Hello! Happy November! I can’t believe how fast this year is going for me! I am showing a Christmas card today because I am worried I will not be able to create and send all of my Christmas cards on time. It is good to get started early. However, I am not forgetting Thanksgiving. I plan to do a few Thanksgiving cards in the blogs over the next few weeks.
This is a fun and simple Christmas card using the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, the Pine Tree Punch and the ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper (DSP). You will find the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The ‘Tis The Season DSP is in the 2020 Stampin’ Up! August-December Mini Catalog. Let’s get started!
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches and 2 1/4 x 4 inches; Real Red CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; and ‘Tis The Season DSP 2 x 5 1/4 inches and 4 different designs at 2 1/4 ix 6 inches.
Using Garden Green ink, stamp the sentiment “Merry Christmas” on the 2 1/4 x 4 inch Whisper White CS leaving space around the sentiment so you can punch it out. Stamp the sentiment “Hoping that your busy year…” on the inside of the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Whisper White CS card base.
Use the Everyday Label Punch to punch out the sentiment “Merry Christmas”. Set aside.
Get together the Pine Tree Punch and the 4 ‘Tis The Season DSP strips that measure 2 1/4 x 6 inches.
Punch out one Pine Tree from each strip of ‘Tis The Season DSP.
Adhere the 2 x 5 1/4 inch strip of the ‘Tis The Season DSP to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Real Red CS. Fold the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Whisper White CS card base at the 5 1/2 inch score line and use the Bone Folder to make the fold crisp. Adhere the Real Red/DSP card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.
Position all of the Pine Trees and the sentiment on the card front. Adhere two of the Pine Trees flat.
Adhere the third Pine Tree and the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Adhere the fourth Pine Tree to the inside of the card.
Now for the Bling! The Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the Star Designer Elements can both be found in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.
Place a star over each tree and then scatter the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
Viola! You have a fun and simple Christmas card!
