Merry Little Christmas

It seems like this year is just flying by now. It's less than two weeks till Thanksgiving and it seems like it's just getting busier and busier. So many things to do... so little time. Well I have another card from the October Make and Take to share with you today. This one was inspired by Chiaki's card that you can find HERE

  • Stamps: Merry Little Christmas, Wishing  You
  • DSP: Season of Style
  • Card Stock: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
  • Ink: Gumball Green
  • Markers: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler
  • Accessories: Season of Style Washi Tape, Brights Glimmer Brads, Chalk Talk Framelits, Stylish Stripes embossing folder, Paper Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Stampin' Dimensionals

For this fun Christmas card start off with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Gumball Green card stock and score it at 4-1/4". Next cut a piece of polka dot Season of Style DSP 4" x 5-1/4" and adhere it onto the card front. 

Next cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 2-7/8" x 4-1/8" and run it through the Big Shot in the Stylish Stripes embossing folder. Add two strips of Season of Style Washi tape over two of the wide lines and use Paper Snips to trim the tape even with the edge of the card stock. Then adhere this onto a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock. Add this layer onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For the greeting ink up the image from Merry Little Christmas with Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler markers. Breathe on the stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamp it onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. Cut out the greeting in the Big Shot with the Chalk Talk framelits. Use a Paper Piercing Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat to add a hole in the top and bottom of the label and insert two Glimmer Brads. Adhere this onto the card front with more Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For the inside cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 4" x 5-1/4". Add two pieces of Season of Style Washi tape at the top. Stamp the greeting from Wishing You in Gumball Green ink next to the Washi Tape. Ink up the stack of presents from Wishing You with your markers, breathe on the stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamp the presents in the bottom left corner of the card stock. Adhere this inside the card and you're done! 

I absolutely LOVE the Wishing You stamp set! I can see it being used for much more than just Christmas cards. Birthday cards anyone???? Maybe even a wedding card? It's so versatile, just switch out the greetings with something else that fits! What other occasions could you use this stamp set for?
