Monday, Monday… can’t get you down… hee hee, funny song that came to me from YEARS ago 🙂 It IS Monday and a beautiful one at that. I hope you have plans to craft for a bit, just for you. We had a Team Meeting yesterday and after the business portion we made cards. Three of our teammates presented (meaning they demonstrated the how-to for the card they created.) ALL OF THEM did a terrific job! And today’s card is one of those demonstrated, which I made.

Christmas Bundle.1

I happen to like monochromatic and this has a splash of color with die cuts, ribbon and embellishments. And how about the embossing with the Merry Melody 3D EF? I haven’t used this folder much and love it! Expect to see more of it in the next couple of months. Let’s see how to do this.

How to:

  • Do the stamping for the die cuts all at the same time. They can all be stamped on a Basic White panel about 4 x 5, then die cut together. The stamp set of choice is Christmas Season and the dies are from Seasonal Dies.
    • Evening Evergreen ink for the longer leaf stem and for the single pine bough
    • Soft Succulent ink for the Holly leaves – stamp twice and die cut twice
    • Cherry Cobbler for the berries
    • Soft Suede for the berry stem
  • Die cut the above stamped pieces
  • Run a Basic White panel 1 3/4 x 3 7/8 through the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder & adhere to a Basic White panel 1 7/8 x 3 7/8
  • Adhere these two panels to a Basic White panel 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
  • Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Stamparatus. The sentiment comes from the Christmas To Remember stamp set
  • Add the die cuts as shown in the photo with liquid glue and glue dots
  • Add three Gold Holly Leaves with glue dots
  • Add a bow tied with the Cherry Cobbler and Gold Ribbon and adhere with a glue dot
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the completed Basic White embellished panel and add to a Thick Basic White card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 14

The inside…

Christmas Bundle.2

Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Christmas To Remember stamp set. Stamp the holly leaves in Soft Succulent ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler ink. Both come from Christmas Season stamp set. All this is done on a panel of Basic White card stock 4 x 5 1/2. Add to the inside of the card and voila – the card is finis!

For the envelope…

Stamp the holly leaves in Soft Succulent ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler ink – both from the Christmas Season stamp set. For the flap I stamped the pine boughs from Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink and called it done. Lovely card! I really like this one.
