Stampin’ Up! Festive & Bright Christmas Note Card

Here is a card that I made at the Inkin’ Krew Retreat designed by the wonderful Sue Prather. It uses the Festive & Bright Bundle (Festive & Bright Stamp Set + Festive Finishes Dies) from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog. Sue paired it with the Peaceful Prints 12″x12″ Specialty DSP that is free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. Sale-A-Bration ends on September 30th, so hurry! The Be Dazzling 6″x6″ Specialty Paper has sold out and the Sheep Dies, and the Summer Shadows Dies are in low inventory.

The Paper Cuts

  • Real Red Cardstock:  5-1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ (card base)
  • Basic Black Cardstock: two 5-1/4″ panels (front & inside) and 4-1/8″ x 2-1/2″ (front)
  • Basic White Cardstock:  4″ x 3″ (embossed/stamping), sentiment label die cut from Festive Finishes Dies, and 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ (inside panel)
  • Peaceful Prints 12″x12″ Specialty Paper: 5-1/8″ x 3-3/8″(front layer)

The Creating

With StazOn Black Ink, stamp the garland image from Festive & Bright Stamp Set along the bottom edge of the 4″ x 3″ Basic White panel and the 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ Basic White inside panel. Color the stamped images with the Real Red and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers. Pass the top portion (above the stamping) through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the pine patterned Wintry 3D Embossing Folder with the No. 1 and No. 4 sandwich. Also run through the envelope flap. Stamp the sentiment on the die cut label with Real Red Ink,.

I wrapped a 5″ piece of the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around the embossed panel and secured to the back with Mini Glue Dots. I added a small bow from the same ribbon next to it with a Mini Glue Dot and I popped on the sentiment label with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel to the 4-1/8″ x 2-1/2″ Basic Black panel. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back. I adhered the remaining panels with liquid glue as shown and popped on the decorated embossed layer.
