Happy Hour Christmas

Good morning everyone! And happy December! The last month of the year and only 24 more days till Christmas!! There is only two presents under our tree. Yikes! I had better get going if I plan to have something for everyone on my list - lol! Last night I worked on one of my gifts to some friends of ours. Not too much more and it will be done. I have four more in the works. And then there is all the shopping that must be done, too. Starts to add up and feel a little overwhelming. I need to remind myself to just enjoy each day as it comes. :)

Today's card was quickly made for posting purposes - lol! I had just gotten this stamp set, Happy Hour. It was on the Online Extravaganza that Stampin' Up! had last week. I had been wanting this set and thought it was a great time to get it at a discount! And it just came so I put this together using the card from page 178 of the catalog. I stamped the greeting from Happy Hour in black StazOn onto the printed paper from the Festival of Prints pack. And it is very hard to see, especially from the angle that the picture was taken. This is adhered to a card base of Very Vanilla. On top of this is a strip of Early Espresso that has the bottom flagged. Then I cut a piece of Very Vanilla using the Apothecary Accents framelits dies. I adhered a strip of champagne glimmer paper with both ends flagged to this and then popped up it up onto the card. I stamped the glass in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla and cut it out. I popped this up onto the tag. I stamped the inside of the glass in Cherry Cobbler and cut this out. This is adhered to the glass. Then I used the Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler markers to stamp the holly. I also cut this out and adhered it to the glass. Then I added a small rhinestone to the holly berry. Lots of cutting on this one but it did come together fairly quickly. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
