Hi everyone, as we move another day closer to Christmas (yikes!), I thought I’d share another CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of one of my favourite Christmas bundles in the July to December 2021 Mini Catalogue – the Merriest Moments bundle. I LOVE this sample so much! It’s even prettier in real life!
Here’s how I made the card…
To start, create a card base out of Mint Macaron cardstock. Use the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder to add gorgeous embossing to the front of it. I then took a panel of Old Olive cardstock and used the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder and the coordinating die from the Merriest Frames die set to cut and emboss the detail panel.
Next, I stamped the berries and assorted leaves from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron and Old Olive ink. I stamped off for the leaves and used the lighter shades for some of the leaves.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and then white heat-embossed. I then die cut the sentiment with the stitched rectangle from the Merriest Frames die set. I also die cut all the other elements.
To assemble the card, I added a length of the Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ ribbon to the card base. It’s so pretty. The Linen Thread was then tied around the card front. Before adding the Old Olive die cut panel I sponged it with Whisper White ink. This helped to soften the look and tie it all together. I would recommend making sure this is completely dry before handling. The Whisper White ink is a pigment ink so it is quite slow drying. I often use the Heat Tool to speed up the process.
All that was left was to layer all the pieces together. Some I added with Seal, and others I popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch was to add some Shimmery Crystal Effects. I hadn’t used this in ages but I love it! It adds a little dimension and shine to your project. You just have to remember not to touch it until it is well and truly dry otherwise you run the risk of putting a mark on it or ruining the shine.
Here’s the card…
It’s such a pretty card and the stamps, embossing folder and dies do all the work. I love the Merriest Moments bundle! What do you think?
