Bottled Happiness Christmas Cheer
S imple Christmas card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Mossy Meadow Cardstock
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" from Basic White Cardstock
- 2-1/2" x 3-7/8" of white and green leaf stems and red berries on mottled green background design from Boughs Of Holly 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper
- 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" from Basic White Cardstock
- 2-1/4" square from Basic White Cardstock
Insert the 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" white rectangle into the Gingham Embossing Folder. Use the line printed on the front flap of the folder to make sure it is lined up straight. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on the platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and run through the machine.
Adhere the strip of Boughs Of Holly Designer Paper across the center of the dry embossed, vertical white rectangle so it is about 1" from the top.
Adhere the dry embossed white rectangle with designer paper attached to the center of the Mossy Meadow rectangle and then to the front of the Cherry Cobbler card.
Pick out the rectangle die that cuts out a 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" stitched rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Put it on top of the 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" white rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine.
As you are ready to stamp using the Bottled Happiness Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the smaller glass bottle image from the Bottled Happiness Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the vertical white rectangle cut out as close to the bottom edge as possible.
Mount the single leaf stem image from the Bottled Happiness Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Mossy Meadow Ink Pad. Stamp it on the vertical white rectangle a few times so the stems are inside the mouth of the bottle. Stamp some of the images without re-inking.
Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the front of the card so it is centered side to side and the top is about 3/4" from the top of the card.
Mount the "sending cheer" sentiment from the Bottled Happiness Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the remaining white square.
Pick out the square die that cuts out a 1-1/16" stitched square from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Put it on top of the stamped sentiment square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sentiment is centered in the die and the die forms a diamond. Run through the machine.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment diamond cut out to the front of the card as shown so it overlaps the lower right corner of the vase rectangle.
Gently squeeze the Real Red enamel from the Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics to add some berries to the leaf stems in the vase. Set aside to dry flat.
