Good Morning! Today I am celebrating Christmas in July with my first Christmas Card for the year made with the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath bundle. And I paired it with the new Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper from the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog that will be available on Aug 4. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I embossed a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom of a panel of the new Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper with Stampin’ Seal. The Heartwarming Hugs DSP is one of my favorites from the new catalog because it combines Real Red, Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz in cute traditional holiday prints! I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the layered DSP panel to the front of a Real Red card base.
I cut a berry wreath from vellum card stock using the die from the Build a Wreath Dies that come in the Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath bundle. I cut a leaf wreath using the leaf wreath die from the same bundle. I adhered the two wreaths together with glue dots and used glue dots to adhere the wreaths to the front of the card. I die cut the bow and extra bow loops from the Build a Wreath Dies from Real Red card stock and adhered it to the bottom of the wreath with glue dots.
I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on Real Red card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the ends of the label with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I punched the ends of a Whisper White strip with the same punch and adhered it to the back of the label. I adhered the layered label to the bottom of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I trimmed the wreath with trios of Red Rhinestones to finish off the card front.
I love a Christmas wish on the inside of my Christmas cards, so I used the inside sentiment from the Toile Christmas (the one with the beautiful cardinal) cling stamp set that is carried over from last year and available in the Annual catalog now. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.
The first of many Christmas cards for this year to kick off Christmas in July! A very simple wreath with rhinestone berries on pretty Christmas paper!
