I love my Stamperatus it makes lining the stamps up so easy! I use mine more that blocks lately.
Lay the three pieces on the card stock close the lid they will adhere to the top piece .Now all you have to do is ink them up and close the lid and press!
I stamped all the black pieces first. With the light bulb end just stamp one move it over and stamp another. You will need 4 bulb ends. Next we will stamp the light bulbs star merry and bright. With these you will use real red and garden green alternating the colors.
Make sure to line it up with the bulb end. And pretty soon
I used Crushed Curry to stamp the lights shine!
Next color in the lights on the string alternating Real red and garden green. Use crushed curry for the stars. You can connect your black lines with the stampin write black marker AC page 163 #100082.
The Card front is done all that's left is to put it together with snail adhesive AC page183 #104332
Use the 5.25 x 4 whisper white for the inside.
Use memento black ink to stamp the light string and then alternate real red and garden green to color the lights.
Then stamp a greeting!
Assemble fromt of card with snail adhesive Garden green gold and white and attach to Real red card base.
