Sharing the Joy at Christmas

Sharing the Joy at Christmas! It’s what we all try to do, right? Whether it’s with family, with friends, or brightening the day of a stranger – as they say, ’tis the season!

Today I hope you’ll join our Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge PCC270 – and share some joy!

Sharing the Joy at Christmas

I decided to combine parts from a few of different bundles to create my card.

SHARING THE JOY

Sharing the Joy at Christmas

What’s a holiday without a little shine and sparkle?! I added both, with the foil sheets and glimmer paper.

DETAILS

I followed the sketch pretty closely this time; it was so interesting!

First create a card base with Pacific Point cardstock, then layer a panel of Silver Foil Sheet on top, with Dimensionals. Next, add a panel of Pacific Point cardstock.

Now you want to get your die cutting done. Use the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with the Big Shot, and die cut 1 each of the 3 sizes of snowflakes from Silver Glimmer Paper. Keep a few of the small circles that you punch out of the largest snowflake.  Next, use the Eastern Medallions Thinlits to die cut the 4 pointed shape from Silver Foil Sheet scraps.

Create your sentiment banner from a 3/4″ x 4″ long piece of Vellum cardstock. Cut another banner the same size from the Silver Glimmer Paper. Stamp the sentiment from the Ready for Christmas stamp set in Versamark ink. Cover the stamping with Silver Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool. Use your Paper Snips to cut banner tails on both ends of each banner.

READY TO ASSEMBLE

First, attach the vellum banner to the glimmer banner with Mini Glue Dots. DEMO TIP: To hide the dots, place them strategically behind  the stamped letters. Offset the banners so that the sentiment is slightly above and to the right of the glimmer banner. Next, attach the banners to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To attach the glimmer snowflakes, use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue sparingly on the back of the snowflakes. Once they are attached, you can now attach the 4 pointed silver foil stars, and the few small glimmer circles that you saved from the large snowflake.

ADMIRE YOUR HANDIWORK!

Doesn’t this look beautiful?! I must say, I do love the frosty look of the silver against the blue. Not that I’m bragging on myself, you understand….but I am pleased with  how it turned out! 🙂

By using liquid glue to attach the snowflakes, the ‘bulk’ is kept to a minimum. That way, you could mail this card without extra postage!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to stamp and create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project; whether a 3D item, or a card, or scrapbook page - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you stamp and create with me! :) If you're in Canada, you can Join My Team as a SU! demonstrator. If you're in the Great Vancouver area, you're welcome to join my classes - we always have fun!

    1. Glad you like my snowflake card, Buffy! I do tend to lean more towards silver for sparkle, than gold. Thanks for your comment 🙂

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
