Pals holiday swap card b

The new Oh What Fun stamp set coordinates with the new Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit (which makes 30 tags!) but it’s perfectly fine on its own. Here I’ve paired it with Merry Moments Designer Series Paper from the annual catalog to make a simple, quick, and fun Christmas card.

For the three banners, I cut strips of DSP 1″ x 4″. I inserted one (green with white ornaments) into the Triple Banner Punch just far enough to cut the notch. I inserted a second one (stripes) all the way into the punch. I inserted the third one (red) all the way in and punched, then pushed it all the way in again and punched. This is how I ended up with three different length banners from three pieces of the same size paper. I glued them directly to the Crumb Cake card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

By the way, after punching the red strip the second time, I ended up with a little chevron piece. Since I made about 30 of these cards, I plan to do something with those little pieces. Stay tuned.

I cut Whisper White card stock with the Circles Collection Framelits, then stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and the accents in Old Olive. With the photopolymer stamps, it was easy to line up the images on the cut circle. I adhered this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the last little touch, I added three Cherry Cobbler Candy Dots to the bottom right corner of the card base.

Pals holiday swap cardThis card was so simple, it only took me about an hour to make 30 of them. I made them assembly line style. First I scored and cut the card bases. Then I cut the DSP strips. Then I punched the banners. Then I cut the circles. Then I laid out the circles and stamped them. Then I glued on the banners. Then I attached the circles. And lastly I stuck on the Candy Dots.

The only new product I used today is the Oh What Fun stamp set (page 5 in the Holiday catalog.)
