S imple, classic Christmas card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Paper 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 Mossy Meadow Cardstock
- 2-3/4" square from Very Vanilla Cardstock
- 1-1/4" x 3" from Real Red Cardstock
Lightly spritz the Mossy Meadow rectangle with water and insert into the Seasonal Wreath 3D Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the paper inside on your die cutting and embossing tool and run through the machine. Set aside to dry.
Mount the house in the trees image from the Still Scenes Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Mossy Meadow Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the vanilla square.
Pick out the straight-edged circle die from the Layering Circles Dies that cuts out a circle that is 2-1/8" diameter. Put it on top of the stamped vanilla square on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool so the stamped image is centered. Run through the tool.
If the dry embossed Mossy Meadow rectangle is dry, proceed with the next step.
Tip: You can speed up drying with a Heat Tool if needed.
Adhere the dry embossed Mossy Meadow rectangle to the front of the Very Vanilla Thick card.
Adhere the house in the trees circle cut out to the center of the dry embossed wreath.
Apply a thin layer of glue using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to the house in the trees image on the roof of the house, ground, and pine tree.
Sprinkle on Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter and tap off excess onto a piece of Grid Paper. Return the excess glitter to the container to use again on a future project. Set aside to dry.
Mount the "may the timeless message of Christmas..." sentiment from the Still Scenes Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Mossy Meadow Ink Pad. Stamp it on the Real Red strip so you get the beginning of the sentiment through the word "Christmas."
Use Paper Snips to cut out the words "timeless," "message," "of," and "Christmas" from the stamped sentiment.
Use a Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the word "message" to the card front so it slightly overlaps the top left side of the house in the trees circle cut out and the word "of" so it slightly overlaps the bottom right side of the house in the trees circle cut out.
Use small pieces of Dimensionals to adhere the word "timeless" so it slightly overlaps the word "message" at an angle and the word "Christmas" so it slightly overlaps the word "of" at an angle.
Cut a 3" piece of the 3/8" Linen Ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon 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 lower left side of the house in the trees circle cut out.
