Stampin’ Up! CAS Christmas Pines In Dapper Denim

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Pines stamp set with a little of the Color Theory DSP Stack to create a CAS holiday card to share with you today.

My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #289.

The shimmer on my card was inspired by Less is More #330.

I started by stamping the snowflake image from the Colorful Seasons photopolymer stamp set (available June 1) randomly over a Dapper Denim card base in Dapper Denim ink.

Then I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel from the Color Theory DSP Stack.  I sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and I heat embossed.  I adhered the DSP panel to a panel of Silver Foil Sheets and then to the card front with SNAIL.

I cut three snowflakes with the Seasonal Layers Framelits Dies (available June 1) from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the die cut snowflakes to the card front with touches of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added two silver enamel dots from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Dapper Denim and the snowflakes from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Soft Sky ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
