I used the Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure stamp set bundle and the Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes to create a fun Christmas card to share with you today. I borrowed a little inspiration from the Holiday Catalog for this card too. 🙂
My card design is very loosely inspired by Freshly Made Sketches 354.
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Alpine Adventure photopolymer stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on a panel of Festive Farmhouse DSP. Then I added the snowflake images in Gray Granite ink randomly over the panel. I adhered the stamped panel to the front of a Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes card base with SNAIL.
I stamped the skis, sled and wreath images from the Alpine Adventure stamp set in Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Basic Gray, Garden Green and Poppy Parade inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the “buckle” part (I’m sure that there is a real term for it…but I have no idea what it is!!) of the skis in VersaMark ink, sprinkled them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.
I cut the stamped images out with the coordinating Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies and then cut panels of Poppy Parade and Wood Textures DSP with the sled and bow dies and I adhered the pieces to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added one of the Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes next to the sentiment to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment, sled and snowflake images from the Alpine Adventure stamp set in Poppy Parade, Early Espresso, Gray Granite and Balmy Blue inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.
