C lean and simple 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 Basic White Cardstock
- 2-1/4" x 3-9/16" of diagonal red, white, and brown stripes design from Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper
- 1-3/4" square of Basic White Cardstock
Pick out the stitched rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies that cuts out a rectangle that is 1-13/16" x 3-1/8". Put it on top of the diagonal stripes designer paper rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered. Run through the machine. KEEP BOTH PIECES! You are using the frame rectangle cut out on this card and will use the stitched rectangle cut out on another card.
As you are ready to stamp using the Frosted Gingerbread Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
WITHOUT ADHERING, lay the diagonal stripes designer paper frame on the vertical white rectangle so it is centered side to side and about 5/8" from the top.
Mount the "sending you peppermint kisses" sentiment on Block B. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp it inside the designer paper frame about 1/2" from the top.
Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the diagonal stripes designer paper frame in place on the stamped white rectangle.
Adhere the white rectangle to the front of the Real Red card.
Mount the set of 3 different peppermint candies image from the Frosted Gingerbread Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the small white square.
Pick out the matching, set of three peppermint candies die from the Gingerbread Dies. Put it on top of the stamped peppermints on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the candies are centered in the die. Run through the machine.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the two larger peppermint candy cut outs to the front of the card as shown. Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the smaller candy to the card front as shown.
Cut a 3" piece of the Real Red 1/8" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the front of the card on the lower right corner of the designer paper frame.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 3 rhinestones from a sheet of Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere one to the center of the large peppermint candy cut out and the other two inside the frame around the other candy cut outs as shown.
