I used the Sweetest Borders Dies and Sweetest Time stamp set along with ribbon and pearls to make this sweet holiday card. I used Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam instead of the more traditional red and darker green, for a subtler nod to the holidays. It also just happens to be one of my favorite color combos.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Petal Pink card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Soft Sea Foam CS layer cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 4-1/4″ x 1-1/2″
  • Soft Sea Foam CS layer cut to 4″ x 1-1/4″
  • Petal Pink CS layer cut to 3-3/4″ x 1″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 3-1/2″ x 3/4″  for the sentiment
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Sweetest Time stamp set:

  • sentiment in Soft Sea Foam ink onto the smallest Whisper White CS strip
  • holly leaves in Soft Sea Foam ink, and berries in Petal Pink ink, onto the Whisper White CS for the inside

Cut using the Sweetest Borders Dies:

  • bottom edge of the largest Soft Sea Foam CS layer using the holly border die
  • NOTE: I kept the two largest holly berry circles that came out of the die cut

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • ribbon adhered onto the top part of the die cut Soft Sea Foam CS layer using Stampin’ Seal +, wrapping the ends around to the back
  • die cut Soft Sea Foam CS layer glued onto the front of the card base, lining up the top edges
  • 2 saved Soft Sea Foam CS circles glued into their holes in the center of the die cut area
  • sentiment glued onto the Petal Pink CS layer
  • Petal Pink CS layer glued onto the small Soft Sea Foam CS layer
  • small Soft Sea Foam CS layer glued onto the larger Whisper White CS layer
  • larger Whisper White CS layer adhered onto the die cut Soft Sea Foam CS layer, over the ribbon, using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • a second piece of ribbon tied in a bow around the first ribbon, to the left of the sentiment
  • pearls applied over the “berries” in the die cut. I used 5 small, 10 medium, and 2 large pearls. The 2 large ones are on the filled in circles. You could leave out the saved circles, and let the 2 large pearls have a Petal Pink ring around them.
  • Whisper White CS with stamped holly glued onto the inside of the card base

 

Here you can see where I glued the two largest circles back in the holes for the two largest pearls:Sweetest Time Bundle (Sweetest Time stamp set and Sweetest Borders Dies) #stampcandy #stampinup #handmadecards
