Good Morning! Yesterday was World Card Making Day and the Inkin’ Krew had a special Facebook event to celebrate. Several members from out team went live throughout the day making cards, many with Christmas cards so it was full of wonderful inspiration, and I have filled up my shopping list again! Anyway, my card was a Christmas card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees bundle and Whimsy and Wonder specialty designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel so you can view it there if you didn’t get to join the Facebook Event group:
I stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees cling stamp set in Mossy Meadow on Thick Basic White card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die. I embossed a panel of Basic White with the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat. Note that this is one of the embossing folders that shrinks the paper a little, so cut the panel about 1/16″ longer before embossing, or emboss a larger panel and cut it down to size after embossing. I adhered the layered embossed panel to a Blushing Bride card front with dimensionals.
I cut a panel of Whimsy and Wonder specialty designer series paper with a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a dark silver foil mat – I love this pack of silver foil!! I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals and adhered the tree to the card front with more dimensionals. I cut another dark silver foil panel with the star from the Christmas Trimmings dies and adhered it to the tree top with a glue dot and decorated the tree with 2021-2023 In color jewels.
I stamped the Joy sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on Mint Macaron and trimmed the end with a fishtail from the Banners Pick A Punch. I tucked it under the tree, adhering it with glue dots and finished it with a pink jewel. I made a bow with the Blushing Bride ribbon and adhered it under the tree with glue dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees stamp set in stamped off Mossy Meadow and stamped the decorations over the tree in Polished Pink. I stamped the sentiment in Polished Pink next to the tree and trimmed the bottom of the panel with Whimsy and Wonder DSP. I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees bundle and the Whimsy and Wonder specialty designer series paper are absolutely beautiful! The colors are so fresh and fun, and every card is gorgeous!
Join me for a Facebook Live this Afternoon!
I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET this afternoon to make a card with the Love of Leaves stamp set and the Stitched Leaves dies. Look forward to seeing you then!
