Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Wishes Christmas Card - Sketch Saturday


Hello and WELCOME!  For today's card I decided to use Stampin' Up!'s Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set and Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.  This one was inspired by Sketch Saturday's Sketch Challenge #681.  Want to play along?  

Card Base ~ Real Red Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 2-3/4" x 4-1/2"
Layer 3 ~ Real Red Cardstock ~ 1-5/8" square
Layer 4 ~ Tidings of Christmas DSP ~ 1-1/2" square

  • Stamp the sentiment on Layer 2
  • Follow the directions in the picture below to cut the slots for the ribbon to slide through.  Before making the actual cuts, adhere Layer 4 to Layer 3. (I used a craft knife and thick mat to cut the slots)
  • Adhere Layer 2 to Layer 1. 
  • Slide the ribbon through the slots you made on the square DSP.  Use Glue Dots to attach the ends behind Layer 1.
  • Use Black Twine to tie a bow around the ribbon.  (Don't tie it too tight, it will bunch up the ribbon)
  • Attach Layer 1 to the Card Base with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • OPTIONAL~ use the Take Your Pick Tool to add a Glue Dot behind the square layer, for stability (not required)
  • Add a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. 

Add a 1/2" x 4" strip of DSP across the bottom of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White.  Then, adhere the Basic White inside the card. 

Happy stamping!
