Now there’s been the odd time where a product that normally isn’t in my repertoire inspires me. Stickers and rub-ons are such an example.
Rub-ons and I have a love/hate relationship and I won’t get into that until my therapist says its okay to talk about them! lol
Stickers are somewhat agreeable with me (although Peg teases me about them!) but I don’t often find ones that stand out.
So when I first saw these holiday sentiment stickers by Mrs.Grossman, I was all over them! I just love the classy, sophisticated, elegant script font in red foil accents! This was no ordinary sticker but for $1.99 (at Classic) for 3 was a good price for something of this caliber.
I immediately grabbed a couple and incorporated into a holiday simply stunning card class about a year and a half ago. When I passed by the rolls at Classic last week, I thought it was time to revisit these because there was a whole bunch on the shelf. In addition they’re absolutely perfect for Easy Peasy Christmas cards! I’m not sure if everyone knew their true stickalicious value when walking by these.
Perhaps I shouldn’t have said anything so I could scoop them all up for myself!! hahaha….oh but you know I wouldn’t do that to you and plus I can’t resist to share!
The card face measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.
-Stick the sentiment sticker on a piece of white cardstock measuring 2 1/4 x 4″
-Cut a piece of red foil cardstock to measure 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 (you can of course use green, gold, silver foil cardstock too)
Now since only a 1/4″ border is seen of the foil cardstock, what I like to do is die cut out the foil to use another day. As long as I still have a 1/4″ around the edge, it’s all good! ;) I used Spellbinders, Labels 25.
Tip: Be careful when cutting out foil and foil cardstock on your diecut machine as the “cuts” on your plastic cutting mats will imprint onto the foil. I use a piece of card stock to protect the foil surface.
As you can see below, I still have a 1/4″ red foil border around the sentiment and the recipient of this card will never know that’s there’s a hole in the foil. (just don’t them, okay?? lol)
-Adhere pieces together
-Add bling! (optional)
Love, love, love it!! Talk about totally EASY PEASY! (In the time to do this post Thursday evening after a long day at work, I whipped off 6 of them!) If I can do it, so can you!! You’d have all your cards done in no time at all.
And not only do I have 6 cards made but I also have these 6 pieces of foil card stock to use in another project!
