Some Christmas Lane Cards

Here is my favorite card from my Christmas Lane Class.  And, as my friends will tell you, the most time-consuming :)
Stamp Set: Pennant Parade (Merry), Bright Hope
Paper: Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin Kit, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso marker
Ribbon: Ruffled Lucky Limeade ribbon
Tools: Dotted Scallop ribbon border punch, Stocking Builder Punch, jewelry punch, 1/16" hole punch, square punch for ends of banner, corner rounder
Accessories: glue dots, baker's twine, mini jingle bells, glue dots, sticky strip, dimensionals

Card tips:  Here is a tutorial from Mary Fish on using the square punch to make pennant banners.  Stamp your "merry" on a scrap of white and then center it in the jewelry tag punch before punching it out.  It will center it everytime.  I did punch a 1/16" hole in the end of the jewelry tag to tie the baker's twine through.  Then I used a glue dot to put the jingle bells right below them.  For the ribbon, put a piece of sticky strip all the way across the card.  Lay your ribbon down until you get past the last stocking and then just start manipulating your ribbon.  Watch Mary here to get a better idea.   Hopefull you can see some small scallops on top and bottom of the strip of DSP.  I used our dotted ribbon border punch and just cut it down the middle to make 2 scallops and glued them behind the dsp.

Very cute, but looks like lots of cutting and piecing. But was worth it in the end. Edna

Very fun card but yes it does looks as though it takes a bit of time. Love the tips and especially only scruntching the last part of the ribbon! TFS!
