Two “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” Cards with Holly Jolly Layers

One of the new Hostess sets in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue is Holly Jolly Layers, a perfect set to match up with the Layering Framelits sets and create some festive tags. Today I have used the “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” stamp as a focal point for my cards.

Both cards use the greeting as focal point and to make them stand out even more I used my Stampin’ Markers to highlight the word Merry on each card. Here is the Crumb Cake version on its own:

For these cards I used the 12 x 12 sheets to create cards which were 4″ by 6″ in size so I could fit six 1″ squares down the side. For this Kraft version I used scraps from the Candy Cane Lane DSP and some red metallic thread to embellish.

The Cherry Cobbler version uses the same idea but uses scraps from the Presents and Pinecones DSP and is embellished with the green metallic thread.

I love this simple design and think if you changed the sentiment it could work for any occasion   and with any of our dsp packs. Which is perfectas they are currently buy three packs get a fourth free, so just think how many versions of this design you could make, with one sheet of dsp producing 144 1″ squares!

Happy Crafting
