P retty Christmas card using Stampin' Up! products with a hidden message behind the door.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Always Artichoke Cardstock
- 2-1/2" x 4-1/4" from Early Espresso Cardstock

- 2" x 3-3/4" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
- 1-1/4" x 2-1/2" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
Place the Always Artichoke rectangle into the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the card stock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the dry embossed Always Artichoke layer to the front of the Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock card.
Mount the door image from the At Home with You Set on Block E. Ink it up with the Early Espresso Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper piece.
Pick out the door frame framelit and the large rectangle door framelit from the At Home Framelits. Place the stamped door image on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the door frame framelit on top so it is centered over the stamped image. Place the door rectangle framelit inside the other framelit so it is centered over the door portion of the stamped image. IMPORTANT - Make sure the word "Sizzix" and some numbers stamped into the framelit are at the top of the door. This will make sure that the cutting edge is on the correct side so that your door will open properly. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. You should have a door that opens on the right side inside a door frame.
Mount the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from the At Home with You Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Always Artichoke Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the large Very Vanilla rectangle about 1" from the top.
Carefully put pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the back side of the door frame. Use Paper Snips to trim off excess as needed. Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape pieces and adhere the door frame over the stamped vanilla rectangle so that the sentiment is centered side to side and the bottom of vanilla layer is even with the bottom of the door in the frame. Use Paper Snips to trim off excess vanilla cardstock as needed.
Put SNAIL Adhesive on the back of the vanilla rectangle/door frame and adhere to the center of the Early Espresso rectangle.
Adhere the matted door frame to the front of the card in the center.
Mount the potted Christmas tree image from the At Home with You Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Early Espresso Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the smaller Very Vanilla rectangle.
Pick out the matching potted tree framelit from the At Home Framelits. Place the stamped potted tree image on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the potted tree framelit on top so it is centered over the stamped image. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Use the markers to color in the branches and ornaments on the tree.
Use the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to color in the pot and the colored ornaments to give them some sparkle.
Adhere the potted tree image to the left side of the door frame. Be careful not to overlap the door or it will not open properly.
Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere a Boxwood Wreaths Embellishment to the front of the door.
Pick out 4 circle Regals Enamel Shapes and adhere them to the wreath.
