I started this card using my new 5000J- Christmas 1926 Digital Stamp Set.

I offer Copic® Colored Images as well as Black & White Images (for those who wish to color their own) in my Digi Sets. Size the holly image to 3-1/2"x3" and select a sentiment and place inside the holly. I elected to print both Black & White and Colored.

Printed on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.

Color as desired.

I chose to use COPIC® markers to color with.

A full color list is listed above.

Fussy Cut along the lines shown to enable Die cutting.

Slide 3" circle die under the cut flaps as shown. Run through the Big Shot®. Trim

each flap to look like a banner as shown.

Edge using Copic® W1.

Use the Gold Foil cardstock and a 4" Wyse® Scalloped Lacy Circle run through the Big Shot®.

Use the core'dinations® Holly Leaf and the 3-3/8" Tonic® Essentials Circle Layering Basics; run through the Big Shot®.

Trim the 5"x7" The Paper Studio® Christmas Plaid across the bottom.

Mark center, and up 1", draw line from corner to the center as shown.

Using a solid core Red and the 3-1/8"x5-1/2" WeR® Nesting Party Banners Die and run through the Big Shot®.

Using a distressed wood cardstock and the

2-5/8"x5" WeR® Nesting Party Banners Die and run through the Big Shot®. Edge the banner using VersaMagic® Jumbo Java.

Adhere the 5"x7" Christmas Plaid to the front panel of the 5"x7" Cardbase as shown.

Trim the cardbase to the shape of the Christmas Plaid Banner as shown.

Adhere the Red Solid Core Banner to the front panel about 1/2" from the top and the left (Fold).

Adhere the Distressed Wood Banner to the front panel aligning the peak with the peak of the cardbase.

Adhere the 4-1/2" Doily center of the card and at the top of the Red Banner.

Adhere the image center of the Holly Leaf green circle; then adhere center if the Gold Foil.

Center the Gold Medalion on the doily and adhere in place as shown.

I removed the button loop from the back of the button; using a Glue Dots® Adhesive dot and adhere the Gold & Black Button to the upper right corner.

OPTIONAL: Using some of the scrap strips , trim one end to make banners. Arrange and adhere to the backside of the cardbase with a name plaque as shown.

Doesn't this make a handsome Christmas card- perfect to cheer both family and friends alike. I hope this journey inspired you to make your own Christmas Banner Card creation fit to be put in someone's own Russell Stover treasure box.
