The Perfectly Plaid Bundle has been so useful this season! I have lost count of how many cards, tags, and gift décor I have made with it! This card was for the second Stamp a Stack of Christmas cards I had this month! (It’s my busy season-sorry I haven’t posted as much!)
I started off with a Crumb Cake card base and then a Shaded Spruce background. To create texture, I used the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder. Next, I used the Pine Tree punch to cut out 3 trees with the coordinating Wrapped In Plaid 6×6 paper. To create dimension, I used Dimensionals to make the trees pop up on the front of the card. TIP: To center your trees, I adhere the first one in the middle. Then I added a strip of Crumb Cake that I used for the sentiment.
The Pine Cones are accented with Wink of Stella to add some sparkle and I topped each tree with a Gold Metallic pearl. To finish the card, I added a small Linen Thread bow to the center tree. Such a versatile set!
Guess what is coming next week!!! Stampin’ Up! Online Extravaganza on November 20–22, 2019. Stay tuned for more details!
This card was made for my first Stamp a Stack and it was a favorite with my girls! It was a fun and simple card to create and make! The Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch are a must have this season! I have seen so many gorgeous cards, 3-d items, tags, and scrapbook pages using the duo!
For this card, I first stamp the Crumb Cake with the Birch background stamp (I did stamp off first to make it more subtle). Next, I stamped the fir tree with Shaded Spruce onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels. Then I tied a piece of the stunning Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ ribbon into a knot and adhered it below the tree.
I placed a piece of the Toile Tidings DSP onto the card base and then used Dimensionals to adhere the shape with the stamped tree on top of that. I added 2 Gold Foil sprigs that I cut from the Sprig Punch. The final touch was a Gold Metallic Pearl!
What is funny, is last year I looked at the Sprig punch and thought “I don’t need that”. I was sooooo wrong! I love that punch! I have seen cute wreaths made from several that are layered into a circle.
Stay tuned for a 24 hour sale tomorrow, Monday, October 21st!!!!
If you want to make a ton of Christmas cards in a snap, this is your answer! The Wrapped in Plaid suite has so much to offer! You can purchase the whole suite in one easy bundle or piece by piece!
I made this over our retreat weekend for my Sweet n Simple card class that is this week! I love it when the bundles have punches with them since it makes the classes so easy!
I ran the Cherry Cobbler through with the Winter Knit 3-d Embossing Folder (another great product in the Holiday Catalog). Then I punched the tree out on Whisper White with the Pine Tree Punch. I then cut a small piece of plaid paper from the Wrapped in Plaid 6×6 DSP and adhered it to the back of the Whisper White.
I topped it off with the sentiment, a bow made from the Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ ribbon, and a Gold Pearl! That’s it! Be sure to add some DSP to your next order! Look at this great deal going on!
