This holiday card features the Detailed Baubles Thinlits from Stampin’ Up! and is a card that can be made rather quickly. At this busy time of year, simple is a good thing! Also, check out the thinlits in my online store – they are on SALE (while quantities last!)
Using the Detailed Baubles dies cut the Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper which is from the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper stack. Next use the 2-1/4″ punch for the round ornament to cut Old Olive cardstock. This will create a base for the glimmer ornament piece. Since there is not a die or punch for the oblong ornament, use the Big Shot Embossing Mat (SALE item) and the oblong ornament thinlit to emboss a piece of the Old Olive cardstock. After embossing, trim around the outer rim of the embossed Old Olive ornament. With the embossing, the oblong ornament fits perfectly inside the cutouts of the glimmer paper. Attach the glimmer ornament pieces using the Fine-tip Glue Pen.
Create card base using Real Red cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″) and top with a layer of Old Olive cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″). Cut a top decorative layer from Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″). Attach the ornaments to the decorate layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Thread 1/8″ Real Red ribbon through top of ornaments and adhere to back of designer series paper. With adhesive, attach designer series paper layer to the card base. Complete the card by stamping the greeting tag with Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Use punch to cut the tag shape. Both the greeting and punch are in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. To give the tag some definition against the DSP, sponge around the edges with the Old Olive ink. Complete the card by attaching small red bows to the top of the ornaments.
