Christmas

Peaceful Noel

I love simple, neutral tones to make some of my Christmas Cards! The Peaceful Place DSP paired with the Music Melody 3D folder did not disappoint! I sometimes struggle to keep it simple when I make my cards-kind of like cooking. Oh let’s add a dash of this, and a smidge of that-then poof! The card now has multiple layers!! I had my annual Stamp a Stack of cards a couple weeks ago and this one one of their favorite designs! Minimal stamping and tools helped them make their 4 of this one in a snap!

Start by using the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder with a 2 3/4″ x 5″ Basic White card stock and run it through the Stamp, Cut, and Emboss Machine (SCEM). Next, use a Stampin’ Sponge (I cut them in 1/4ths to get more for my money) and swipe it with the Smoky Slate ink pad. Be sure to start lightly or practice on scratch paper first so you can get the right look. Then you can choose the DSP that you like and cut it to 2 3/4″ x 5 and then a piece of Silver Foil at 5″ x 1″. You will adhere your Basic Gray mat piece 4″ x 5 1/4″ on top of the Smoky Slate card base (creased/folded in half); then you will adhere the embossed piece and the DSP on top. The Silver Foil will cover the middle section with any overlap.

The sentiment is stamped from the Happy Hollydays stamp set and cut out with the smaller label in the Seasonal Labels dies. I loved the size and simplicity of this sentiment. To add more pop, use a Dimensional in the center of the Snowflake (well done Stampin’ Up!-it is the perfect size!). The Silver Mesh ribbon is a lovely touch since it is so dainty, but delivers such a wow on your projects! I just snipped a tiny bit and pinched it in the center before I placed the snowflake on top. The snowflake looked so much better with the ribbon and the Basic Rhinestone on top!

Christmas

Using a Tea Light with Vellum

I can’t believe that Christmas is in days!! Wow! But I think we can all agree that 2020 can see it’s self out! It has been crazy busy in our house these past couple of weeks! And now it is cold (finally) in Texas-we may see a few stray snowflakes too! So this card was a perfect pick for today!

For today’s card, I used products from the Snowflake Splendor suite! One of the many reasons I love Stampin’ Up! is that they are on top of the latest trends in style, colors, and pattern combinations! The Snowflake Splendor DSP has a whimsical blend of blues and grays with a pop of purple to shake up this nontraditional color scheme. It makes for quick card making too! I just look at the back of the paper pack and the colors are listed right there for easy reference!

  1. I used Stampin’ Seal on a piece of the Snowflake Splendor DSP (4″ x 5 1/4″)and placed it top of the front of the Misty Moonlight card base. (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ folded in half).
  2. I then ran two from above through the SCEM with the label die from the So Many Snowflakes dies. I ran it through a second time to get it to cut all the way through both layers.
  3. Next, I cut out a piece of Vellum with the Nested Label a little bigger than the label die from step 2.
  4. Use Stampin’ Seal+ on the very edge of the Vellum label and adhere it to the inside of the card to cover the opening we just cut out.
  5. Cut several smaller sized snowflakes using Balmy Blue Glimmer paper, Silver Foil, & Misty Moonlight papers.
  6. Stamp the vellum with the sentiment of your choice with Night of Navy ink. Be sure to let it dry.
  7. Layer the snowflakes and embellish with the Iridescent Pearls.
  8. There is a piece of Whisper White inside the card and a bow made from the Crinkled Whisper White Ribbon.

It’s hard to see in this picture, but the recipient can place a flameless tealight under the card tented open. My girls at club loved this card last month!

Many Christmas Blessings to you all!
