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!

  2. Hey Mary –

    Cute card!! I do have a question for you though. I got the Expression Thinlits with my last order. I tried using them over the weekend running them through the Big Shot but they didn’t punch all the way through. I tried several times. Any idea what I’m doing wrong.

    I had magnetic bottom, then the clear plastic, the paper, the thinlit, and the clear plastic on the top. Part of the word would be cut but the majority of it you could see where there was a line and it was almost cut but it wasn’t.
