Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which I have put a “pause” on the snowflakes and will show you how to make this super cute and easy rustic themed Christmas card! If not for one item, all of these products came from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! The Snow Front stamp set is one of my all-time favorite scenery stamp sets and when you combine it with the Buffalo Check background stamp and the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder, you will have this adorable card for Christmas!
For the base layer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check background stamp in Real Red ink, and for the lines, I used my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker with a ruler:
For the card front, you will need:
1. Cut a 2” x 5 ¼” piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock and emboss with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.
2. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the snowman in Seaside Spray ink, the second smallest pine tree in Shaded Spruce ink, and the cabin in Sahara Sand ink, using the Gray Granite Stampin’ Write Marker to color the smoke from the chimney. The snowman and pine tree are die-cut out with the smallest Layering Squares Die and the cabin is die-cut out with the second smallest Layering Squares Die.
3. From the gold Brushed Metallic cardstock, die-cut out two pieces using the fourth smallest and one using the fifth smallest scalloped Layering Squares Dies. These will be layered under the stamped images on Very Vanilla cardstock.
4. Enough of the Vanilla Ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack to tie around the Buffalo Check base layer into a knot.
I first adhered the embossed Shaded Spruce cardstock across the middle of the buffalo check base layer, adhered the layered square pieces (as evenly as possible) with dimensionals, and tied the vanilla ribbon into a knot. This completed piece is adhered to a Shaded Spruce cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink, the cabin in the corner (same way as the card front), and the pine tree in the other corner (first, second, and third generation stamping):
How cute is this card?? How easy was this to make?? While there are so many beautiful and fun products in the August-December Mini Catalog, don’t forget about some of these favorites from the Annual Catalog! If you don’t have the Brushed Metallic cardstock (you really should!), you can substitute Gold Foil or even the new Brass Foil Sheets!
