Cards - Christmas

Snowflake Wishes and the Winter Snow Embossing Folder

You are probably done or nearly done with the Christmas card making.  I have just a few left.  That sounds so good.  The card today might be one you want to consider.  It uses the Snowflake Wishes bundle and the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.

The card base is Thick Whisper White that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

Stamp with one of the large snowflakes from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.  Stamp off Pool Party ink for this.

Emboss a 2 3/4 x 4 piece of Pool Party with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.  Glue to the center of the card.

Cut a 1 x 5 1/2 piece of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.  Stamp on it with a sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.  Stamp in Night of Navy over toward the right side of the paper.  Glue to the card front.

Add some of the Adhesive Sheet to the back of a piece of Night of Navy card stock.  Cut out a snowflake with the So Many Snowflakes dies.  Peel the backing and add to the card.

That's it.  You are done!

For the inside of the card, stamp the large snowflakes again in stamped off Pool Party.  The saying is from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Night of Navy.

Heartwarming Hugs Tailored Tag Punch Christmas Card

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #642.  We are using the colors Real Red, Pear Pizzazz, and Mossy Meadow.  All of those colors are found in the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.

CCMC642

I'm showing a card today that is made using the Tailored Tag Punch.  I have a video to show you just how easy it is to make this card.  

CCMC #642 Heartwarming Hugs by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Thick Whisper White cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored and folded at 8 1/2.

Pick out the patterns that you want to use from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.  Punch out lots shapes using the Tailored Tag Punch.

Start near the bottom of the card front.  Adhere the first two patterned papers.  These should meet in the center of the front.  Make sure they are straight.  The ends will hang over the front a little, but we'll clip that off later.  Go down and finish the bottom.  Look at all the patterns and make sure you like the combinations together.  Remember that these papers all have two sides with different patterns.  All these pieces will hang over a lot.  Trim the edges.  Remember that these parts can be used again if they can be fitted somewhere else.  Now just work up to the top of the card.  Turn the card over and clip away any extra pieces.

CCMC #642 Heartwarming Hugs Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the Real Red Braided Linen Trim along with the Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim (January-June Mini Catalog) to tie around the card and tie together into a knot.

Set up the Merry Christmas stamp from Perfectly Plaid on your Stamparatus.  This will allow you to stamp more than once so that you have a dark crisp sentiment.  Stamp on Whisper White.  Punch this out with the Tailored Tag Punch as well.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Add Basic Red Rhinestones to complete the front of the card.

CCMC #642 Heartwarming Hugs Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, just finish the bottom with more punch outs.

So here is the video. 

 

I hope you'll try this technique.  You can make these in a flash.

In the Pines Christmas Card

I love trees.  I've said that before.  I've enjoyed using the In the Pines bundle.  One of the best things about Stampin' Up! is that so many of their products coordinate.  You can see that is this card.

In the Pines with In Good Taste Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Shaded Spruce 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

Another piece of Shaded Spruce 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 is run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder.  Glue to the card front.

Add of piece of wood look paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It measures 2 x 5 1/2.  Add a little to the left of the card front.

Cut a large and a small solid tree from Shaded Spruce using the Pine Woods dies.  Cut a large and a small detailed tree from Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Adhere the two trees, solid and detailed, together.

Glue the large tree over the designer paper.  Add the small tree with dimensionals a little below and overlapping the large tree.

In the Pines with In Good Taste Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set.  Stamp in Real Red ink.  It's cut out with the Snow Time dies.  

Add a loop of the Real Red Braided Linen Trim to the card with glue dots.  Add the saying over this with dimensionals.

Finish up with a few of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

By deleting the rhinestones and changing the sentiment, I think this could be a great masculine card.

Did you see how well all of these products worked together?  That's Stampin' Up!

In the Pines with In Good Taste Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of my card.  I added a small tree.  The saying is from Wrapped in Christmas.
