Christmas Classics, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! 2023

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a Christmas card to share with you. I found it on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. Please read on to see how I made this card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Cherry Cobbler for the layer. Before taping it on top of the card base I cut out several berries using the die from the matching "Christmas Classics" bundle. Some of the berries are double, stuck together so I did trim a few of them for the smaller berries on the main die. I had cut out 8 sets and I figured I would just save any extra. I pop my extras in little baggies and keep them inside the stamp sets. You never know when you'll use them.

Next I textured a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock. I textured it using the new "Snowflake Sky" embossing folder. I glued that to the Cherry Cobbler piece and that piece was then taped to the Basic White card base.

Then I took a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock and die cut the holly word piece. I die cut two leafy branch pieces using gold foil paper.  

The words are from the same "Christmas Classics" stamp set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using Cherry Cobbler ink. I die cut them out using the matching die from the bundle. I taped them to the Shaded Spruce piece. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was centered on the card. I just eyed it.

I added a little bit of glue to the berries on the Shaded Spruce piece and set them in place. A few of them needed to be trimmed down and I used the double ones for that. Then I glued in the gold foil leafy branches.  

For a final touch I used my Wink of Stella pen and added some sparkle on the berries.

This was a fun and quick card to make. It didn't take long and I could see myself making these for our holiday cards this year.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Christmas Card,
