Elizabeth Craft Designs  (ECD) has been licensed to make dies of Suzanne Cannon's (Quietfire Design ) calligraphy. Today's card uses  the "Merry Christmas" die. (or available on Quietfire HERE)

The "Ornaments set 2" die set, is also by Elizabeth Craft Designs.

The rubber stamp quote, the LOVE letters and a bunch of pieces on the front are by Quietfire Design  

 ("Love is what's..."); ("Love Fill 'er Up"); (From & To "Christmas is the Day" 9pce set); (Me "Garden Bench Collection" 4 pce set); (You "Just for You" 4pce set)


I scored and folded my white cardstock to create the step card.

On the front, adhered a piece of cream toned cardstock to the lip. Adhered a piece of red Bazzill monochromatic cardstock. Adhered the black satin/gauze ribbon to cover the overlap on the lip, then adhered a piece of black picot edged lace.

Adhered the gold glitter dotted gauze ribbon to create a faux package... Adhered the bow using hot glue.

Stamped the words on white cardstock and die cut with Spellbinders "Fancy Tags" sponged with a dirty red sponge and adhered to card.

On the inside: Cut over lay pieces from off white Ruche cardstock slightly smaller than card size. Colored the edges of the card using a black sharpie marker, then adhered the overlays.

Stamped the letters for the word "LOVE" on white cardstock using Black Onyx and clear embossed. Cut down to size, colored the backgrounds with a red Prisma Premier marker. Used a Quickie glue pen on portions of the letter and sprinkled with Stickles dry glitter "Star Dust". On the balance of the spaces in each letter sprinkled with gold glitter. Adhered to the steps.

Stamped the quote using the black and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders "Labels 22" set, altering the size by re-aligning the die at the top and bottom and re-cutting. Inked the edge using the Prisma marker. Adhered to card.



Stamped the house/tree (Old Island Rubber stamps) using the black, clear embossed. Used an embossing pen to color the moon and snow on roof and embossed with white embossing powder.

Die cut the Xmas tree Marianne Designs "Crizzy", sponged "Forest Moss" through the die. Sponged various greens, dried and then touched here and there with the edge of a Versamrk pad, embossed with white embossing powder. Adhered to card.

Created an eCut file for the gifts (Flourishes "All Wrapped Up"), stamped with the black, clear embossed and colored with the Prisma markers.

Added a pink rhinestone star on top of the tree.

Die cut the "Merry Christmas" from white cardstock covered with a gold glitter paper (Recollections).

Die cut the filigree part of the ornament from white cardstock, inked with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut the solid layer from white cardstock with Sookwang tape. Adhered the two layers together, then carefully sprinkled glitter in green and red and a touch of gold. Adhered to card and added a black rhinestone flourish.
