Holly Jolly Christmas

Holly Jolly ChristmasThis is my second post today, a rare occurrence indeed!

If you have popped over from Stampin’ Pretty, welcome and thank you so much for visiting me today!

This card was inspired by a darling card made by Joanne James. When I saw the reindeer paperclips in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, I could not imagine how I would use them. Then I saw Joanne’s card and the light came on! I love, love, loved the Rudolph nose on the clip!! I had to sit down and make my own 🙂

Holly Jolly ChristmasThere are lots of layers on this one but the layers were made easy with rectangular stitched dies. I die cut the DSP layers and then added Mossy Meadow layers to the back of them. All but the top layer are adhered directly to each other, the top layer was lifted with Stampin’ Dimensionals to leave room for the reindeer clip.

I die cut “jolly” three times using Stampin’ Up!’s Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies and adhered them together to make the greeting pop. The rest of the greeting is from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler onto scrap pieces of white card stock, and then snipped out and layered onto Cherry Cobbler card stock. Easy peasy. If you like the look of the stamp set and the dies, you can purchase them in a bundle with a 15% discount!

And of course the Rudolph nose. That is the icing on the cake!! Thanks, Joanne, for your inspiration, and for choosing my card as A Cut Above with The Paper Players last week!

I don’t usually load my cards up this much so while I love it, one part of me is screaming “You forgot the kitchen sink!!” Is it all too much? I would love to hear what you think!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
