Christmas Happiness to You and Yours

I finally got around to using the Christmas Happiness stamp set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, and it’s a beauty. It has images of mistletoe, pine cones, pine sprig, and Christmas lights, plus some very sweet sentiments. For today’s card, I used the sprig and lights and one of the sentiments. I added a special touch by ruching some Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon on the front of the card. At first I tried to make it look uneven, but it looked very even, so I tried to continue making it look even, then it started getting wonky. Tell me what you think.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Real Red card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Tranquil Tide CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″ (2 pieces: one for the top layer and one for the inside)

Stamped with the Christmas Happiness stamp set:

  • sprig in Tranquil Tide ink onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • light sockets in Garden Green ink onto the sprig
  • light bulbs filled in with Real Red, Pacific Point, and Daffodil Delight inks
  • sentiment in Real Red ink to the left of the sprig

 Assembled the card:

  • ribbon adhered to the Whisper White CS layer using Fast Fuse – put a line of adhesive on the CS; adhered the ribbon, making waves with my fingers to create the ruched effect; wrapped the ends around to the back of the CS and secured with Fast Fuse (Tear & Tape works well for this technique, too.)
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Tranquil Tide CS layer
  • Tranquil Tide CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • second piece of Whisper White CS glued to the inside of the card base
