Giulia Border Joy Holiday Card
by Anne Thompson

I'm continuing my challenge this month to create holiday cards from Memory Box materials I have on hand, not necessarily holiday-themed, and mostly pulling from the Garden Party and Spring 2020 collections.

This is actually the second card I made and my favorite of the two.  

materials used for both cards

I started my cards by die cutting everything first.  I actually cut the Joy Airy Script twice and the Giulia Border four times to have what I needed for the two cards.

Then I made a sandwich for my Big Kick and embossed the Leafy Jumble stencil twice on thin white cardstock.  I used the VersaFine Clair Tulip Red ink direct to paper over the raised leaves to use as the base on the card fronts.

I used Scor-Tape to attach the leafy panel to the front of a white notecard.  I added a strip of white cardstock  1 1/2 X 5 1/4 which I first edged with the Tulip Red ink.  I used Glue Dots under the flowers to attach the red glitter Giulia Border on that white strip.  Then I adhered the Joy Airy Script with a glue pen.

On the inside I added a piece of paper from the Cottage Meadow pad and a white cardstock rectangle.

Then I went back to the front of the card and auditioned a bunch of different ribbons and bows before settling on the red satin bow.

The other card has the fold at the top edge, the embossed and inked leafy panel, and three narrow strips of white cardstock with the Giulia Border on each one.

From the outside it is not obvious that it is a holiday card because...

...the sentiment is on the inside.

Are you thinking Christmas in July?  Have you thought about ways that you might repurpose some of your stamps and dies to create holiday cards?  And have you made and posted anything to this month's Framed! challenge yet?  So many questions...

Happy Crafting!
