Trucking Along – Tree Farm Holiday Card

The Tree Farm holiday card features the Trucking Along Bundle and the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper.  It is a card design that was inspired by the beautiful designer series paper.  The illusion of a hill is perfect for a couple of tree farm trucks.  And the trucks bringing Christmas trees down the hill in the winter forest is perfect for a fun holiday card.  I’ve included the cut dimensions and an assembly video below so you can recreate the card. You will find both the Trucking Along Bundle and the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper in the Online Exclusives section of my Stampin’ Up! store.

Christmas Wishes Holiday Card

The Christmas Wishes Holiday Card features the Leaves of Holly Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.  It is one of the cards from November’s Holiday Card To-Go Class.  In my monthly Card Class To-Go Kits, all papers are pre-cut, including die cuts or punch shapes, so recipients are able to assemble the cards following the card video instructions.  The kits do not include the stamped images. Typically, I select a bundle or product suite as the focus.  This allows recipients to purchase the featured stamp set or bundle to use for stamping. And of course, substitution with a stamp set already owned can be used.

However for the holiday card class, a variety of bundles were used. It was just too difficult to select one! This required card designs with minimal stamping of sentiments.  Since one of my favorite holiday sets is the Leaves of Holly Bundles, I “had” to include a card featuring the bundle:)  The dies made it easy to create the Christmas Wishes holiday card!  In lieu of stamping the holly leaves, the dies cut the layering pieces for the holly and the holly berries.  By die cutting two cardstock colors, it was easy to achieve shading.  And the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly Bundle could be used or changed to another favorite holiday sentiment.

Project Materials for the Christmas Wishes Holiday Card:
  • Leaves of Holly Bundle 
  • Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper:  5-1/4″ x 4″ layering panel; 6″ x 2-1/2″ for envelope
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score/fold at 4-1/4″ for card base
  • Basic White Cardstock: 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ layering panel; 5-1/4″ x 4″ for interior; scrap for sentiment
  • Old Olive Cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 4″ for holly leaves base
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 4″ for holly leaves overlays
  • Real Red Cardstock use scrap pieces for holly berries
  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock use scrap pieces for holly berries
  • Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Glimmer Specialty Paper – Gold and Evening Evergreen scraps
  • Gold & Vanilla Satin-Edged Ribbon
  • Adhesive Sheets 
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine or Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine 
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals 
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue 
  • Mini Glue Dots
ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

The in-person class was able to use the same bundle.  However, the holly leaves and berries were stamped then die cut.  That’s what’s wonderful with the Leaves of Holly Bundle, you can stamp the images or just die cut cardstock to create a beautiful card.

For the next several weeks, additional holiday projects will be share so be sure to subscribe to my posts. Plus I’ll be posting info on the January Card Kit To-Go soon!  It will feature a new bundle from the new Mini Catalog.

Whimsy & Wonder Merry Christmas

This fun Whimsy & Wonder Merry Christmas card  features the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Even the packages used for embellishing the front are cut from the gorgeous designer series paper.  The non-traditional colors in the paper helps to create a fun, cheerful holiday card.  Of course, ask my granddaughter and she’ll tell you that yes, pink is a Christmas color.  She actually has a pink Christmas tree for her bedroom!  So naturally, it is a must that I use the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Below are photos of the card one with a Polished Pink border and one with a white border.  You’ll have to watch the assembly video to learn the details:)

Card Details:
  • Basic White Thick cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″ for form card base.  Scrap piece to stamp and fussy cut the Merry Christmas sentiment.
  • Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper: Snowflake Design layer 5-1/2″ x 4″; fussy cut 4 presents from the designer paper to use on the card front.
  • 1-1/2″ x 4″ strip of Polished Pink In-Color Shimmer Vellum – Cut the strip using the long, narrow die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.  Attach to the front of the Snowflake Designer Series Paper and snip the overhanging edge before attaching to the card base (I forgot to do this in the assembly video!)
  • Add a Wonderful Snowflake Embellishment over the shimmer vellum, then layer the presents, adding the top present with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp Merry Christmas using Polished Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad and fussy cut around the greeting.  Note: select your favorite Merry Christmas font (I used the Christmas to Remember & the Holly Jolly Wishes Stamp Sets) Attach the greeting using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Don’t forget to embellish the envelope flap with the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper.  It adds the finishing touch! Be sure to register to follow my posts, I’ll be sharing a Whimsy & Wonder gift tag soon.
