Hello, crafty friends!
Guest Designer, Lisa here from LisaMensing.com.
Right now, I need all the things to be quick and simple because they are all last-minute! And this card checked off all those boxes for me plus it reminds me of tidy a little package.
To create it I die-cut the word Merry from pattern paper and black cardstock, inlaying the pattern paper in the black cardstock. Trimmed a two-inch strip of the same pattern paper and a two and half-inch piece of the black cardstock with a paper trimmer. I centered the two-inch pattern paper on the black cardstock, adhered it with glue, added two strips of mounting foam to the back of the black cardstock leaving a gap between the two so I could wrap the Totally Red Twine around the cardstock, and tied a knot, to secure it in place. I die-cut a tag, stamped Christmas on the tag with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then tied a neat little bow to hold the tag on. Using mounting foam I adhered the inlaid die-cut word across the card. This is an A2 Kraft card base.
