Thinking of You... Christmas

Getting very close to Christmas & knowing that it will be here before we know it, I thought I would attempt to create some of my cards.  The stamp set I've used for this card is one of the new ones & is so perfect for this time of the year!

Card -
Base Card - Early Expresso - 8 1/4" x 4 1/4" or 20.9cm x 10.5cm - once scored & folded in half longways
Layer 1 - Old Olive - 4" x 3 7/8" or 10cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 3 7/8" x 3 3/4" or 9.5cm x 9cm
Layer 3 - Old Olive - 2 5/8" x 2 1/8" or 6.5cm x 5cm
Layer 4 - Whisper White - 2 1/2" x 2" or 6cm x 4.5cm

Inside -
Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 4" or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 1 - DSP - 1 1/2" x 4" or 3.5cm x 10cm

I stamped a partial image onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Old Olive Ink, punched along one side of the DSP using my Scallop Border Punch & adhered to the piece of Whisper White.  This piece will be adhered to the inside of the card once it has been completed.

After my Base Card had been scored down the middle & folded in half longways, I punched along the bottom part of the card using my Scallop Edge Punch.  I then applied white dots to it using my Gel Pen.  This was then set aside to dry.

With Snail Adhesive, I adhered the DSP piece to the piece of Old Olive Cardstock, attached a piece of Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon towards the top & tied a knot on the RHS.  This whole piece was then adhered to the Base Card - Early Expresso.

I inked the image in Early Expresso Ink, stamped direct onto the small piece of Whisper White Cardstock, adhered to the piece of Old Olive Cardstock with Stick Strip & using SU Dimensionals adhered to the card as per the photo.  I chose not to colour the image.

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Early Expresso Ink, punched it out using the Scallop Oval Punch & applied to a piece of Old Olive Cardstock which had been punched with the same punch & cut down the middle.  This was adhered to the bottom of the card using SU Dimensionals.

The card may look a little complicated to make, but all in all, a very easy, fast card for Christmas!
