I have had this idea in my head for several weeks now, and finally had time to put it down on card stock. I am quite sure that someone over on Splitcoast Stampers already had the same idea, it is not a complicated one. I ran a piece of Stampin Up Real Red card stock through my Cuttlebug machine with the Stampin Up "Petals a Plenty" embossing folder, then punched out circles of it with a 1-1/4" circle punch. If you put 1/4 of a piece from a sheet of 8-1/2"X11" card stock through with your embossing folder, you can easily punch out 6 of these cute x-mas balls, and make six Christmas cards in a flash. I chose to paint the raised dots on each circle with some of the Shimmer paint from the holiday mini catalog, but they look great plain as well. The bow was made with some gold ribbon by American Crafts. Please Stampin Up bring back the metallic ribbon! I miss it so! Gotta check my stash and see if I have any hiding somewhere.
Anyways, I need to run, we have Trick or Treaters coming to beg for candy at 6pm tonight. I hope you enjoyed my quick, clean and simple card. Oh, the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Phew! Until next time...............Blessings, Lisa
