Sending you Happiest Christmas Wishes

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a classic, yet elegant, Christmas card featuring the Wrapped in Plaid DSP with the Dashing Deer stamp set and the coordinating Detailed Deer dies! The inspiration for this card really is maximizing products you may already have and combining them with a few products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. The Dashing Deer stamp set and coordinating dies are a carryover from the 2018 Holiday Catalog and is one of my favorites! This easy to replicate card is perfect with the Wrapped in Plaid DSP by simply swapping out the colored cardstock if you want!

For this card, I chose this design from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP and used one of my favorite cuts, one piece at ¾” x 6”, one piece at 4” x 5 ¼”, and one piece at 2” x 5 ¼”. The 4” x 5 ¼” piece will be your base layer:

For the rest of the card front you will need:

1. A 5” strip of the Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon.

2. Use the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock.

3. Use the second largest scalloped circle die from the Layering Circles Dies to cut a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. This will layer under the Night of Navy cardstock circle.

4. Stamp the large flourishing deer stamp on Crumb Cake cardstock in Golden Glitz Metallic ink, use your Heat Tool to dry the ink, and then cut out with the coordinating die.

5. Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the smallest layering Stitched Rectangle Die. Tip-if you are making multiples of this design, it is easier to cut out the Very Vanilla cardstock first with the die, save one of the outline cutouts, and use your Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment. This way you maximize cutting your paper and are still able to get a nice and even stamped image.

I first adhered the layered circles together and then adhered the cutout deer on top with dimensionals:

I adhered the ribbon across the DSP, along the bottom, and adhered the sentiment on top with dimensionals. I then adhered the deer piece to the DSP:

This completed piece is adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I decided to add a little bit more glittery bling by adhering three of the 6mm Gold Glitter Enamel Dots around the deer:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, adhere the ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom and snip off the excess DSP:

This really is a simple, yet elegant, Christmas card! It is very easy to replicate for making multiples of! Since I still have the 2” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP, I am going to use that to decorate the flap of my envelope and one of the smaller deer stamps on the front of the envelope. Pretty cards should have pretty and coordinating envelopes! 😁

All Wrapped Up Christmas Card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a super cute card that is quick and easy to make! This card was inspired by one of the sentiments from Itty Bitty Christmas, which I used for the card front. This is another fun card using just about all of one sheet from the Wrapped in Plaid 6” x 6” DSP to create, which I’ll give you one other way to use part of this DSP at the end of this tutorial.

To start, cut this design from the DSP, ¾” from one side, turn 90 degrees and cut at 4”. This will give you one piece at ¾” x 6”, one piece at 4” x 5 ¼”, and one piece at 2” x 5 ¼”. The 4” x 5 ¼” will be the base layer:

For the card front you will need:

1. Two piece of Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon, long enough to go across the DSP vertically and horizontally.

2. Enough ribbon to create a double bow, if you are not sure how, check out this helpful video here.

3. About 6” of Linen Thread.

4. A 1 ¼” x 1 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

5. Cut a 1 ½” piece of Gold Foil sheet, punch one end with the Detailed Tag Topper Punch, adhere the sentiment piece, trim off excess foil sheet with snips or paper trimmer.

Adhere the ribbon across the DSP like a present:

Tie the Linen Thread thru the tag hole, tie into a knot, and adhere the sentiment to the DSP, laying the thread across the middle of the ribbon:

Adhere the double ribbon with glue dots in the middle of the ribbon pieces, also securing the thread, trim off any extra thread. This completed piece is adhered to a Shaded Spruce cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, and adhere the ¾” strip of DSP across the bottom, trimming off any extra:

Isn’t this a super cute card that is so easy to make?? This is a great way to use up your ribbon!! So, now you see that I did not use the 2” strip of DSP on this card, how would you use it? On your envelope!! I always decorate my envelopes and if you have the Beautiful Layers Dies, then you know that there is a die that will cut the DSP to fit perfectly on the flap of the envelope! Don’t have this die set? You can easily trim the DSP to fit the envelope flap!
