Stampin’ Up! Christmas Around the World

I created a really quick and easy card for today using the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper.  And, Christmas Around the World DSP is on the list of papers for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Sale going on right now through October 31st, at Stampin’ Up!  Yippee!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World-Cardiology by Jari

There is no stamping required with this sentiment, just some fussy cutting with your Paper Snips!  Isn’t that cool?  Check out the pattern, there are all sorts of messages on it just waiting to be added to your cards or projects. First,  I dry embossed a panel of Real Red with the Brick Wall TIEF (textured impressions embossing folder), then adhered two coordinating panels from the Christmas Around the World DSP to it with Liquid Glue.

I cut a length of Burlap Ribbon, folded it over, stapled it together, then added some Tear & Tape Adhesive and adhered it to the front of the embossed panel.  Next, I cut out a banner from Real Red using the heart strip die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies and notched one end using my Banner Triple Punch.  The banner was adhered to the sentiment bubble with some Liquid Glue, then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the bubble over the Burlap Ribbon.  One of the cut out hearts from the banner was then added with a dimensional.  Finally, the art panel was popped onto the Real Red card stock base with more dimensionals.

The inside sentiment is from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set, and more hearts were adhered with Liquid Glue.  The Very Vanilla panel was adhered to a panel of Pool Party and then to the card base.  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts is at the end of the post.
