I am going to take a few days or maybe all of next week off from posting on my blog. A much needed vacation, some Christmas shopping and some overdue time with Friends.
My share for today is a Christmas card that I designed using Stampin' Up's Tin of Tags Stamp Set. I've gotten more use out of this stamp set than a lot of the stamp sets that I own.
Let's take a look:
I wanted to go with a different color combination for a Christmas card and this is what I came up with.
My card base is Mint Macaron Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4".
Using Stampin' Up's Tin of Tags Stamp Set, I stamped 3 of the Snowflakes in Mint Macaron Ink down the right edge of the card base.
I pulled off some Sequins from a roll of SU's Silver Sequin Trim and adhered them around the Snowflakes and to the centers of the Snowflakes with SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle.
I adhered some Basic Jewel Rhinestones to the center of each Snowflake.
I adhered a piece of SU's Vellum Cardstock trimmed out at 1-1/2" x 4-1/4" and adhered it to my card base using Mono Multi Purpose Glue. *I knew I would be adhering another piece of cardstock over the vellum so I only put a line of Glue under the vellum where the cardstock was going to be adhered over the Glue line- you don't want to see the Glue through the vellum.
I trimmed out a piece of the Music Note DSP from This Christmas Designer Series Paper at 1" x 3-1/2" and adhered it over the line of Glue and on top of the Vellum Cardstock.
I LOVE this 3/8" Sweet Sugarplum Glitter Ribbon! It's actually part of SU's Fancy Frost Suite which is mostly dedicated to New Year's in the Holiday Catalog. So, of course, I wanted to use it on a Christmas card. =) It's such a gorgeous color!!!
I flagged the end of a 4-1/2" piece Sweet Sugarplum Glitter Ribbon and adhered it to the Music Note piece with Mono Multi Purpose Glue. I took another piece of the ribbon, tied my bow and adhered it to the top of the straight piece of ribbon with a Stampin' Dimensional.
Using SU's Silver Metallic Thread, I tied on 3 of the Mini Jingle Bells and adhered each end of the thread underneath the loops of the bow.
This will definitely be a hand delivered card because of the Jingle Bells. Or, I could not put the Jingle Bells on the card. Hmmmm.....I'll have to think about that one. Oh, and the Mini Jingle Bells really work too!
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
