I used the Stampin’ Up! Gift Wrapped stamp set bundle and the Sprig Punch to create a quick Christmas card to share with you today. I borrowed a little inspiration from the Mini Catalog for my card colors and design.
My card design was loosely inspired by My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 508.
I started by inking the small bow image from the Gift Wrapped photopolymer stamp set in Crumb Cake ink, stamping it on scrap paper and then stamping it across a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. Then I wrapped a strand of Shaded Spruce ribbon from the Wonder Of The Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the panel and secured it with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Crumb Cake card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Then I punched a panel of Just Jade card stock four times with the Sprig Punch and I adhered the punches to the card front with Glue Dots. I cut a panel of Brushed Metallic Card Stock two times with the branch die from the Poinsettia Dies and then adhered the die cut branches to the card front with Glue Dots.
I stamped the sentiment from the Gift Wrapped stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut around it with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I snipped about 1/4″ off the right side of the die cut and then adhered it with Glue Dots to the card front. I stamped the bow image from the Gift Wrapped stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then punched it out with the coordinating Gift Bow Builder Punch. I adhered the bow to the car front with Stampin Dimensionals to finish it.
I stamped the sentiment and bow from the Gift Wrapped stamp set in Crumb Cake and Just Jade inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.
