Open House Contempo Christmas

Sorry for the delay in getting back with these, but here is card three from the weekend! It just so happens to use Contempo Christmas & Jolly Holiday DSP which are one of the bundles from the ABC's of the Perfect Handmade Holiday Special. Get yours today-this is a GREAT combo-so many options!!


Card base is Old Olive, background is one of the strip prints from the Jolly Holiday DSP. The Cherry Cobbler square was cut with the new Scallop Square Duo die. A Very Vanilla square sits inside the Cherry scallop square. The ornament was stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Vanilla. We added two medium rhinestones, attached the ornament to a Decorative Label of Old Olive and attached to the Vanilla square with Dimensionals. We used the Paper Piercer and the soft mat from the Mat Pack and punched holes in the scallops. For the saying, we stamped Merry Christmas in Old Olive on Vanilla and punched with the Wide Oval. We used the Paper Piercer and the grid guide & soft mat from the Mat Pack and punched a line of holes under the Merry Christmas and then layered it onto a Cherry Cobbler Decorative Label punch. Attach your large scallop square very near the top, and the saying very near the bottom so that you have room for a strip of Cherry Cobber Seam Binding across the center. I attached it just to the back of the DSP with Snail.  Next we added a string of the Silver Tinsel Trim, again attaching to the back of the DSP. Apply plenty of Snail and attach the DSP to the card base. Lastly, tie a small piece of Silver Tinsel Trim in a knot in the center of the strip across the card. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm working on Blog Tour projects today, have a couple of tours coming up! More details this coming week on both. Last Open House project will post tomorrow!
