Making Christmas Merry & Bright Class Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!

There are just 4 days left to register for the Making Christmas Bright Class-To-Go Kit, the first of four classes from my Countdown To Christmas Series!  Sign up by September 18 to participate! 

Today, I'm sharing the last of the 3 card styles that will be included in this class! We'll be making a total of 12 cards: 4 each of 3 designs.  If you missed the first two card designs, you can find them here: card #1, card #2.

Local Making Christmas Bright Class Update: I did not offer a local class option this year because of low participation last year.  However, I have had a few requests to have a local class for the Making Christmas Bright class kit.  If you're from the Fort Wayne, IN, area and would like to participate in a local class kit assembly time, let me know.  If I get enough interest, I will schedule one.

Making Christmas Merry & Bright Cards

For the final set of cards in my Making Christmas Bright class-to-go kit, I wanted to give the stamper an opportunity to play with different color light bulbs.  I designed the card base to be a little more neutral, so you could easily mix & match the colors of the lights in your favorite holiday shades!

Background Basics—I began with a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Subtle Texture Impressions Folder, then matted onto a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock.

I adhered a 1" x 5" strip of Shaded Spruce Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper for some sparkle.  It's all mounted onto a Gray Granite card base.

Bright Bulbs—I wanted to have at least one of my light bulbs in the coordinating background shade, then I selected two more colors that I thought looked nice together.  I ended up stamping these bulbs in Real Red, Call Me Clover and Balmy Blue onto Whisper White scrap.  They are punched with the matching Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.  I stamped all of the light sockets on another Whisper White scrap, then punched all of them out and adhered them to the top of the bulb with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Bundle It & SAVE—Purchase the Making Christmas Bright stamp set and the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch together in a bundle to save 10%.

Sentiment Layer—I stamped the first part of the Making Christmas Bright greeting in Gray Granite ink on the top of a 2-1/2" x 2-1/4" piece of Whisper White.  It's layered onto a 2-5/8" x 2-3/8" piece of Shaded Spruce, then popped up onto the card front with Dimensionals.  I popped the stamped & punched bulbs up with Dimensionals, too.  I finished by adding some Red Rhinestone Jewels.  I love this quick & clean design!
