Christmas is the most Wonderful Time of the year in my opinion. I love the lights, the music, the carols, the familiar songs that you’ve sung for years and years that you miraculously still know all the words….and of course….Christmas cards! It’s the Most Wonderful Time is also the name of a medley of products in the 2019 Holiday catalog.
The medley consists of the Most Wonderful Time Stamp set, coordinating dies, 48 sheets of 6” x 6” double sided paper – 8 each of 6 designs, 12 gold foil cards, gold tinsel trim and sticker sheets with deer, candy canes, flowers, stars, trees, and adhesive backed stars. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this medley. One of the things I did with this medley was to make a set of 6 mini cards – 3” x 3“. Today I’m sharing just 3 of the cards. Stayed tuned to my blog for the other three cards, plus the cute box I made to store them in…..or maybe gift them in!
The cards are each 3” x 3”, the perfect size to put on small gift bag or present. The paper has gold elements to it, so I also used some pieces of Gold Foil Sheets to add a little shine.
The paper is so beautiful that you don’t need much to decorate it. I added a piece of Gold Foil as a background layer to bring out the gold foil accents in the Designer Series Paper. A little sentiment tied with a piece of Gold thread and you’re done.
This card used one of the flower stickers that was included in the medley. I used the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes dies and layered it on top of a slightly larger circle of Gold Foil. I also added a few Metallic Pearls to complete the card.
And the last card is one of my favorite ones. It would look great on a small bag of sweets! The little candy canes on the paper are so cute and matched with a background of Red Foil, it makes it a little more fun.
If you’d like to make these cards, this is what you’ll need:
- Most Wonderful Time Product Medley
- Stitched Shapes Dies
- Candy Cane Builder Punch (or use one of the stickers)
- Whisper White Thick, Old Olive and Real Red Cardstocks – Cut 3” x 6”, Fold and Score at 3”.
- Gold Foil – or Red Foil – Cut 2 3/4” x 2 3/4”
- Most Wonderful Time Designer Series Paper – Cut 2 5/8” x 2 5/8”
- Punch the Foil Circles out of the background foil pieces
- Whisper White Cardstock Cut 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” – (for Stitched Circle) and a piece 2 3/4” x 2 3/4” (inside of card)
- Real Red Ribbon
- Snail Adhesive, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals
This is a great project if you have smaller pieces of Designer Series Paper or cardstock that you need to use up. You can either put them in an envelope or simply punch a hole in the top left corner, add some pretty ribbon and you have a great gift tag!
