Festive Friday Blog Hop – Card 18

Welcome to your next stop on the Festive Friday Blog Hop.  You should have just came from Cheryl Lindsay’s blog – Cherlin Ink.

Web cam photo right after I made them all.  Sorry about the crappy photo for some reason the photos I uploaded will not show in blogger.  After four tries I gave up.

Saturday, September 17th I was apart of a on-line card making extravaganza to make cards for our service men and women.  I decided to make Christmas Cards the deadline for Operation Write Home is September 30th.  I given this website Ink It Up! by a friend, which showed how to make 16 cards in an hour.  I decided I so needed to try that — the cards went together really quick once everything was measured out.  The measuring took the most time — measure twice cut once is an important thing to remember when doing this.

Card Design: Amanda Marks
Stamps: I have no idea where they came from.  I got them from a friend 10 years ago.

Paper: The cards are blank 5 1/2″ x 4″ made from whitecard stock. I used 12×12 Miss Elizabeth’s Bright Christmas.  Two green 8 1/2″x11″ card stock.  Two red 8 1/2″x 11″ card stock.  Two white 8 1/2″x11″ card stock.  I followed the template and directions provided on Ink it Up! (I didn’t pay for the complete version — I looked at the photos and guessed.) 


The top Santa card was HOTP Paper — I used Time Holtz Tea Dye Ink Pad around the edges and red card stock – I used glossy accents to embellish the stars.

Colored With: NONE

Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives

Other: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peeled Paint, Staz-on Forrest Green and Blaze Red

  1. Great cards ~ love the One-Sheet Wonder concept. Did that once but only completed 5 of 10 cards as ran out of time. Need to get back to finishing the rest. Anxious to follow this one you referred to. Fun blog hop and always up for candy!
