Christmas Classics, Winter Meadow, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have another Christmas card to share with you. It's a very quick and easy card to make. Please read on to see how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Pretty Peacock card stock. I cut off 1-3/4" from the front right edge.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Winter Meadow" 12" x 12" package. It measures 2-3/8" x 5-1/4".  I should have put my DSP on top of the card then I could have seen that it needed to be trimmed a hair shorter on the long sides.  But it's okay, I still like it the way it is. What's nice about a card like this is that when you add the DSP to the front it looks like you've layered it.  So quick and simple, huh? I used tape to affix my DSP.

The words are from the "Christmas Classics" bundle and were stamped using Moody Mauve ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them using the stitched rectangle dies from the "Nested Essentials" set. I used the second largest for the words and the largest for the Pretty Peacock layer behind them. 

I centered the word piece and got it to where I thought it looked best. I held it in place with my left hand while I lightly drew a pencil line on the back with my right hand. This way I would know where to line it up after I added my Dimensionals. I put Dimensionals on the edge of the card front and more on the upper part of the word piece. Looking for my pencil line, I set the piece in place.  As simple as that!

I had bought the fun "Loose Holly Gems & Sequins" pack and glued the pieces in place. It gave the card a little bling and a little bit of life.  

For the inside of the card I used the "Snowflake Sky" embossing folder. I set the Basic White card stock inside and lightly marked on the right and left edges where I wanted the piece to be embossed.  I only embossed that area. I glued the piece inside the card and the card was done.

This was a fun and quick card to make. I really do like this layout. I am thrilled with the look of  layering when it's just a piece of DSP on top of the card.

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