Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas card with a greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas cling stamp set and a forest of plaid Christmas trees. The trees are all punched from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper using the Pine Tree punch! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I started with a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock that I ran through the Winter Knit embossing folder. I then adhered it to the front of a Shaded Spruce card base. I selected 7 plaids from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP. I punched out a tree from each using the Pine Tree punch.
Then I die cut 7 stars from gold foil using one of the stars in the star spray die cut in the Stitched Stars dies. The large star in the Twinkle Builder punch would also work well or gold star shaped faceted gems. These would probably take less time, but I didn’t have them, so I improvised and found that this star die cut was a good size. I adhered a star to the top of each tree with liquid glue.
I then arranged the trees and adhered them to the card front. I used liquid glue to attach the back trees and dimensionals to attach the ones in front. I stamped the Celebrate the Season sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Versamark ink on a strip of Cherry Cobbler. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the end and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished it off with a gold glitter dot from the upcoming Christmastime is Here limited release suite next month.
I punched part of another plaid tree and attached it to a Whisper White panel with liquid glue. It’s hard to see, but I embossed a strip of Cherry Cobbler with the Winter Knit embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom. I then adhered the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.
This is an elegant Christmas Card that sparkles with the gold foil touches in the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and stars. But it also has a flannel and knit sweater kind of look with the embossed background coupled with the DSP. Best of all, it comes together pretty quickly. I hope you like it. Thanks for visiting!
