For today’s cards, I used the Sweetest Time Bundle (Sweetest Time stamp set and Sweetest Border Dies) to make just the sweetest Bermuda Bay & Granny Apple Green Christmas holiday card. These may not seem like very traditional Christmas colors, but I think they work, don’t you? I got my inspiration from a card on page 73 of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog.

Here’s what I made:

I made two different cards. They have different sentiments, and the holly leaves and pine sprigs are colored differently. Which do you like better?

Here’s how I made the Sweetest Bermuda Bay & Granny Apple Green card:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White Thick CS layer cut to 5-1/2″ x 3″

Stamped with the Sweetest Time stamp set:

  • sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS (I used a different sentiment on each of the two cards. I used the same color ink, and the same die to cut both.)
  • candles in Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • candle flames in So Saffron ink
  • NOTE: On one I stamped the flames on the same CS as the candles, then fussy cut around them. On the other one, I fussy cut only the candles and adhered them onto the card, then stamped the flames above them, which I found to be much easier.

Cut using the Sweetest Borders Dies:

  • the Whisper White Thick CS layer using the holly border die
  • 2 holly leaves and a pine sprig from a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS

Cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies:

  • sentiment

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • the 3 candles

Colored using Sponge Daubers:

  • all die cuts in Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green inks
  • NOTE: I made two cards. On one I colored all the holly in Bermuda Bay and the pine sprigs in Granny Apple Green. On the other one I did the opposite.

Colored using a Stampin’ Blends Marker:

  • white ribbon in Light Bermuda Bay

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • ribbon adhered onto the layer using Stampin’ Seal+, wrapping the ends around to the back of the layer
  • 3 candles glued onto the front of the card base, overlapping them slightly
  • die cut holly layer glued onto the front of the card base, over the candles, and lining up the bottom edges
  • sentiment glued over the holly layer, hiding the bottoms of the candle (On one I glued the sentiment, and on the other one I adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.)
  • individual holly leaves and pine sprig glued onto the sentiment
