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!

  1. Love this project. The clean look of all that white with that beautiful doily wreath that just pops off the front makes for a really lovely Christmas card.
