Plaid Stitched Leaf

One of the card’s in today’s to-go card class features a Plaid Stitched Leaf.  I’m loving the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  Though the name implies Christmas, the wide array of colors makes it perfect for a variety of occasions.  The colors selected from the plaid design for the class card features Cinnamon Cider and Mango Melody.  The plaid stitched leaf pulls the design together.  With the many plaid designs, you have a range of color selections to use.

Plaid Tidings Leaf

Project Materials:
  • Cinnamon Cider Cardstock (4-1/4” x 11”, score at 5-1/2” and fold for card base)
  • Whisper White Cardstock (2 pcs: 4” x 5-1/4”; ½” x 3” for banner label)
  • Mango Melody Cardstock (5” x 3-3/4”)
  • Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (3” x 3”)
  • Banner Year Stamp Set
  • Cinnamon Cider Classic Ink Pad
  • Pick A Banner Punch
  • Cinnamon Cider ¼” In Color Ribbon (3-1/4”)
  • Stitched Leaves Dies
Directions:
  1. Adhere a piece of the 4” x 5-1/4” Whisper White cardstock to the Cinnamon Cider card base.
  2. Using the large stitched leaf die (and the center of the leaf); cut a stitched leaf on the upper portion of the Mango Melody cardstock.
  3. Add the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper piece to the back of the Mango Melody so that it’s framed by the leaf cutout. Adhere to the Whisper White layer on the card base.
  4. Using the banner punch, create a banner label using the strip of Whisper White cardstock.
  5. Stamp the “with a grateful heart” sentiment from the Banner Year Stamp Set onto the banner label using the Cinnamon Cider Classic Ink Pad.
  6. Add the Cinnamon Cider ribbon to the card front centered in the area below the leaf cutout. Attach the sentiment banner atop the ribbon using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. For the card interior, add the stitched leaf to the Whisper White cardstock.

Change the plaid pattern, the base colors and the leaf die used and you’ll have a variety of cards!  It’s easy to quickly create a card set for gifting (or keeping for yourself to use).

Arrange A Wreath Merry Christmas

Have you started making your holiday cards? If not, you’ll want to consider the Arrange A Wreath Merry Christmas card I’m sharing. It’s one of the holiday card designs that I’ll be using as Christmas approaches.  The design is an Arrange A Wreath Merry Christmas card and is from my Guest Stamper presentation for the Luv 2 Stamp team.  In previous posts, I provided you with other ideas for using this versatile stamp set and die bundle.  The Arrange A Wreath Merry Christmas card is one of my favorite projects using the bundle. The Merry Merlot and Brushed Metallic cardstocks along with the Gold Cards & Envelopes create an elegant card.  

Arrange A Wreath Merry Christmas

Card Details:
  • With Arrange A Wreath dies, cut 2 leaf dies from the gold Brushed Metallic cardstock and one twig die from the Merry Merlot cardstock.
  • Using the largest flower die (6 petal flower); cut 6 flowers from the Merry Merlot cardstock.
  • Spritz the Merry Merlot flowers and twig wreath with the Champagne Mist.  (Does not show in photo but the spritzing adds a special glimmer touch!) After drying, layer two of the flowers together using a glue dot to hold the layers (creating 3 poinsettia flowers).
  • Next, stamp 5 leaves using Old Olive Classic Ink Pad onto Old Olive cardstock and cut with the coordinating die.
  • Create a 3 layer wreath:
    • Attach the Merry Merlot twig wreath atop one of the gold leaf wreaths taking note to offset the twigs with the leaves. TIP: use small dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the circle line of the wreath to adhere the wreath.
    • Next, add the adhesive to the back of the remaining gold leaf wreath and layer it atop the Merry Merlot wreath.  AGAIN – offset the placement so the leaves aren’t lined up with one another.
    • Add Mini Stampin’ Dimensions to the back of the wreath and add to the top portion of the card base.
  • Attach leaves to the poinsettia flowers using glue dots. Arrange flowers and add to the wreath with glue dots.
  • Finish the flowers by adding Gold Glimmer Enamel Dots to the center of each flower.
  • Use the Detailed Trio Punch to punch the design on each end of the Merry Merlot cardstock for the sentiment label.
  • Next, stamp “Merry Christmas” using Merry Merlot onto a strip of Very Vanilla. Then, attach to the Merry Merlot strip and add to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you want to create a special card, look at the Arrange A Wreath bundle for lots of possibilities.  I’ve been cutting additional wreaths to use for creating more Merry Christmas cards.  So when the time arrives to start mailing my holiday cards, I can quickly assemble.  And best of all, using the beautiful Gold Cards and Envelopes saves lots of time!
