Happy Wednesday! Did you realize that it’s four months until Christmas? I have about 50 Christmas cards to make and I have barely made a dent. Today’s card should help – it’s an elegant and sparkly card made with the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees bundle and it’s pretty easy to make. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I embossed a panel of Pearlescent specialty paper with the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder. I love the musical theme for Christmas cards, but this embossing folder will cause a little shrinkage after embossing, so I use a paper 1/8″ longer than I need and I trim it with my paper trimmer after it’s been embossed and it fits perfect! Another thing to keep in mind is that you want to check the clefs to make sure your embossed panel isn’t upside down or backwards. After trimming it, I adhered the embossed panel to the front of a Thick Very Vanilla card base. And I also heard that the music is to Joy to the World – perfect for a Christmas card!
I cut the largest tree from the Christmas Trees dies from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees bundle from the gold metallic specialty paper. I cut two of the detailed trees, one from the Be Dazzling specialty paper, A Sale A Bration item that is free with a $50 purchase before shipping and taxes, and one from the gold Brushed Metallic foil. I adhered them to the card front with mini glue dots.
I cut a short length of Cherry Cobbler and gold metallic ribbon, tied a knot and trimmed the ends, and adhered it to the bottom of the card with glue dots. I finished the front with three gold glitter dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees cling stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I cut a small tree from Be Dazzling specialty paper and adhered it next to the sentiment and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The dies from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees bundle have a wild, freeform feel that is especially elegant with shiny foils and specialty papers. The three different texture shiny papers go well together and are great paired with the Pearlescent paper background. And it is so quick and easy to make!
