There’s a brand new bundle from Stampin’ Up! that caught my eye from the moment the July-December Mini Catalog came out: The Words of Cheer Bundle. Here’s a card I made recently for a card swap:
The bundle is so cool, because it has two-layer large sentiment dies that can be used in a variety of ways!
In my card above, I used Evening Evergreen cardstock for the ‘happy’ with the pine accents, and the Shimmer Vellum in Soft Succulent, paired with the Foam Adhesive Sheets, for the top ‘happy’ layer. When you run the die, vellum, and double-sided adhesive foam sheet through your Cut n Emboss machine you get a sentiment that really pops! Then you simply peel the bottom adhesive sheet off the die, and stick it to the Evergreen layer, and WOW! It’s a great effect!
I took a 4″ by 5 1/4″ panel of Gray Granite cardstock, and ran it through the Cut and Emboss Machine with the Timber Embossing Folder. I then cut it in half lengthwise to make a 2″ x 5 1/4″ piece. The two Designers Series Papers patterns are from the Tiding of Christmas DSP set, found in the big Annual Catalog. I cut a 3/4″ x 4″ strip of the dark pattern, and a 2 1/4″ x 4″ panel of a different pattern. So many sheets coordinate, it’s fun to mix and match. I adhered all the panels to a Basic White cardstock panel of 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ to make an A2 card. One DSP panel overlaps the others, but that’s okay – you then take the little strip and adhere to the middle, covering up the seam!
I cut out a tag die from the Taylor Made Tags Dies on Evening Evergreen, and heat embossed a greeting from the stamp set with White Embossing Powder. I tied a small length of the 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon in Red through the tag, and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I hope you liked my project! All the products you need to create this yourself can be found at the end of this post.
