Christmas Magic

Christmas is fast approaching and there is so much to do!!  This month, the Dreamweaver Design Team are posting projects with "Holidays in a Hurry" as the theme.   Here is an idea of getting caught up with cards in a hurry.  I first of all cut a piece of white card stock 3 1/2" x 8" and placed the Poinsettia stencil in the middle of the paper.  Then I taped all four sides and colored the flower with stencil brushes and Distress Inks.  I used Barn Door and Peeled Paint Distress Inks.  Then I removed the tape.  Cut the paper in the middle at 4", then cut in half the long way 1 3/4".  Now you have four pieces with poinsettias on them.  Use the ScorBuddy and ScorBug to add the pierced edges.  Punch out a border to dress the card up a bit.  It only takes about 15 minutes and you have four cards complete!  Check out more projects in a hurry starting with:
