Graphic 45 Twas The Night Before Christmas Card Design

I always love seeing the gorgeous designs from Graphic 45 papers. Their new Christmas themed paper collection is titled "The Night Before Christmas". I'm making some cards for a class that I plan to teach at EASY AS CAT SOUP, a stamp, scrap and mixed media store in Anderson SC. This is the first card. Actually pretty simple and fast to make. I think that people who are making Christmas cards really want something that is not terribly time consuming but also eye catching. For this card the only paper product not from the pad is the card base. That is a Bazill Basics card stock. The colour wasn't labeled on the shelf, but any red that 'goes' with the colours in the card will work. I think a deep green would also go well. It would pop the lighter greens in the paper designs. The bow is made on a new-to-me bowmaker from Craft-debowz. Later, I will be posting cards with some more elaborate bows made on this tool. It is available from Easy As Cat Soup. The glittery trim is  from Starform Glitter Stickers. I love those stickers because they are a fast, easy way to add a lot of zip to a card design,
