Three Stages of Christmas

August 9, 2019

As a demonstrator I was able to have a browse through the soon to be released Holiday Catalogue, a demonstrator perk that I love.  Anyway it got me thinking about Christmas and made me itch to create a Christmas Card.  So I started very simply by stamping the multiple tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto a Whisper White Note Card using Mossy Meadow ink. I stamped the greeting from the same stamp set onto the lower right hand corner using Merry Merlot ink.  Simple but effective.  I also stamped a little of the tree image onto the envelope.

Then I thought, lets get a little more creative, so I stamped the multiple tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto the right hand side of Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.  I stamped the greeting onto the lower right hand corner of the card using Merry Merlot ink. I stamped the single tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.  The image is cut out using the co-ordinating In The Woods dies.  I attached the single tree over the left hand edge of the stamped tree image.  The panel is attached to scored and folded Merry Merlot card. I decorated the inside of this card by stamping the multiple tree image partially onto the lower left hand edge of Whisper White card.

So now my creative juices are running hot, so I had to create another card just a little bit more stepped up.  This time I stamped the multiple tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto Whisper White card as before and the greeting onto the lower right hand corner as before.  I stamped the single tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set  twice onto scrap Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.  I cut one full tree out using the co-ordinating In The Woods Dies and the second tree is cut using the die which actually cuts small panels that can be lifted to give the tree more dimension.  I attached the full tree to the card front with the second tree over the top using tombow multipurpose glue and Mini Dimensionals under the “flaps”. The Whisper White card is attached to Merry Merlot card and then scored and folded Mossy Meadow card.  To decorate the inside of this card, I stamped the single tree partially onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.  I also stamped a greeting from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink.

Don’t they look lovely.  I must admit, I love the multiple tree image, it looks Christmassy without feeling like it should be covered in snow.  Suitable for an Aussie Christmas I believe, what about you?

Bye for now,

Kris
