A Wintery Stampers Showcase Blog Hop

Good morning my crafty friends! It's the last Monday of the Month and that means it's time for the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop!!! YAYAYA!!!

This month's theme is all about this wonderful Holiday/Wintery Season. 

"It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!" My FAVORITE time of year! The lights, the carols, peace on earth, good will toward men, the whole nine yards! I love it all! I cling to the way it used to feel as a child, when everyone was that much kinder to each other. It was, and still is, a magical time.  

Today's card project reminds me of those ol' classic Christmas cards.  The Red and Gold, baubles and bows. Beautiful!

Here's what you'll need: 
*Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4") for card base
* Soft Succulent Cardstock: 5 1/4" x 4" (embossed with the Evergreen Forest folder)
* Real Red Cardstock: 3" x 4 1/4" to die cut ornament
* Gold Foil Sheet: 2 3/4" x 3 7/8" to die cut detailed ornament
* Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4" x 4" for inside layer, 1 1/4" x 1/4" for sentiment strip
* 10" length of 3/8" Shimmery Gold Ribbon for bow

I love using Stampin' Up embossing folders to create lovely textured backgrounds for my cards. It's a terrific way to get a soft subtle background that's not plain and boring! The Evergreen Forest folder adds to the festive feel of this card. 

One of my favorite things is to add lots of layers along with the textures.  This card has plenty of that!  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the Gold Foil layer to the top of the ornament. But you could use adhesive sheets to make the job quicker and easier.  Just attach the same size piece to the back of the paper you're die cutting, and viola! A ready made sticker that's easy to attach wherever you want it. 

The best way to attach bows to a card, in my opinion, is with a Mini Glue Dot. They make quick and easy work of making a bow stick to a project.  Easy Peezy Lemon Squeezy!

"Merry & Bright Christmas"............

"to you and yours" (stamped on the inside of the card). 

I also stamped one of the ornaments from the stamp set, on the inside panel as well as the envelope. 

Remember the golden rule of cardmaking:
