Christmas Card Club 1: Joyful Mosaic

Below is the fourth of five cards we made last weekend at my Christmas Card Club Session 1 (you can check out my Event Calendar for details on upcoming sessions).

I love the coordinating stamp and punch bundles, which you can probably tell, because this card features yet another one! You can get 15% OFF when you order the Mosaic Madness stamp set and the Mosaic Punch together in the Mosaic Madness Bundle (choose either wood-mount stamp set + punch, or clear-mount stamp set + punch). This card design was inspired by one I saw in a demonstrator-only gallery called Stampin' Connection. This private gallery is just one of many perks you can enjoy, like getting 30% OFF your first qualifying order, when you Become a Demonstrator!

Instructions:
1)  Cut a sheet of Whisper White card stock to 4-1/4" x 11", then score to create a card base that folds to 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" with the fold on the left.
2)  Cut a sheet of Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack (white polka dot pattern) to 1-1/2" x 5-1/2". You can get three of these pieces from one sheet, you'll need two strips per card.
3)  Adhere one patterned paper strip across the top of the card front, and one across the bottom.
4)  Cut two strips of Silver Glimmer Paper to 1/2" x 5-1/2".
5)  Cut a sheet of Whisper White card stock to 3-1/4" x 5-1/2".
6)  Stamp 'Joyful Tidings' image from Christmas Messages stamp set near bottom right corner of white card stock layer, as shown.
7)  Turn stamped layer over, and adhere Silver Glimmer strips to the back, ensuring the sparkly side of the glimmer paper faces the front. Let each strip overlap the white layer by about 1/4". (you may find Sticky Strip to be the most convenient and best holding adhesive for this)
8)  Center this layer on the card front, and adhere using Stampin' Dimensionals.
9)  Stamp a mosaic shape from the Mosaic Madness stamp set, in Tempting Turquoise ink, onto Coastal Cabana card stock, three times. Leave enough room between images to punch them out without cutting into each other.
10) Punch out the three stamped mosaic shape images with the Mosaic Punch.
11) Place a Stampin' Dimensional in the back center of each mosaic punched image, and adhere each to card front, in the orientation shown.
12) Using the Crumb Cake marker, scribble a string coming from the top of the white layer, to the top of each mosaic punched piece.
13) Also scribble a loop to each side of each "string", just above the mosaic piece. Then add a "handle bar mustache" under the loops, to complete a "bow" for each "ornament".
14) Place a self-adhesive Rhinestone at the center of each ornament, as shown.
15) Address your Medium Whisper White Envelope, put your card inside, affix appropriate postage--and SEND!
