The Season to Sparkle stamp set and Chandelier Thinlits dies both feature a traditional chandelier with a wide variety of sentiments and add-on options to “make it your own” and decorate for many different occasions. I decided to have some fun and create a swinging chandelier for the holidays. Why not, right? Time to celebrate!
Die cut the chandelier from a 4″ x 4″ panel of Shimmery White cardstock. Use Stampin’ Write markers to carefully color the candles with Real Red and the flames with Daffodil Delight. Use Garden Green ink to stamp six of the greenery swags on the second 4″ x 4″ panel of Shimmery White cardstock. Die cut the swags with the coordinating die and then stamp the berry clusters with Real Red ink. (It makes the berry placement easier to cut first and stamp second.) Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere four of the greenery swags to the chandelier, as shown. Tie a small bow with 1/8″ Real Red solid ribbon and adhere near the bottom of the chandelier with a Mini Glue Dot.
Use Real Red ink to stamp the “Merry & Bright” sentiment on a 1-1/2″ x 4″ panel of Shimmery White cardstock. Cut the sentiment out with the framed banner die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies. Use the same die to cut a framed banner from Real Red cardstock.
Adhere a panel of sparkle print Designer Series Paper from the Merry Little Christmas stack to a panel of Real Red cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped sentiment banner plus frame about 1/4″ up from the bottom edge, centered side to side on the completed panel. Adhere a greenery swag to each side of the banner with Liquid Glue. Thread a 4″ length of 1/8″ Real Red solid ribbon through the loop at the top of the completed chandelier. Determine the placement of the chandelier on the card front, centering it side to side, and secure both ends of the ribbon to the back of the DSP layered panel with tape. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the completed art piece to the card front.
Stamp three of the greenery swags directly on the Shimmery White panel card liner with Garden Green ink – one centered at the top of the panel and one in each corner at the bottom. Stamp the berry clusters on each swag with Real Red ink. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped piece to a panel of Real Red cardstock. Adhere the completed layer to the card interior with Liquid Glue, as well. Done!
