A Banner Christmas

SUO83So the SUO Challenge this time is favorite Sentiment Stamp and I sort of just went with favorite sentiment which, since Christmas is on my mind, my sentiment would be Merry Christmas!   Once I figured out what I wanted to do, this really came together quickly!  I do love these new expression thinlits!  There is nothing like fun polka dots to really make this card feel ‘merry’!

So…here’s the details…

  • Old Olive – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 layer on Cherry Cobbler 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Add to card base.
  • Punch out Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Silver Glimmer dots using the Bitty Circle Punch from the Bitty Punch Pack.
  • Cherry Cobbler 1 3/4 x 4 1/4.  Add to card.
  • Add adhesive backing to back of Silver Glimmer paper.  Run through Big Shot.  I add a shim under the bottom acrylic plate and a double layer of wax paper.  Add Merry to Cherry Cobbler piece.
  • Stamp CHRISTMAS using Early Espresso on Old Olive, cut into a banner, add White Button using Cherry Cobbler/White Baker’s Twine.  Add banner to card.

Check out what the rest of the SUO Challenge Design Team did, get inspired and join the fun!
