Bright Baubles, Delicate Baubles, Christmas Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Don't you love it when right in the middle of your card making you decide to do a color change?  I was going to use Night of Navy to make this card. It's a very rich color but I thought it was too dark. So I grabbed a piece of Pacific Point and back to work I went.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  Then I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pacific Point card stock.  

A Basic White piece of card stock was cut at 3-3/4" x 5".  I stamped the words on the bottom using Pacific Point ink. I do not know what stamp set this came from. I know it's retired. I had a little note inside my Stamparatus that said where it came from so I could put it back but it's gone! UGH!  So I will just keep it inside my Stamparatus until the set is located. It's here, it's just a matter of taking the time to go through all the sets to see where it goes. That's not happening!  I'll run across it and then it will find it's home!  Anyway, I stamped the words using Pacific Point ink.

The Basic White piece as then textured using a retired snow swirl embossing folder. You can use any folder you like. I just happened to find this one yesterday and I liked it. It just seemed to fit well with the die cut.  Though I do recommend die cutting the piece before embossing it.

The bulb circle/oval was cut using the die from the "Delicate Baubles" dies.  I taped this piece to the Pacific Point piece and then to the front of the card base.

I die cut the "Joy" bulb from the "Delicate Baubles" die set using silver foil card stock. I did use a double sided sticky sheet for the back of the silver card stock so I could make this a sticker for easer placement.  The image was set in place on top of the opening in the Basic White piece.

A bow was tied and set in place using a couple of glue dots and the card was done.

This is a very quick and easy card to make. You can make up a bunch for your Holiday card in no time.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas card,

Yesterday's and today's cards are both beautiful! I definitely saved this as an idea to use with other SU ornament dies.
