And since you are here, I put together another REAL QUICK card inspired by Karen Walker who posted one on Scrap-Mart 2011 Holiday Blog Hop Day 4 (yesterday!) - her last card.

Joy by Margie Higuchi
Supplies Chalkstock, Notecard, Cord, Canvas Mini Star, Cord: Canvas Corp; Sticker: October Afternoon (Holiday Style Collection); Die: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (S4-287 Fanciful Holiday); Pearl: Prima; Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever); Other: Foam

These are the supplies I gathered to put together my card. I wrapped Canvas Corp red cord around the bottom half of the notecard and secured it by double knotting it.

Next, I placed the canvas mini star using ScraPerfect The Best Glue Ever because it is...the best, that is! It adheres to many surfaces and you will see below what other surfaces I used it on.

I cut and embossed the S4-287 Fanciful Holiday deer with chalkstock in my Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Die Cutting Machine - so beautiful! Then I added a red pearl to its nose = PERFECT!

Taking out the Best Glue Ever, I placed two layers of scrap foam from my stash in different areas of the die cut. I realized AFTER taking the picture one piece of foam decided to join another was fixed! LOL!

After placing the die cut on the canvas star, I added October Afternoon's JOY sticker and it's ready for mailing!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great Friday!!
