The warm fruity smell of spices and icing sugar as it cools means that Christmas is in the air.
These dimensional cards are made from a Queen & Co. Holiday Jar kit which include the patterned paper, sentiment stamps, dies, foam jar shakers and pre-cut acetate. Colored cardstock scraps and heavy white cardstock card bases and envelopes were the only things besides red ink, glue, baker’s twine and tiny candy canes that were not in the kit.
The tiny tag says “Mrs. Claus’ Gingerbread Bakery, Cookie, Pies, Figgy Pudding” and is one of the tag stamps in the set. both the outside sentiment “Sweet Christmas Wishes and the inside sentiment of “Have yourself A merry little Christmas” are also included in the kit.
For the jar lids I used Hunkydory mirri card from the oxidized metals collection. The jar handle is cut from shiny black cardstock and the white stitched jar frame white linen textured cardstock both from a DCWV “The Spooky Time Cardstock Matstack.”
The envelope flaps are stamped with the same Stampin’ Up Real Red ink as the cards and the sentiment “Thinking of you at Christmas” sets the tone for the card.
I also made one other design from this kit using a fir tree theme complete with a pine scent air freshener tucked inside the card.
PLEASE NOTE: Queen & Co. makes these kits in small batches and when they sell out they may not bring the items back. I usually purchase a kit and several of the refill foam sets when a new kit comes out.
