Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is starting out fun. Mine is for sure. I’m so happy to be here in Blue Ridge Georgia with my stamping friends. The place we’re staying in is absolutely gorgeous out in the wilderness. The craft room is just wonderful. I’d love to have something like this at home, I’d be in heaven.
One of the best parts of this retreat, other than the company and crafting of course, is that I don’t have to do a thing for a couple days. No cleaning, cooking or driving anyone around YAY!!! James is doing it all for us and he is an amazing cook. Here’s our first meal here ending with an amazing dessert.
Today’s card is another card we made last weekend at our quarterly in per team meeting. This one was designed by our wonderful team leader Amy Koenders. I always love her style. Here’s my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Snow Wonder Cling Stamp Set for my card today. I didn’t have a chance to finish my card at the meeting and I didn’t have the stamp set everyone else used, so I picked my own sentiments from a set that I had.
I started by embossing a small panel of Basic White cardstock using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered embossed panel next to the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal.
On another panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the holly leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink, the pine bough and sprig images in Evening Evergreen Ink, the berry stem image in Soft Suede Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them on the embossed panel adhering them with Glue Dots. I tied a bow using the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon and adhered it on top of the small collage using a Glue Dot. I tucked a few of the Gold Holly Leaves under the bow using Glue Dots. I added a few Gold Gilded Gems to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set on a Basic White panel. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.
To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the holly leaves from the Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
