Merry Christmas With Emerald Creek - Guest Designer

 I am so excited to be a Guest Designer this month for Emerald Creek!!!
Emerald Creek is a lovely Canadian Company that makes and sells stamps and some of the most amazing charms and embellishments I have seen!!!
 Make sure to check out Emerald Creek Store HERE!!!!
 I created a Merry Christmas Card using the Wreath 2 Stamp 
along with Tim Holtz Yuletide Collection. 
 I began by inking a prepackaged doily with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
 Ink the edges of the Yuletide pattern paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 
Layer Yuletide pattern papers to card base. 
Add prepared doily to top of card base.
 Die cut Yuletide pattern paper and red card stock with Sizzix Framelits Die.
Stamp Emerald Creek Wreath 2 on pattern paper using black ink twice. 
Place on colored image on mat and place on card front with pop dots. 
Fussy cut bow from second colored image and add to top with pop dots. 
 Add border, brad and epherema pieces to bottom of card front. 
Tie red twine to Emerald Creek Candy Cane Charm and add to front of card.
 Don't forget to decorate the inside of your card.
Add a Yuletide pattern paper border and half of an inked prepared doily. 
Stamp Emerald Creek Merry Christmas Stamp to inside of card with black ink.
 Don't you just love all the dimension the stamps and layers give to my card. 
I do....
I had to make a matching TAG!!!!
 To begin by die cutting 3 tags using Sizzix Tag in Kraft, one in Yuletide pattern paper and one in red card stock. (this if for the back of the tag)
Ink the Kraft card stock with the Vintage Photo and Fired Brick Red Distress Ink.
 Stamp "Merry Christmas" to top of prepared tag with Emerald Creek Merry Christmas Stamp and black ink.
 Ink edges of prepackaged doily using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 
Adhere smaller doily to front and doily halves to the back of tag. 
Ink edges of pattern tag that has been torn using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Adhere to front of tag. 
Ink edges of ephemera and adhere to top of tag.
 Stamp Wreath 2 image to Yuletide pattern paper like you did for the card. 
Fussy cut the wreath. 
Place on tag with pop dots.
 Tie red twine bow to Emerald Creek Candy Cane Charm. Add to top of tag. 
 Make another red twine bow using red twine and Emerald Creek Candy Cane Charm to the top along with Tim Holtz Pine Twine to form holder on your tag.
I hope you have enjoyed my Merry Christmas Card and Tag and hope you try making some for this Christmas season. Make sure to check out Emerald Creek Store...I am so excited to see so many unique and beautiful charms along with special embossing powders. If you love Tim Holtz and Ranger Products well there is a large array of all of these that are available.
