5 Days of Christmas Cards - Day 1

So we went into Michael's last night because I needed some more adhesive stickers, and they were having "Dollar Days".  Since my lovely hubby gave me a $50 gift card for Christmas, I took the opportunity to look for some treasures.  There was an amazing clearance on all Christmas product, so I stocked up on some goodies.  And used them all today. :D  When else can you get 50 sheets of Christmas letterhead for 84 cents?  Buying clearance stuff for next year definitely has it's benefits!  Anyway, onto the card.  The front of this card was given to me last year by my friend Jen from Capernwray.  I embellished it with some ornament stickers, which I really like cuz they add a 3D effect.

For the body of the card, I used some red paper which I had made a photocopy error on.  I folded it and glued it together so the mistakes are hidden :)  I covered the excess card from the front with some embossed bronzy golden paper and some black ribbon.  Today I discovered craft glue.  I had been hesitant to use it as I wasn't sure how good it was going to be, but I'm really impressed with this stuff.  It sticks very, very well.  I'll probably use it to attach ribbon most of the time.  The stamps are from my Mom (Stampin' Up brand), and the sticker is from Michael's.  See you tomorrow for card #2!  JEM
