For today’s card, I used One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Paper. It’s an Online Exclusive product, and tomorrow, September 6, there will be new additions. You can watch the YouTube Video below for more details.

I began by cutting a piece of One Horse Open Sleigh DSP, in a Crumb Cake pattern, using a Christmas Classic Die.

Colors of the Season


Next, I cut a second pattern, trees in the color of Pool Party, with a Stylish Shapes Die. This 2 3/8″ X 2 3/8″ square fits nicely in the Christmas Classics die-cut. After gluing them together, I placed it on Dimensionals.


The background is a third piece of One Horse Open Sleigh DSP, 4″ X 5 1/4″. Before gluing it to the Blackberry Bliss card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I used a Christmas Classics label die to cut a piece for the sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment, from the Christmas Classics Stamp Set, in Blackberry Bliss Ink. Prior to gluing “Season’s Greetings” back in the hole, I layered it on three pieces of cardstock, so it would have dimension.

The last step was attaching four Iridescent Pearls. 


I was inspired by TGIF.
