Trees for Sale Whimsical Christmas Card

Instructions for the Trees for Sale Whimsical Christmas Card

Step 1- 3D Technique

  1. Start by using the White Craft Ink pad to drag it across both Shaded Spruce card stock card pieces embossed with the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder. The “before and after” is pictured above. The White Craft Ink really helps the tree design pop! Set aside to dry.

Step 2-Stamping with Stampin’ Up! Masking Paper

  1. Take the center out of both of the Basic White card stock Fabulous Frame die cuts to stamp on.
  2. Use Soft Suede Ink to stamp the “trees for sale” sign on one of the Basic White card stock card pieces. Stamp a sign on a piece of the Masking Paper. (I used a pink sticky note so you could see what I was masking a little better)
  3. Fussy cut the sign from the Masking Paper. Cover the trees for sale sign on the stamped card piece with the Masking Paper sign.
  4. Use Mint Macaron Ink to stamp the solid small and medium sized trees.
  5. Stamp a small tree on the Masking Paper and fussy cut it.
  6. Use Shaded Spruce to stamp the detailed tree on the small tree only.
  7. Cover the small tree with the tree you cut from the Masking Paper.

Step 3-More Masking

  1. Use Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the detailed tree on all the medium trees.
  2. Remove the Masking Paper from the small tree and the Trees for Sale sign.

Step 4-Stamping the Scene

  1. Use Memento Ink to stamp the string of lights. Color the lights with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.
  2. Stamp some snowflakes and the paw prints in Balmy Blue Ink.
  3. On a scrap of Basic White card stock, stamp the dog in Soft Suede Ink. Use the Stampin’ Write Basic Black Marker to add some eyes, a nose and some spots to the dog. Fussy cut. (I cut the bottom jaw off because my dog did not look right with the jaw on)
  4. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the dog to the scene.
  5. Stamp the sentiment “Christmas Greetings” in Real Red Ink on the 3/4 x 3 inch Basic White card stock strip.

Step 5-Stamping the Inside

  1. On the second Basic White card stock Fabulous Frame die cut, stamp “so very merry” in Real Red Ink.
  2. Stamp the snowflakes in Balmy Blue Ink.

Step 6-Assembling the Inside

  1. Assemble the inside of the card. Adhere one of the Shaded Spruce card stock embossed with the Whimsical Woodland embossing folder to the inside of the Mint Macaron card stock card base.
  2. Adhere the stamped Basic White card stock.
  3. Complete the inside by adhering the Real Red card stock Fabulous Frame die cut.

Step 7-Assembling the Card Front

  1. Adhere the second embossed Shaded Spruce card stock card piece to the front of the Mint Macaron card stock card base.
  2. Adhere the stamped Basic White card stock scene to the card front.
  3. Add the Real Red card stock Fabulous Frame die cut.
  4. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment.
  5. Embellish with the Real Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

2022-2024 In Colors

This “FABULOUS” butterfly card is a lot of fun to make! Here’s how.

Measurements

  • Thick Basic White card stock card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches
  • Parakeet Party card stock: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches
  • Starry Sky card stock: 2 1/4 x 5 inches
  • 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 inch Designer Series Paper in Orchid Oasis: 2 1/8 x 4 7/8 inches
  • Basic White card stock: 7/8 x 2 inches (sentiment)
  • Starry Sky card stock: 1 x 2 1/8 inches (sentiment border)
  • Basic White card stock: 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches for stamping the butterflies

Instructions

  1. Stamp the Butterfly Brilliance stamp using the Stamparatus and the 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch Basic White card stock and Memento Ink.
  2. Stamp the sentiment “You are really FABULOUS” (from the Slim Sayings stamp set) in Starry Sky Ink onto the 7/8 x 2 inch Basic White card stock.
  3. Use the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Ink in Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky and Parakeet Party to color the butterflies (see photo following the instructions).
  4. Use the Brilliant Wings Dies to cut the butterflies out with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

  6. Adhere the Orchid Oasis Designer Series Paper to the 2 1/4 x 5 inch Starry Sky card stock.
  7. Adhere the sentiment to the 1 x 2 1/8 inch Starry Sky card stock.
This is how I colored the butterflies

Embossing with Brilliant Wings Dies

Use the hatched pattern die in the Brilliant Wings Dies to emboss onto the 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Parakeet Party card stock. You will need to do this 3 times to create the pattern I made.

Assembling the Card

  1. As shown in the photo above, adhere the embossed Parakeet Party card stock to the front of the Thick Basic White card stock card base.
  2. Adhere the Orchid Oasis Designer Series Paper/Starry Sky card stock card piece to the left side of the Parakeet Party card stock
  3. Position the butterflies and the sentiment on the card front. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them.
  4. Tie a bow with the Starry Sky and Parakeet Party 1/8 inch Metallic Woven Ribbon. Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow under the sentiment piece.
  5. Embellish with the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots as desired.

Voila! You have a “FABULOUS” card to pass on to a friend!
