Hello and a good Sunday to you! Welcome to day two of our three day weekend. I think it’s going a little quicker that I would prefer but what can you do?! I still have lots to do before Tuesday becomes this weeks Monday so let start today’s post. As you know I’m a big fan of non-tradiotional Holiday colors so for today I’m posting some 3 x 3 cards that would make nice note cards or gift tags. I was inspired by a card that I saw in the August issue of our Demonstrator magazine, Stampin’ Success. I made a few modifications but kept the layout basically the same. I started with a base of Sahara Sand Card Stock cut to 6″ x 3″. Using the Large Scallop Edgelits Dies I took off about 1/4″ from the end of each one and used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce along the scallop. I then scored them and added a piece of Lucky Limeade under the scallop to make them 3 x 3 again. The layers in the middle are built using the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. I used Early Espresso for the bottom and pierced the edges. The next layer is Primrose Petals and again is pierced and adhered to the bottom layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ornaments are from the Keepsake Ornaments Stamp Set and are all stamped in Lucky Limeade and cut out with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies. They too are mounted to the Primrose Layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The merry is from the Pennant Parade Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and adhered with some SNAIL. They look like they are more work than they are, the Framelits make cutting everything out a breeze. I hope that you are enjoying the non-traditional Holiday projects and that it’s making you think outside the box! Thank you very much for visiting today and enjoy!
