So Very Merry Card Class @ Home - Card #1

Here's the first card for my current Free Card Class @ Home - Christmas in July Edition. Sadly, this is my last Christmas in July Class for this year. July went by way too fast! This class features the So Very Merry Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!'s Online Exclusives.

I start my weekly Card Class @ Home every Thursday, and they end on the following Wednesday. The Free class video is my weekly Thursday Live on my Facebook Page and YouTube Channel @ 7:30 pm (ET). You can see the video for this class below. I have added chapters to the video, so you can skip to the part you want to watch, too.

How would you like to get the card kits (includes the cardstock (cut, embossed, & die-cut), Designer Series Paper (DSP), & ribbon to make two each of the three cards in the class FREE?

What makes the So Very Merry Stamp Set so special is that all of the images have a stained glass look. I chose the Santa stamp for today's card. Isn't he cool? I colored him in with Stampin' Blends. Stampin' Blends come in a 2 pack. The blends that are actual Stampin' Up colors include a light & dark version of the color they are. I used the two different shades in each set to go along with the stained glass theme - Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, & Daffodil Delight. His face was colored in with the Ivory marker from the Bronze & Ivory Stampin' Blends. 

I stamped a holly branch from the set around the perimeter of the Real Red card base using Real Red ink. I forgot this step in the class video above, but that's okay. I think it looks good both ways.

The Santa stained glass image was punched out with the 2-3/8" Circle Punch from the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. This punch is perfect for this stamp and the angel stamp in the set. I like the white border the punch made around the circle image, too.

I usually pick out one DSP pack for all three of my class cards, but this time, I used a different one for the first card. I did use one DSP pack on the other two. I wanted a traditional Christmas red & green color combo for my Santa card. We don't have any traditional Christmas DSP right now (that will change soon), so I chose the Regals 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP). I used Real Red & Shaded Spruce sheets from the pack.

As with all of my Card Class @ Homes, I picked out one embellishment for all three cards, and I chose the Festive Pearls from the Annual Catalog for this class. These pearls are perfect for Christmas projects. The pearls are all small ones, and there are four different colors...Cherry Cobbler, light green, silver & gold. On today's card, I put three Cherry Cobbler pearls around the greeting. The Festive Pearls are NOT included in the card kits, but you can get them added FREE...

If You Place a $50 Order (before shipping & tax), Using Host Code VAAW7VPM, You'll Get a Full Pack of the Festive Pearls Added to Your Card Kits for FREE!

For the inside of the card, I stamped the holly branch onto the bottom, left corner with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and I colored it in with Cherry Cobbler & Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends.

I have a list of supplies you'll need to make the cards in the class (ink pads, adhesive, etc), and you can see it by CLICKING HERE. You can substitute with products you have on hand, too. You can see what comes in the class's card kits in the video above.
