Hey everyone. I’m back with you today sharing another inspirational card and tutorial using products from Simon Says Stamp and Gina K. Designs. Working with stencils on your holiday cards is a quick and easy way to mass produce a ton. Adding extra sparkle with the Gina K. Designer glitz glitter gel just steps everything up 10 notches. 😉. Let’s get into the card.
For this beautiful, I stayed with my favorite color combination of teal and red. To not distract from this color combination, I pulled in some silver and vellum.
Let’s take a peek at the video to see how this beautiful card came together.
For my bonus card today, I kept it very clean and simple. I used the Simon Says Stamp Ornamental Wreath as my main focal point. I die cut it out of green card stock. Next I layered tiny red gems as my berries around the wreath. The background panel I used the We R’ Memory Keepers geometric embossing folder for a quilted look. I also ran a piece of red card stock through the embossing folder and placed it in the center of the wreath.
My wreath needed a bow so I die cut one out and stamped a sentiment onto a strip of white card stock. Now it was time to assemble the card. I layered a piece of red card stock on a white card base. Next I adhered the embossed background. I glued the red piece being the wreath and glowed the wreath down. Using the tips of my scissors I gently lifted some of the leaves on the wreath.
That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to swing back by tomorrow for more inspiration. Keep those commenting coming for your chance to win one of the amazing giveaways we have.

Beautiful card. Love how the SSS red ink coordinates with GKD glitter glitz & pops off the teal card stock. Your bonus card is beautiful as well.

Both cards are beautiful Dana, I especially like the joyful card. Sadly I don’t have any of the Glitz Glitter but surely I can figure out another way to replicate this. Awesome colour combo on that one. TFS!
