 For my card, I started by cutting the Layer Striped panels and creating a frame with the Square Stitched dies.

Next, I used the Merry Christmas stamp and die set. I cut the the background and then stamped "Merry Christmas" with Wow! embossing ink. I then sprinkled a generous amount of Metalline Violet embossing powder.

Next I stamped and die cut a couple of snowflakes using the Snow Flurries stamp set and Pink & Main's Night Sky Surface Ink.

I used scraps of paper from Frosty 6" x 6" paper pad to create a the card base. Here is the completed card:

Christmas Foiled Banner #RineaInspires

Thanksgiving is officially over, it's all about Christmas, cue the jingle bells.

Today I am sharing a festive Christmas banner using Rinea's foiled paper and 3D Rolled Stars.This is the first time creating the 3D Rolled Star Die Set. Assembling the Stars was easier than I thought. The die set comes with 3 different die sizes. I cut 1 of the large and 2 each of the smaller ones. The easy to follow instructions are including in the package.

Following the package instructions, I rolled each piece and adhered using my Glue Pen.

I assembled my banner using the doilies and the pattern paper and then added the 3D Rolled Stars.

I added a the Starstruck Foiled paper to each banner, just enough to give it a layered look.
I tied green tulle between each panel and it was complete.

Th 3D Rolled Stars be assembled in so many variations. Create ornaments, bows, embellishments etc. I simply love how they look on my banner and I hope you do too.

Thank you for visiting and happy crafting.

Thanksgiving Place Cards #RineaFoiledPaper

Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to start planning our tablescapes. Today, I show you how I used Rinea's Autumn Foiled Paper Variety and Ghost Ink, to create personalized Thanksgiving place cards. Supplies needed are listed at the bottom of this post.

Using a manual die cutting machine, I cut all the elements to create the box card. I stamped, and heat embossed the floral bouquets and colored them.

Next, to create the extra layer on the box card flaps, I die cut only the flaps and trimmed off the excess. I adhered the brown card stock to the back side of the flaps. It just gives it a little extra.

I used the Starstruck Marigold Orange to cut the side panels of the card box. I then cut the top decorative pieces on Glossy Mocha Brown/Gold and embossed them with a pumpkin embossing folder.

Next, I stamped several leaves with the Ghost Ink and die cut them. I also used the Alpha Stamp set to create the names, sorry for the missed photo.

I adhered all the elements to the card box inserts and tied the rope twine to the front of the card box. I also added a pumpkin for a little extra.

Here's a close up of one of the place cards I will include on my Thanksgiving tablescape.

I hope you enjoyed today's project idea. Thank you for visiting and happy crafting.
