Feminine Fridays Week #15

Now that Halloween is over and we've received a bit of snow I thought I would start on Christmas Cards. This week features a card made with several punches and a gate fold.

I don't have any of the current designer Christmas patterns so I used a piece from a retired collection.  The base is Real Red, the green is Old Olive. Punches used were the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch, Two Step Bird Extra Large, just the wings, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Extra Large, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Extra Large, and the Circle Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  On that circle I added some jewels from the Basic Jewels Rhinestones.

For the inside:

I mixed some Real Red Ink with White Shimmer Paint, applied with a Sponge Dauber using the leaves from the Vintage Frames Decor Stencil. With the same mixture stamped the sentiment from the Occasional Quotes Hostess Set.

Oh, and to keep the card closed, I used a Velcro dot.

Now Miss Regina, your mission should you choose to accept it :-) is to use a gate fold with a stencil. 

It's going to be awesome, I guarantee it!

See ya next week.
