~Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″.
~Whisper White card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
~4 stars from 1 pattern of DSP (Red)
~4 stars from a different pattern of DSP (Green)
~4 stars from Gold Foil. Put a folded sheet of printer paper between the Foil side and your Big Shot Cutting Pad/Plate to keep it smooth and shiny. If you want a distressed look, don’t use the printer paper. 2. Card Front.
~Take your embossing folder and find the side where the embossing lines are raised up.
~Rub your Crumb Cake ink pad over that side until it is evenly covered with ink.
~Line up your Card Front on the uninked side. Close. Run through your Big Shot.
**Big Shot Sandwich for Dynamic Embossing Folders:
Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter REMOVED. (OR Multipurpose Platform with Tab 2 open)
Dynamic Embossing Folder with cardstock inside
Top Cutting Pad/Plate. (Yes, only use a Cutting pad on the top. Skip the bottom one as your Sandwich will be too thick to go through your Big Shot.
~Attach to Card Base with Tombow Glue 3. Sentiment ~Stamp your sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink on Whisper White cardstock
~Cut out with the label die with some room at the left for your Holly.
~Color your Holly Leaves with the Shaded Spruce Marker and your Holly Berries with your Real Red Marker. Stamp.
~Color around the edges of your Label with your Real Red Marker.
~Attach about 1/4″ from the bottom edge with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 4.Star Wreath
~Picture an analog clock face with the numbers 1-12 in a circle. You will be placing one of the 12 stars you cut out in the space of each number.
~Lay the Green Stars at 12, 3, 6, and 9.
~Lay the Red Stars at 1, 4, 7, and 10.
~Lay the Gold Stars at 2, 5, 8, and 11.
~I attached the 4 Green Stars first with two Glue Dots on the back. I only pressed down the right Glue Dot so I could overlap the stars.
~Then add two Glue Dots to one Star at a time and attach them so they slightly overlap the previous Star (And the Green Stars). Continue until all Stars are attached.
Your Card is finished.
1. Choose either Gold OR Silver OR Red as your color. The 2015 Holiday Catalog has Red Foil Paper so you can also choose Red if you want to. 2. Cutting the pieces ~Use the Largest Floral Frames Framelit to cut a Gold OR Silver Glimmer Paper Flower. ~Use the third Floral Frames Framelit to cut a Gold OR Silver Foil Paper Flower. NOTE: use this sandwich in your Big Shot: Magnetic Platform, cutting plate, Foil Paper with white side down/foil side up, Framelit with cutting edge down, card stock to cover entire piece of Foil Paper, top cutting plate. The Foil Paper will pick up any dents and cracks on your cutting pad. Putting a piece of card stock between the cutting pad and Foil Paper will prevent this. ~Punch a 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. ~Cut your Ribbon large enough to go on the inside of the box. The length I cut for the Shirt Boxes was about 22″. 3. The Tag ~Stamp your sentiment on regular Whisper White card stock. Punch out with the decorative label punch (or other punch or die cut).
~Cut your Tag Base at 2″ (slightly less than 2″) x 4-1/4″ (or however long you need it for your sentiment plus at least 2″ if you are using both the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and the Banner Triple Punch. If you are just going to round the bottom corners, then just adding 1″ or so should be good.) ~Now punch the ends of your Tag Base: Use the Scallop Tag Topper Punch on one end. Use either the Banner Triple Punch OR the Corner Rounder Punch on the other end. You can use White Bakers Twine to tie a Bow or use as fringe through the Tag hole. 4.Now to put everything together. Decide where you want the Ribbon, the Flower, and the Tag to go.
~Attach the Ribbon to the Box lid with some Tear & Tape Adhesive. I used about 4″ on each end so the ribbon would be secure on the side-both outside and inside the box. Try to get it straight or put it at an angle.
~Assemble your Flower: If desired your can put Demensionals on the back of each petal on the Floral Frames Flower layers. Put Tombow Glue on the back centers of each Flower piece so the pieces will stay attached. Glimmer Paper is very picky about which adhesives it will stick to. One of the ladies brought Zots Glue Dots and the pieces did not stay together. Stampin’ Up! Glue Dots don’t work well either. ~Attach your Flower to the Box with Tombow Glue at least in the center. You can use Dimensionals on the petal ends if you want some Dimension. ~Attach your Tag with either Glue Dots or Dimensionals. ~Embellish with Basic Rhinestones. 5. Fill with your Gift. We finished decorating 12 Boxes in less than an hour. Once the cutting is done and you have made one box, it goes pretty quickly.
