Sunny Studio Stamps | Brilliant Banner + Holiday Hugs Christmas Card

September 10, 2023

Hello crafty friends! I have a Christmas-themed card to share with you today featuring some of the newly released products from the Sunny Studio Stamps amazing new Fall and Holiday Release.

** Affiliated links used where applicable at no extra cost to you. **

My card showcases the adorable bear from the Holiday Hugs Stamp Set as well as the beautiful Brilliant Banner 1 Die. To start my card, I first stamped my images (my bear and his gift) onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then colored them with Copic Markers and used the coordinating Holiday Hugs Die Set to cut them out. Next, I trimmed a piece of white card stock to 4″ x 5.25″ and die cut an oval from the center of it using the Stitched Oval 2 Dies. I then layered this piece onto a 4″x 5.25″ sheet of blue patterned paper from the Joyful Holiday Paper Pad with some 3D foam adhesive. I then layered these pieces onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ red-striped piece of patterned paper (using regular double-sided tape) from the same patterned paper pad as the blue patterned piece.

Next, I added my bear and his gift to my card base with some 3D foam adhesive to give them some added dimension. I then die cut a scalloped oval from white card stock 2x’s using the Fancy Frame Oval Dies and adhered them around the oval that I had previously die cut from my card base. In order to give some more interest to my background, I also cut a few white snowflakes using the small snowflake from the Basic Mini Shape Dies 2 Set as well as the snowflake that is currently the FREE mini die with every order while supplies last and glued them to my blue background.

Lastly, I die cut my wavy banner using the Brilliant Banner 1 Die from red card stock and heat embossed my sentiment from the Feeling Frosty Stamp Set with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

    This guy is adorable. I love your coloring! He’s bright and vibrant and looks fantastic. Your card design is wonderful, too. Rachel, your cards always have a distinctive style that makes me think Rachel made that before I even check who created it. Thank you for sharing and delighting!

    Loving that Holiday Hugs set. He is one handsome bear!!! Lovely job and I guess it’s never too early to get started on holiday cards. They sure come quicker every year.
