Still looking at your holiday rub-ons and not sure where to start? Here's another fun example using rub-ons (see all my holiday samples here). I love the crisp texture (sentiments look divine) and how striking they appear on deeper colored card stock. My punches came out to play, too!
The large "santa" sentiment is from Old St. Nick Rub-Ons (Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog–email me your name and address if you would like a free copy). It's a quick and easy transfer on Riding Hood Red card stock. TIP: I use a bone folder to simplify the process. The red layer is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to Whisper White stock.
The horizontal panel below is a lovely swatch of Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Treasures Designer Series paper layered over Whisper White. The base edge of the white is jazzed with a Scallop Edge Punch. TIP: When using the Scallop Edge Punch, start with a larger piece of card stock than you need. Cut to size once you see where the scallops are . . . you can keep the scallops on each end more even that way.
The 4.25 x 5.5 card base of Riding Hood Red card stock is scored at the top. TIP: After you score, fold with the score ridge to the inside of the card and the indentation to the outside. I think it creates a more polished finish. Bordering Blue card stock took a texture-bound trip through my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.
I transfered three Old St. Nick Rub-On snowflakes to Riding Hood Red card stock and popped them out with a 1/2" Circle Punch. Each receives some bling courtesy of my Pretties Rhinestone Brads. I layered a Little Felt Flurries snowflake (they come in Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, 3 sizes, 69 pieces) on a 1 1/4" Square of Whisper White layered over a Scallop Square of Bordering Blue.
The final touches were a large Clear Rhinestone Brad (Stampin' Up! Pretties Kit) and a luscious strip of Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon.
My sketch inspiration is from this charming Mojo Monday Design.
