Over the next 5 days I will be sharing 5 different Christmas cards I came up with for my stampers that came to my last Christmas Card Class in Ellenboro. They each got Labels to Love stamp set and 5 Free cards to create that evening. I love getting together with others to stamper no matter it’s one person or many!
I am just loving the pack of Designer Series Paper called Around the World! When I first saw it I wondered if I would like it but remember there are two sides so you will usually like at least one! In this case I only really like one side of all the paper. There is one side that is just simple patterns then the other side have images that I don’t care for. I love that our paper is double sided!
For this card I wanted it to look like gift packaging! I cut a strip of the flannel looking designer series paper and wrapped the Real Red solid ribbon and tied a bow at the top. Then I wanted there to be a tag that looked like it was hanging at the top of the gift.
I cut out a circle with the Stitched Shapes die and punched a 2″ circle that I stamped on. I adhere the white to the black with some Tombow liquid glue (my fav!) then used Stampin’ Dimensionals (also my fav!!) to adhere that to the rest of the card.
All I did to finish the look was add three rhinestones to the bottom of the “tag”. So do you think the card looks like a gift package? I am not always an Old Olive fan which is what the card base is but it works so well with this designer series paper.
This look could be done in so many other colors and designer series paper! You could try making a birthday card this way.
The new Stampin’ Blends are now available to customers to purchase! They don’t take a lot of practice before feeling confident with using them. I’ll work on some cards to share soon. If you would like to order them then click here to shop. Use my hostess code: Y4RGGJFM and I’ll send you a full size wide Stamp case you can keep them in.
Have a great Thursday!
