Stampin’ Up! colors Mint Macaron and Real Red create a lovely gift card holder with just a touch of Delightful Dijon thrown in to give it a little interest. Yes, I know, the holly on the paper is actually in Cherry Cobbler, but when I tried the real red ribbon against it -Whallah! nice together. So I just carried out the Real Red through out this project.
The belly band is Real Red 3/4″ stitched ribbon wrapped around and ends fast fused together. The medallion is die cut from Real Red Card Stock using the medium Lot’s of Labels Framelits set. Next I stamped the pretty Christmas Bulbs from the Jar of Cheer Stamp Set on Whisper White Card Stock in Jet Black Stazon Ink. I colored in the bulbs using Real Red, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, and Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Markers. Next I die cut the bulbs using a plain oval die from the Layering Ovals Framelits. The frame is a the next size up scalloped Oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits die cut in Delightful Dijon. The medallion was adhered to the ribbon band with fast fuse. Two Gold dots were added to the ends from the Metallic Enamel Shapes Set.
The card holder itself is made of Mint Macaron Card Stock the corners rounded using the Project Life corner rounder punch. The patterned paper is from the Presents and Pinecone DSP.
Before adhereing the lining to the card holder I Stamped the greetings and decorative border from the Father Christmas Stamp Set in Emerald Envy Ink. The sentiment is also stamped in Emerald Envy and is a stamp from the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set. All were adhered using SNAIL Adhesive.
