In an earlier post, I showed you one of our cards from the Christmas Card classes, using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set. Today, I have another one using the Lots of Joy stamp set from the Annual Catalog. I originally made this card at a Stamp Across America class at the Stampin’ Up! Convention last summer.
Here’s the fixin’s!
This card is made with the new Whisper White Thick CS as the base. The thick CS is much sturdier than the original Whisper White CS, and is perfect for card bases. There is a layer of Crumb Cake CS, then a layer of Old Olive CS, which has been embossed with the Decorative Dots TIEF.
I’m frugal when it comes to saving card stock, so the Crumb Cake tree on the front is actually punched from the bottom Crumb Cake layer. I do this so much in classes, that my stampers have come to expect it. Before they put their cards together, they now ask “do we need to punch anything from this layer?” LOL You only see an 1/8′ of this layer, so why not use the center that is covered by the next layer?!
Next, a strip of DSP from the Merry Moments pack is adhered across the front about an inch from the bottom of the card.
The plaid tree and greeting from the Lots of Joy set are stamped in Crumb Cake on a scrap of white and punched using the Tree punch and the Label Bracket punch. The tree is layered with the Crumb Cake punched tree, linen thread is adhered to the back, and they are adhered with dimensionals. I added a few gold sequins to give it a little sparkle.
All of the supplies for this project can be purchased by clicking the shopping basket. I’d also love to be your demonstrator, if you don’t have one. And, if you think you’d like to become a demonstrator, I can help with that, too!
Until next time………stay inky, my friends!
