I used the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs stamp set bundle from the upcoming 2019 Holiday Catalog to create a Christmas card to share with you today.
My card design was inspired by the Fusion Sketch.
I started by adhering a panel of Wrapped In Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP (available Sept 4) with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base. Then I stamped the images from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set (available Sept 4) in Soft Suede and Call Me Clover inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock. The Call Me Clover dots were stamped off once and stamped several times without reinking.
I cut the stamped panel with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I trimmed the edges of the die cut even with the card front and then sponged the edges lightly with Call Me Clover ink. I adhered the die cut panel to the card front with SNAIL. I cut a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock with two of the Beautiful Boughs Dies (available Sept 4) and I adhered the die cut boughs with Glue Dots to the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with one of the Beautiful Boughs Dies and then adhered looped Linen Thread to the back of the die cut panel. I adhered the die cut sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front and then added three gold pearls from the Metallic Pearls pack to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment and pine boughs from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then added a strip of Wrapped In Plaid DSP to finish the inside of the card.
