This or That? So Very Merry Cards

Friends, it's time for another This or That. Let's have some fun!

Both cards are made with the So Very Merry Stamp Set and use basic shapes. The only die cutting needed is for the circles.

To make the bell card, I started by using Stylish Shapes Dies to cut two nested circles, from Daffodil Delight and Basic White Cardstock.

I then used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the bells and sentiment from the So Very Merry Stamp Set onto the Basic White circle. I used Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Pecan Pie Stampin' Blends™ to colour the image. Then I adhered the circles together.

To assemble the rest of the card, I cut three strips of Traditions of St. Nick DSP: 

  • one strip 1 1/2" x 4 3/4"
  • two strips 1" x 3 1/4"

I cut chevron shapes in one end of each strip, then arranged all the elements on a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Mossy Meadow Cardstock card base. I used Stampin' Seal and Stampin' Dimensionals™ to attach all the pieces. Then I added a 3 3/4" x 5" Basic White panel to the card's interior as a writing surface.

My final step was embellishing with Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots. These dots are great to use on any project, year-round. In fact, I've just used up my pack, so I'll have to order more soon!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed these two cards.
