Good Tidings Stampin' Up! Style

Hello and happy Tuesday! I hope you're all doing well. I'm doing the uphill battle with this cold. I have found night time to be worse of course, but we're getting there and now there's hubby that has it to, only his is a man cold! You know the one, the cold that is 10x worse than yours? Yeah, that one. Anyway...I just thank God I have stamping!
Which brings me to today's project! I just love this stamp set. I has so many possibilities but today, I wanted to show you a card that keeps it really simple but still packs a bit of wow with the sentiment serving as the focal point while highlighting some of our beautiful designer series paper. (Right now, through October 31st, Stampin' Up! has several of our DSP on sale Buy 3 Get 1 Free; unfortunately this isn't one of them)


Begin with a standard card base of 8." x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.25" and layer with a piece of Old Olive cut 4" x 5.25" run through the Big Shot with the Oh My Stars embossing folder. Then layer a piece of the Merry Little Christmas DSP cut 2.25" x 4" onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 2.5" x 4". Add another piece of the DSP (I used the flip side of the Old Olive design) cut at 1.75" x 3.25" and adhere at an angle. Finally, stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then, for the Holly, stamp the greenery (this is a two step stamp) with Old Olive ink, stamp off for the first layer, then full strength for the second stamp. Then, using Real Red ink, do the same for the berries, as these are also a 2 step stamp. Run this through the Big Shot with the Layering Circles Framelits and add to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
I hope you enjoyed today's card. If so, please leave a comment and I would love for you to join my mailing list for more fun ideas like this one. 
Have an amazing day and Happy Stamping,
