Hello! This is day 2 of my 15-day Christmas Card Making Challenge. Today I am using Circle Punches and Designer Series Paper to make a shiny Holiday card.
This brightly gleaming Holiday card is made with the Dove of Hope stamp set (#153406) and the aptly named Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper (#150429).
Measurements: Mossy Meadow Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Very Vanilla CS: two at 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 4 inches; Brushed Metallic CS in copper: 2 5/8 x 5 1/8 inches and 2 3/4 x 4 inches; Brightly Gleaming DSP: 2 1/2 x 5 inches. The bow is made with the Old Olive ribbon from the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack.
Use the Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the sentiment “Peace On Earth” onto the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Stamp the branch below the sentiment as shown.
Use the 2 inch Circle Punch to punch out the sentiment. Set aside.
Stamp a branch onto the upper right-hand corner of one of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS pieces. Add the ornament and the sentiment. This is the inside of the card.
Adhere the Brightly Gleaming DSP to the Brushed Metallic CS, then adhere them to the second 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS card piece.
Use the Bone Folder to fold the Mossy Meadow CS card base in half at the 4 1/4 inch score line. Open the card base and adhere the 4 x 51/4 inch Very Vanilla inside card piece to the inside of the card base.
Adhere the prepared Very Vanilla CS and DSP card piece to the front of the Mossy Meadow CS card base.
Use the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch to punch out a circle from the 2 3/4 x 4 inch copper Brushed Metallic CS. Adhere the “Peace On Earth” circle to the copper circle.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment piece to the card front. Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow. Note: I made a double bow by using the Bow-Easy™© by the Posi-Bendr Company.
Now for the Bling! Even though the Gilded Gems are gold and the card is more copper-colored, I thought the gems would add some more sparkle.
Use the Take Your Pick tool to easily transfer the Gilded Gems from the acetate to the front of your card.
Viola! You have a brightly gleaming Holiday card to wish some “Peace On Earth” to someone this Holiday season!
