F un Christmas card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Real Red Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" of lines of light green pine boughs on dark green background design from Peaceful Prints 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper, cut so the lines are horizontal on the horizontal rectangle
- 2-1/2" square from Real Red Cardstock
- 1-3/4" x 3-1/4" from Basic White Cardstock
- 3 little holly leaves punched from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock using the Holly Border Punch (you might have them leftover from another project)
Adhere the piece of Peaceful Prints Designer Paper to the Soft Sea Foam rectangle.
Cut a 6" piece of the Real Red 3/8" Mini Ruffled Ribbon.
Lay the ribbonhorizontally across the Soft Sea Foam/designer paper rectangle so it is about 1-1/2" from the bottom edge. Flip the cardstock over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the Soft Sea Foam rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Real Red card.
Pick out the smooth circle die from the Layering Circles Dies that cuts out a smooth circle that is 2-1/8" diameter. Put it on top of the Real Red square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine.
Mount the "Have a holly jolly Christmas" sentiment from the Christmas To Remember Set on Block H. Use the side of the brush tip of the Real Red Marker to ink up only the words "holly jolly." Use the side of the brush tip of the Garden Green Marker to ink up the rest of the words. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink. Stamp in the center of the white rectangle.
Pick out the rounded end label die from the Seasonal Labels Dies that cuts out a label that is 1-3/8" x 2-3/4". Put it on top of the stamped sentiment on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sentiment is centered in the die. Run through the machine.
Adhere the sentiment label cut out to the center of the Real Red circle cut out.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the layered sentiment label/circle cut outs to the front of the card so they are centered over the ribbon and about 1" from the right edge.
If you don't already have some little Soft Sea Foam holly leaves punched out, then slide one long edge of a Soft Sea Foam rectangle into the unlocked Holly Border Punch so the edge of the cardstock hits the raised edge at the bottom of the punching area. Punch.
Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere one of the little holly leaves to the card front so it sticks out from behind the upper right side of the sentiment label punch out.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere two more little holly leaf punch outs to the front of the card so they overlap the first leaf a little on each side.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up three rhinestones from the sheet of Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the sentiment label cut out near the base of the leaves on the upper right side.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the Real Red 3/8" Mini Ruffled Ribbon.
Slide one end of the ribbon under the ribbon already on the card so it is centered between the left of side of the card and the left side of the sentiment label cut out. Tie in place with a half knot. Trim the ends.
