Good Morning! Today made a country style Christmas card with the Come to Gather Designer Series paper, the pretty peacock gingham paper, and the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs bundle. This bundle combines the Peaceful Boughs cling stamp set and the Beautiful Boughs dies at a 10% discount. 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 embossing Crumb cake Card stock with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. I lightly sponged it with crumb cake ink to enhance the texture and then adhered it to a Pretty Peacock mat. I added the Pretty Peacock gingham paper from the Come to Gather DSP pack to the bottom and wrapped a length of the Come to Gather Crumb Cake Ribbon around the seam with snail adhesive. I added tape to the back to secure it. I adhered the layered panel to a Real Red card base with liquid glue.
I die cut the following using the Beautiful Boughs dies to make the arrangement:
- A medium branch from Vellum card stock
- Two small branches from Pretty Peacock card stock
- Three small solid pine cones from Crumb Cake card stock
- Three small textured pine cones from Soft Suede card stock
I glued the Soft Suede pine cones to the Crumb cake pine cones to get the layered look. I built the arrangement using glue dots to adhere the pieces, starting with the Vellum branch on the bottom, two Pretty Peacock branches next and topped it with the pine cones. I tied a short length of the Crumb Cake ribbon in a knot to make a faux bow and adhered it to the arrangement with glue dots.
I stamped the Seasons Greetings sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Real Red ink on a scrap of Whisper White. I cut it out with the small label die from the Beautiful Boughs dies. I added two Pretty Peacock faceted dots to the label and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I then nestled the pine cone arrangement under the label and adhered it with glue dots.
On the inside of the card, I added a strip of the Pretty Peacock gingham paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the small branch from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Pretty Peacock after stamping off twice. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Real Red ink. I matted the panel with Pretty Peacock and adhered it to the inside of the card.
I love country decor and the gingham and natural elements of the wood planks, pine cones and branches give this card a comfy holiday feel – all you need is a warm fireplace!
