Do you live in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, France, or Austria? If you do, this is the link to my 24/7 online Stampin’ Up! shop: https://www.janbcards.stampinup.neterday’s card gave me another great opportunity to use one of the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). Did you know that the design in the pack that has three rows of four Christmas trees that are very similar to the design above, can be punched out using the Pine Tree Punch? I wanted to use those for my card but the trees were a bit too tall because they had tree trunks. Instead, I stamped the image from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set. There is a separate stamp for the tree trunk but I omitted it for my trees. I made four stamped images, so I had one to decorate the inside of my card. The co-ordinating punch is called the Pine Tree Punch.
I embossed the top half of the Whisper White Cardstock (CS) layer, using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. Next I adhered the tartan design from the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP over the rest of the Whsiper White CS layer. As I didn’t have any Shaded Spruce Ribbon to wrap around the join, I usd a strip of cardstock over the join where the two pieces meet. I stamped the MERRY CHRISTMAS using Shaded Spruce Ink on a scrap of Whisper White CS, and die-cut it using the smallest regular size Stitched Rectangle Dies.
I couldn’t find a suitable bow in any of my die sets, so I checked through my retired die sets and found this bow, which is a super size, the Wonderful Wreaths Framelits Dies! Next I wanted my “ribbon” and the bow to look more like ribbon, so I painted both of them with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen! It worked a treat! I found the gold stars which came with the Most Wonderful Time Medley and put one on top of each tree.
I was happy with my card but I thought the white area looked rather bleak. It needed some kind of greenery! It was back to my Dies Reference Folders, and found these branches in the Cup of Cheer Dies. In my mind’s eye I wanted them to be holly so I could add some Cherry Cobbler CS to tie in with the tartan. My Crop-a-dile came to the rescue for the six punched 1/8″ circles for the holly berries. The final touch was to dab some wet glue randomly over the three trees. Next I sprinkled some Ice Stampin’ Glitter over the trees. Yes, I’m very happy with my card now!
Today I have a delightfully busy day sorting out happy mail for my September online customers! Everything is ready to be parcelled up, including a little surprise I brought back from Hong Kong with me as a special Thank You gift! That’s it from me today. I hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday, and I look forward to being back with you tomorrow. In the meantime, happy crafting.
