My Last Christmas Card of 2018


Wow, I can't believe this is my last Christmas card for 2018! Christmas is exactly a week from now, and I'm guessing all of your Christmas card-making is over. I did want to share a card I made yesterday using the Winter Woods Bundle, which includes the Winter Woods Stamp Set and In the Woods Framelits Dies. These can be purchased separately, but you'll save 10% if you purchase the bundle. The stamp set and the dies are not retiring, but the bundle is! If you want to get your 10% off by purchasing the bundle, you only have until January 2, 2018. The dies are on backorder right now, but you can still order the bundle. You'll receive the stamp set soon, but the dies will be delivered once Stampin' Up! receives their shipment...sometime in March.

As promised, I used the Stitched Seasons Framelits that were added to the Clearance Rack yesterday. The frame dies in the set have stitching along the inside and outside of the blade, which gives you so many possibilities. The white greeting label stitching was made with the inside stitching of the smallest frame die. The stitching around the Cherry Cobbler opening was made with the outside stitching of the medium-sized frame die. Cool, huh?

Where did I get the red pearls? They're the regular pearls from the Pearl Basic Jewels, but I colored them with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend.


Dimensions:
  • Mossy Meadow:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base)
  • Cherry Cobbler:  5-1/4" x 4" (embossed layer)
  • Very Vanilla:  4-1/4" x 4-1/4" (tree, pinecone, and branches) & 5-1/4" x 4" (inside)
  • Whisper White:  3-1/2" x 2-1/2" (greeting label)
  • Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4-1/4" x 3" (plaid layer)

Instructions:
  1. Die-cut the medium-sized frame die from the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies out of the center of the Cherry Cobbler piece. The negative of the die is what is needed for the card. Emboss the piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Turn the piece over, and put SNAIL Adhesive around the frame opening. Attach the DSP piece to the center of the back of the piece, making sure to completely cover the frame opening. Fold the Mossy Meadow piece in half (fold on the top) to form the card base. Attach the Cherry Cobbler/DSP piece to the center of the card base.
  2. Stamp the tree stamp from the Winter Woods Stamp Set onto the square Very Vanilla piece two times using the Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the pine branch stamp onto the piece two times using the same ink pad. Stamp the pinecone stamp once onto the piece using the Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad. Die-cut one of the trees out with the smaller tree thinlit die that also cuts out "branches" from the In the Woods Framelits Dies. It is a little smaller than the stamped tree, so make sure to center the die when die-cutting. Die-cut the other tree out with the larger tree framelit die. Die-cut the branches out with two of the branch dies and die-cut the pinecone out with one of the pinecone dies.
  3. Die-cut a label out of the Whisper White piece using the the smallest frame die from the Stitched Seasons dies. Stamp the greeting stamp onto the right side of the label using the Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin' Pad. Attach the pinecone to the bottom, right corner of the label using a Mini Glue Dot. Attach the bottom of the pine branches to the back of the label, behind where the pinecone is, using Mini Glue Dots. Attach the label onto the DSP, centering it within the frame opening of the card.
  4. Attach the smaller, more detailed tree die-cut to the center of the larger tree die-cut. Attach it to the left side of the card (see picture). Attach a medium-sized gem from the Gold Faceted Gems to the top of the tree. Color 13 small pearls from the Pearl Basic Jewels using the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend. Attach the colored pearls to the tree (see picture).
  5. Inside of the Card (2nd picture):  Stamp the tree stamp from the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set onto the bottom left corner of the last Very Vanilla piece using the Mossy Meadow ink pad. Stamp the "May the warmth of Christmas..." and "Merry Christmas" stamps onto the top, center of the piece using the Cherry Cobbler ink pad. Attach the piece to the inside of the card.
Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.
