Friends Make the Season Shine


,√ Whisper White cardstock is the base. The bulbs have a Basic Black layer that measures 5 inches by 2 3/8 and a whisper white layer 4 3/4 by 2 1/8. I don’t normally mention the dimensions of the cut pieces but I fell it is really important to the look of this card. Anything not symmetrical would really stand out.

Start with the electric line for the bulbs, you will want to keep the line close to the top of the cardstock so you have plenty of room for your bulbs. Next I punched out the bulbs from the glimmer paper **Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper as seen here has sold out, I have linked available glimmer paper/foil sheets to this post. You can also color the Sparkle Glimmer Paper with any ink color using a dauber for more versatility.  Alternatively foil sheet bulbs would have a pretty and sophisticted look and don’t overlook regular cardstock which can even be coated in wink of Stella for extra sparkle. **. Yes, I know it seems like we are skipping a step but with the bulbs punched out you can you them to line up where to stamp the bulb base which is the next step. After the bases are stamped then you can adhere the bulbs to the base. MAKE SURE THE INK IS DRY. No smudging here! In my sample I used snail tape but the back of the glimmer paper is slick so I would recommend a glue dot instead. Once all of the bulbs are in place then stamp the bling of the bulb. Don’t worry, there is plenty of room in the curve of the stamp to stamp right over the bulbs plus it helps you line it up.

To put the card together adhere the bulb piece to the basic black to create the boarder and then center it to the top of your card making sure to leave room for the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment in the center of the open space below the bulbs. That’s it, a simple, striking and clean card.
