Woohoo it’s Friday! I have for you today the final design from my November Christmas Card Class a couple weeks ago. This adorable design features the fun Jolly Friends stamp set as well as the fun Designer Series Paper designs are from Candy Cane Lane and This Christmas. I have to tell you……this was a “make it work” design. Lol! What I mean by that is I found this design on Pinterest by Susan Powell (Yup!) and fell in love with it. BUT……I had to make do with what I had in my “stash”. I went with the Crumb Cake Dots from the Candy Candy Lane DSP and a different sentiment. “Special Delivery” is from the Tin of Tags stamp set. I also stamped “Making Spirits Bright” on the inside from the same stamp set.
I love being able to get creative and use what I have in “my stash” to “make it work”. [smile] Thank you Susan Powell for the fun inspiration!
BASE: The card base is Crumb Cake layered with Crumb Cake Dots Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. Next offset a Cherry Cobbler Striped rectangle from the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper. Finally, this top with a Whisper White rectangle embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder popped with Dimensionals. [Hey, it needed height. Lol!]
SANTA HATS: Stamp three different Santa hats from the Jolly Friends stamp set onto Whisper White in Real Red Ink. There are three images you build to create Santa’s hats……the hat, band and puff. The band and puff are also stamped onto Whisper White with Sahara Sand ink. These are then popped with Dimensionals as well as 1/8″ circles of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer to top the puffs (the first bit of sparkle).
SENTIMENT: “Special Delivery” from the Tin of Tags stamp set is stamped onto a narrow Whisper White strip in Memento Black Ink. Trim the ends into V’s for a banner look. Then layer onto a slightly smaller strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer and trim the ends to match (second bit of sparkle). [TIP: You need to use glue dots, double stick tape or Dimensionals to permanently adhere anything to glimmer cardstock.]
