How many days until Christmas?
Do you know its only 71 days until Christmas…
Wow! Its happening too quick and I haven’t started my shopping yet!
At least I have my Christmas cards started…
I love how this card turned out…I love the colours and texture…it has a very rich feel to it.
In the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Holiday Catalogue, Stampin’ Up! have given us a very versatile collection of stamps, Thinlits and Designer Series Paper in the
Merry Little Christmas Suite it starts on page 10 and goes over 4 pages.
I really think this is one of the major highlights to this catalogue.
This stamp set is great for making Christmas tags for all the wonderful gifts you will be handing out on Christmas Morning…but it is also can be used for cards as well. As I have used it.
This is a simple card and one that doesn’t take long to put together..
So here’s how I made it…
You will require a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock for card base – 14.5 x 21 cm score at 10.5 along the long edge
Another piece of Cherry Cobbler for card front – 9.5 x 13.5cm
Old Olive for matting – 10 x 14cm
Old Olive and Black check from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series paper 144621 – 5 x 10..5cm,
White with black music notes from the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper 144623 – 2.5 x 15cm, punch out the banner ends using Stampin’ Up! Banner Punch on both Designer Series Papers
On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock stamp the “Let it Snow” image in Old Olive Ink and then punch out using the Everyday Label Punch from the Bundle
Colour a small amount of Embossing paste with 2 drops of Old Olive Re-Inker and using the Diamond pattern mask spread the coloured Embossing Paste across the card front. Let dry.
Adhere the Merry Music Specialty DSP to card front folding approx 1.5 – 2cm over the back.
Attach the Cherry Cobbler card front to Old Olive mat and adhere to front of card with either Snail or Multi Purpose Glue.
