Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

Hello and Happy Tuesday! The Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set has been a favorite for a couple of years with the coordinating Pine Tree Punch and wonderful sentiments. And it has a cute plaid Christmas tree, so I had to combine it with the pretty Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper before the end of the month. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Garden Green Christmas tree Peaceful Prints designer series paper to the left side of a Basic Black Mat. I adhered a panel of the Real Red snowflake DSP to the right side. I wrapped a length of the black and white gingham ribbon around the seam, securing it in the back and adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base with dimeensionals.

I stamped two of the plaid Christmas Trees from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Garden Green on Basic White and punched them out with the Pine Tree punch. I stamped the tree again in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Garden Green card stock and punched it out with the Pine Tree punch. I cut the little star from the Christmas Trimmings dies from Bumblebee card stock and adhered it to the top with a glue dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Real Red on the bottom of a Basic White panel and cut it out with the third largest Scalloped Contours die. I adhered the light plaid Christmas Trees with liquid glue and the dark tree with dimensionals. I decorated the tree with Matte Decorative dots. I tied a knot in another short length of gingham ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot before adhering the scalloped panel to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel and stamped the plaid tree in Garden Green in the bottom corner. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of Garden Green Christmas Tree paper from the Peaceful Prints DSP and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Doesn’t the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set plaid Christmas tree look cute with the Peaceful Prints DSP? Lots of plaids in Red and Green with touches of black make a simple, cute little rustic Christmas Card. And the pretty Peaceful Prints designer series paper is only available through the end of Sale A Bration!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer Rustic Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I have a rustic Christmas Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer bundle and the Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper. And I used them to make a fun fold card called a Joy Fold card during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. You can find the supplies I used 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

The Joy Fold card is like a double card with a smaller card on top of a regular size card. It’s great because it provides a lot of surfaces for decorating with pretty designer series papers, die cuts, punch outs and stamped designs.

I adhered the Garden Green tree print from the Peaceful Prints DSP to the inside of the inside large card and the Sahara Sand small deer print to the inside flap. I traced the back of the right facing deer and used it as a guide to punch out the deer from the Peaceful Prints DSP using the deer punch from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer bundle. I adhered the deer to the inside of the large flap. I adhered the Garden Green snowflake panel to the outside of the large card flap. I adhered the Real Red plaid snowflake Peaceful Prints DSP to the outside front of the small card and the diagonal stripe to the inside.

I cut the second largest octagon die from the Hippo and Friends die from Basic White and embossed it with the snowflakes from the Wintry 3D embossing folder. I punched the left facing prancing deer from the Peaceful Prints DSP along with another Deer from Basie White and adhered them together. I trimmed the end of the Real Red strip with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I adhered the banner to the embossed panel with Glue Dots and adhered the deer with Dimensionals.

I adhered the small card to the inside of the large card using Tear & Tape. I stamped the deer from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer photopolymer stamp set in Sahara Sand ink in the lower corner of the Basic White pane. I stamped the medium trees in Garden Green and the sentiment in Real Red. I adhered the panel to the inside of the small card. I used the small circle dies from the Gingerbread dies to cut out a snowflake from the Peaceful Prints DSP and adhered it to a Real Red die cut circle and adhered it to the large card front with dimensionals. This is to tuck the front flap in and is purely optional. I finished the card with a gingham bow and red matte dots.

The Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer stamp bundle has so many sweet deer and woodland images and the punch is perfect. It coordinates perfectly with the Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper that you can choose for free with a $50 purchase for a rustic Christmas look.
