Merry Little Labels in Garden Green

Here is another card using the Merry Little Labels set but using Garden Green instead of Night of Navy.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Be Merry.  I used a half of the gold Foil Snowflake instead of the silver with this card.  For the inside sentiment, "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" I used the Christmas Quilt set.

Merry Little Labels

Night of Navy has been one of my favorite colors for Christmas cards and with the Silver Foil Snowflake, it just makes it adorable with the stamp set Merry Little Labels.  I love the little deer and the trees.  I punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch.  The Designer Series Paper I used is the Naturally Eclectic.  I thought it looked somewhat like snow and with the background Softly Falling Embossing Folder used on the Whisper White cardstock makes it all about snow.  On the inside, I stamped the sentiment "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" from the Half Full stamp set in Night of Navy ink.

Christmas Sweaters

This is a card inspired by Brandy's Cards but I used her ideas to make it my own.  The stamp set is the Christmas Sweaters set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  Santa's beard is made by using Multipurpose Glue and Dazzling Diamonds.  Here is the rest of my instructions:

1.     The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4” in the middle.
2.    The second layer is Garden Green and cut at 4” x 5-1/4” and inserted into the Cable Knit 3-D Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot.
3.    Wrap the ribbon around the Garden Green Cable Knit cardstock and put a Glue Dot on the back to hold it in place.
4.    Ink up the Santa sweater with the Memento Black ink and stamp it on the 2-1/2” x 3” Whisper White cardstock.  Color in the Santa with markers: Sahara Sand for his glasses, Blushing Bride for his face, Cherry Cobbler for his hat.  The sweater is Old Olive and Pool Party.
5.    Use Multipurpose Glue on all the white parts of Santa (beard, mustache, eyebrows, the brim of hat and pompom), but make sure the black lines will show through and then sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds over the glue. Shake off excess and let dry.
6.    Once dry, adhere to the 2-3/4” x 3-1/4” Cherry Cobbler layer and put Dimensionals on the back and adhere to the front of the card over the ribbon.

Santa's Sleigh Shaker Card

This card was inspired by the card sample on page 119 of the Annual Catalog and my October Paper Pumpkin Kit. Here are my instructions:

1.     The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler cut at 5-1/2” x 4-1/4” and the second layer is 4”x 5”.
2.    The DSP is cut at 1” x 5”.
3.    The circle is cut with the Layering Circle Framelits using the second to the largest circle die.
4.    Next, I used the October Paper Pumpkin Kit by putting the largest window sheet over the circle on the inside.  Then, I attach the largest Dimensional Circle from the kit.  Then, I used a pinch each of the sequins for the inside (except for the Pool Party ones).  Then I used the tree printed background from the kit to place over the Dimensional Circle.
5.    I put the strip of DSP at bottom of the card and wrapped the ribbon around the very top of the DSP and tied an extra piece on to the right side of the card.
6.    I stamped the deer with Soft Suede ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut him out with the Thinlet Die.  I stamped the bow on Cherry Cobbler cardstock with Cherry Cobbler ink and die cut it out and attached to the reindeer with a Glue Dot.  I attached a Rhinestone to the center of the bow and used Mini Dimensionals to attach to my card.
7.    I inked up the sentiment “Merry Christmas Wishes” with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock and trimmed the sides with Paper Snips to create a banner.
8.  I mounted it on Cherry Cobbler cardstock with the Foam Adhesive Strips.
