I used the Stampin’ Up! Merry Medley stamp to create a clean and simple holiday card to share today. There is a similar card in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and I used that as the starting point for my project.
I will also be a little difficult to reach today and tomorrow. I’ll be at a World Card Making Day event all day today and I’ll be at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event all day on Saturday. I’ll have limited access to my email so I may not be able to respond to messages as quickly as I normally do. So excited for both events! The upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2017 Occasions Catalog will be unveiled at the event on Saturday. I promise that I’ll take lots of pictures and share them next week as soon as I’m allowed. 🙂
I started by stamping the image from the Merry Medley stamp set in Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Ink on a panel of Basic Black card stock. I let the image dry completely and then adhered it to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL. I wrapped a strand of the Real Red 3/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon around the panel, adhered it with SNAIL and then adhered the panel to a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut three branches with the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies from Garden Green card stock. I snipped the ends off and adhered them together and to the card front with rolled up Glue Dots. I cut a bow from Real Red card stock with the die from the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies and adhered that over the pine branches with a rolled up Glue Dot.
I colored the sentiment and holly image from the Merry Medley stamp with my Basic Black, Real Red and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I punched the sentiment out with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to a circle that I’d cut with a Layering Circles Framelits die from Basic Black card stock.
I cut the ornament image out with the Merry Tags Framelits die from Real Red card stock and adhered the layered sentiment to it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a bow through the top of the ornament die cut with gold twine from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack and then adhered the bow to the card front with a rolled up Glue Dot and the ornament with SNAIL.
I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I inked the pine branch image in Garden Green ink, stamped it on scrap paper once and then stamped it on the panel inside the card.
