Delightful Decorations

I really like the way this card came out and of course had to use one of my favorite stamp set during this holiday season (Baroque Motifs - LOVE that big swirl).
This card will be part of the Holiday Card Kit.

So this card is made up of the following Stampin' Up! product:
  • Baroque Motifs stamp set
  • Delightful Decorations stamp set (from the Holiday Mini)
  • Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper (from the Holiday Mini)
  • Ornament Punch (from the Holiday Mini)
  • Chocolate Chip Craft Ink
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Gold Cord (retired)
  • Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware (retired)
  • Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon
  • Close to Cocoa Cardstock

It was fairly easy to make...the ribbon tying is the most time consuming part of the project.

  1. Cut a standard card size of Close to Cocoa.
  2. Then cut a 4 x 4 piece of patterned paper (soft suede and white) and a 2-1/2 x 4 piece of patterned paper with the holly. Lay one on top of other, depending on how much of the holly paper you want to show, and then adhere to leave the panel 4 x 5-1/4.
  3. Then stamp Baroque Motifs in Chocolate Chip Ink in the upper left and lower right corners. Cover with Clear Embossing Powder and heat.
  4. Wrap Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon and strip og gold cord around the panel threading through the hardware buckle (adhere in back).
  5. Then on piece of red patterned paper from the Specialty pack and stamp 2 ornaments in Chocolat Chip Craft Ink and emboss. Punch out with the ornament punch. Then, tie a bow in gold cord around the top of each. Then cut 2 other pieces to adhere behind the ornsments and then adhere to the back.
  6. Adhere the panel to card front using SNAIL adhesive. Then adhere ornaments to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Happy Stamping!
