Good Morning Everyone
Happy Handy Hippo Monday to you .. .. I hope your weekend was good!
Christmas is looming ever and ever closer and if you are anything like me Christmas card production is having to become simpler and quicker as time just disappears amidst all the other preparations that are needed in the run up to Christmas.
So I thought that today I would share with you one of the quickest Christmas cards I have made yet this year.
All this took was as bit of matting and layering and a bit of "tickling" with a glue pen and some glitter! Simples!!!!
Below you can find the Handy Hippo magic button .. .. and if you click on it you can see all the lovely goodies I used to make this little creation. Everything I have used has been automatically added to a shopping basket and as always you can remove anything you do not need (or add anything else you can't resist).
There were actually three stamps in this little stamp set. The gorgeous Christmas tree, the cool sentiment and then a little present too.
I thought I would show you another way of using your glitter along with the little present stamp .. .. this time to make a little gift tag to go alongside the Christmas card.
|I made a little opening gift tag from some |
scrap card and added a line of
Ultra High Adhesion Tape
|Pull the plastic coating off the adhesive tape|
and sprinkle your glitter over the sticky line
|Press the glitter firmly onto the tape |
with your fingers.
|Knock all the spare glitter off your work |
onto some scrap paper so you can return the
glitter to its storage tub.
|I also used my|
Quickie Glue Pen
for adding the glitter to the heart
and the present .. .. .. as well as the tree
on my main project.
So here are my two projects side by side .. .. all ready for someone to receive a matching card and gift tag on their present at Christmas.
I feel sure people must by now be a bit fed up of seeing Christmas projects so next week it is going to be "one for the boys" .. .. .. just for a change.
Have a really good week!
and all the lovely friendly people at Handy Hippo
