On yesterday’s card I all the colors in the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (DSP) except Merry Merlot. On today’s card I used all the colors except Soft Suede. Share some holiday happiness with this simple card that would be easy to make a lot of for all your family and friends this holiday season.
Here’s what I made:
I’m not good at doing the little swirl of thread behind an element on a card. I keep thinking that I’ll get better, but so far that hasn’t happened. So I hope you can imagine this card either without the mess of thread, or with a nice looking swirt of thread.
Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Merry Merlot card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
- Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/2″ x 4″ (white background)
- Merry Merlot CS layer cut to 5-1/2″ x 2-1/4″
- DSP cut to 5-1/2″ x 2″ (deer)
- Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card
Stamped with the Peaceful Noel stamp set:
- sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:
- a scrap of Merry Merlot CS
Assembled the holiday happiness card:
- burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
- larger DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
- Merry Merlot CS layer glued onto the larger DSP layer
- smaller DSP layer glued onto the Merry Merlot CS layer
- sentiment oval glued onto the Merry Merlot CS oval
- Copper Metallic Thread adhered to the back of the Merry Merlot CS oval using Tear & Tape
- ovals adhered onto the card front using Tear & Tape
- Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
