Happy Christmas Wishes

Deliver a delightfully-decorated Christmas container to a friend or neighbor! First, use the Just Jade Stampin’ Spot from the kit to ink up the pine branch pair from the Cherish the Season Stamp Set. Stamp all over a piece of Just Jade Cardstock to create a pine branch pattern. After filling a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box with your thoughtful gift, close the box and secure the stamped Just Jade Cardstock around the box to create gift wrap. Then, wrap a piece of Embroidered Ribbon around the box twice before tying a beautiful bow! Set aside. 

Use a circle shape from the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a cable-knit tag from one of the kit’s white embossed elements. After taking a die-cut Christmas floral piece from the merry Christmas greeting card kit and adhering it to the tag, cut a rectangle shape from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Use the kit’s stamp set and Stampin’ Spot to stamp a cheerful Christmas greeting onto the cut cardstock, then use dimensionals to attach it to the tag. Add a few Wonderful Gems for some festive flair, punch a hole at the top of the tag using the Label Me Fancy Punch, then string the gold cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack through the hole and tie to the box’s Embroidered Ribbon bow. Your perfectly-packaged gift is ready for a special delivery!

To You, With Love

Use components from this joyful Christmas card kit to create a heartwarming card for Valentine’s Day! Start by creating a card base from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. After adding Cherry Cobbler ink to the Christmas floral stamp from the kit’s stamp set, stamp in a pattern across the middle of the card front. (Tip: To create a faded look, stamp the image onto a piece of scrap paper before stamping onto your card front.) Set aside, then cut a rectangle from Whisper White Cardstock. Ink up the same Christmas floral stamp you used earlier, this time with Soft Suede ink. Stamp onto the cardstock multiple times to create a pattern, then let dry. 

Add color to your floral-patterned accent piece with Stampin’ Blends! Use Petal Pink to fill in the flowers, Granny Apple Green for the leaves, Cherry Cobbler on the berries, and Pool Party for the background. Once complete, adhere to the center of your Cherry Cobbler card. Set aside, then pull the scalloped heart shape from the Be Mine Stitched Dies. Cut a scalloped heart from Vellum Cardstock, then adhere to the center of the card. After stamping the kit’s “to you” sentiment in Soft Suede onto a small piece of Whisper White Cardstock, use dimensionals to attach it to the left part of the heart. Adhere a gold foil “amour” from the kit underneath the stamped “to you”, then finish it off with the kit’s red linen thread tied in a bow. Voila! Your Valentine is sure to love this card.

Merry Christmas

Create a sweet and simple Christmas card with lots of lovely layers! First, create a card base from Just Jade Cardstock. Then, cut two rectangle shapes of the same size—slightly smaller than your card front—from Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White Cardstock. Set aside the Just Jade and Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. 

Ink up the Christmas wreath stamp from the merry Christmas greeting card kit’s stamp set with a Mint Macaron Classic Stampin’ Pad. Then, press a Sponge Dauber into the kit’s Just Jade Stampin’ Spot and add ink to the leaves of the stamp. Use another Sponge Dauber to add Real Red ink to the stamp’s berries. (Tip: Before stamping, huff the stamp with your breath to moisten and blend the ink.) Once the stamp is multicolored, stamp it onto the center of your Whisper White Cardstock. After it’s dried, stamp the kit’s “merry Christmas” sentiment over the wreath in Early Espresso ink. Layer the paper pieces onto the card front, then add a piece of metallic Copper grosgrain ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack to the front of the card. Send to a friend and make their Christmas merry!
