There's a Christmas swap at the Stampin' Up convention this year. I wanted to join because I'm hosting a 4-session Christmas card stamp-a-stack and I can always use some ideas. I can't wait to see what I get!!
I stamped the shepherds and lambs in Cherry Cobbler onto a Very Vanilla panel. I used my Stamp-a-ma-Jig to line up the sentiment and stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I cut a 1.5" strip of striped DSP from the Typset Specialty Series Papers and flagged it with the Banner Triple Punch. I cut a 1" strip of Gold Foil and flagged it, too. I adhered the gold banner to the striped banner and tied a length of Basic Black Stitched Satin Ribbon around them both before adhering this to the card.
I layered this onto a Basic Black mat and then onto a Cherry Cobbler card base. I used a glue dot to adhere a Gold Foil star punched with the star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack.
