The card I have to show you today is a very Bright and Loud Christmas card.  I believe it is a Smile card as well.  A bit of a different look for a Christmas card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Jingle Jingle Jingle, Celebrate Everything, Polished Pink, Jackie Beers

 

Colors

As is my norm, all of the colors came from the DSP.  There are more subdued colors in this paper, or more “normal” colors.  But I wanted the bright and happy ones.  This paper is from the Celebrate Everything Host Rewards Designer Series Paper.  It is an amazing pack of papers with quite a lot of paper in the pack.  This one is a favorite with the bright colors.

I knew immediately I wanted to use the Polished Pink  as a main color on this card.  And it would have paired with any of the other colors.  But the Pacific Point kept calling to me.  The layers and the stamping are in those two colors.  Of course by adding Santa’s Hat it required an additional color.  The little hat is done in Poppy Parade, which is also in the DSP piece.

Stamps

All of the stamps you see are in this extremely fun stamp set named Jingle, Jingle, Jingle!  There are other large stamps of Jingle and Joy.  They all are like this one and have the outline stamp and then the filler stamp.  Since the stamp set is photopolymer it was very easy to line the two up properly.  Additionally there are other small stamps that add to the different words like the Santa Hat does, plus additional wording that works with the main word.  There are not matching dies to this stamp set.  But all of the little additional stamps, like the hat, are really easy to fussy cut.

Finishing

To complete the card was one of the more difficult steps of this one.  And that was where to place the Believe layers.  I wanted to show as much of the pretty DSP as possible, but also a place to hang Santa’s hat.  This finally came together, after much moving around, at the bottom right.   The Believe layer is raised using Stampin’ Dimensionals as well as is the hat.

The final touches were to add some Wink of Stella to the White parts of the hat for some shine.  And to give a touch of bling.  It was debated on adding bling to a couple of the ornaments.  But I contained myself and only added the one Pastel Pearl next to the complementing sentiment.  I have to say that this is a quick card once you decide on the components.  And would be great for multiples using the Stamparatus.  And, it is on the Last Chance Product List.
