Hi Stampers, wow, what a week this has been! I am so glad the weekend is finally here. This week, not one but two, coffee pots broke on us this week. Our main coffee pot (the Ninja Coffee Bar) and our backup (Cuisinart) quit working! As someone, who needs coffee to wake up in the morning, this was NOT GOOD! I’m a hard core drinker, I take mine plain – no cream or sugar. Are you a coffee drinker? If so, how do you take your coffee? Let me know in the comments.
On to my card… This card starts with a Real Red card base, followed by a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Whisper White and a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ layer of Tis the Season Designer Series Paper. I then stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and punched it out with the 1-1/2″ circle punch. The sleigh, from the Wishes & Wonder stamp set, was stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
Next, I got out my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine and the North Pole Wonder dies to die cut the tag out of Whisper White CS, the leaves from Mossy Meadow CS (with Adhesive Sheet on the back) and the dear out of Brushed Metallic CS. After attaching a piece of ribbon to the top of my tag, I adhered the tag and then the sleigh to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals. A single stampin’ dimensional was added to the circle sentiment (towards the right side) and then attached to the card front (this made the stampin’ dimensional attach to the DSP and the rest of the circle lay over the tag. Finally, the leaves were tucked under the tag and sleigh and then the reindeer was added last.
Stampin’ Tip: For the sleigh, I die cut out my Gold Embossed sleigh and then stamped it again onto the Red Velvet Paper and fussy cut out the center of the sleigh to glue over the Gold Embossed one.
Inside the card is another sentiment and the leaves stamped in Shaded Spruce ink and then the reindeer stamped in the lower right corner using Early Espresso ink.
