This year we are staying home and our kids and their families are coming home this year. It makes me very happy that we will be celebrating Christmas at our house and with our family.
One part of the challenge on the Hero Arts blog is making card sets. This set of cards will be entered in the Hero Arts current monthly challenge (December2011A) This is the perfect time for this because this set of cards will be going to my friend for Christmas.
I stamped each white circle with one sentiment per card and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I took distress ink and distress the circle and then stamped over each individual circle with the stamp. (See list of stamps that were used.) The card base for each card measures 4 1/4" x 8 1/2". The card measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 when folded in half.
The circle was cut from a Quickutz Nesting Circle (CC SHAPE 14024) and the outer circle is from Nestabilities Lacey Circles.
The envelopes are made from a 4 3/4 x 6 1/2" envelope. I sealed the envelope and turned it on its side and cut off 1 1/2" of the envelope. I cut out a 2" x 3 3/4" piece of pattern paper and scored it a half inch along the short side and then attached it to the back of the envelope that measures 4 1/2" x 4 3/4".
These cards were lots of fun and very simple to make. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Have a wonderful weekend.The stamps that I used are Hero Arts:
