Big Merry, Little Christmas

Four very similar cards with the same basic design.
Begin with a computer generated "merry".
It took a little experimenting to get just the right size.
I worked in landscape format with two columns
in Word 2003 and got four "merry"s per sheet of card stock.
The "merry" was then cut out with a
Spellbinders Label die,
then embossed in a Cuttlebugembossing folder.
The "Christmas" is also computer generated.
These were cut out with Spellbinders oval Nestibilities.
Some were layered onto the coordinating scalloped ovals
and others had ink sponged around the edges to make
them stand out slightly from the "merry" label.

The gold card is gift wrap that has been attached with
spray glue to card stock. It was then embossed with
a Cuttlebug folder as was the "merry" label.

The blue backgrounds are K & Company scrapbook paper.
This design has endless possibilities.
My husband has an anniversary card the
has a big "happy" and a small
anniversary. The design is done is black and white.
This design is easy to mass produce and
great fun to give.
