Who ISN’T in a flurry of a hurry this time of year? Anyone who celebrates Christmas knows that while we love the holidays, it’s one of the most hectic times of the year, filled with parties, traditions, gift buying, baking and a whole slew of other tasks we undertake to make Christmas special.
This month the Dream Team are all about the Quick and Cute...whether it be cards, gifts, wrapping, or tags...the Design Team has sleigh-loads of time-saving ideas for you to make the season just a little less stressful! Play along by posting your creations using the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, (and at the bottom of this post) for a chance to win the stencil of your choice, and a possible bonus stencil for using Dreamweaver products in your Quick and Cute project!
This card was really quick to put together, with a minimum of supplies too. A few strips of patterned paper, a vellum sentiment and a foil die cut.
I used the Nested Ornaments Die from Dreamweaver Stencils to die cut a shiny metal foil ornament, which I thought went perfectly with my vellum quote. I could have scored fun designs into the foil ornament, but I was trying to be quick, so I opted to leave it plain. To top off the ornament, I used a bit of May Arts ribbon tied in a itty-bitty bow.
I layered the vellum quote over the base angel patterned paper and a layer of paper cut with a scalloped edge and to hid the adhesive behind the vellum, I use a thin strip of the same foil I used for the ornament. This card was done in a jiff, and I’m pleased with the results.
Now, let’s see how the rest of the Dreamweaver team is making good use of their limited time and what quick and cute ideas they have:
