Welcome friends! Today is the release of the latest set of new products from Simon Says Stamp, called the Holly Jolly release. I am sharing a few products from the release that will hopefully make you jolly during this upcoming holly season! These products are available now to purchase at the Simon Says Stamp store! I’m using the following products:
I’m also using these snowflake dies from previous releases:
Joy Slimline Card
My first card measures 3-1/2″ wide X 8-1/2″ tall. I stamped and embossed in white, the Outline Merry Christmas background on aqua blue cardstock.
Because the stamp design is 6″ square, I have solid blue on the ends of this 8-1/2″ panel. I used various paper punches to create the random hole design at the top and bottom. I added the blue card front panel to a slimline card base made out of 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock, allowing the white to show through these circular cutouts.
I heat embossed the design in white on lime green and fuchsia cardstock, too. I cut strips and added them to the top half. I die cut the JOY script out of solid fuchsia and the shadow layer from white cardstock and black 3MM craft foam and layered them all together. I adhered the layers using HBS Precision Glue. This glue works great on these surfaces. I added white faux stitching on the letters to enhance the cuteness using a Uni-bell Signo White Gel Pen.
I added the white snowflakes and JOY to the front of the card. To finish off this card, I added some iridescent white sequins for a little sparkle. They mimic the circular cutouts at the top and bottom, too.
Peek Through Window Card
For my second card, I used the Christmas Sweater Acetate Sheets, allowing the Outline Merry Christmas Background Stamp to show through to the front, through the acetate border window. I added strips of cardstock on the front panel as well as the JOY script die.
This time I added a blue Marie Snowflake die snowflake to the design. I added a few sequins for some sparkle to the front as well.
Here’s a quick look at the inside of this card. I added some black stitching to the top and bottom to make the design look more finished in the inside. Since this card measures 5″ wide X 7″ tall card, the outline stamp does not cover the complete area on the inside.
