I am working on my Christmas projects now, as I want to be ready when the season arrives because I want to “enjoy” it. I usually am running around on trying to get everything done before it’s “too late”. Yeah, let’s get ready together!
I looked through my goodies this morning, gathering product up to create this morning. I pulled out my Wrapped In Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, so I knew I would use the “coordinating” cardstock, Cherry Cobbler, and Shaded Spruce. Have I mentioned (of course I have), how much I love our Stampin’ UP! products because everything coordinates so beautifully? Yes, I love, love, love it!
So I started out with a piece of 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. I cut a piece of Shaded Spruce Cardstock at 4-1/8″ X 5-3/8″. And then my Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper at 4″ X 5-1/4″.
I used a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the holly image from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set with Soft Suede Classic Ink. I used my Paper Snips to cut my holly images. I used my coordinating Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color in the images. I stamped the Merry Christmas Greetings with Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.
I knew my project needed something besides the sentiment and holly on the front so I turned to my Christmas Layers Dies, perfect! I cut some foliage in the dies with Shaded Spruce Cardstock, and the yummy snowflakes with Whisper White Cardstock, and added these elements to my project. I sprinkled in some cut Delicata Golden Glitz Ink dots all over my card, the dotted stamp is in the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set too. I threw in some beautiful Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels too.
And don’t forget the inside!
I love to stamp my envie and carry on my project to the inside of my cards, and this one was no different. I added a 3/4″ X 4″ strip of the same Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper on the inside, a small sprig of Shaded Spruce Cardstock and I sprinkled more little dots again using the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink on the inside.
