Deck the Halls with Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas

I know, it’s a little early to deck the halls, but who can resist the new Carols of Christmas Bundle available now from Stampin’ Up!  Deck the Halls with Carols of Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Basic Black card stock base and adhered a panel of the new Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (available Sept. 1st) to the front.  The black and olive green plaid paper is really fun for Christmas cards, and I like the fact that it is not just for the holiday season.

I used the Card Front Builder Thinlets Dies (part of the Carols of Christmas Bundle) to create the Basic Black card stock frame. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and Versa Mark ink, I stamped Deck the Halls in the center of the frame and sprinkled it with White Emboss powder then heated it until smooth and shiny.  I repeated the stamping sequence with the design above the sentiment and also the flower below it.  

The Basic Black frame was then adhered to another panel from the Merry Little Christmas DSP (available Sept 1st) with liquid glue.

A bow was punched from another panel of  the Merry Little Christmas DSP (available Sept 1st) using my Bow Builder Punch.  Isn’t it the cutest?  Next, the art panel was popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the final step for the front was to add a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center of the flower.

For the inside, I chose a Whisper White panel and stamped the ornament image from Carols of Christmas in Old Olive ink.  The sentiment is from Better Together and also stamped in Old Olive.  A little strip of the plaid paper from the front was adhered to the bottom and then the sentiment panel adhered to the card base.  

Don’t wait too long to Deck the Halls with this great new stamp set!  Details for ordering are below.  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
