Good Tidings

This is a card that some of my club members made at the Christmas Card & Cookies Class.  I chose these colors (Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, and Rich Razzleberry)) because I already used my other green and red ink pads for another card.  I had shoe box cards for them to do and they really enjoyed it.  They brought their own adhesives, but I had everything cut out and supplied the ink and paper.
The base of the card is Tranquil Tide cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2" in the middle.
The second layer is Pool Party cut at 4" x 5-1/4".  The Whisper White cardstock is the third layer cut at 3-3/4" x 5" and the Good Tidings stamp set is a 2-step process.  First they stamped Pool Party with the bold holly stamp and then Tranquil Tide with the image holly stamp.  We really liked the color combination.  Then the berries were added with just Rich Razzleberry ink instead of doing a 2-step with them.  I thought Silver Mini Tinsel Ribbon looked great with this card wrapped around the two layers of Pool Party and Whisper White.  The Good Tidings sentiment was stamped with Black Memento ink and cut out with the Layering Circle Framelits and then layered onto a Rich Razzleberry Scallop Circle.

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.
