A Punny Christmas Card

The idea for this card popped in my head when I was going to sleep a couple nights ago, and I'm glad that I remembered it when I woke up! It might be too subtle for some folks; my own hubby didn't get it at first, even though it was RIGHT THERE in plain sight! He said, "I was trying to figure out the significance of the missing L."

Smiley from Millan.Net

It keeps getting funnier, every single time I see it! (Name that movie.) The Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder is so sparkly, but I had a hard time capturing it's beauty. This was my first attempt.

Really didn't do it justice at all, so I tried holding it in the sunlight. Better, but still not as pretty as real life.

Oh well, you'll just have to trust me on this one. It's awesome! And funny. And sparkly.

Here's the "How To"
 Bell: Whisper White 2" x 2-1/2"
 Pine branches: Emerald Envy 3" x 4"
 Base for DSP: Whisper White 4-1/8" x 5-3/8"
 DSP: Presents & Pinecones 1-1/8" x 5-3/8" and 2-5/8" x 5-3/8"
 Red Glimmer Paper 2" x 5-3/8"
 Card base: Cherry Cobbler 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored and folded at 4-1/4"
  1. Adhere DSP to white base, leaving a gap between. Stamp the alphabet (minus the "L") in Basic Black.
  2. Cut two 3/16" strips from long side of glimmer paper. Adhere above and below alphabet on edges of DSP.
  3. Punch 1" circle from glimmer paper and set aside. Die cut NOEL from remaining glimmer paper, cut off narrow base and adhere at top of upper glimmer strip with liquid glue.
  4. Adhere all to card base.
  5. Stamp and color bell. Punch with bell punch. If desired, use a VersaMarker pen (retired, but available at hobby stores and online) on stripes with Real Red Glitter embossing powder and heat with heat tool.
  6. Die cut pine branches from Emerald Envy cardstock. Adhere 1" red glimmer circle to card base. Layer pine branches on top (trim longest one to fit) and attach with liquid glue.
  7. Tie a bow with four lengths of baker's twine, two of each color. Adhere with glue dot to top of bell, then glue bell over pine branches.
