“On the 1st day of SCT’s 12 days of holiday giving, SCT shared with me….a beautiful card from designer Sheri Reguly and a fabulous prize package from Janome Canada, Scrapbook.com and SCT!”
“Hello SCT friends! It’s Sheri Reguly with you today. Thrilled that you’re joining us for Day 1 of our 12 Days Of Holiday Giving event! I have a festive holiday card to share with you featuring two of my very favorite things in the world of cardmaking/scrapbooking…lots of layering, and the color pink!
I turned to Crate Paper’s, Merry Days Collection, for this particular card. I love the beautiful color palette, fun patterns and wide assortment of embellishments to choose from.
After creating the base of my card, I wrapped two widths of white twine across the centre of the strip of the wood grain patterned paper. I then tucked and adhered the die cut doily beneath the twine.
Next, I applied thick adhesive foam to the back of the red tag to create lots of dimension. After adhering the tag to the centre of my card, I topped it with several fun accent pieces from my favorite ephemera pack, including an additional tag, snowflake, and the most adorable pair of pink ice skates.
A sentiment sticker was then added to the bottom right corner of the tag using adhesive foam, and embellished with a pair of puffy sticker mittens. Additional puffy stickers were then added to the ice skates.
A threaded bow, a selection of enamel dots, and a touch of gold added the perfect finishing touches to my card.
Thank you so much for joining us today. Wishing you, and yours, a very happy holiday season! ~ Sheri Reguly
