Today’s projects are a coordinating set, a Window Gatefold and a no measurement Gift bag. I used the beautiful, sparkling, stunning brightly gleaming Suite

The suite creates a wow with the simplest creations gorgeous designer series paper with foil accents beautiful color coordination. The Christmas gleaming bundle consists of Christmas gleaming Stamp set with beautiful baubles gorgeous Holly leaf image as well as some sentiment with a beautiful script font, the gleaming ornament punch pack makes it simple and quick to punch out the coordinating Bauble.

The card: The original design came from Jennifer Maguire

Two pieces of Very Vanilla card stock measuring 8″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4″ also at the 2″ mark on one side of the card base.  Will also need an additional scrap piece of Very Vanilla to create a Stitched oval for the center of the inside, 11″ x 3/4″  scored at 2″ 4 1/2″ from the 2″ mark to create the belly band. Two pieces of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/4″ x 1 7/8″.

Glue your two panels of designer series paper onto the 2-inch section the crate the front of the card then using the second smallest stitched oval from the Stitch Shape Dies center in the middle of your 2-inch score line run it through your big shot.

Now place your two bases together centering the side you’ve cut out with the other side to line up that way when you close your gatefold it will match up.

Are used easy release tape to secure then pull apart your bases and run the second card base through your big shot to create the front opening.

Now glue your two-card bases together. on the inside of the gate for Card, I closed the front of the card then lightly penciled the oval using that same oval die to cut out a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Now that you have a traced penciled oval in the center of your inside card stamp the Holly Leaf image using Momento ink colored it in using Stampin Blends markers. I now stamp the sentiment” Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly ” with Versamark ink on the Stitched Very Vanilla oval using Copper embossing powder then heat set with your heat tool. Now glue down your oval in the center covering your pencil mark.

Now create your belly band using the Very Vanilla cardstock piece measuring 11″ x 3/4″ on the center of this belly band I use the old Olive/pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon, on an additional piece of Very Vanilla card stock I stamped the sentiment” Merry Christmas” and Pretty Peacock ink then glued it down to the center of your belly band at here both ends of the belly band slide it over the front of your card. I added a few Holiday Rhinestones for a little bling!

The gift bag: 

There are no measurements to this gift bag you can make it any size. Simply fold down one end of your designer series paper approximately a 1/2″ high then adhered Tear and T1/2″aped to the side to glue together.

Then fold up the bottom portion approximately a 1/2″ to 1 inch, then angle and fold to the center your two sides then unfold.

Unfold open back up and fold in towards the center then use Tear and Tape and it here together.

Now fold in each side lengthwise approximately a 1/2, then you glue to the bottom then place your hand inside open it up, it will create a crease on each side and glue the bottom down. I then created handles using a hole punch, two holes on each side and using the lovely Old Olive/ Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon and the copper brads to adhere. I then used an element from the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements for a slight accent.

The projects are complete!
