Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up CAS Christmas Card

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. Happy October and Happy World Card Making Day!! By the time you get this post I’ll have been at work for over an hour. I’m going in super early so I can get my bills done and get home to watch all my team members live videos and make some cards. I’ll be going live at 3pm today right before the break for the Stampin’ Up! Event. I hope you have all registered. You have a couple hours left to get yourself registered. I hope you have also joined our team Facebook page. The link is below if you haven’t joined yet.

Today I have a really quick Christmas card for you. This is another one that you can make a lot of really fast. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Spruced Up CAS 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Spruced Up CAS 2

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered an adhesive sheet to the back of a panel of Real Red Glimmer Paper from the Real Red & White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper. I cut the 2 ornaments out using the Spruced Up Outlines Dies.

On a small panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the 2 ornaments to the panel. I adhered the artwork panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the layered panel to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied 2 small bows using the Gold Simply Elegant Trim. I adhered the bows to the top of the ornaments using Glue Dots. I added a few Festive Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the striped ornament from the Spruced Up stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink next to the sentiment. I stamped the ornament hanger in Tuxedo Black Ink on top of the ornament. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the striped ornament from the Spruced Up stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front and flap. I stamped the ornament holder in Tuxedo Black Ink on top of the ornament.
