I hope you all had a great weekend! It's time to celebrate Christmas in July! I CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) a card from Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator exclusive magazine, Stampin' Success and changed it up to Christmas! I love how this card turned out--but then I am a vellum lover!
Don't you just love the layer of vellum? It gives that frosted look--the downfall is adhering vellum, but the benefit to this layout is that the adhesive is under the ribbon!
Don't you love the overall look?
To make this card:
1. Cut a piece of Thick White cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4" to create a card base that is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Cut 2 pieces of the designer series paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" (1 in the polkadot and 1 in the floral). Cut the 2 pieces of the designer series paper on an angle. Cut a piece of 4 x 5 1/4" vellum and cut on the same angle as the designer series paper (or make a smaller rectangle and tuck the ends in!).
2. Cut a circle large enough to fit the Merry Christmas stamp using the Layering Circles Thinlits, and cut a slightly larger scalloped circle from the Old Olive cardstock. Stamp Merry Christmas in Old Olive. Stamp the pine branch in Tranquil Tide once full strength and a second time slightly angled from the original a second time (half strength) both above and below the sentiment on the Whisper White cardstock. Adhere to the Old Olive scalloped circle.
3. Adhere the ribbon over the seam of the Designer Series Paper and vellum seams. Adhere the Designer Series Paper to the card base.
4. Using dimensionals adhere the layered circle piece.
Have a great day!
