Mingle All The Way – 2nd Christmas Card for Hero Hugs

P1020131

I am working on the rest of my cards for my Hero Hugs Christmas card making event on October 19th (cards for the deployed men and women in the military).  For this event, I am receiving partial sponsorship from Thrivent Financial, and I’ll share more about that on Friday.  If you missed the first card, view it here.  Because I have both experienced and inexperienced stampers help, I make the cards simple, so everyone can produce an aesthetically appealing card and enjoy the process.  For this card, I chose to make it contemporary and fun.

I taped the Real Red Woven Satin Ribbon to the back of the Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) with plain Scotch tape and then used Fast Fuse to adhere that to the Whisper White card base.  For the event, I will provide Scotch double sided tape, because that’s easier for most, but if you attend, and are experienced with Fast Fuse, I will be happy to let you use that while you are here. We need to use a strong adhesive like Fast Fuze or Scotch double sided tape, so the materials hold together in a variety of climates.  Unfortunatley, this is not the time for the easy to use “Snail” adhesive.

The focal sentiment uses the Mingle All The Way set, stamped in Real Red ink, and I cut the Basic Black mat with the Starburst Framelit.  I will actually use up retired DSP to make most of the cards (see above), before switching to my current stock.  If you still have the retired DSP, you can make this card.  Just use Very Vanilla with the retired DSP, instead of Whisper White.  Other than that, it is made exactly the same.

My next four cards will all focus on the designs I’m having volunteers make for Hero Hugs, so for anyone looking for quick and easy cards, or just cards you can make en masse, without stress, you will appreciate these posts.

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.  To view my class list or purchase anything current you have seen, go to Stampin’ Bon.
