So Very Merry Bird Card

Friends, today I'm beginning a series featuring the beautiful So Very Merry Stamp Set. It's an Online Exclusive, not in any catalogue, and available just while supplies last.

The cards I'll be sharing come from my recent Stained Glass Effects Class. If you like what you see, why not register for an upcoming class?

Here's today's card:


To make this card, I started by using Stylish Shapes Dies to cut two matching circles, from Basic White Cardstock and Vellum Cardstock. 

I then used Jet Black Stāzon Ink to stamp the bird image and sentiment from the So Very Merry Stamp Set onto the Vellum circle. I went with Stāzon as it is specially formulated to work well on shiny and non-paper media. It also dries almost immediately, limiting the danger of smudging on Vellum.

Here's the So Very Merry Stamp Set:


I used Real Red, Old Olive, and Pecan Pie Stampin' Blends™ to colour the image. Then I embellished with 2022-2024 In Color™ Pearls. I added Mini Glue Dots™ on the back side of the Vellum, beneath the embellishments - so they would not show through the vellum - and adhered the circles together.

To assemble the rest of the card, I adhered a 3" x 4" panel of Traditions of St. Nick DSP to a 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" panel of Real Red Cardstock. I also attached a 2" x 3" scrap of the DSP to a 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock.

Traditions of St. Nick DSP has beautiful holiday patterns and may have been missed by some, perhaps due to its name. (Only one pattern actually features St. Nick.) It's also an Online Exclusive, so it's not in any catalogue. Here's a closer look at it:


To finish the card, I added the panels and circles to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Basic White Thick Cardstock card base, popping up some elements with Stampin' Dimensionals™.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed my project.
