Today I’m sharing one of the Make & Take projects from last week’s Candy Hearts team meeting. You can see the swap cards from that meeting here. I used the new Merry Patterns stamp set, the one you get with a qualifying order until October 31. Find out more HERE.

The colors for today’s card are from the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Whisper White CS (Thick or regular) cut to 4″ x 3-1/4″

Stamped with the Merry Patterns stamp set:

  • sentiment, outline of candles, and branches in Garden Green ink onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • sentiment and 3 of the candles filled in  with Blushing Bride ink
  • the remaining candles filled in with Lemon Lime Twist ink
  • flames filled in with So Saffron ink
  • optional: stamp “to be jolly” in Garden Green ink on the inside of the card base
  • NOTE: the see through photopolymer stamps make it easy to line up the fill-in stamps with the outline stamps

Assembled the card:

  • stamped layer glued onto the DSP layer
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
