From a Tutorial

December 25, 2020

It’s Christmas morning and very quiet here in my house. I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy (COVID Free) New Year. I didn’t put my tree up this year because all my little helpers were away, so I thought I would share some cards with you today. I am a follower of Lyn Dunn, an American Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I receive her newsletter and one of them had a link to a tutorial for three cards. Unfortunately I lost the last page (third card) of instructions so I created two cards using her tutorial and added one of my own, inspired by her designs. For the first card, I embossed Whisper White card using one of the Wrapped in Texture Embossing folders and attached a piece of Shaded Spruce Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the card.

I wrapped the top of the Designer Series Paper with a length of Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and attached the panel to scored and folded Shaded Spruce card. I stamped the greeting from The Tree Angle stamp set onto Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped the floral image from The Tree Angle stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink.

I stamped the leaf image around the flowers using Shaded Spruce ink. I cut out the image using one of the Stitched Triangle Dies. I also cut Shaded Spruce card using the same die. I attached the trees together and placed them over the stamped Stitched So Sweetly die so that I could get an idea of where to stamp the tree trunk images using Crumb Cake ink. The trees are attached to the stamped Stitched So Sweetly Die using dimensionals. I attached the whole panel to the card front also using dimensionals. I tied a bow in a length of Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and attached it to the card front using a Glue Dot. To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a piece of the same Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper across the bottom of Whisper White card. I wrapped the top with a length of the Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon before the panel is attached to the inside of the card.

I stamped the tree trunk just above the ribbon using Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the flower and leaf image from The Tree Angle stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red and Shaded Spruce ink. The image is attached flat to the card over the top of the tree trunk image. For the second card, I embossed Whisper White card using the same folder from the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders. I cut Shaded Spruce patterned paper from the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper twice using the same Stitched Triangle Die that cuts out the floral tree.

The triangles are attached to each side of the embossed card and wrapped with the Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon. The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Shaded Spruce card. I stamped the greeting from The Tree Angle stamp set onto Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink. The image is cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I stamped the tree trunk onto the die cut before attaching it to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the floral and leaf images again and cut it out using the Stitched Triangle Die. The tree is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I tied a bow in a length of the Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon and attached it to the card front using a dimensional. To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a piece of the same Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper across the bottom of Whisper White card. I wrapped the top of the paper using the Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon before attaching the panel to the inside of the card. I stamped the tree trunk image from The Tree Angle stamp set above the ribbon. I stamped the floral and leaf images from The Tree Angle stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut out the tree using the co-ordinating Stitched Triangle Die and attached it to the top of the tree trunk.

For the last card, I embossed Whisper White card using the same folder from the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders. I cut the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper using a larger triangle from the Stitched Triangle Dies and attached them to the sides of the embossed card. I wrapped the panel using the Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon before attaching the panel to scored and folded Spruce card.

I stamped the floral tree using Real Red and Shaded Spruce ink onto scrap Whisper White card. I also stamped two other images from The Tree Angle stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink. I cut out all of the images using the co-ordinating Stitched Triangle Die. I stamped the tree trunk onto scrap Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink and cut it out. I attached the tree trunk to the back of the tall slender tree. I cut Whisper White card using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and attached all of the tree images to the die.

The panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from The Tree Angle stamp set onto Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out using a smaller die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a piece of the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper across the bottom ofWhisper White card. I wrapped the top of the paper using the Real Red 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon. I stamped the floral tree image onto scrap paper using Real Red and Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Stitched Triangle Die. I stamped the tree trunk onto scrap Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink and cut it out. I attached the tree trunk to the back of the tree before attaching the tree to the inside of the card, over the Designer Series Paper.

I am so happy with these cards. So thank you to Lyn for the tutorial and inspiration.

Bye for now,

Kris
