Today I’m sharing two Christmas cards with you. They are essentially the same, but in different colors. They both use the same Designer Series Paper pack, Glimmer Paper, stamp set, and dies. One is in Merry Merlot and Garden Green, and the other is Cherry Cobbler and Tranquil Tide. 

There are only 6 days left to get the beautiful Dashing Along Designer Series Paper. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see all the details of the special.

I know I’ve talked about this before, but I think it’s worth mentioning again. The new Glimmer Paper is amazing! Not a single piece of glitter comes off! I keep waiting to see it happen, but it hasn’t. If you like the glittery look without the glittery mess, you need to get some of Stampin’ Up!’s glimmer paper. There are 4 colors in the annual catalog, and there’s a pack of 3 colors in the holiday catalog. Click here to see them all.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/2″ (one for each card)
  • Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ (one for each card)
  • Whisper White CS cut to 2-1/4″ x 7/8″ (one for each card)
  • Gold Foil Sheet cut to 1-16″ x 1-1/2″ (one for each card)

Stamped with the Merry Christmas To All stamp set:

  • sentiment Tranquil Tide ink onto one of the 2-1/4″ x 7/8″ Whisper White CS pieces
  • sentiment Merry Merlot ink onto the other 2-1/4″ x 7/8″ Whisper White CS piece

Die cut using the Detailed Baubles Thinlits:

  • one ornament from Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper
  • one ornament from Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper
  • NOTE: Keep all the die cut little pieces for tomorrow’s card!

Die cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlits:

  • 1 bow from a scrap of Gold Foil Sheet for each card

NOTE: I had no trouble using the thinlits dies using the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. If you do, you should try the Precision Base Plate. But use the PB P only with Thinlits. They have more metal than Framelits. Framelits will warp when used with the PBP.

Cut using the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch:

  • 1 circle from a scrap of Sparkle Glimmer Paper for each card

Assembled each card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • glimmer paper die cut ornament glued onto a 2-1/4″ Sparkle Glimmer Paper circle
  • Sparkle Glimmer circle glued onto the DSP layer
  • 1-16″ Gold Foil strip glued onto the DSP layer, as a hanger for the ornament
  • Gold Foil bow glued over the top of the ornament
  • sentiment glued onto the DSP layer
