make sure the black applicator isn't attached (it's a tight fit and often comes off with the lid)
- You can use less ribbon by not running it all around the panel. Instead attach with Tear Tape!
- Instead of keep the greeting calm, experiment a bit with other colours of cardstock. I really loved the way Early Espresso looked too!
