Making Spirits Bright

I love the greetings and images in Stampin’ Up!’s Making Spirits Bright stamp set…especially the eyeball martini!  But, since we are getting ready to start the Holiday/Winter Collection of Create with Connie and Mary, I thought I’d better go with the season and make my card a Christmas holiday card today!  It was also my first time to use the Star Border punch…and I backed it with Champagne Glimmer Paper!  I also did a second version of this card which I’ll show off later this week!


Making Spirits Bright

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Whisper White, folded in half.
  • Next layer is 4 x 5-1/4 Garden Green.
  • On the 3-1/2 x 4-3/4 layer of Real Red, I used the Confetti Stars Punch along the left side.  As a bonus, I have all these little star confetti sitting in a pile ready to use in a shaker card!
  • Behind the Real Red layer, I adhered a 1-1/2 x 4-3/4 piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper…it really shimmers in real life!
  • Across the front I added a 1 x 4 piece of Nordic Noel Designer Paper (LOVE that stripe and the traditional Christmas colors in this DSP!)
  • I stamped the Christmas drink with Black Stazon Ink on Whisper White, then used Real Red, Garden Green, So Saffron and Pool Party Markers to color it.  I cut it out with the Window Frame Framelit and layered it on a square 1/4″ larger than the framelit.
