I used the Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings stamp set to create a card for our Merry Christmas themed blog hop for this month.
Good Tidings is such a beautiful stamp set with an awesome focal sentiment, don’t you think? One of my team members featured this stamp set in a recent blog hop we did together and her colors inspired me when I was creating this card. See Kristi’s card HERE.
I love the green, black and red colors Stampin’ Up! chose for Christmas cards this year. Stamp the holly leaf solid image in Old Olive, then stamp the second detail stamp in Basic Black. Stamp the solid berries in Real Red, then stamp the second berry image on top in Cherry Cobbler. The stem was stamped in Early Expresso for both of the images, then I fussy cut the whole thing out with Paper Snips. Create the smaller holly image using the same basic colors.
(Hint: stamp onto Whisper White Thick card stock)
A panel of the Merry Music Specialty DSP was adhered to the front of my Whisper White Thick card stock base. The largest sentiment from Good Tidings was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Whisper White, then the panel was adhered to the front with liquid glue. I cut one of the Foil Snowflakes in half and also added it with liquid glue. The large holly image was popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A bow was then created with some of the Old Olive 1/8″ sheer ribbon, Silver Sequin Trim and a small length of Black Baker’s Twine and adhered with a glue dot.
The inside Whisper White panel was stamped with the smaller sentiment from Good Tidings in Basic Black, then another holly with berries was stamped directly above the sentiment. Enjoy!
Now, for more of the hop. We hope you enjoy all of your stops today!
