Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Believe Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today’s card is a Christmas Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer stamp set and the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling stamp set. I teamed these up with the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper to make a light and cheerful Christmas Card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I was inspired by the sketch in the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge 426 – TSOT426.

I started with a strip of Sparkle Glimmer paper that I used the die cut from the Budding Blooms dies to cut a scalloped edge. I cut a strip of the striped Let It Snow DSP and adhered a strip of Coastal Cabana to the back and edged it with the Sparkle Glimmer paper scalloped edge. I tied a piece of Real Red curly ribbon around the bottom and attached it to a Real Red card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the open leaf tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set on a piece of Coastal Cabana using VersaMark ink. I sprinkled white embossing powder on it and heat set it. Then I punched it out it out with the Pine Tree punch. I punched another pine tree from Sparkle Glimmer paper and attached the trees to the card with liquid glue and dimensionals.

I stamped the believe sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas on a strip of Coastal Cabana in VersaMark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the ends and attached it to a strip of Real Red and attached it to the card. I finished off the card front with three read glittered enamel dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel of Whisper White. I stamped the tree image again in Coastal Cabana in the lower left of the inside panel. I added a strip of the same designer paper that I used on the front of the card to the bottom of the inside panel an adhered it to a Coastal Cabana mat before attaching it to the inside of the card. I also stamped the tree image on the lower left of a white envelope.

Coastal Cabana and Real Red make a cheerful and happy Christmas card. And I guess that this shows how to make a non-plaid Christmas card with the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid bundle. On Sunday I will be on Facebook Live making a Plaid Christmas card using this bundle on my business page at 1:00 PM Eastern time. I welcome you to tune in. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
