I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas to Remember Bundle from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog which opens for customer orders tomorrow. Sale-a-bration (Round 2) free product bonuses also begin, so I also used the Be Dazzling 6″x6″ Specialty Paper that is free with a $50 order. If you need a paper catalog or Sale-a-bration brochure and don’t already have a dedicated Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I’d love to send you one. Just drop me an email with your name and address. Without further ado…on with the card!
The inspiration for the colors for this card come from the coordinating Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. I used pieces to accent the envelope and inside of the card. Here’s a look at the gorgeous dies in the Christmas Pinecone Dies and the sentiments in the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set.
The Paper Cuts
- Crumb Cake Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (base) and 2″ x 9/16″ (sentiment)
- Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ and the more solid large die (w/solid pinecones)
- Basic White Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 4 6/8″ (front panel)and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)
- Soft Succulent Cardstock: more open large die (w/pinecone detail)
- Early Expresso Cardstock: (2″ x 5″) 3 large solid pinecone die cuts and 5 small solid pinecone die cuts.
- Painted Christmas 12″x12″ DSP: 4″ x 1/2″ (inside strip) and 2 1/4″ x 5 3/4″(envelope flap)
- Be Dazzling 6″x6″ Specialty Paper: (2″ x 5″) 3 large pinecone detail die cuts and 5 small pinecone detail die cuts.
I used the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments with Real Red Ink. I restamped them a couple of times to get the ink coverage and color depth I desired.
I adhered all the layers on my card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (except the front sentiment which is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals) because I like the application control and the placement wiggle room it affords. A good alternative if you are not a fan of liquid glue is to back the cardstocks with Adhesive Sheets before die cutting which will make them like stickers with a peel off backing.
The Be Dazzling 6″x6″ Specialty Paper is so pretty, but be aware that it is quite thick and will need a couple of passes through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I passed it through to the back and then back to the front, then being careful not to let anything slip, flipped the part of the sandwich with the clear plates on either side 180 degrees and passed it through again…upside down if you will. That sequined sparkle is worth the extra effort.
Thank you for stopping by. If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator. You can drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you!
