Good morning – it’s Tuesday and Day One of the three-day Seasonal Sale! If you haven’t already been shopping and stocking up on paper, ink and die sets – not to worry! You’ve got THREE DAYS to cash in! But…what if the INTERNET crashes tonight?!?
Good point – don’t risk it! Get after it now!
I’ve got a fun little Christmas card for you today and it might have a ….little tiny sneaky peek of a new goody from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog! 😳😳😳
I pulled out the Merry Snowflakes stamp set and some…Pattern Party DSP (this is the cool Host Exclusive Set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – get it FREE with an individual or workshop order over $180 in retail). Take a look-see:
Do you see it? The Sneaky Peek?
Maybe not yet!
The layout for this one is from the Global Design Project sketch challenge this week.
And the color palette is from the Just Add Ink challenge!
I started with…the Sneaky Peek! Let me introduce you to the Gingham Embossing Folder from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog!
You’ll be able to get it on 4 Jan (or…join my team this week – TRIPLE DIP cone! 😉 – and pre-order it on 1 Dec as a Demonstrator perk!).
I used this fun new embossing folder to emboss a card-front-sized piece of Basic White cardstock and then adhered it to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with Liquid Glue.
I pulled out the buffalo check paper from the host-exclusive Pattern Party DSP and, using Blending Brushes, colored a piece in Evening Evergreen and a piece in Blushing Bride.
Then I used the next-to-largest die in the Scalloped Contours Die set to cut one in each of the colors.
I adhered the Blushing Bride die cut with Liquid Glue – then popped the Evening Evergreen die cut on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Wonderful Snowflakes embellishment.
Then I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere a length of Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon.
I cut a large Tasteful Labels circle die from some gold paper from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. Cuz I could, I embossed the circle in the Gingham Embossing Folder and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.
I stamped the Merry Snowflakes sentiment in Blushing Bride on a strip of Basic White, then I snipped a banner end with Paper Snips.
I popped the sentiment over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added an Evening Evergreen gem from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a second Merry Snowflakes sentiment in Blushing Bride on a Basic White panel and added an Evening Evergreen jewel. In the corners, I stamped some Merry Snowflake snowflakes in stamped-off-TWICE Blushing Bride!
I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Basic White mat and into the Thick Basic White card base and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got more stamped-off-TWICE Blushing Bride snowflakes on the front…
…and some more Evening Evergreen-colored Pattern Party DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! So…this card shows how versatile the Pattern Party DSP (NOT a “traditional” Christmas paper, right??!) can be as a part of your card-making tool-chest! You can get it for FREE, too – let me tell you how (Hint: my Online Host Club MIGHT be able to help with that! 😉 ). And I love the wintry-pretty sentiments and snowflakes in the Merry Snowflakes set – that front sentiment is perfectly sized and perfectly stated!
I hope you like!
How fun is that Gingham Embossing Folder? Might as well just go ahead and put it on your list so you’ll be ready when the new Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog becomes available to you! 🙂
