My First Christmas Card

July 14, 2020

for this year.  A PDF copy of the 2020 August to December Mini Catalogue is now available on the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Website.  It is truly lovely and I know you will love it when you see it, but it got me thinking about Christmas and what items I already have which I can use for Christmas and since I was already playing with the Birds & Branches Bundle, this card was born.  I began by stamping the tree trunk image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto Crumb Cake card using Early Espresso ink.  I sponged the edges of the stamped card using Crumb Cake ink and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Winter Woods stamp set onto the top right hand corner of the Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I coloured a length of Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon using the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and wrapped it over the ends of the stamped Crumb Cake card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler Card.  I cut Shaded Spruce card using the die from the Birds & More Dies and then cut around it using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I also cut Whisper White card using the same circle and attached the Shaded Spruce die cut on top.  I punched Cherry Cobbler card using the largest circle from my retired Crop-A-Dile and attached them over the circles on the Shaded Spruce die cut.  I stamped the flower from the Birds & Branches stamp set three times onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I cut out the flowers using the co-ordinating Birds & More Die and attached the flowers over the leaves on the Shaded Spruce Die Cut.  I stamped the solid bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped the detailed bird image over the top using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I cut out the bird using the co-ordinating Birds & More Die and attached it to the circle die cut.  I attached the image panel to the left hand side of the card front using dimensionals.  Lastly I added some Basic Rhinestones to the flower centres.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto a narrow strip of Crumb Cake card using Early Espresso ink.  I sponged the edges of the stamped card using Crumb Cake ink and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the solid bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set using Crumb Cake ink and stamped the detailed image over the top using Cherry Cobbler ink.  The bird is cut out using the co-ordinating Birds & More Die and attached to the inside panel just above the Crumb Cake.

I am kind of on the fence about this one.  What about you?  Do you like it?  Or is it a complete fail?  Let me know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
