3D Christmas Star Card

I visited my son and his family in July and got the idea for this Christmas Star card.  My daughter-in-law had a 3D four-point Star for us to make.  She also wanted a Five-Point Star and made a pentagon shape to make the star.  This is SO much easier!  No math or complicated figuring things out.  Just stamp, cut, and assemble with Glue Dots.

Modern Label Punch #119849
1-1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch #127811
Large Oval Punch #119855
Retired Small Oval Punch (sorry)
Other:  Googlie eyes from your craft store or use the pieces from your Owl Punch Adhesive of your choice.  I used Glue Dots for most of the Turkey
Dimensionals
SNAIL Adhesive

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Crushed Curry card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score & fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Cajun Craze at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Emboss with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder and your Big Shot.  Adhere to card base.
Make your Turkey.
3.
 Punch 5 Large Ovals from Soft Suede AND Witches Brew Designer Series Paper.  Punch 3 smaller Ovals from Soft Suede AND Witches Brew DSP.  Cut the Soft Suede Ovals up the center until about 1/4″ leaving that part attached as shown in photo.  Adhere each Soft Suede Oval to the DSP Oval by placing a Glue Dot or SNAIL on each side of the Soft Suede Oval and spreading it apart to make a mat around the DSP Oval.  Repeat with all the Ovals.
4.  Adhere your larger Ovals together in the desired pattern.  I used Glue Dots.  Now adhere the 3 smaller Ovals together in the desired positions.  Adhere the two layers together.
5.  Punch an Owl from from Soft Suede AND Tangerine Tango card stock.  Trim the ears and feet from the Soft Suede Owl.  Cut the Tangerine Tango Owl so you have just the lower body and feet.  Glue them together with the Soft Suede Owl on top.
6.  Punch a 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle from Soft Suede and use some scissors to cut a rounded indent for the Turkey body.  Make sure there is enough room for the eyes and beak.  Draw scallops with your Early Espresso Marker to resemble the feather pattern on a Turkey breast.  Adhere to Turkey body.  Cut a small beak from a scrap of Tangerine Tango and adhere in desired position.  Adhere Deco Label to card front with Dimensionals.
7.  Stamp ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ in Early Espresso ink on Crushed Curry card stock.  Punch out with the Modern Label Punch.  Adhere with Dimensionals to card front.
8.  Admire your cute Thanksgiving Turkey card and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Snow Banner in Bermuda Bay

You can make this Snow Banner with the Build A Banner Refill Kit and the Christmas Accessory Kit.  It goes together really quickly since most pieces are cut and ready to go.  It should take you about an hour (or less) to make from start to finish. Snow Banner SUPPLIES:
Kits:  Build a Banner Refill Kit #132699  OR Build a Banner Simply Created Kit #133507 Christmas Accessory Kit #132697
Card Stock:  Bermuda Bay Silver Glimmer Paper
Marker:  Bermuda Bay Marker
Big Shot:  Circles Collection Framelits  #130911 Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies  #127553 OR get the Full Build a Banner Kit and use the Alphabet Stencils, Sponge Daubers, and either Silver Ink or Bermuda Bay ink
Punch:  3/4″ Circle Punch #119873  (Optional-if you want to add color to your clear buttons.)
Other:  Jumbo Sticky Rounds #127852 OR Glue Gun
Sticky Strip
Tombow Glue
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Choose 6 of the Banners in the Kit and choose the order you want them in.
2.  Cut 2 Bermuda Bay Scallop Circles using the largest (and only) Scallop Circle Framelit.  Add  the desired Snowflake from your Christmas Accessory Kit.  I punched a 3/4″ Bermuda Bay Circle to put under the clear buttons.  You can attach the card stock circle with either Glue Dots or Tombow Glue.  Attach to Button to the center of your Snowflake the same way.  Add a Large Rhinestone from your Kit to the center of your Button.  Glue to the desired Banner.  Adhere decorated Scallop Circle to your first Banner with Tombow Glue.
3.  Cut out your SNOW letters with your Big Shot and the Typeset Alphabet Dies and adhere them to the 2″ Circles that come in your Christmas Accessory Kit.  Go around the outside edges with your Bermuda Bay Marker so the letters will show up better.  OR stencil or write them onto the 2″ Circles that come in your Christmas Accessory Kit.  If you use the Silver ink go around the outside of the Stencil letters with your Bermuda Bay Marker so you can see the letters better.
4.  Assemble your Rosettes.  Fold on the Score Lines.  Attach Sticky Strip to one of the ends.  I usually put it underneath one end so the edge of the Rosette strip is against a fold line.  Flatten your Rosette with the back side up and pinch the center together.  Cover with a Jumbo Sticky Round.  Choose a 2″ Circle from your Christmas Accessory Kit to go on top of your Rosette.  Put 1/4 of a Sticky Round on the back of it and put in on the center front of your Rosette.  Repeat with the other three Rosettes.
5.  Add your Rosettes to the desired Banner by peeling the backing off the Jumbo Sticky Round OR use your Glue Gun.  (Glue guns don’t play nicely with me.  I almost always get burned badly so I now use Jumbo Sticky Rounds.  They work well  at holding the Rosette together AND holding it to the surface you want.)  Your Banner pieces are complete.
6.  String your Jute Twine from your Kit through the grommet holes.  I didn’t have enough Jute Twine left so I used some retired 3/8″ White Ribbon instead.  Tie loops at the ends so it hangs nicely from your nails in your wall or under your Fireplace Mantle.  Cut off the excess.
7.  Cut the 1″ wide Coastal Cabana Ribbon that comes in your Accessory Kit into five 6″ pieces.  Tie them in a knot between each of the Banners.  The Ribbon Knot helps keep the Banners from squishing together.  You can add some of the other Ribbons if desired. 8.  Hang your Snow Banner and enjoy the festive look it brings to your home!

Happy Winter Decorating! Nendy Kerr

3.  Cut two pieces of 5-3/4″ Burlap Ribbon.  Cut down one edge to remove the stitching.  Peel off the long fibers 1 or two at a time until you have just under 1/2″ of the “Ribbon” left on the one edge.  Repeat with the other piece of Burlap Ribbon.  Adhere to the card front using Sticky Strip.  Trim off the parts that hang over the edges.
4.  Color your Turkey Stamp.  Use your Chocolate Chip Marker for the Turkey, Early Espresso for the circle around the Turkey, and Pumpkin Pie for the outer stripes.  Remoisten with your breath several times and stamp on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the coordinating Deco Label Framelit.  Cut the next larger Framelit from Early Espresso card stock.  Layer with Dimensionals.  Attach to your card front using Dimensionals.
