Stampin’ Up Buffalo Check Christmas Pines Holiday Card

Good Friday morning everyone.  I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.  Maybe apple picking, pumpkin picking or a haunted hay ride.  Whatever you plan on doing enjoy.

May card for today uses the Stampin’ Up Christmas Pines Stamp Set and the Buffalo Check Stamp.  I made the Buffalo Check into a plaid again, it gives that warm cozy feeling when you look at it.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check in Merry Merlot Ink.  I used my Basic Black, Old Olive and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers to make the plaid.  One of our wonderful team members did a Facebook Live video explaining how to make the plaid.  You can see Mary Deatherage from Stamps-N- Lingers here explaining how to do it.

I adhered the plaid panel to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the sentiment out with the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies Oval.  Also using my Big Shot I cut out some pine boughs in Old Olive cardstock and some of the decorative pieces in a Champagne Foil Sheet and Silver Glimmer Paper from the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.  I arranged the pieces on the card front, how I thought it would look nice, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I adhered the Stitched oval with the sentiment over the pine boughs using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 3 pine cones from the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies in Soft Suede cardstock and the bow from the same dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered the pine cones using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the bow on top of the pine cones with a Glue Dot.  In the center of the bow I added 1 Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

On the inside Very Vanilla panel I stamped the snowflake image from the Christmas Pines stamp set multiple times, using Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once, to cover the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the center.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once on the envelope front.  I stamped the Buffalo Check in Merry Merlot Ink on the envelope flap.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you enjoyed the card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping.
