Good Morning! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I have a Christmas card this morning made with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here specialty designer series paper. I love cards with dimensional wreaths and so I made one with the small bough from the Beautiful Boughs dies in the bundle. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I cut out 7 small boughs from the Beautiful Boughs dies using Old Olive card stock. I sponged the outside of each bough with Old Olive ink so that it would have some texture. I cut out a circle with two medium circle dies from the Layering Circles dies using Early Espresso card stock. I adhered the boughs around the circle with liquid glue on the stem and lowest needle section. I tucked the last stem underneath the first branch’s upper needles, so that it looks like a continuous circle of pine branches.
I cut a panel of the pinecone paper from the Christmastime Is Here specialty designer series paper and adhered it to a Poppy Parade card base with liquid glue. I stamped the Seasons Greetings sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on Crumb Cake card stock and cut it out with the small label die from the Beautiful Boughs dies.
I adhered the wreath to the card front with mini dimensionals. I made a bow with Real Red ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the wreath with glue dots. I finished the wreath off with red glitter enamel dots. I adhered the label to the card with mini dimensionals.
I stamped the greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Poppy Parade on a Whisper White panel for the inside of the card. I stamped the medium pine sprig stamp over the sentiment in Old Olive after stamping off twice. I added a strip of the pinecone DSP to the bottom and adhered it to a Crumb Cake mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.
I thought the Christmastime Is Here pinecone paper would coordinate nicely with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs bundle. What do you think?
Join me on Sunday at 1 PM on my Facebook Page for my weekly Facebook Live session as I re-do one of the Make and Takes that I received from Stampin’ Up! On Stage a couple of weeks ago. It did not come out very well and I will show you how to make it better (I hope it comes out better). I will post it on my Monday blog so you can catch it there if you have a busy weekend planned. I think all weekends are going to be busy for the next month!
