Today’s card combines The Christmas Traditions Punch Box with the In The Woods Framelits Dies and the Softly Falling embossing folder to create a soft and sweet holiday card. The colors are Pool Party and Whisper White, with just a little pop of Real Red on the sentiment, which reads, “May Your Season Be Merry & Bright.”

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pool Party card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Optional: Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Christmas Traditions stamp set:

  • sentiment in Pool Party and Real Red inks onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • NOTE: I colored the different parts of the stamp using Stampin’ Write Markers.

Die cut using the In the Woods Framelit Dies:

  • 2 trees from a scrap of Sparkle Glimmer Paper

Dry Embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF:

  • card front

Punched using the Christmas Traditions Punch:

  • sentiment

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • one tree glued onto the front of the card base
  • second tree adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • shadow drawn onto the bottom tree, around the edge of the top tree, using a Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker
  • sentiment adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • optional: Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Correction: I later realized that I cut the trees with the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies instead of the In the Woods Framelits Dies. They both have a tree and I just forgot which one I used by the time I wrote this blog post. Either one would work great on this card. You can get the set I actually used here: Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies (144679) 20 dies for $39.
