Today, I wanted to share the new Close To My Heart October Special: Holiday Sparkle. Spread some card making cheer with October’s Holiday Sparkle special and the exclusive Holiday Sparkle Cut Above card kit.
The kit contains enough materials to make 12 5″x7″ shaker cards, 6 each of two designs, including pre-printed card bases, envelopes, die-cuts, stickers, sequins, shaker window foam and acetate and instructions.
The kit is complete by itself, however, there is a really beautiful sentiment stamp set called “Love with All the Trimmings”, that I used to stamp the inside of the cards.
Here is a look into what is included with the kit:
The cards went together very easily. It makes a great project for those who want to make quick Christmas cards, or for children wanting to make cards for the holidays. Below, I show how I created one of each design:
There are even stickers to jazz up the envelopes. It took about an hour to make all 12 cards. Additional supplies I used in addition to the card kit are:
“Love with All the Trimmings” (CC10188) Stamp Set, Ruby Red Ink (. ), Fern Ink (. ), glue, and bone folder.
It was a nice, quick and easy project and the cards turned out pretty, cheerful and full of sparkle.
