For the Rest of Us…

Between my mom and a coworker of mine, I had no choice but to make a couple of Festivus cards this holiday season!

I wanted to keep it simple, so I took a full sheet of red cardstock and, using the same technique as I used for my Trip to Stars Hollow, stamped out a variety of the images and sentiments from Ink Road Stamps’ Serenity Now set in watermark ink. to create a worthy background.

I ended up losing 2 of the quarter sheets to attempts at heat embossing the Festivus pole directly to the background (even after drying thoroughly with my heat gun and waiting 48 hours, I couldn’t get a clean pole – ha!)

At that point, knowing I had 2 people to make these cards for, I resigned myself to stamping and embossing the Festivus pole and sentiment onto thick white cardstock and cutting them out.

With a little matting, these cards came together for a fun way to celebrate the season!
