Stampin’ Up! Warm and Toasty Cool Yule

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your weekend started off?  I’m working today, but I have off tomorrow.  I’m not sure what we are doing tomorrow, if anything.

I’m on a roll with Christmas cards now.  I need to get 50 done by the beginning of December.  I figured as long as I try to get 3-5 done a week I should be good.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #468.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which I made into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch, to the left side using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the adorable deer image from the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set above the deer in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the top of a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and embossed the panel using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.  I adhered the artwork to the tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added a piece of the Gold Metallic Trim, form the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, to the top of the tag and frayed it.  I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the deer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

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