3rd Thursdays Blog Hop: 2019 Holiday Catalog

Welcome the 3rd Thursdays Blog Hop!  This is the 1st time I have participated in this Hop. I'm looking forward to being a part of this talented group. The theme for September is the Holiday Catalog Goodies. This catalog is so packed with goodies it was hard to choose just one. I finally narrowed it down to 3, based on the new punches. I love my punches. They help make crafting easy in my mind anyway.

I decided to go with the Wrapped in Plaid Suite. Don't you just love the Pine Tree Punch?  I new that I needed one more Gift Card Holder for my holiday gift giving this year so that was where I started.

The gift card holder base is Shaded Spruce Cardstock- 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 51/2" & 9". I embossed the front with the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder. I used the Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper for the Card Front-3" v 3 3/4", the Gift Card Flap- 1 1/2" x 3 3/4", and the Inside Layer Decorative Strip- 1 1/8" x 4". The Inside Layer is Whisper White- 4" x 5 1/4". I cut a Shaped Spruce Stitched Nested Label Mat- 2 7/8" x 5 1/4" for the Whisper White Stitched Nested Label- 2 3/4" x 4 7/8". The Pine Tree is stamped with the Plaid Tree stamp from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp set. I used the Pine Tree Punch to cut out the cute little tree- 2" x 2 3/8". I Stamped the Merry Christmas with
Cherry Cobbler Ink on the Stitched Label. I stamped the sentiment for the Gift Card Flap with Cherry Cobbler on a 1" x 3" Whisper White scrap, I cut this out with the larger Sentiment Frame from the Merry Christmas Dies. I adhered a 5 1/4" piece of ribbon to the SDSP Strip with Snail. Then I adhered the strip to the Inside Layer with Liquid Glue. I adhered the completed Inside Layer to the inside of the Gift Card Holder with Liquid Glue. Adhere the Wrapped In Plaid Credit Card Flap piece in place with Liquid Glue. Adhere the Credit Card Flap in place over a gift card with Tear & Tape. Adhere the Card Front SDSP to the Card Front with Liquid Glue. Adhere the Whisper White Stitched Nested Label to the Shaded Spruce Mat with Liquid Glue. Adhere the Pine Tree to the Stitched Nested Label wit Dimensionals. Adhere the Completed Label to the card Front with Liquid Glue. Adhere the Small Sentiment Label to the Credit Card Flap. For the final touch I added 3 Shaded Spruce Rhinestones under the Merry Christmas.

The Card has a 4 1/4" x 11" Cherry Cobbler Base, Scoed at 5 1/2". The Wrapped In Plaid Card Front is 3 3/4" x 5". I used the 2 largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut the Whisper White & Gold Foil Stitched Labels. I stamped the Tree with Shaded Spruce and punched it and the Gold Foil Tree with the Pine Tree Punch. I cut the Gold Foil Tree in half and glued it behind the stamped tree so that the Foil peeked out from behind. I tied a bow and adhered it around the Whisper White Stitched Label. I Glued the Whisper White Label to the Gold Foil Label. I adhered the Labels to the Card Front with
Dimensionals. I adhered the Tree to the Labels with Dimensionals. I stamped the Sentiment on a 1" x 3" Whisper White scrap with Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut this out with the larger Sentiment Die in the Merry Christmas Dies. I cut a Gold Foil label with the same die too. Cut the Foil Label in half lengthwise and Glue them to the back of the Sentiment Label so the the foil b peeks out from behind. Adhere the Sentiment Labels to the Card Front with Dimensionals.. Add a few Red Rhinestones to the Tree.

The Cookie Box holds a Little Debbie Nutty Buddy Cookie Bar. The Box Base is Cherry Cobbler and strips of Wrapped In Plaid SDSP was used to decorate it. I added a 1" x 3 1/2" Fish Tailed banner that was embossed with the Winter Knit 3D Embossing folder. I used the Stitched nested Labels to cut a Gold Foil Label.

I adhered that to the Fish Tailed Banner with Dimensionals. On top of that I put a Shaded Spruce Stitched Shapes 1 7/8" Circle that was glued in place. Then I adhered the Pine Tree to the  Circle with Dimensionals.
