Here is my BONUS card based on the Preview stamp set that Mary chose, Merry Minis!  I love the Christmas lights image in this set and based my card around it!


Here are the details:

  1. Base of the card is Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
  2. I layered on the green polka dot print from Be of Good Cheer on top of Very Vanilla, the added little trim pieces above and below it with the stripe pattern from the same DSP. 
  3. 1/8" Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon hides the seams between the designer paper.
  4. I used the Large Scallop Edgelit with Brushed Silver cardstock and cut the scallop, then lined up the piece and cut it again to make a skinny silver thread.
  5. I stamped the Christmas Lightbulb images from Merry Minis in Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Pacific Point and Pumpkin Pie (with the base of the light in Basic Gray) and punched with the Merry Minis trio punch.  They are popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. I used the piercing template to pierce a double line across the top of the Very Vanilla, then used my Gumball Green Marker to draw the Xs between the piercing.
  7. I stamped the Christmas greeting from Seasonal Sayings in Gumball Green ink in the bottom right corner.
