Welcome to what is the last hop for Stampin Friends in 2021. But don’t worry we will be back with new projects in January 2022. For November hop we are Celebrating the Season wherever we are. I hope you can from Maureen Rauchfuss’s blog! Her projects are amazing. If not be sure to visit, And make sure you visit after mine.
My projects use the suite from Stampin Up called Gingerbread and Peppermint. You can find this Suite in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
I decided to make a slimline card,
I used Crumb Cake for the card base 8x9 1/4
score on the 8” side at 4.
For the layers I used Old Olive 3 3/4x9
then I layered 2 pieces of DSP 3 3/4x 4 1/2. Adhere one to the top half of the old olive and one for the bottom half.
You will have a piece of CS left from the crumb cake and old olive. Cut the old olive to 2x3 3/4 and layer the piece of crumb cake 1 3/4x3 3/8.
I used the coordinating sides from the suite to cut the shapes from the DSP. I stamped the greeting in real red, Add the ruffled ribbon in a bow and added some rhinestones to finish it off. I also cut a few more shapes to line the inside of the card.
See photo below.
I plan to add a gift card as well. I will add to a large cellophane bag and tie with a bow before giving as a gift to my son’s bus driver.
I hope you enjoyed my projects. Be sure to continue to Melissa Thomas's Blog. Her projects are beautiful.
Thanks for joining us today. I hope we inspired you to create!
Happy Holidays and Happy Stampin
