Holly Jolly Wishes -- 'Tis The Season To Be Jolly

Hi There!

As promised, today's post features another idea for using the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set with the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks.  The Peaceful Prints Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper is also used for the Buffalo check and fun Deer accent.  You can earn this great pack of Designer Series Paper with a merchandise purchase of $50 USD while supplies last or prior to the end of September, whichever comes first.  I just love that the deer that you see on the card front was punched from one of the fun prints contained in the Designer Series Paper using the coordinating Deer Builder punch.

Matte Finish (white) Embossing Paste was applied over the diamond dot pattern mask from the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks.  To do this, center the Garden Green cardstock panel at the center of the Silicone Craft Sheet.  Place the mask over the cardstock and anchor in place with repositionable tape or Washi tape.  Pick up some embossing paste with the palette knife and close the embossing paste jar.  Working quickly, use the palette knife to spread the embossing paste evenly over the cardstock.  Immediately remove the mask and wash off the excess embossing paste from the mask, palette knife, and silicone craft sheet with clear water.  Set the panel aside to dry -- it takes about 30 minutes.

Mat the embossed panel with a slightly larger panel of Basic Black cardstock and adhere at the center of the Cherry Cobbler card front.  Adhere a strip of Buffalo Check paper with a slightly larger mat of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  The right and left ends of the strip are flush with the right and left ends of the mat.  Adhere the strips along the center of a slightly larger mat of Basic Black cardstock.  The right and left ends of the strips are flush with the right and left ends of the Basic Black cardstock.  Adhere the strips across the embossed panel with the bottom edge of the Basic Black mat 1-3/8" above the bottom edge of the embossed panel and the right and left ends of the strips flush with the right and left sides of the embossed panel.

Die cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the 2-7/8" straight edge die from the Layering Circles dies and mat with a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock die cut with the 3-1/16" scallop circle die.  Adhere a Wonderful Snowflake at the center of the Basic Black circle and adhere the circles to the card front with the bottom edge of the scallop circle 1-1/16" above the bottom edge of the embossed panel and the right edge of the scallop circle 1/8" from the right edge of the embossed panel.  Stampin' Dimensionals were used for the part of the circles above the horizontal strips and Stampin' Seal for the part of the circles on top of the horizontal strips.

The " 'Tis The Season To Be Jolly" greeting was stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut with the 1-5/8" straight edge circle die and matted with a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock die cut with the 1-3/4" scallop circle die.  The greeting circles were adhered at the lower right corner of the larger circles using Stampin' Seal for the part of the circles on top of the larger circles and a Stampin' Dimensional for the part of the circles over the embossed panel.  The bottom edge of the greeting circles is 1-5/16" above the bottom edge of the embossed panel and the right edge of the greeting circles is 1/16" from the right edge of the horizontal strips.

As mentioned above, one of the prints in the Peaceful Prints Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper contains Buffalo Check deer on a Basic White background with scattered Basic Black snowflakes.  The Deer Builder punch was used to punch one of the deer from the printed paper.  The Deer Builder punch was also used to punch a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  The paper deer was adhered to the Basic Black deer using Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.  The deer was adhered near the upper left of the Basic Black/Cherry Cobbler/Snowflake circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Three small Cherry Cobbler rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels were adhered to the embossed panel to create a visual triangle around the circles.

A strip of Garden Green Buffalo Check tree print was adhered near the bottom edge of a panel of Basic White cardstock with the bottom edge of the strip 3/16" above the bottom edge of the panel and the right and left edges of the strip flush with the right and left edges of the panel.

The Deer Builder punch was used to punch the deer from the Buffalo Check print paper from the Peaceful Prints Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper and adhered near the lower left corner of the panel with the outer edge of the left leg 3/8" from the left edge of the panel and the lowest hoof 1/4" above the bottom edge of the panel.

The "Fa la la la la La La La La" sentiment was stamped to the right of the deer using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

HollyJollyWishes_TisTheSeasonToBeJolly_Envelope

A piece of the Buffalo Check deer on Basic White background with scattered Basic Black snowflakes was adhered to the envelope flap of the Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim away the excess paper using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.
