Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly and Plaid Tidings Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop our theme is “PLAID”  What a better paper to use than the wonderful Plaid Tidings DSP (it is on sale now too!) I paired it up the the Joyful Holly stamp set.  The combination was fun and this card was oh so fast and easy!  This card will be a  great one to make several to give out during the holidays.

The theme:


Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly and Plaid Tidings:

The recipe:

Card base: Cherry Cobbler 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Art piece: 3-Whisper White 3-3/8 x 4-1/8

Sentiment: Cherry Cobbler 7/8 x approx. 3-1/4  punched with the Triple Banner Punch

The details:

  • Stamp the 2 holly outline images from the Joyful Holly stamp set onto the left hand side of the art piece with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink
  • Stamp the solid holly image from the Joyful Holly stamp set to fill in the holly leaves using Shaded Spruce Ink
  • Stamp the holly berries from the Joyful Holly stamp set using Cherry Cobbler Ink
  • Emboss the art piece with the Subtle Embossing Folder

 The sentiment:

  • Stamp your sentiment using the greeting from the Joyful Holly stamp set with Versa Mark Ink
  • Heat emboss with White Emboss Powder

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere your stacked panel art piece to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Attach your sentiment with glue dots

Finishing touches:
