Christmas in July with Memory Box and Baby!

PamSparksChristmasRibbonOrnaments2

 

HO HO HO Merry Christmas!  I know, I know… it’s early!  Still…it’ll be nice to have a stash of cards and ideas before the last minute!

Here’s the NEW Memory Box Christmas Ribbon Ornaments die…soon to be HERE!

I broke out the glitter… haha… the Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter HERE works great for this!  It’s not getting all over everything after!  YAY!  THIS would work also… pretty!

I die cut the ornaments with Scor Tape HERE on the right side of the Memory Box card-stocks.  Peeled off the release paper, dumped on glitter, dumped it off and burnished it on with a bone folder (place a piece of scrap paper on top of the glittered piece and rub).  All without getting it all over me!!!

After you have your pieces cut and glittered,  I lay the main piece right side down on the table, then place the pieces in right side down.   I used Scotch tape this time but you could easy use ⅛ th or ¼ th inch scor tape too.

If you’re mounting it with mounting squares like I did,  the scotch tape works because you don’t need the double stick.

If you are adhering the design directly to the card, scor tape would work great instead of scotch tape.
