Stampin’ Up Cable Knit Christmas Pines Holiday Card

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Hope your week is going well.

I’ve got a pretty Christmas card for you today.  For today’s card I played along with the sketch for Fab Friday 147.  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see all the wonderful projects and to play along!

Here’s the card I came up with for the challenge.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered a banner made from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and my Banner Triple Punch, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, to the center.

I cut some Pine Boughs in Mossy Meadow cardstock using my Big Shot and the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.  I also cut a couple of Gold Foil pieces out from one of the other dies in the set.  I arranged the Pine Boughs and the Gold Foil pieces the way I thought it would look nice and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and dusted it with my Embossing Buddy so that my Emboss Powder would only stick to the stamped image.  In Versamark Ink I stamped the Noel from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set on the Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I sprinkled it with my Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, making sure the image is covered, then shook off the excess powder.  Using my Heat Tool, I heated the powder and watched it turn Gold.  Using the largest Oval from the Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies, I cut out the embossed image.  I adhered some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the oval and weaved some Gold Metallic Thread around so that it came out all around the oval.  It’s very hard to see in the photo since the thread is so fine.  I adhered the oval to the card front with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base.

On the inside I stamped a Very Vanilla panel with the Pine Boughs from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off once.  Using my Versamark Ink, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in the center and sprinkled it with my Gold Emboss Powder. I heated it with my Heat Tool until it turned gold.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mag using Snail, then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the Pine Boughs from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front edges.  I adhered a piece of Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked the card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!

  1. So pretty – you’ve combined so many of my fave holiday details here – I still love this set and its thinlits, and the cableknit folder is just so cozy. Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
