Christmas is almost here and time is running out for all the wonderfulness of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. Be sure if you want any retiring favorites from this Mini Catalog that you don’t wait and get them before they’re gone. I am using some of my favorites for the last time this season on my Glimmer Gals Team December Sketch Challenge card. I used the festive Tis the Season DSP, the Winter Snow embossing folder, and (already sold out) Sounds of the Season dies.
Start with a Real Red cs card base. Cut a Silver Foil panel and dry emboss it with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. Use Stampin’ Seal+ at add the embossed foil panel to the card base. Die cut out the three stitched rectangles from the Tis the Season DSP to form the present with the Stitched Rectangles dies.
Use Stampin’ Seal+ to attach a long piece (enough to wrap around the DSP rectangles and tie a bow) of Real Red Sheer ribbon. Then add more Stampin’ Seal+ to the back of the DSP panels and attach them to the embossed Silver Foil panel. I tied a knot at the top of the DSP rectangles and then tied a bow using glue dots to secure the bow in place. I also cut a small piece (about 1/2″) of Real Red Sheer ribbon and used glue dots to wrap it around the middle of the bow giving it a more distinct center.
Die cut a Silver Foil jingle bell with the Sounds of the Season dies (now retired). I glued a small piece of Shaded Spruce cs to the back of the Silver Foil bell and added red Wonderful Gems for the berries. Use your paper snips to cut the loop at the top of the bell and slip it around the top of the Real Red Sheer ribbon and use a glue dot to secure the bell in place.
Cut the Whisper White cs sentiment panel and a Real Red cs sentiment layer panel. Stamp the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on the Whisper White cs sentiment panel. Glue the stamped Whisper White cs sentiment panel to the Real Red cs sentiment layer panel. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the sentiment panels to the card front centered under the DSP present.
Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink. Stamp the holly & berries images from the Banner Year stamp set in the top left corner. I also added a strip of embossed Silver Foil on the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my Tis the Season Card.
