Just One More!

I know Christmas Day has gone by but I have one more card to share with you for Dreamweaver Stencils' "Holidays in a Hurry" challenge for this month.  Besides, you may have missed sending a card to someone and you need a quick card to take to a dinner party.  Here's the perfect card:

If you're truly in a hurry, here's what you do:

Tape your stencil down on green cardstock
Paste emboss the stencil with white paste (don't forget to immediately clean your stencil)
Set embossed cardstock aside to dry
Go take your shower, blow dry your hair, put on your make-up, whatever you need to do
Place stencil back over embossed piece and rub on silver Metallic Lustre™, use caution around bow
Remove stencil and color bow with Copic Markers R35, 37 and 39
Trim embossed and colored piece to desired size
Create card base with a tent fold from green cardstock
Trim patterned paper as shown
Adhere all layers

Super fast, super simple, super cute!  Here's what I used to create this card:

Bazzill® Green Cardstock
Teresa Collins™ Christmas Home 6x6 Designer Paper Pad
DecoArt® Metallic Lustre™ in Silver Spark
Copic® Markers R35, 37, 39
Beacon Adhesive® Zip Dry™

You still have time to play along with our monthly challenge so be sure to join us.  Keep in mind, it doesn't have to be a Christmas card, it can be any holiday.  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!  Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!                                                                                                                                                                   Hugs,                                                                                  Lea
