Iconic Christmas Tree Card

I’m having a little fun with Stampin’ Up!’s Iconic Christmas stamp set this morning and decided it would look great on a 6″ x 6″ card base.  The larger card required a custom envelope – that’s when I LOVE our handy dandy Envelope Punch Board.  One piece of Designer Series Paper and a little adhesive and you have an awesome custom envelope that coordinates perfectly with the card!

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-7/8″ x 5-7/8″ (2 pieces)
  • Be Merry Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″

Stamped with the Iconic Christmas stamp set:

  • outlines of tree decorations in Basic Black ink
  • filled in decorations in Cherry Cobbler ink
  • filled in decorations in Garden Green ink
  • sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Ornamental Christmas Framelits Dies:

  • tree shape
  • sentiment with the tag die

Punched using the Cat Punch:

  • cat from a scrap of Soft Suede CS

Stamped using the Spooky Cat stamp set:

  • cat face in Basic Black ink onto the punched cat

Colored using the Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • drew cat’s collar in Cherry Cobbler

Assembled the card:

  • Whisper White layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • DSP layer glued onto the Whisper White layer
  • tree glued onto the DSP layer
  • cat adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • ran a piece of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine through the hole in the tag, then glued the tag to the card front
  • glued the other Whisper White CS piece to the inside of the card base

Crafted the envelope with the Envelope Punch Board:

  • Be Merry DSP cut to 9-5/8″ x 9-5/8″
  • punched and scored at 4-3/4″
  • folded in the side flaps

  1. So fun! That tree must have taken forever! Love your card.

    • Thanks, Brian! No, it didn’t take much time at all. It was all done in 3 stamps: 1) one stamp for all the little black outlines, 2) one stamp for all the red coloring, 3) one stamp for all the green coloring. Then cutting it out with the Framelits die took just a couple seconds. Boom, done!
