Time of Year Christmas Card


Hi Friends. Here's a Christmas card featuring one of my favourite host-only stamp sets. The set comes with stamps for all occassions, not just Christmas. Love it!  
Supplies:
§  Stamp Sets: Time of Year (141790)
§  Inks: Real Red (126949), Old Olive (126953), Brights Stampin’ Write Markers (131259)
§  Paper: Real Red (102482), Old Olive (100702), Very Vanilla (101650)
§  Other: Big Shot (143263), Bunch of Banners Framelits (141488), Holly Embossing Folder (133737), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430), SNAIL Adhesive (104332)

Measurements:
  • Real Red:  8 ½” x 5 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”;  5 ¼” x 4”
  • Old Olive:  3 ¾” x 3 ¼”
  • Very Vanilla:  3 ½” x 3”, plus scrap for banner

Instructions:

  1. Emboss your smaller Real Red piece using Big Shot and Holly Embossing Folder.  Adhere to Real Red cardbase.  Set aside.
  2. Stamp “Christmas” in Old Olive onto Very Vanilla Scrap.  Cut out using Bunch of Banners Framelits.
  3. Lay your stamped banner on the square of Very Vanilla—decide where you want it, and then stamp your “Thinking of You”  and “this” accordingly. 
  4. For the leaves and berries stamp, color directly on the stamp itself using Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers.  Re-ink each time for the best results.
  5. Assemble your card.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Old Olive panel to the Real Red embossed piece. 
Enjoy the day and HAPPY STAMPING!
