Today’s project is a holiday card using the Making Every Day Bright stamp set. World Card Making Day is coming up, October 6th, and I thought it would be a good idea to make a holiday card in non-traditional Christmas colors. Besides, my grandmother, on my father’s side, preferred white Christmas trees with blue lights and silver tinsel.

Merry & Bright

 

Stampin’ Up’s new Blueberry Bushel is the card base. The envelope is decorated with a piece of In Colors 6X6″ Designer Series Paper, in matching Blueberry Bushel.

I stamped the lightbulbs in Blueberry Bushel ink on Whisper White cardstock, stamping off, so their color would vary a bit. Our Christmas Bulb Punch was fun to use for cutting. 

 

For the background, I stamped the electrical cord (Making Every Day Bright) in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then, I embossed it with the Simple Stripes embossing folder. Yes, I stamped the Pineapple Punch rays (Making Every Day Bright) right on top of the embossed stripes. The rays needed to be in a certain spot, so the lines actually helped with placement.

 

The sentiment, “Merry and Bright,” is from The Hearts Come Home stamp set, which I stamped in Blueberry Bushel, and cut with a scalloped Layering Ovals die. The foliage around the sentiment was cut from Whisper White cardstock using Pretty Pines dies. I added seven Rhinestone Jewels for extra brightness.

 

World Card Making Day is the theme at Festive Friday, so I will play along there.

 

Every day is card making day for me. If you don’t have a demonstrator, I’d love for you to join my team. Send me a message, so I can help you get started!
