Makeover Monday Challenge #7

Hello everyone! I hope your week has been fabulous! This is a busy time for all of us, so I will keep my post brief. This week, Andrea was inspired by the very talented Maile Belles. Click HERE to see the post featuring Maile and Andrea's lovely cards.

Here is my take on the Challenge.

card stock: Kraft(Papertrey Ink) my last full sheet!
patterned papers: Noel Collection(Bo Bunny)
glitter: Crystal Fine(Martha Stewart Crafts)
gold cord: Michael's

I was really inspired by the ornaments the ladies used on their cards. I don't have any large ornament stamps, but I knew I had this paper with these gorgeous ornaments printed on it. Sooo...All I had to do was figure out HOW to incorporate them into a card. This was part of a 12 x 12 sheet of paper. There is no stamping on my card. I used patterned papers from Bo Bunny's Noel Collection. Armed with my micro tip scissors, I got busy with a bit of fussy cutting.  First, I used the corners of the  focal paper as a template, drawing around it with a pencil, and then cutting the corners of my red paper and card stock to match. I cut the greeting from another piece of paper from the collection. I went around the edges with glitter and popped it up with foam squares. I also added a thin line of glitter to the edge of the red paper, and I wish you could see the sparkle! Then, I tied some gold cord into bows and adhered them with mini glue dots. Easy Peasy! That is something I really like about being able to purchase a Collection pack. They may seem pricey at first, but there is so much that can be done with them and all the papers coordinate beautifully. 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today! Make it a good one!

Barb, your card is stunning! No stamping! I can see we don't always have to use our stamps to make a beautiful card. I love how you popped your sentiment and the corners on your card are perfect.
