Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees bundle set to make a Christmas card. I paired it with the Whimsy & Wonder specialty designer series paper and beautiful Wonderful Snowflakes for a pink and mint snowflake card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
And we have a theme challenge this week and our theme is Snow/Winter:
I embossed a panel of Mint Macaron with the pretty snowflakes in the Wintry 3D embossing folders and adhered it to the right side of the front of a Mint Macaron card base. I adhered a strip of the pretty Whimsy & Wonder specialty DSP to the left side.
I cut a panel of the Whimsy & Wonder specialty designer series paper with the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I wrapped it with Silver Mesh ribbon, adhering it in the back. I adhered the panel to the card front with liquid glue. I adhered a Wonderful Snowflake on top of the ribbon. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees cling stamp set in Versamark ink on a Blushing Bride panel. I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the powder with my heat tool and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die when it cooled.
I cut two snowflakes from Basic White using the small snowflake die from the So Many Snowflakes dies and adhered them to the label with liquid glue. I popped the label on the card front with dimensionals and adhered some rhinestones to the snowflakes and label.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the little bough from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mossy Meadow in the top corner of a Basic White panel. I colored it with Mint Macaron and Flirty Flamingo Stampin Blends. I inked up part of the sentiment stamp from the Frosted Gingerbread photopolymer stamp set in Mossy Meadow and stamped it on the panel. I adhered a strip of Whimsy & Wonder specialty DSP to the side of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Whimsy and Wonder specialty DSP is beautiful and I really love the non-traditional Christmas colors! The Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees stamp set coordinates perfectly and the greenery, ornaments and Christmas tree images give you lots of options for different themed Christmas cards – all of them beautiful!
