Happy Wonderful Christmas


This card was made as an inspiration card for Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch challenge #46 whose theme is "Christmas in July". I turned the sketch 90 degrees to allow the sentiment to fit horizontally.



I had some gorgeous gold foiled holiday paper left over from the Stampin' Up! (SU) 2018 "Joyous Noel" specialty designer series paper (DSP) that I thought would make a great background for this card.

I used my SU tag punch to cut some gold foil paper, then stamped the holiday sentiment using Versamark ink that I dusted with gold detail embossing powder and heat set.

The gray banner behind the tag is from the sketch, and was die cut using a banner die. It was glued to the front panel, then the gold tag was attached with pieces of adhesive foam strip. The final touch was a piece of wired gold ribbon tied through the notch in the tag.

The card was super easy to make, so it's appropriate for beginners. I am rating it's difficulty level as a "1" out of a possible "5". In person the card is sparkly and very much in the holiday spirit!
