The star of this card is all that beautiful designer series paper! It all comes from the Warmth & Cheer DSP Stack. This is my favorite paper in the holiday catalog, and that’s saying something, because I love all the paper this year. I’m probably into it because of Sam & Dean Winchester.
I made this card for the Merry Monday challenge this week, which is to use plaid on a Christmas card. Done!
The card base and frame for the sentiment panel are Basic Black, and the strip of star paper is framed in Delightful Dijon cardstock.
I heat embossed the sentiment (from the Merriest Wishes stamp set) in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Isn’t that sentiment just wonderful? A really lovely sentiment for many more occasions than just Christmas. And lookit that font. I just love this stamp!
I made the bells using the Seasonal Bells bundle. The stamps and punch come separately, or you can bundle them together for 10% off. I stamped the bells in Delightful Dijon and punched them out with the matching punch, then glued them together. I brushed Clear Wink of Stella on the bells to give them some twinkle. And I finally got Wink of Stella to show up in a photo!
I tied two Mini Jingle Bells together using a length of linen thread — the thread has two strands, so I pulled it apart and used only one strand. It goes through the jingle bells much more easily that way. I glue dotted the jingle bells to the bells.
I wrapped Silver Metallic Thread around two fingers and attached the loops to the back of the bells with Dimensionals, then stuck the bells to the card. This whole bell ensemble is my favorite part of the card.
Finally, I added three Garden Green enamel shapes from the Regals Enamel Shapes.
I added a panel of Whisper White cardstock and a strip of the DSP to the inside of the card. I stamped the sentiment (from Peaceful Pines) in Garden Green.
I really love how this card came out! I hope you love it, too.
