Pokémon Pokéballs Christmas Card

When I was making my swaps for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event that I went to in Telford earlier this month I used the Jolly Hat Builder Punch to make Christmas hats for my UPS teddy bears.  

Whilst putting together 60 hats I had a ‘light bulb moment’ about Pokémon Pokéballs with Santa hats. I told my hubby and daughter about my mad idea and they both said “Do it.”

I have been making Christmas cards for quite a while and I really needed a break from making ‘sensible’ cards so I researched the different Pokéballs and went into my craftroom to have a play.

I used a 1-1/4″ circle punch for the first Pokéball I made but when I added the Christmas hat the Pokéball looked too small.  I punched a 1-1/2″ circle out of Whisper White cardstock and placed the Christmas hat on it and it looked much better.   

I liked it so much that I wanted to make a Pokémon Pokéballs Christmas Card because I knew the perfect person who would really appreciate it. I grabbed some scraps of Thick Whisper White, Garden Green and Real Red cardstock and made some more Pokéballs.

My son T.J. is 27 and he loves Pokémon so I added some red ribbon to the Pokéballs so that he can remove them from the card and hang them on his Christmas Tree.  

I used the Softly Falling embossing folder to emboss a 6″ square of Whisper White cardstock and adhered this to the cardbase with dimensionals. 

I hope you like my card, I really enjoyed making it and it didn’t take very long to make. Maybe you will give it a try too.
