I used the Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid and Peaceful Boughs stamp sets to create a Christmas card to share with you today. I did a video tutorial for making this card on my Facebook page yesterday and I’ve also uploaded it to my YouTube Channel so you can view it there too!
My card design was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge 350.
The plaid panel on my card also works for CAS on Friday Challenge #191: Plaid
I started by cutting panels from the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP and the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ DSP (both on sale for 15% off during October) with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered both panels to the front of a Soft Suede card base with Stampin’ Seal.
I cut a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock with the branch dies from the Beautiful Boughs Dies and I adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots. I stamped the pinecone images from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock and then cut them out with the coordinating Beautiful Boughs Dies. I adhered the die cut pinecones with Glue Dots and then wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the card front twice and tied a bow.
I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid photopolymer stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut around it with one of the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the die cut oval to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added three Shaded Spruce rhinestones from Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and the pine boughs from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.
