Falling For The Holidays BYSHC Hop!

The Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers team is at it again! Welcome to our Fall blog hop.

My first card this hop features the incredibly cute Gingerbread & Peppermint suite of products along with the Merriest Moments stamp set. The Gingerbread DSP actually made this card really easy and quick – something I REALLY like about it! Read on to find out more details on how I made this super cute card!

When I saw the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP I immediately knew I had to have it. The patterns are not only super cute but it also just gave me all the nostalgic feelings – which is perfect for Christmastime. I still remember my first Christmas with my husband, and he was begging for Gingerbread cookies which I had NEVER made before. He actually bought me a mixer just to make his special cookies. They’ve now become a family tradition! The Gingerbread dies make it super easy to cut out the larger images of the DSP, as they match perfectly. So I took the outline of the snowflake and cut out the gingerbread snowflake from the DSP. I made a stack of circles from the Layering Circles Dies and then used my Stampin’ Blends to splatter some Real Red and Cinnamon Cider onto it. This reminded me of a sugar cookie with sprinkles on it for some reason! I then mounted my gingerbread snowflake onto the circle stack with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the main layer, I used a 2″ piece of the peppermint DSP and placed it onto a piece of Basic White which had been embossed with our new Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. The “rickrack” strip of paper was made using our Basic Borders dies. I cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider to 3/4″ wide, and then cut the border twice, staggering just slightly to give that rickrack appearance. After adhering the DSP/Cinnamon/white layer to the card base, I then adhered the circle/snowflake stack with Stampin Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped it onto a piece of Real Red cardstock in Versamark Ink, then sprinkled on White Embossing powder and heat set. After that, I cut out the sentiment using the new Pretty Pillow Box dies. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment label up the same height as the circle stack and let it slightly overlap.
