Deck the Halls ...

Good morning! Ruza here to share a Holiday Card that I made for the Caring Hearts Card Drive.


This is the 6th year for this amazing event! There are over 40 different companies that have donated some pretty amazing prizes, and I'm proud to say that CutCardStock in one of them.

Today's card features cardstock from the Flavours Gourmet Sample Pack along with the Basis Green cardstock and Classic Crest Solar White Cover cardstock.


My card features a Tiddly Inks stamp that I received for Free last year that came with a magazine I purchased, the sentiment (inside and out) comes from a stamp set I recently purchased, and I used a Musical Impression Plate and dies from my stash.


After coloring the image with my Copic Markers I fussy cut her out and put her on the side. I then cut out my Christmas Tree from Basis Green cardstock and the snow drifts from Classic Crest Solar White cardstock.

The cardbase is Smoked Sea Salt (Light Grey) with a Cabernet (Burgundy) panel, and a Myrtle Blueberry panel that I ran thru my Big Shot with my Musical Impression Plate.


I used dimensional tape and Scor-Tape to adhere the tree and snow drifts. Once layered together I applied Faber-Castell Whipped Spackle to create my snow, and set it aside to dry.


While that was drying I created the inside panel, and sentiment for the front of my card. Once done, all that was left to do was add the image and sentiment to the front of my card.


The Flavours Gourmet cardstock is 10% off as part of the Bountiful Saving Sale going on right now.

The Caring Hearts Card Drive is truly an amazing event that I hope you will take some time to read about, and hopefully send off some of your beautiful handmade cards.
