Here's the HOP LIST
I chose to work with two sets from The Craft's Meow. I loved these stamps... and I was so very impressed with how very clean and crisp the images stamped. I will definitely be doing a little shopping!
Inside Christmas - which is packed with wonderful Holiday Sentiments.
The second set I used is Holiday Poinsettia which has lots of great possibilities!
I pulled out my Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas paper collection and Perfect Layer Rulers with my new stamps from The Craft's Meow and went to town! I had a great time just stamping simply and letting the pretty papers along with the layers do all the work.
I used a portion of a Sizzix Circle Stand up Card Die #658843) to create the base of the card. I used MFT's Sweet Stack Labels to frame the sentiment. I used the 1/16" edge of my Perfect Layer Ruler to add the border along the sentiment strip. I hand cut the the rounded corner portions.
Here is the inside with a layered strip of G45 paper along with the beautiful holiday sentiment. Look how crisp and clean that sentiment is! I stamped using Versafine Olympia Green ink.
Here's an up close. I used the 1/16" edge of my Perfect Layer Ruler to add the border along the sentiment strip. I hand cut the the rounded corner portions. A few circle nesties under the sentiment with some foam tape in between layers for dimension. Of course the pretty paper needed a bow too!
This card also uses the Sizzix Circle Stand up Card Die #658843) to create the card base. Having that precut card base sure makes it easy... after that it's just layering and adhering the paper! This is the front of the card closed. That plaid circle was a chipboard piece from the G45 Collection. I've also used a Chestnut Roan cats eye to ink up my edges.
Folding the front flap back, you have plenty of space to write a note. I stamped the pretty poinsettia in the corner using Versafine Crimson Red ink.
Here it is folded up to be displayed. The sentiments you can see in this picture were both stamped with Versafine's Olympia Green. Lots and lots of layering going on made easy withe the rulers!
Here's the up close. Isn't that sentiment so nice!
Here's my last card to share. I framed the sentiment with a Spellbinder's D-Lites Die called Ornamental Tags One. I cut it twice, once in ivory and a second in green. The green is off set and layered behind the ivory giving it a little shadow. I added a little punched border along the bottom edge... but everything else is just layered using my perfect layer rulers!
Here' the inside with another beautiful sentiment from the Inside Christmas set with a few layers added!
Here's the HOP LIST again for you!
