Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Christmas Card

The Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy stamp set has such beautiful images and sentiments!  I  used it to create a Christmas card to share with you today.

My card design was loosely inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #410.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder and the 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL, then wrapped a strand of Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Diagonal Stripe Ribbon around the panel and adhered it with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the images from the Beauty & Joy photopolymer stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I cut the image out with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock with the same Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered the Cherry Cobbler die cut with SNAIL, then  the stamped die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.

***Quick Tip:  When you’re stamping the tree images from the Beauty & Joy stamp set, start with the “leafy” image, then the trunk and finally the pot.  That will make sure that everything is lined up correctly when you stamp it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp, set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then punched it out with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch.  I adhered the sentiment circle with SNAIL to a circle cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock with one of the Layering Circles Dies and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added three Cherry  Cobbler Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and the star from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink on a Whisper White card stock panel to finish the inside of the card.
