Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out?  This is a short week for most, so today would be halfway through the work week already.  Tomorrow I’m hoping to spend most of the morning making all my pies and pumpkin cheesecake.  I’ll get my sweet potatoes started and the first step of my stuffing done.

For today’s card I made a collage card for you using a lot of different elements.  I also used a pre-made card base, which I don’t usually use.  I’m always up for trying something different.  Here’s my card.

I started off with a Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for my card base.  It’s larger that my regular cards so I had more room to decorate.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I sponged a little White Craft Ink around the edges using my Stamping Sponge.  I cut some pine boughs out using the Beautiful Boughs Die in Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I cut some berries out using the Flourish Dies in Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I cut the scroll out of a Gold Foil Sheet using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I cut some foliage out of Vellum cardstock using the Frosted Frames Dies.

I arranged and re-arranged the pieces until I liked the way they looked.  Once I had everything how I wanted it, I started adhering the pieces using Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment on top of the collage using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pine boughs from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set on either side of the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes comes with decorated envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
