12 Days of Christmas in July Day 9

Happy Friday!! Wahoo...the long weekend is here! Before I get to today's project, just a little PSA:
Time is running out to earn your Bonus Days Coupons! Place your order before midnight on Sunday to earn coupons to spend in August. Don't miss out! on to some stamping. Today's project is one I designed as one of the Make-n-takes for my last team meeting...

I love the way this double-pleated drapery fold showcases the beauty of the This Christmas Specialty DSP. The lighter weight of the paper makes doing all of those folds a breeze. I layered the folded DSP on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock which I embossed using the Holly TIEF. I added some 5/8" Gold Satin ribbon and adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler card stock base.

The sentiment, from the new Peace This Christmas stamp set, is heat embossed in gold and die-cut using the Layering Ovals framelits. I layered that on a scalloped oval cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock and then adhered it to a gold metallic doily before adhering it to the card.

On the inside I added a Very Vanilla panel on which I stamped the sentiment, from the Peace this Christmas set, in Cherry Cobbler ink and some pine branches in Garden Green.

Despite all the scoring and folding, this is a reallly quick and easy card to make. So much so that I made 30 of them for a swap I recently participated in!

Have a fabulous weekend!
