Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Are you all ready to tackle another week?  I’ve got a busy one ahead with the end of the month and the 1st of the month.  I’ll also be working at the dog bakery this week, so not much free time for me.

For today’s card I used some of the beautiful Holiday Designer Series Paper that will be on sale starting October 1st for 15% off.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a thin strip of Garden Green cardstock on the edge of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I didn’t have a rectangle the size I needed, so I made one to fit.  I cut the sentiment out part way using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and cut partway through.  I moved the die to the size I wanted, matching up the stitches, turned the panel around and cut partway through again.  I adhered the sentiment, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, to a frame which I had cut using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from a panel of Brushed Metallic cardstock.  I adhered the framed sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 of the small boughs from a panel of Garden Green cardstock using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhered them to the sentiment using Glue Dots.  From scraps of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede cardstock, I cut the pinecone from the Beautiful Boughs Dies and adhered it to the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Wrapped In Christmas stamp set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Toile Tidings DSP on either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Toil Tidings DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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!!

  1. Great use of this DSP. I thought for sure it was going to be a fun-fold, but that’s Friday 🙂 I know you work at the dog bakery, but have you ever said what your main job is…besides making great cards?!


    • Thank you so much Karen 🙂 My main job is working at Ace Hardware in the office doing accounting work. I’m also in charge of all the cashiers at the same store and work weekends at the register. Dog bakery is a side job I was hired for because of my baking background. I have 3 jobs and LOVE all 3 of them, of course card making is my absolute favorite of all.


  2. I don’t know how you get it all done, with 2 “outside the home” jobs! You are Ms. Multitalented! I’m like Karen—I thought this was going to be a fun fold when I first looked at it but it’s pretty as is. I love the gold touches with that pretty DSP. TFS.


    • Thank you so much Susan 🙂 Karen thought it was a fun fold too. That’s only Friday’s for me 😉 My mom always told me there are not enough hours in the day for me. I like to keep every minute filled up.
