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

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a quick and simple Christmas card to share with you. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Lost Lagoon. My card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. After scoring my card in half I cut off a piece from the front right side. I cut away 1-1/2".  You can save this piece for layering of your words if they differ from mine.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and I textured 1-5/8" on the right side using the "Snowflake Sky" embossing folder. I glued that piece to the inside of the card.

Next I cut a 2-3/8" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Winter Meadow" 12" x 12" package and taped it to the left side of the card.

The words are from the "Christmas Classics" set and were stamped using Crumb Cake ink. I thought it would have a nice golden look to it without using gold embossing powder. I die cut them using the second largest rectangle die from the "Nested Essentials" set. And the Lost Lagoon layer behind it was cut using the largest stitched rectangle in that set. I taped the two layers together and then the piece was set in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. I put two Dimensionals on the edge of the piece that was cut off and on the left side of the word layers, and one in the middle. This way there's no guessing where to put the Dimensionals. You get it right every time! And the card is done. You can add some embellishments if you want but I thought keeping without any gives it a more peaceful looking card.

This was a super easy and quick card to make. You can make 10 cards from one 12" x 12" piece of DSP. I may give this one a second glance when it comes to making our annual card!

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