Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals Alpine Adventure Holiday Card

Good Tuesday morning everyone.  Hope your week has started out  well.  I can’t believe we’re halfway through October already.  Sometimes time just flies.

For today’s card I used the adorable Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals Stamp Set and made a cute Christmas card.  I absolutely love this little otter image.  Take a look.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the  Stampin’ Up Alpine Adventures Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with Call Me Clover Stampin’ Emboss Powder from the 2018-2020 In-Color Stampin’ Emboss Powder  set and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I adhered a piece of 2018-2020 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the top half of the Whisper White panel using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of  1/4″ Copper Trim around the center of the panel and made a small bow with the same Copper Trim and attached it by the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Otter image from the Postcard Pals Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using my Bronze, Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the largest Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I stamped the Gift Box image from the Alpine Adventure Stamp Set in Real Red Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and colored the bow in with my Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blend Marker and fussy cut it. I adhered the Gift Box, using a Stampin’ Dimensional, on the artwork.  I cut the largest Scalloped Oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies in Real Red cardstock using my Big Shot and adhered the artwork to the scallop oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the snowflakes from the Alpine Adventure stamp set in Real Red Ink, stamping off once, in all 4 corners.  I stamped the sentiment from Alpine Adventure stamp set in Real Red Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped just the Otter from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom left corner of a Medium Whisper White Envelope and colored it in the same way as I did on the card.  I adhered a piece of 2018-2020 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.  Hope you enjoyed my card today and will give it a try.  Thank you for stopping by my blog. Happy Stamping.
