12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS IN JULY (Day 7)

Heart's Delight Cards, Ornamental Envelopes, Envelopes Dies, 2020 Aug-Dec Mini, Stampin' Up!, 12 Days of Christmas in July

Whew, we are past the halfway point, peeps! I hope I don't run out of ideas. (Like THAT will ever happen, not when I have fourteen new stamp sets from the demonstrator preorder, and twelve of them are holiday themed!)

Today's card features the Ornamental Envelopes bundle, which is a 12 piece photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating (also 12 piece) Envelopes Dies. I used the large curved scallop on this card.

Traditional Christmas colors are the rule today. Originally I had thought to stamp the ornaments in red or green, but I didn't think they would show quite as well so... gold embossing to the rescue! Red, green, and gold are a lovely combination, too. Measurements and instructions are below.

Remember, buy any bundle in August from the 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog, which starts August 4th, and received a pre-cut, ready to stamp and assemble card kit (4 cards and envelopes) from me! The kit will include any dies cuts and embossed pieces, as well as embellishments needed to complete the cards. All you need is stamps, ink, and adhesives.

Measurements

  Card base: Whisper White 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored & folded at 4-1/4"
  DSP: Heartwarming Hugs (green check) 4" x 5-1/2", and (red stripe) 1-1/4" x 5-1/2"
  Ornaments: Whisper White 2-1/4" x 4-1/4"

Instructions
  1. Adhere green check DSP to card base placing top edge in alignment with fold. Place long curved scalloped die 3/4" from bottom edge of (OPENED!) card. Make sure both sides are even. It helps to use a couple sticky notes to hold the die in place. Run through die cut machine.
  2. Adhere red stripe DSP to inside of card at bottom edge. Heat emboss greeting in white on lower right. (Greeting is from Cherish the Season - use whatever fits.)
  3. Stamp ornaments using VersaMark ink and heat emboss in gold. Use the matching die to cut them out, reserving the three largest ornaments.
  4. Tie three teeeny, tiny bows with the red ribbon. *grin* 
  5. Arrange the ornaments as desired to see where to place the strips of ribbon. Adhere ribbons in place, then ornaments on top. Use glue dots to adhere bows.
  6. Add Wonderful Gems to complete the card.
