This Christmas card is for my hubby. He can be quite the Grinch at Christmas time, which I don't get. I mean, what exactly does he have to get stressed about? Buying all the gifts? Wrapping them? Preparing Holiday meals? Decorating? I do all that! And I still walk around with a big old goofy smile on my face while singing Christmas songs. I think he'll be getting this card the day after Thanksgiving with a friendly note inside ;)
Hilarious, right???! And I'll bet you're still singing the song... I am :)
To make the card base (Grinch's face) I folded 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" Lucky Limeade card stock in half. I die cut it in the Big Shot using the Top Note Bigz Die, making sure that the folded edge did not get cut.
Here's what I used to make the rest of Mr. Grinch...
Cherry Cobbler card stock & Perfect Pennants Bigz Die
Basic Black card stock "nipped" with the teeny postage-stamp punch
So Saffron card stock & 1" Circle Punch
Soft Suede card stock & largest circles in the Owl Builder punch
After adhering all the pieces to the front, I used a Basic Black Marker to draw the mouth. That's it!
Just curious... do you have any Grinches in your family? What do you do to keep them happy... lots of eggnog and wine??? :)
