Fab and Bright

#stampinup   I was glad to see a sketch that I could use as a design for Christmas cards on this week's Fab Friday challenge blog. I'm deep into Christmas card making mode!!

As soon as I saw the Fab Friday sketch, I grabbed my "Lots of Joy" stamp set and got to work! I started by stamping two plaid trees in Old Olive onto Whisper White. I punched these out with the Tree Punch. Next I stamped one of the sentiments in Real Red onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.

I added a Merry Moments Designer Series Paper panel as the backdrop to the design to a Real Red mat.  I tied a length of Real Red 1/4" Cotton Ribbon around the panel before adhering it to an Old Olive card base.

I punched three Daffodil Delight stars with the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and adhered them to the card with Glue Dots. Finally, I arranged all my elements and adhered them with Stampin' Dimensionals.
