I used the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree stamp set and Tree Trimming Dies to create a Christmas card to share with you today. I also did a video tutorial for this card and you can see it on my YouTube channel here.
I started by adhering two panels of Lights A Glow Specialty DSP to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Then I wrapped a length of Gold 3/8″ Simmer Ribbon around the card front and adhered it in the center (hidden under the focal panel) with Stampin’ Seal. I tied a small length of Gold Shimmer Ribbon around one side of the ribbon in a knot.
I cut a panel of Festive Foils Specialty Paper with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies and then adhered the die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front. I stamped the tree images from the Trimming The Tree photopolymer stamp set in Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler inks on a panel of Basic White card stock. I cut the tree out with the coordinating Tree Trimming Dies (available through September 30 while supplies last) and then cut a panel of Gold Foil Sheets with the Tree Trimming Dies. I adhered the die cuts with Stampin’ Seal and Mini Glue Dots to the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming The Tree stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Soft Succulent card stock, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders and then heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with one of the Tree Trimming Dies and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Trimming The Tree stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then added a strip of Lights Aglow DSP to finish the inside of the card.
