I love the colors and design of the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit! With each of the Card Kits you get enough materials to make 8 cards with lined envelopes. And when you purchase kit and the Merry Little Christmas stamp together in the bundle you save 15%! The wood bundle is $19.95 (item 133286) and the clear bundle is $17.95 (item 133287). And the additional card kits are only $9.95 (item 132158) each! Everything is precut, all that you need to do is stamp, adhere and fold. 🙂
I put the pack of cards together and I’m giving them as a gift, so I packed mine up in a clear acrylic card box.
I had to add a little variation to mine, but they are really pretty when you assemble them just as the instructions show too!
I colored the sentiment from the Merry Little Christmas stamp set with my Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it on the tag (using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement). Then I stamped the little flourish image and the line image in Coastal Cabana ink above and below the sentiment.
Then I adhered the precut striped panel to the card base with SNAIL and I adhered the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I punched out a 3/4″ Circle from the Silver Foil Sheets and a 1/2″ Circle from Coastal Cabana card stock. I adhered the two circles together, then to the card front with SNAIL. I adhered the little button from the kit to the circles with a Glue Dot, then tied the bow from the included Baker’s Twine and I rolled up a Glue Dot and adhered it over the button.
I stamped the sentiment from the More Merry Messages stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink and the flourish image in Gumball Green ink on a Whisper White panel and I adhered it inside the card. I finished up by adhering the precut envelope liners to the envelopes that are included in the kit. And eight cards were finished up in no time!!
