I’m so excited to be sharing some fun projects with you featuring the Jingle All the Way and Sleigh Ride Egelits Dies Holiday Bundle. The first project shows how to create a non-holiday themed card using the Holiday Bundle. For the second project, I’m using the same Jingle All the Way and Sleigh Ride Egelits Dies Holiday Bundle but creating a great Holiday Card.
Project #1 – You’re In My Thoughts Fox Card
The card base features the NEW Thick Whisper White Cardstock which I think is an absolute MUST HAVE item. I love the thickness and how great it holds up after adding your card front layers. The Thick Whisper White cardstock is really great for both cards I am sharing.
My base layer to the card front is Crumb Cake then I layered the Whisper White with the Garden Green Tree Layer. Before I laid down the Garden Green Layer, I tested where I wanted the Red Fox stamped then stamped the fox and attached the Garden Green Tree Layer created with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies. The Wild Wasabi Tree layer was then attached and I added my elements with the Sentiment which is from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set. For the final touches I added the Gold Metalic Button with a piece of the 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon and Linen Thread.
This card may seem complicated but it really is very simple and a great way to assemble a quick card using your Big Shot! Have fun and enjoy the Jingle All the Way and Sleigh Ride Egelits Dies Holiday Bundle.

Project #2 – Jingle All The Way Christmas Card
I really do love the Jingle All the Way and Sleigh Ride Egelits Dies Holiday Bundle. You can make quick, easy and elegant cards. Why do you need this Holiday Bundle? Let me just say that this bundle is easy to use, great for a variety of Holiday and non-Holiday cards and elegant.
The card front starts with Night of Navy which is layered with Whisper White cardstock that has a Night of Navy wash brushed. To created the background, I first stamped the stars with White Craft Ink then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder then using a paint brush, Night of Navy Classic Ink and water I lightly brushed the front of the Whisper White cardstock for the night sky effect.
Now, I wanted the trees to look like more of a shadow in the background so I used Basic Grey cardstock with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits dies to cut out the trees and layered the Basic Grey cardstock over the painted layer. The front layer is Whisper White cut using the Sleigh from the Sleigh Ride Edgelits dies then stamped with teh Silent Night from the Jingle All The Way Stamp Set that so nicely coordinates with the edgelits. I love that the sentiments are slightly curved to fit the edgelits.
