Today I’m sharing one of the cards we made at my Stamp Club’s December virtual gathering. We used the In the Pines stamp set, the Banners Pick a Punch, Watercolor Paper, and a Stampin’ Spritzer to create this simple holiday card.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Garden Green card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper layer cut to 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″
  • Garden Green CS strip cut to 4″ x 1″
  • Whisper White CS strip cut to 4″ x 3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the In the Pines stamp set:

  • sentiment in Garden Green ink onto the Whisper White CS strip
  • spritzed the watercolor paper layer with water, then stamped the tree in Garden Green ink three times onto the wet layer, then set aside and allowed to dry completely

Cut using the Banners Pick a Punch:

  • the left end of the two CS strips

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • fully dry watercolor layer adhered onto the front of the card base using Stampin’ Seal+
  • sentiment strip glued onto the Garden Green CS strip
  • Garden Green CS strip glued onto the front of the card, then any excess trimmed away using Paper Snips
  • 3 Adhesive-Backed Snowflake Sequins applied onto the watercolor layer using my Take Your Pick tool
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
