Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope Floral Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another Christmas card – a floral card made with the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. So you might think that the Dove of Hope cling stamp set isn’t a floral stamp set, but look closely and you will spot the doves. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I will post an edited version of how I made the card in my YouTube channel later this week so you can view a quickie version.

I started by randomly stamping the doves from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a crumb cake panel and adhered it to a Real Red mat. This gives me a textured background for my flowers like you would get if you embossed it or used designer series paper. I die cut the petals from the Magnolia Memory Dies using Whisper White card stock, I cut two of each petal cluster giving me six total. I gently curled the petals up with my fingers and adhered them together with liquid glue.

I cut two small centers from the Magnolia Memory Dies and adhered them together. I bent the stamens up and adhered it to the center of the Whisper White flower. I cut two large flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies from Real Red card stock and three large leaves from the Magnolia Memory Dies from Mossy Meadow card stock. I cut a label using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from Crumb Cake card stock and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Real Red ink in the lower left corner. I adhered a Mossy Meadow die cut leaf sprig from the Detailed Dove Dies to the label.

I popped the label to the stamped panel with dimensionals. I adhered the leaves and Real Red flowers with liquid glue and popped the large Magnolia Memory Dies Whisper White flower on with dimensionals. I made a bow with Real Red braided twine and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the flowers with resin dots. I popped the finished panel on the front of a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped a dove in the upper corner and adhered a die cut sprig under the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love rustic Christmas cards with Crumb Cake card card stock! They have such a natural homespun feel. And I love floral Christmas cards because they’re different, but express the joy of the holiday. And I’m so glad to be able to use the pretty flower from the Magnolia Memory Dies! Have a great week!!

Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek of a beautiful new bundle from the new Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog. It’s called the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope Bundle and it comes with the Dove of Hope cling stamp set and the Detailed Dove Dies. This bundle will be available next week on Aug 4 – YAY!!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the Peace on Earth sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Pacific Point ink on a panel of the new Snowflake Splendor designer series paper and adhered the panel to the front of a Pacific Point card base.

I cut out the dove body and two wings from the Detailed Dove Dies from Thick Whisper White card stock and adhered the wings to the body with liquid glue. I cut the small branch from Shaded Spruce card stock and adhered it to the beak with a dot of liquid glue. I adhered the bird to the card front with dimensionals.

I finished off the card front with two small pearls on the branch.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Pacific Point ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped dove in Pool Party ink after stamping off, and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Snowflake Splendor DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

This was another simple Christmas card, but the dove die cut is so elegant and beautiful that it doesn’t need much.
