I’m baaaaaaaack! I apologize for not posting in so long. I’ve had serious internet connectivity issues. But now I’m here to share this lovely Christmas card with you. I used the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set and a Blender Pen to create the images, and the Layering Oval Framelits Dies to cut out the sentiment. I added a little Garden Green & Whisper White Baker’s Twine to add a little somethin’ somethin’.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Garden Green card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Cherry Cobbler CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces)

Stamped with the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set:

  • floral image in Memento Black ink onto the Whisper White CS layer, once at the top, and once at the bottom (flipped)
  • sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • sentiment
  • a scrap of Garden Green CS, slightly larger than the sentiment

Colored using a Blender Pen:

  • poinsettias and berries in Cherry Cobbler ink
  • leaves in Garden Green ink
  • flower centers in Crushed Curry ink

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Cherry Cobbler CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • stamped Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Cherry Cobbler CS layer
  • sentiment glued onto the Garden Green die cut oval
  • Garden Green Baker’s Twine wound around my hand then adhered to the back of the Garden Green CS oval
  • Garden Green CS oval adhered onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • remaining Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
