Quick Christmas Cards and Tags Using Wonder of the Season Paper by Stampin’ Up! (from the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog)

As someone who loves to use old book pages in my junk journals, when I saw Wonder of the Season 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper in the new Stampin’ Up! Aug-Dec Mini Catalog, I knew I had to have it! It’s has pages with Christmas stories, recipes and holiday news stories, and there are pages with red foil on one side and black and white print on the other side and also gold foil pages. It can be found on page 31 of the catalog and is part of the Wonder of the Season Suite. I was able to make 2 cards and tags in a short amount of time.

I started the first card by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Wonder of the Season 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper to 5 x 5-1/2″, ripped approximately 3/8″ from the top and bottom of it and adhered it on a diagonal to the card base, trimming off any excess. I cut a piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ Vellum to 5 x 4-3/4 and ripped the top and bottom again so it is shorter than the pattern piece.

I fussycut the ornaments found on one of the red foil pages of the Wonder of the Season 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper and diecut “Merry Christmas” from Red Foil Sheets with the Word Wishes Dies. I adhered the sentiment and the ornaments to the vellum piece and adhered the vellum to the card, only adding glue behind the diecut and image and trimming off any excess from the sides. I finished it off by adding Pearls (discontinued). I colored some of them with Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends.

I left the inside of the card blank and just stamped a sentiment from the Tree Angle stampset with Real Red Stampin’ Ink.

Dimensions

I also made a cute tag to match this card. I cut a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 2 x 3-5/8″ then using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to make it into a pretty tag. Then cut a piece of Wonder of the Season 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper to 2-1/2 x 2-3/4″and a piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ Vellum to 2-1/2 x 2-3/4 and ripped the top and bottom of both pieces and adhered the pattern piece on a diagonal to the card base, trimming off any excess. I added a piece of Red Foil Sheets, measuring 3/16 x 2-1/16″.

I fussycut a tree found on one of the red foil pages of the Wonder of the Season 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the vellum piece and adhered the vellum to the tag, only adding glue behind the image and trimming off any excess from the sides. I finished it off by adding Pearls (discontinued) and stamping “TO” and “FROM” from the Make A Difference Stampset with Memento Black Ink. I added a piece of red and white twine as well.


Since I loved this paper so much I had to make more cards. I made one with the gold foil paper too.

I started the second card by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Wonder of the Season 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper to 5 x 5-1/2″, ripped approximately 3/8″ from the top and bottom of it and adhered it on a diagonal to the card base, trimming off any excess. I cut a piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ Vellum to 5 x 4-3/4 and ripped the top and bottom again so it is shorter than the pattern piece.

I fussycut the ornaments found on one of the red foil pages of the Wonder of the Season 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper and diecut “Merry Christmas” from Gold Foil Sheets with the Word Wishes Dies. I adhered the sentiment and the ornaments to the vellum piece and adhered the vellum to the card, only adding glue behind the diecut and image and trimming off any excess from. the sides. I finished it off by adding dots with a Tsukineko Versamark Versamarker and added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed.

I left the inside of the card blank and just stamped a sentiment from the Tree Angle stampset with Versamark Ink and added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed.

I also made a cute tag to for this card. I did the same exact thing except I used I added a piece of Gold Foil Sheets to the bottom, measuring 3/16 x 2-1/16″. I also I fussycut a gold tree and again made dots used the Tsukineko Versamark Versamarker and added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed and stamped “TO” and “FROM” from the Make A Difference Stampset with Memento Black Ink. I added a piece of Gold Metallic Trim as well.

DIY: Super Easy Christmas Wreaths

Hello friends. This weekend I made some very cute mini Christmas wreaths for some new decorations. I love to decorate with wreaths and I especially enjoy adding mini ones to doors Inside my home. They enhance your decor without being too in your face. They are also easy to store when you have limited space.

These were super easy to make and inexpensive. The supplies I used are mini wreaths, 25-30mm Ornaments, 5/8” Red Satin Ribbon, Hot Glue Gun and Gorilla Glue Hot Glue Sticks. These little wreaths would make great gifts as well or can be used around a candle for a festive centerpiece.

Supplies

I bought three mini wreaths from Target and hot glued red, green, and gold ornaments to it, scattering them around the wreath. The pale gold, glitter gold, and red and green glitter ornaments are ones I used from my stash.

I added a 5/8” Red Satin Ribbon to each wreath to hang them. That’s all! I told you it was super easy. You can add more items, like ribbon or candies, etc to your if you like.
