December 1, 2012

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  I hope the start of your weekend has been a great one!  Today marks the start of the December/January release week for WPlus9, and we have a lot of great things in store for you!  We have a new DT member (you will see her name on my link list below), and some fabulous new stamp sets & dies for you.  Here is a look at what we are sharing with you today!

XOXO Border Die

I didn't use the XOXO border today, but will before this week ends!!  I chose to use the Bitty Buddy Valentine's set with a few other WPlus9 previously released stamp sets to create this cute and fun Christmas card!  I thought that the striped frame was perfect in red, and it reminded me of peppermint stripes & mailing sweet Christmas packages!  Here is what I created!
1. Make A2 card from lake house cardstock.
2. Cut hexagon paper slightly smaller, wrap ribbon around the bottom and adhere.
3. Stamp the striped frame to white cardstock, then diecut.
4. Stamp the wish list image to the top of the frame.
5. Diecut the penguin & pocket from white cardstock, then stamp the corresponding images.
6. Add the sentiment & ornament to the pocket, then layer both front of the frame.
7. Accent with jewels, then adhere to the card front with foam adhesive.
8. Tie a bow from matching ribbon, stitch a button around it with twine & adhere to the left side to finish.
