Hambly Transparency Christmas Card Tutorial

About a month ago a made a set of cards to donate to the Festival of Trees, a yearly fundraiser for the Primary Children's Hospital. It was one of my favorite cards I have made using Hambly transparencies and I wanted to share how it was made here.

These cards were easy to make a bunch of in a short time and looked beautiful when bundled together and tied up in a big white tulle bow. They would make a wonderful gift as well!

Start by picking your card stock and ribbon colors, I wanted to have a bright and fun combination that was a little different than the traditional so I went with an lighter green and vibrant pink.

Trim out a panel of the deer, cut the card stock to the same size.

Then stitch around the left, top and right edges.

I then put in two colors of glitter, a pretty light pink and a white by Doodlebug.

The bottom was then stitched closed to create a shaker panel.

Tie the ribbon around, mine is a delicious Midori pink bias, and then adhere to the card base with dimensional foam adhesive.

I did stamp a beautiful Graphic 45 greeting in black ink on the inside of the card to finish it off.
