Flowers For Every Season Christmas Card

Today I’m showcasing my first Christmas card of the season using one of my favorite Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog, Flowers For Every Season.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Gleaming and Flowers For Every Season Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I really like this color combination of Just Jade, Poppy Parade, and Flirty Flamingo. What do you think, Christmas colors or not?

There’s a couple of sneak peeks on my card today. The sentiment is from a returning favorite from last year’s Holiday Catalog, Christmas Gleaming. It was definitely one of my favorite stamps and I’m so glad it’s back! It will be available (starting Aug. 4th) along with the coordinating Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.

I love ribbon and add it to most projects. The ribbon on my card is from All The Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack and is gold-trimmed for some added sparkle.

I love coordinating envelopes with my cards! I got this envelope idea from my super creative and talented friend, Rosanne Mulhern (heartfeltstamping.com). She decorated her envelope like this using coordinating DSP strips and I couldn’t wait to try it! This seemed like the perfect card to mirror the layers on my envelope.

Here’s what I used on today’s card:

Stamp Sets: Gleaming Christmas  Papers: Flowers For Every Season DSP, Brights 6 x 6 DSP, Thick Whisper White, Just Jade Whisper White  Inks: Poppy Parade  Accessories:  Tailored Tag Punch, Layering Circles Dies, 1/8″Poppy Parade Gold Trimmed Ribbon, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals

More Yankee Candle Box Ideas, FREE Shipping, and Year-End Closeouts!

Last week I shared 3 holiday gift box ideas using 12 x 12 DSP to hold a Yankee votive candle (or other gift/treat). Today I have some alternative ideas. The first uses cardstock to make the box. (*The directions are the same as the previous ones made with DSP. Click HERE for measurements, etc.)

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Yankee candle box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can add layers to the cardstock panels using any DSP.  The DSP panels measure 1 7/8 x 1 7/8. It’s a great alternative with the  6 x 6 DSP packs or when using patterned paper that is directional (like Toil Tidings shown below).

Stampin' Up! Toile Tidings Yankee Candle gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can close the box with clips, mini clothespins, mini library clips, ribbon, etc. Use what you have!

The Stampin’ Up! Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are the perfect size to hold a Yankee votive candle as well.  You can create a holder for the candle using DSP to coordinate to put inside the box.  Then dress it up with some coordinating ribbon for a pretty presentation.

Stampin Up! Clear Treat Box Yankee candle gift idea with Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I like that you can see the candle in this version.  It’s great for craft shows or when you want the person to be able to choose their favorite scent or color. To make the holder, cut a piece of DSP that measures 3 x 3. Score on all 4 sides at 1/2″.  Use the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch to center and punch a circle from the middle. Slide the punch all the way up and make sure it is centered on either side, then punch.

Then cut the corner tabs and use a mini glue dot on each tab to secure the holder.

Insert in the acetate box, put the candle in the holder, and wrap with ribbon. *Optional: Cut a 2 x 4 square from the same DSP, fold in half, and slide it in the box behind the candle holder. It makes it easy to distinguish the front from the back. It also allows you to add a stamped sentiment on the back of the box.

These are so quick & easy to make! They would be great table favors if you are hosting a dinner party. If you are traveling over the holidays pack a few for the housekeeper, etc. I love to leave little gifts for my cleaning ladies and always bring a little something when I go for a pedicure, haircut, massage, etc. I had fun using different stamps, punches, and ribbons to embellish. Here’s some of the other ones I made.
