Happy Holly-Days – Project 4

Happy Stampin’ Thursday!

I finally did it! I used traditional Christmas colors for this set, LOL. The Designer Series Paper made it so easy.

This is a quick 5 minute card, and the only reason it is rated at a Casual Stamper card is because I used an embossing folder and die. To make it a beginner lever card, simply leave those two things out. The sentiment can be stamped on a colored cardstock if you do not have Blending Brushes or Daubers. I will post the Beginner card on the Facebook Group later this week for you 🙂 so you can see what I am talking about!

Begin by folding and burnish the card base with a bone folder for a smooth, crisp crease.

Using the smaller piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp your sentiment using Cherry Cobbler ink.

I used the third largest rectangle frame to cut out my sentiment.

Next, using a Blending Brush, I brushed Bumblebee ink onto the edges of my frame in circular motions.

Now, adhere the DSP card front, with Stampin’ Seal adhesive, to the card base. When I do this, I always start on the long open side of the card base (versus the long folded side). Make sure it is even on all three sides and straight before pressing down.

Run the green strip through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder to achieve a textured look.

Adhere the green strip down the center of the card by lining it up along the edge of the card.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere the sentiment frame at a slight angle.

Finally, color three Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Stampin’ Blends, one in each color, and place around sentiment to accent it.
