As promised, I have the last two cards we created at our Holiday Stamp-a-Stack (you can see the details on the first two in my post from yesterday).
Like I said yesterday, these cards were meant to be fairly easy to make though I guess the hand cutting on this card is a bit more time intensive than the other cards we did. I really liked how the holly looked cut out and hanging over the matting, but I’ll share a couple variations folks made that may be a bit faster to do for those of you less inclined to cut intricate images. 🙂
This card uses the Peaceful Seasons hostess set from the Holiday Mini. It’s a very simple and straightforward layout and so you could really use it for any stamps or holiday. In this case, we popped the Garden Green and Very Vanilla cardstock up on Stampin’ Dimensionals in the center of the Cherry Cobbler cardbase, over some Very Vanilla 5/8” grosgrain ribbon. We also used markers to color in the holly image using Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, and Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then we cut out the holly and adhered it straight down onto the corner of the matted image. In my sample, I only put Snail adhesive in the middle of the holly so that the edges could curl up and add some dimension without needing an actual dimensional.
During one of the sessions, a couple folks decided to get a bit creative to avoid cutting out the holly. So these are some options they came up with:
Yes, the globe ornament is cut out, but I think it is easier to cut than the holly. Well, and the fact that she was really into doves and “Peace on Earth”
Jolly Holiday Seasons Greetings
I swear, I always end up with way more ideas that I want to do for my classes and workshops than is practical. So, I decided that I really wanted to let everyone play with the new Tags til Christmas set and the matching Ornament punch. This stamp set is aimed directly at me because I love punches probably too much and oh my goodness when I see stamp sets that every stamp in the set matches a punch.
Plus, the stamp and punch are one of the Handmade Holiday bundles for 20% off! I know, I’m a sucker for sales. 🙂 Anyway, back to the card:
This card is so fast and is still super cute in person. Plus add some of the adhesive rhinestones to the ornament or a little glitter for even more kick! However, for this quick version, we stamped the ornament image from Tags til Christmas in Cherry Cobbler and punched it out using the Ornament punch. We adhered three patterns of the Jolly Holiday DSP to the bottom of the Old Olive cardbase and then added a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock that was punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch. Finally we stamped the sentiment from the Curly Cute stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and then adhered the ornament image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
