Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I have a card that has a sneak peek of a stamp set and punch that will be coming out in the new Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog. The stamp set is Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set and it comes in a bundle with the coordinating Pine Tree punch at 10% off. You can find the supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I was inspired by the sketch in The Paper Players PP456 Challenge and it worked well for showcasing the different designs in the Stampin’ UP! Wrapped in Plaid 6×6 Designer Series Paper pack.

In the Wrapped in Plaid DSP pack, there is a Christmas tree patterned paper that fits perfectly in the Pine Tree punch. So I started by punching one of these tree and punching two more trees in whisper White cardstock to give it thickness. I adhered the trees together and decorated it with Cherry Cobbler gems and a gold star sequin topped with a foil star. I selected two more of the Wrapped in Plaid papers and punched a tree from each. I cut a panel of Sparkle Glimmer paper using the large circle in the Stitched Shapes dies and adhered the trees to the circle with glue dots.

I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set on a panel of the striped DSP in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I then adhered it to a Whisper White mat.

The background panel is double matted with the Cherry Cobbler Christmas trees DSP background, a Shaded Spruce mat and a Whisper White mat. It is mounted on a Cherry Cobbler card base with snail. I added the striped panel with snail and finally the circle with dimensionals.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Whisper White. I stamped the tree in in the lower right corner with Shaded Spruce ink after stamping off once. Doesn’t it look just like the tree in the DSP? I added a strip of the striped DSP and matted it with Shaded Spruce and Whisper White before adding it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set and Pine Tree punch are perfect for creating Christmas Tree cards. And the beautiful designs with the gold foil touches in the Wrapped in Plaid 6×6 specialty designer series paper coordinates beautifully with the bundle. These are just a few of the wonderful products that will be available in the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog on September 4. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
