Enjoy the Season Card

I love Christmas! I love the colors of Christmas! And although these aren't the traditional colors of Christmas, I am just as delighted with these colors!! They are spirited and fun! And I can't wait to create with them! Embrace the in the paper crafting world, it is almost upon us!

Supplies used: From the Creative Basic Collection--the Jingle Paper & Juniper ribbon (only available while supplies last--and last season the Creative basics collection ran out well before the season did!!), Juniper Exclusive Ink, Tulip Brads, Snowflake Dimensional Elements, Clear Embossing Powder, Ms. Holiday Cheer Stamp Set, VersaMark Ink, Heat Gun, and Cardstock: Juniper, White Daisy & Hollyhock. Card design is from the Wishes Book.

1. Begin by cutting a Juniper card base to 5 1/2" by 4 1/4".
2. Next cut the Jingle B&T paper to 5 1/4" x 4". Center and adhere to the Juniper base.
3. Next cut a 3" x 4" Hollyhock rectangle.
4. Next, cut a 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" square from the White Daisy cardstock.
5. Stamp the "Enjoy the Season" sentiment in Juniper Exclusive ink to the bottom edge of the square.
6. Adhere the White Daisy square about 1/4" from the bottom and left edges of the Hollyhock rectangle.
7. Align & adhere the Juniper ribbon approx. 1/4" to the right of the White Daisy square.
8. Position, and secure, 2 brads to the bottom of the Juniper ribbon.
9. Next, center and adhere the Hollyhock piece to the center of the B&T Jingle paper.
10. Create the snowflake: Using a sponge dauber, ink the snowflake with Juniper ink. Apply softer ink to the center of the snowflake, and darker ink to the edges. Impress the snowflake (inked side down) into the VersaMark pad. Cover the wet side of the snowflake in Clear Embossing Powder. Flip over to remove excess powder. Use the Heat Gun to melt the embossing powders. Let dry. Attach to the center of the White Daisy square using Mini Glue Dots.
