Hello… muggy day here even though it is 67 degrees. Of course it is not quite 5 AM either. Doomed to be a hot one. Yesterdays card was more ornate ~ todays is layered and more country, but still Christmas. It is a CASE of a card on the back of the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog.
Gosh, the picture is kinda dark… but I think you can see the many layers. I knew I wanted to play with the papers in ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP pack and I knew I wanted to use the stag again. I have used him before and he is so elegant. Anyway, staring me in the face was the back of the catalog and I just went for it… There are so many great dies in the North Pole Wonder Dies. I haven’t quite played with all of them yet, but it’s definitely in the cards 🙂
I started with the die that looks like a tag and die cut two of those, then went to the DSP again for a coordinating paper for the back drop. Love this plaid! I then die cut a single long leaf stem in Shaded Spruce, then played around with the ‘spray’ stamp. That I stamped in Crumb Cake on Whisper White and die cut with the coordinating circle. Notice how the tag has those jagged edges – like pinking shears? So does this particular circle! Gosh, I could go off on a tangent about pinking shears… they bring back so MANY memories. But.. the stag – one gorgeous animal… die cut from Brushed Metallic cs, not as shiny and bold as gold foil. I began layering, didn’t have papers cut yet ~ this off-center look is kinda fun, and then I put the tags together and off-centered them so both showed. They HAD to have a string ~ I found the 1/16″ Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Combo Pack and it brought in another element of sparkle that I like. OK, time to cut papers and put things together… and you can see the layering, all adhered with liquid glue. I debated with a banner, wasn’t sure I wanted anything more, but the card needed it…. stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on a Whisper White scrap, added dimenionals and the card front was complete. Card cuts are listed at the end of this post.
The inside was easy. I wanted it simple and stamped the sleigh from the Wishes & Wonder stamp set in Real Red on Whisper White. Adhered that to the inside and bingo, the card was done.
While the sleigh was out I stamped it on the envelope front n- continuing with the Real Red ink. The envelope flap got another piece of the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP. And that was it!
Let me talk to you about the Wishes & Wonder bundle just a bit… when you purchase a bundle (stamp set with coordinating dies) it is automatically 10% off. And all the products I used in today’s project are part of the Wonder of The Season Suite. When you purchase a suite, it is also less than if you purchased every item individually. So, what are you waiting for? Oh yes… you can order any of these items as a suite or individually, beginning 4 Aug. They are listed in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog which goes live to customers 4 Aug. Don’t have a catalog or a demonstrator? Then talk to me and we can fix that 😁
SU! has some awesome items in their 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and a real bonus going on now – called BONUS DAYS. For every purchase of $50 from now until 3 Aug. you will receive from SU! by email, a $5 coupon that is redeemable 4-31 Aug. Such a deal!
And when you order from me, please use my July host code to receive a SU! item worth $10 when your purchase is $50-$150. Sounds like another good deal, right?! It is…
