Good Morning! I have been having fun with the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance cling stamp set, making Christmas cards this past week and here’s another take. This time, I stamped an evergreen forest in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent and accented it with touches of gold! 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 Balmy Blue with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Balmy Blue card base. I used my blending brush to apply Balmy Blue ink on the top of a Basic White panel to color a sky. Then I used the brusk to blend in some Pacific Point ink around the outside edge to intensify the color.
I stamped the two largest trees from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent to make the forest on the bottom. I kept the dark trees in the bottom and in the foreground and the lighter trees behind it, using the stamped off trees to make the forest fade into the sky. I cut the panel with the third largest stitched rectangle die and adhered it to an Evening Evergreen mat. I wrapped the layered panel with gold twine, making a bow in the corner and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Versamark ink on Vellum card stock and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut the label with the stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers dies and adhered it to the tree panel with glue dots placed under the embossing. I finished the label with two gold holly leaves and three red rhinestones.
For the inside of the card, I trees from the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent on the bottom corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
So after playing with the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance stamp set for these last three cards, I feel like I’m starting to make a dent in my Christmas card list. And I’m really happy with how these cards came out! This is a great stamp set for making Christmas cards!
