12 Days of Christmas, Day #9!

Today I wanted to show you how you can still create an elegant card and goodie set using inks and Whisper White Cardstock. Welcome to Day #9 of my 12 Days of Christmas! For today's projects, I used the Pines & Poinsettia's Stamp Set and the Delicate Doilies Stamp Set:

For the wreath, I stamped using Wild Wasabi Ink and the largest doily image in the Delicate Doilies Stamp Set. I used the 1 3/8" Circle Punch to remove the inside of the doily and then used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch to cut out the doily. Using a Sponge Dauber and Wild Wasabi Ink, I sponged the inside and the outside edges of the wreath:

Before I glued my wreath to my card front, I stamped the swirly image repeatedly in the center of the card front using Cherry Cobbler Ink, directly under where the wreath would be glued in place. I then glued my wreath in place. I stamped the pine cone image on Whisper White Cardstock, hand-cut and glued to my wreath using Stampin' Dimensionals. I also added Rhinestone Jewels around the front of the wreath. The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink.

This goodie box is Pattern #16 from Stampin' Up:

So cute & simple. I stamped around the four edges of the box with the swirly stamp in Cherry Cobbler Ink and also on the top of the handle. I again stamped the pine cone image and hand-cut. Glue in place with Stampin' Dimensionals. I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon on the handle once assembled, to finish off my project!
