Happy Saturday! Our theme for the CCMC Saturday Blog Hop this week is Christmas In July! SOOOOO many new products and Christmas items in the new August-December Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Holiday Catalog). I pulled out a stamp set I’ve been SO excited to get, Gnome for the Holidays, to use on my card.
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Real Red cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 1-1/4 x 4 piece of Heartwarming Hugs DSP was added to the bottom of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
- A 1/8 x 4 strip of Real Red cardstock was added to hide the seam.
- The 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 piece of Seaside Spray cardstock was stamped with the snowflake cluster from Snowman Season Stamp Set with Seaside Spray Ink. The greeting was stamped with Memento Black on top.
- A 1 x 2-1/2 piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut on a curve and added to the bottom of the tag piece.
- The tree was punched from Heartwarming Hugs DSP with the Pine Tree Punch and added to the snowbank. A few Red Rhinestones were added for “ornaments” and some Linen Thread tied in a bow was added to the top. The corners were rounded with the Detailed Trio Punch.
- The gnome from Gnome for the Holidays was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock, then colored with Real Red Combo, Old Olive Combo, Smoky Slate Combo, Ivory and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. It was hand-cut and added to the front with Stampin’ DImensionals.
- A red rhinestone was added to the mistletoe bow.
