Stampin’ Up! Sweet Christmas Wishes

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Is everyone ready for a long weekend?  I’ll be baking apple and pumpkin pies today and making a pumpkin swirl cheesecake.  I’ll make my homemade cranberry sauce and make sure the turkey is  cleaned and ready for the grill in the morning.  How about all of you, what do you have to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner?

For today’s card I used some DSP and embossing folder and some dies.  Take a look.

My design was inspired by Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #436.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Poppy Parade card front using the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a stitched circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies from a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut a circle a little smaller than the stitched circle using the Layering Circle Dies out of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using a smaller circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I adhered the sentiment to the Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the stitched Crumb Cake circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a candy cane which I cut and put together using the Cup of Cheer Dies.  I cut the base in Very Vanilla and the top in Poppy Parade.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the cup image from the Cup of Christmas stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Christmas stamp set inside the cup in Poppy Parade Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Night Before Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

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