Using this sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches website, I decided to use the Winter Wishes stamp set paired with a neutral palette of whisper white, smoky slate and basic black to create a fun little Christmas card.
The small designs work great with the corrugated cardboard paper from Stampin’ UP! The snowflake accents are retired but add that little bit of embellishment.
To start the card, cut a piece of smoky slate paper at in half at 5 1/2 inches and score it at 4 1/4 inches. Using the corner rounder punch, punch the four corners of the card.
Using the piercing mat and tool, as well as the Updated Paper piercing pack, pierce little holes around the right edge of the card. Stamp the pine, acorns and skate images from the Winter Wishes stamp set in basic black archival ink on whisper white paper. Using paper snips, cut them out. Punch three pieces out of the white corrugated paper using the Artisan Label punch.
Cut a 5 inch piece of white jute ribbon and wrap with a 5 1/2 inch piece of white glitter ribbon. Stamp the sled image in the center of the card in smoky slate ink. Stamp the Warm Wishes sentiment in black archival ink over the sled.
Attach the ribbon to the left of the card front using the multipurpose liquid glue. Attach the three cardboard pieces to the ribbon with dimensionals. Attach the stamped images on to the cardboard using dimensionals. Using the fine tip glue pen, apply glue to make berries on the pine, to outline the skate boot, and to the white areas of the pine cones. Sprinkle with dazzling diamonds glitter. Apply sequins as shown in photo.
For the inside of the card, cut a piece of whisper white at 4 inches by 5 1/4 inches. Punch the four corners with the curvy corner trio punch. Stamp a sentiment from the Versatile Christmas stamp set in black archival ink. Stamp the pine branches in the smoky slate ink. Attach to the inside of the card.
