Good morning! Stamptember might be over but Simon Says Stamp has just released a FABULOUS holiday release, Making Spirits Bright, that makes October almost as exciting as September! 😉 I’ll be back Friday with an exciting blog hop but wanted to pop in with one of my first cards using the holiday release!
This isn’t a new technique but it’s one that I’ve never tried before and I thought these dies would be perfect for it! I started by die-cutting the Fa La La word die from white cardstock four times and from Lipstick Red cardstock once. I also stamped the sentiment from onto Lipstick Red cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder before trimming it down to a small label. To assemble the card I first adhered the red Fa La La exactly where I wanted it on the card panel and then arranged the white words around it. I used liquid adhesive to adhere the die-cuts which gave me a few extra seconds to play around with placement before the seal became permanent. Then I trimmed off the bits of the word dies that hung off the side of the panel and finished the card by adhering the rest of the sentiment label with foam mounting tape.
I’m starting to get into frenzy mode for building up my Christmas card stash and easy cards like this are perfect! I really love the way this card turned out and I look forward to trying a similar design with other Christmas word dies! 🙂
