Bright Baubles, Snowman Season, Christmas Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I have been having some issues with Blogger tonight and I can't get the photo to load. It's not just today's photo because I tried to add one from yesterday and it created the same problem, no image.  I found the original card here. I pretty much copied it as it was except for the background. I have no idea what the issue is. It's not my computer because I tried this on two different computers.

I will describe how the card was made though.  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Shaded Spruce card stock. I cut the card stock in half on the 8-1/2" side. So after it was cut it measured 4-1/4" x 11".  I folded it in half. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Crumb Cake card stock and taped it to the front of the card.  Then I cut a 4" x -5-1/4"piece of card stock that was textured with a snowflake embossing folder. I glued that to the Crumb Cake piece.

I die cut the tree from the "Bright Baubles" set. I did use double sided sticky sheet so I could make this into a sticker because I hate gluing pieces like this.  I cut the piece using Early Espresso ink. Then I cut the piece again using Shaded Spruce. I also used the sticky sheet on that too.  There's an outline bulb piece and I cut one using Basic White card stock.   I also slipped the top part of the die in the Big Shot to cut a Daffodil Delight star. I did not use the double sided sheet for that, I just added a dot of glue.

When I removed the pieces from the Early Espresso frame, I threw them in the garbage. When I removed the pieces from the Shaded Spruce tree, I threw them in the garbage. I had to go digging for them. UGH.   LOL

I set the Early Espresso frame onto the Basic White bulb shape. Then I added the Shaded Spruce pieces to the tree and the star on top.  I also used my Wink of Stella pen on the star and tree. It just needed some shimmer.

The bulb was set in place on the card using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Snowman Season" set and were stamped using Shaded Spruce ink. I die cut them using a Stitched Rectangle die for the words. I set them in place using Dimensionals.

I tied a green ribbon to the top of the bulb and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock on the inside of the card and the card was done.

This is a really pretty card and I'm sorry the image won't open on here. I will be looking into this further.  

Blogger seems to be working now. I did leave the blank photo on here not only to show you what I had to deal with yesterday but also there's no way to remove it.  I guess they are not done fixing their issues yet.  Thank you for hanging in there!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and for your patience and understanding,
