Wonder of the Season Suite

SU! Wishes and Wonder Bundle

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.

Wishes & Wonder

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 😁

I couldn’t help myself – got working and made 4 cards! I wanted to do a One Sheet Wonder with  6×6 paper, so the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP in this suite was perfect for that. Here are the four cards…

Wonder of the Season Suite

Here are the measurements I used for the One Sheet Wonder:

  • 1 1/2 x 5 1/2
  • 3 x 3
  • 3 x 1 (three of these cut directly under the 3 x 3)
  • that leaves a strip 1 1/2 wide… make four 1 1/2″ squares ~ bingo, four cards!

Card #1

Wishes & Wonder stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies #1

I used the 3 x 1 strips adhered to a panel of Cherry Cobbler 3 1/4 x 3 1/2. Additional papers used were Garden Green and Shaded Spruce for the pines, Gold foil for the stag, 3/4″ x about 5″ Cherry Cobbler for the sentiment banner (the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch was used after heat embossing the sentiment), Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack using the Gold trim, and let’s see, Cherry Cobbler ink for the circle element. This stag is stunning!

Card #2

Cherish The Season stamp set
Sounds of the Season Dies

For this card, the obvious is the 1 1/2″ x 5″ strip adhered to Cherry Cobbler 1 5/8″ x 5 1/2″. The pines were stamped in Garden Green, bells die cut rom Gold Foil sheet, pine die cuts from Shaded Spruce, ribbon is Real Red Sheer 3/8″ and finally Red Rhinestone Gems. I think this is my favorite card of the four – love those bells!

Card #3

Wishes & Wonder stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies

This ribbon makes the most awesome bows! It is part of the Suite – Ribbon Combo Pack in Shaded Spruce; it’s called Argyle Stain Ribbon. Cherry Cobbler is cut 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, also the banner under the sleigh is 3/4″ by probably 4 1/2″ before using the new Banners Pick A Punch to trim the ends. The sleigh is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and I added Wonderful Gems in Real Red. Also is the Gold 1/8″ cord from the same Ribbon Combo Pack. I wanted it to look like reins!

Card #4

Wonder * Wishes stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies
stag from the Wonder of The Season Memories & More Card Pack

This card uses the four  1 1/2″ squares, more of the 1″ Argyle Satin Ribbon, stamped circle using Cherry Cobbler ink and the North Pole Wonder Dies to cut out. The stag is a sticker – yes, a sticker… from the Wonder of The Season Memories & More Card Pack. The background is a Whisper White panel run through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I really like this embossing folder!

Thanks for stopping by.

May you have a beautiful day.
