Celebrate the Season!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another great way to maximize your Wrapped in Plaid DSP by making eight cards from one design! Don’t forget about Vellum cardstock, embossing is another great way to add accent to your cards! The Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder has been very popular, especially with the foil sheets, so I decided to try the folder with Vellum. This card design uses very few products, but is sure to be a favorite of the season!

I chose this design from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, first cutting 1” off one end of the DSP (vertically), cutting that in half (½”), and then turning the DSP to cut at 3”. This will give you two pieces at 3” x 5” and two pieces at ½” x 6”:

The base layer is Vellum cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D EF:

For the card front you will also need:

1. The sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the second smallest rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

2. Use the leaf die from the Christmas Layers Dies to cut out two pieces from Shaded Spruce cardstock. I used a the 4mm Holiday Rhinestone Jewels, one in each color, and three of the 4mm Rhinestone Basic Jewels on each branch, on the circle part (or what I referred to as the “berry”).

First adhere the DSP to the embossed Vellum base layer and then you can hide your adhesive behind the DSP when you adhere the Vellum to your Shaded Spruce cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

I centered the die cut branches to the opposite corners, using the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere, and then adhering the sentiment in the middle with dimensionals:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink, and adhere the ½” strip of DSP on the side edge, trimming off the excess:

Can you believe that I made eight of these cards?? The most time consuming part was really cutting out the branch die and adhering the rhinestones. I did find that when I used any of the Christmas Layers Dies, if you use your Precision Base Plate instead of the Standard Cutting Pad, it is much easier to remove the cardstock from the die without tearing the cardstock, in other words, it cuts the cardstock better! On another note, after I made all these cards, I used up ALL of the Holiday Rhinestone Jewels!! For me that’s an accomplishment, I always have embellishments left over!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
