Last Minute Christmas Ideas......

Hi Die~Namites Dies Fans....
All week long our AMAZING DT will be 
sharing with you their 
Last Minute Christmas Ideas!

I am going to tell on myself here....
I don't plan very well when it comes to
my Christmas Cards.
This year, I wanted to create an
EASY card but one that reflected my creative self.
(sometimes Easy and Creative shouldn't be used in the same sentence)

This is the card I came up with!

The inspiration for my card is this month's

I began by die~cutting the Elegant Flake Die
in the front of my card, 8" x 5.25".

I then cut a piece of CCB Kraft Cardstock
4" x 5.25" and adhered it to the front of my card.

When dry, I placed the diecut image back in it's "hole"
and applied an iridescent acrylic paint through
the new "stencil" with a stencil brush!

Don't be concerned if you get the paint on the
face of the card!

I then distrezz the edges of my card.

I then spritzed the front of the card with
Tattered Angels ~ Frost ~ Glimmer Mist.
(see how the overflow paint shows up??)

I then stamped with my Viva Las VegaStamps,
using StazOn ink.

I colored a piece of seam binding with
Tattered Angels ~ Frost ~ Glimmer Mist, and 
tied it in a bow.

I then adhered the bow to the face of my card.

I hope you enjoyed my Easy yet Creative
Last minute Christmas cards....

2 people with be getting cards from me this year!
