Short & Sweet Saturday - Hearts Come Home


Here's this week's Short & Sweet Saturday card. I know you're all starting to think about what Christmas cards you're going to make this year...easier the better. Well, this one could be a good one for you! This is the first card I've made with this stamp set, Hearts Come Home. I had so much fun making this one, and I didn't even use the WONDERFUL dies that coordinate with it! They'll be used on the next card I make with this set! I'm sure it'll be even more fun with the dies!

This is also one of the designs that will be made at my Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack this Thursday. You can see three other designs by CLICKING HERE. I'll be posting the last design on Monday.


Dimensions:
  • Cherry Cobbler:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base), 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" (scallop circle), & 4" x 3/4" (border)
  • Crumb Cake:  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer)
  • Very Vanilla:  2-3/4" x 2-3/4" (circle) & 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
  • Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4" x 2"
  • Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon:  6"
Instructions:
  1. Stamp the "Joy to the World" stamp from the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set across the top of the Crumb Cake piece using the Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin' Pad. Punch across the Cherry Cobbler border piece using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. Put SNAIL Adhesive along the back of the bottom edge of the DSP piece. Attach the punched border onto it. Attach the DSP/border piece across the bottom part of the Crumb Cake piece (see picture). Wrap the ribbon around the top of the DSP, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the Crumb Cake piece. Fold the Cherry Cobbler card base piece in half, and attach the Crumb Cake piece to it.
  2. Die-cut a circle out of the Very Vanilla circle piece using the second largest circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Stamp one of the house stamps onto the bottom, center of the circle using the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the largest pine tree stamp two times on the left side of the house without re-inking, using the Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad. Do the same with the other side of the house. Stamp the Santa/reindeer stamp across the top of the circle using the Cherry Cobbler ink pad. Die-cut a scallop circle out of the Cherry Cobbler scallop circle piece using the second largest scallop die in the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Attach the stamped circle to the center of the scallop circle, and then attach it all to the center of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  3. Inside of the card:  Stamp a house stamp onto the bottom, left corner of the Very Vanilla inside piece using the Crumb Cake ink pad. Stamp the largest pine tree stamp onto the right side of house two times without re-inking, using the Old Olive ink pad.
