Good Morning! Today I have another Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set and Beautiful Boughs dies.
It’s in blue and gold and uses the design from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches #408. 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 by dusting a panel of Seaside Spray card stock with with my embossing buddy and randomly stamping the 3 branch stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in VersaMark ink. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I matted it with gold foil paper and adhered it to a Seaside Spray card base with dimensionals.
I cut 2 of the small branches using the Beautiful Boughs dies in gold foil. I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in VersaMark ink on a strip of Seaside Spray cardstock, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the end and backed it with a strip of gold foil and arranged it on the card with the two gold foil branches.
I finished the card front with a gold satin bow and gold glitter dots, both from the upcoming Christmastime is Here suite (available Nov 1).
On a panel of Whisper White, I stamped the corners with branches from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set with VersaMark ink. I also stamped the sentiment from the Merry Christmas to all photopolymer stamp set in the middle. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I adhered it to the inside of the card.
Embossed cards at Christmas are so elegant. And this one is a simple design that easy to make. That’s a double bonus!!
