Holly Jolly Christmas

I'm rubbing my hands together in glee because it's Christmas Card making class next week. Here are two cards we will be creating, along with their 'recipes.'


Holly Jolly Santa

Stamp Sets: Hoopla Holiday (santa) and Four the Holidays (Holly Jolly sentiment)

Ink: SU Cherry Cobbler (hat), black (sentiment and santa), and SU Craft White (swirls)

Paper: SU Cherry Cobbler, SU Whisper White, My Mind’s Eye I Believe

Accessories: SU Bigz Die Perfect Pennants (wreath circle), Sizzix Swirl Embossing Folder, White Felt, Velvet Ribbon

Directions: Stamp Holly Jolly Christmas  and layer onto Cherry Cobbler paper. Stamp santa onto Whisper White cardstock. Stamp hat in Cherry Cobbler onto Whisper White cardstock. Cut out both.

Stamp santa on felt to create outline; cut felt to make a beard and hat trim. Don’t cover up moustache. Don't forget a little round puff for the hat!

Cut wreath circle from Bigz die. Use white ink pigment ink inside the swirl embossing folder, dragging the colors over the high ridges of the folder. Place the red wreath into the embossing folder and run it through the Big Shot. Weave ribbon into wreath.

Put all your pieces togther. The background paper has been adhered to a 4.25-by-5.5-inch white card. The wreath and sentiments are on pop-up adhesives.




Dangling Ornament

Stamp Sets: Tags til Christmas (ornament) and Four the Holidays (Holly Jolly sentiment)

Ink: Cherry Cobbler (ornament) and black

Paper: SU Cherry Cobbler, SU Whisper White, My Mind’s Eye I Believe

Accessories: SU Ornament Punch, Velvet Ribbon

Directions: Stamp in the Holly Jolly Christmas and layer onto Cherry Cobbler paper.

Stamp ornament in Cherry Cobbler ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then punch out.

Put all your pieces togther. The background paper has been adhered to a 4.25-by-5.5-inch white card. The ornament and sentiments are on pop-up adhesives..
