Clean and Simple Holiday Cards

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that everyone will have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. I know that I will enjoy every minute I can with mine. We are so thankful this year especially for the addition of our beautiful granddaughter, Ellie. She is truly a joy!

Our Dreamweaver Stencil November challenge of Clean and Simple Holiday cards continues this week. There are so many great ideas for easy Holiday cards, check out mine then hop on over to the other team member blogs for more!

LL589 - Musical Christmas
This card uses the Double Glitter technique with only two colors of glitter and the beautiful Musical Christmas stencil (LL589). Here are the quick, easy steps:
  • Attach a piece of double sided mounting paper to a mat of blue cardstock
  • Apply Hawaiian Coconut Soap to the back of the stencil
  • Use a 3/4" stencil brush to brush away any flakes of soap from the openings or surface of the stencil
  • Remove the release paper from the mounting paper to expose the sticky surface
  • Place the stencil, soap side down, on the sticky paper
  • Tap stencil in place with the end of the brush
  • Sprinkle the exposed sticky surface with Art Glitter Royal Wink Ultrafine glitter
  • Press the glitter firmly to the sticky paper and brush away any extra
  • Turn the glittered image face down on the table and carefully pull the paper off the stencil being sure to keep the stencil flat on the table
  • Sprinkle the exposed sticky background with Art Glitter Crystal Ultrafine glitter, brush away any extra glitter
  • Mount on a layer of white cardstock
  • Use foam tape to apply it to the front of a card covered with decorative paper
This technique is so easy and always creates a WOW reaction. Try it!

Happy Creating,
