Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a crafty weekend!
Today’s card satisfies two challenges: my own 15-Day Christmas Card Challenge and the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #259-Traditional Christmas.
I designed this card with a traditional color combination and slightly modern Christmas trees from the Stampin’ Up!® Tree Angle stamp set.
The Tree Angle stamp set is from the 2020 August-December Stampin’ Up!® Mini Catalog. Tuesday December 8 is the start of the Giant End of Year Close Out Sale! I listed the retiring products and discounts which you can download here:
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches; Whisper White CS: 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, 3 x 5 inches to die cut a stitched rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and also to cut 2 stitched triangles from the Stitched Triangles Dies; and Red Foil Sheet: two strips at 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches to die cut the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
Using the Shaded Spruce ink stamp the sentiment “Joy & Cheer” onto the Stitched Rectangle Die Cut. For the Stitched Triangle Die-Cut Christmas Tree I tried both stamping first then die-cutting and die-cutting then stamping. Lining up the stamp on the cut Stitched Triangle is easier.
Stamp the inside of the Whisper White CS card base with the sentiment “Happy wishes to you and yours” in Shaded Spruce ink. Stamp the small group of ornaments in the upper right-hand corner first in Shaded Spruce ink, then in Real Red ink. Stamp the smaller triangle in Real Red ink on to the smaller Stitched Triangle Die-Cut.
Adhere the Red Foil 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch strips to the back of the Whisper White CS embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I use the Silicon Sheet to be sure the excess glue won’t stick to my table. Adhere this card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Red Foil stitched circle and stitched rectangle with the sentiment stamped on it.
To adhere the green Christmas Tree I applied two Stampin’ Dimensionals to the bottom and used the Multipurpose Glue on the top.
Adhere the red Christmas tree to the card front with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.
You guessed it-time for Bling!
I used the pick side of the Take Your Pick tool to transfer the Star Designer Elements and the putty side to transfer the small silver circle sequins in the Snowflake Sequins. I wanted to add a little snow to the snowflake background with the silver sequins.
And Viola! you have a Traditional Christmas card to send to your favorite guy!
