Simple Joys

I hosted a Christmas card-themed stamp-a-stack this past weekend where each participant made three each of four cards and went home with a stack of Christmas cards to start their holiday season with.  This was one of the projects!  Because there are so many people making multiples of each card, I had to keep them simple, but they all turned out lovely!  I'll share the others in the next few days.

Step by Step

To complete this project, you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:

5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Soft Suede (card base)

4" x 5-1/4" Very Vanilla

2-1/2" x 3" This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper

(2) 1/2" x 5-1/4" This Christmas Specialty DSP

Scraps Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede to cut pine boughs and pine cone

1)  Use Big Shot and Pretty Pines thinlits to cut pine boughs and pine cone pieces from scrap paper.  Adhere pine cone pieces together with fine-tip glue.

2)  Adhere DSP pieces to Very Vanilla cardstock.  Stamp sentiment using Soft Suede ink. Adhere Very Vanilla piece to card base.

3)  Attach pine bough pieces using fine-tip glue.  Attach pine cone with mini glue dots.  Loop thread through pine cone accent, tie a bow, then attach to card with a mini glue dot.
