Christmas Wishes Holiday Card

The Christmas Wishes Holiday Card features the Leaves of Holly Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.  It is one of the cards from November’s Holiday Card To-Go Class.  In my monthly Card Class To-Go Kits, all papers are pre-cut, including die cuts or punch shapes, so recipients are able to assemble the cards following the card video instructions.  The kits do not include the stamped images. Typically, I select a bundle or product suite as the focus.  This allows recipients to purchase the featured stamp set or bundle to use for stamping. And of course, substitution with a stamp set already owned can be used.

However for the holiday card class, a variety of bundles were used. It was just too difficult to select one! This required card designs with minimal stamping of sentiments.  Since one of my favorite holiday sets is the Leaves of Holly Bundles, I “had” to include a card featuring the bundle:)  The dies made it easy to create the Christmas Wishes holiday card!  In lieu of stamping the holly leaves, the dies cut the layering pieces for the holly and the holly berries.  By die cutting two cardstock colors, it was easy to achieve shading.  And the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly Bundle could be used or changed to another favorite holiday sentiment.

Project Materials for the Christmas Wishes Holiday Card:
  • Leaves of Holly Bundle 
  • Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper:  5-1/4″ x 4″ layering panel; 6″ x 2-1/2″ for envelope
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score/fold at 4-1/4″ for card base
  • Basic White Cardstock: 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ layering panel; 5-1/4″ x 4″ for interior; scrap for sentiment
  • Old Olive Cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 4″ for holly leaves base
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 4″ for holly leaves overlays
  • Real Red Cardstock use scrap pieces for holly berries
  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock use scrap pieces for holly berries
  • Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Glimmer Specialty Paper – Gold and Evening Evergreen scraps
  • Gold & Vanilla Satin-Edged Ribbon
  • Adhesive Sheets 
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine or Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine 
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals 
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue 
  • Mini Glue Dots
ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

The in-person class was able to use the same bundle.  However, the holly leaves and berries were stamped then die cut.  That’s what’s wonderful with the Leaves of Holly Bundle, you can stamp the images or just die cut cardstock to create a beautiful card.

For the next several weeks, additional holiday projects will be share so be sure to subscribe to my posts. Plus I’ll be posting info on the January Card Kit To-Go soon!  It will feature a new bundle from the new Mini Catalog.

Candy Cane Holiday Card

Before I get into a brief description of today’s card, do you notice anything different on my blog?  I have a new header!  After 5+ years with my previous blog header, I decided it was time for an update.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think of the new look.

Now on to today’s project…the Candy Cane holiday card is one of the feature projects from this month’s class.  It is also a card featured in the monthly kit to-go.  The Candy Cane Dies and the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper combine to create a beautiful card.  Best of all, the dies coordinate to cut the candy canes from the designer series paper.  Notice in the card photo below, the candy canes face opposite directions…yes, there are two candy cane dies to match! Plus if you purchase the Sweet Candy Cane Bundle which includes the stamp set and dies, there are candy canes stamps facing in opposite directions too. This offers great design flexibility.  I have prepared a video with assembly directions and a tip on adding shine to the candy canes.

Project Materials:
  • Sweet Candy Canes Lane Bundle
  • Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper
  • Christmas Banners Dies
  • Vellum Cardstock
  • Basic White Thick Cardstock
  • Basic White Cardstock
  • Garden Green Cardstock
  • Real Red Cardstock
  • White Glimmer Paper
  • Red Red Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Brightest Glow Stamp Set
  • Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack
  • Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins
  • Flat Jingle Bell Trinkets
