Don't Stop Believin'

Today's card features the Don't Stop Believin' Stampset from the August to December Mini Catalogue.  It is so cute!  For my card, I couldn't resist the elf all tangled up in the Christmas lights.  I know I can relate to this - I've moved to a Christmas tree that has the lights already on it so I don't have to end up like this!  Isn't he cute!

Check out my video on how to create coloured mesh ribbon and a coloured star ornament


  1. Cut Real Red cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut out tag from Real Red cardstock
  4. Cut out tag from Whisper White cardstock.
  5. Stamp image using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  6. Colour with Stampin' Blends - Real Red, Old Olive, Mango Melody, Crumb Cake and Petal Pink.  I've got some tips and tricks in my YouTube Video Tutorial on how to colour
  7. Colour the lights with Wink of Stella
  8. Attach the two tags together using Red Braided Linen Thread and tie a bow.
  9. Adhere the 2 tags together slightly off set to one another using a Glue Dot.

  11. Adhere to tag using a Glue Dot.
  12. Cut 4 1/4" piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon and colour using the Real Red Dark Stampin' Blend.  Use the brush end and colour with the tip almost horizontal to the ribbon
  13. Adhere to card base using some Stampin' Seal in the middle - you don't have to use a lot to hold in place.
  14. Adhere the tags over ribbon using Dimensionals.
