Bar Mitzfah

Alana was invited to a Bar Mitzfah and I had to come up with a card.  A big shout out  thank  you to my friend Doris who I just knew would have the right stamps.  I used these retired SU stamps to make this card.  I used black, silver and white which were the colors used on the invitation.  Hope you like.

Step 1

Step 1 is to take your cardstock, I used a piece of Real Red on this and open it up. This is a regular A2 size card.  Open up your embossing folder and put the cardstock at your desired stop half way, 3/4's whatever.  Then close the embossing folder then move on to the next step.

Step 2

Place the cardstock and the folder between two cutting pads and then put on top of your platform and run through your Big Shot.  I should have taken a picture of this as well but I hope you get the picture!

Step 3

This is what it will look like when it comes out of the big shot.  On my card I added a few score lines to give it some detail.

Step 4 Jolly Petals a Plenty

Last Step is to put your card together.  I used my brand new Stampin Up set Jolliest time of the year
116584  $20.95 I also used the level 2 hostess set Christmas punch.

Gotta a little punchy today!

Fa  la la la laaaa la la la la!  I can't seem to stop making Christmas cards.  I have way more than I send now but I just love them.  Maybe I will pack up a bunch for my parents and my girls.  This little guy I have seen on SCS and I thought he was really cute.  Others had used a sizzlet for the antlers but since I didn't have the right one I tried out the snowflake punch and it worked fine.  The Petals a plenty embossing folder was used again with the same technique I used in the Cardinal card.  The sentiment was computer generated.
