Glittersilk “JOY”Card

When I saw the gorgeous leaf vine May Arts ribbon, I knew I wanted to do something elegant with it. I paired it up with some Core’dinations Glittersilk Cardstock- Glittersilk is my go-to for “special” projects. I love glitter! Especially when it doesn’t flake off and cover everything that it shouldn’t!

Joy-card-Coredinations“JOY” Card Supplies:

1

Step 1: Trim and fold Core’dination Glittersilk Cardstock into an A2 sized card base.

Step 2: Trim May Arts Burlap Stripe ribbon to fit the front of the card. Cut bottom end into a pennant shape. Adhere to card base.

Step 3: Loop May Arts Leaves Ribbon into a wreath. Adhere to card over the top of the burlap ribbon. Arrange leaves as desired using small glue dots.

Step 4: Tie a bow from May Arts checkered ribbon, and adhere to top of wreath using a glue dot.

Step 5: Computer generate “JOY” using red printer ink on Snowflake cardstock. Cut into tag shape and adhere to card.

3I think the glittersilk cardstock paired perfectly with the dainty leaves, and the texture of the burlap ribbon.

A beautiful holiday card that will bring “JOY” to someone- (if I decide to let it go, and give it away!)

To make this project follow these steps.

Step 3: Using your Sand It Gadget, sand your panels that form the top of the ornament to show off that lovely embossing.  Don’t forget yo use your Dust Buddy to clean-up the dust!

Vintage-Ornament-Step3

Step 4: Thread through the hole on top, the ribbon or twine you want to use to hang the ornament.  Hint:  If you do not want to see the knot, pass the ribbon or twine from the top down, tie your knot and then the know will be hidden in the top of the ornament.   Once that is complete you can tie closed both the top and bottom of the largest piece of the ornament.  It is good to have an extra hand with this part.  Once you are finished with and the ribbon and twine you can start decorating!
