My share for today is my Christmas Cards that I designed for my Great Niece and Nephew. Ya' see, I'm not just a Good Aunt; I'm a Great Aunt. The Stampin' Up products that I used are Candy Cane Lane and Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Papers, Snow Place and Peaceful Pines Stamp Sets, Snow Friends, Perfect Pines and Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies.
Let's take a look:
I think the Kids will really like their Christmas Cards. Who wouldn't with that Darling little Penguin and his Earmuffs sledding on a Candy Cane!!!
I was in a hurry to get my Christmas Cards out this year so I grabbed a Real Red Card Base that I already had made up and sliced it right down the center so that I had two 2-3/4" x 4-1/4" Card Bases.
Using SU's Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, I die cut the Largest die from Dapper Denim Cardstock and adhered it to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Peaceful Pines Stamp Set, I stamped my Tree in Garden Green Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.
Using SU's Perfect Pines Framelits Dies, I die cut out the Tree and adhered it to my Oval with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Snow Place Stamp Set, I stamped the Penguin in Basic Black Archival Ink and the Earmuffs, Bow Candy Cane and Sentiment in Real Red Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.
Using SU's Snow Friends Framelits Dies, I die cut out the Earmuffs, Bow and Candy Cane.
I used SU's Washi Tape Punch (Retired - but you can easily trim out your Sentiment) to punch out my Sentiment. I adhered my Sentiment to the top of my Card Base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I adhered the Candy Cane across the bottom of the Dapper Denim Oval with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using my Stampin' Write Markers, I colored the Penguins Beak with Pumpkin Pie and his Feet with Delightful Dijon.
I assembled my Penguin as shown in the picture above and adhered him onto the Candy Cane with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Using my SU 1/8" Handheld Punch, I punched out a bunch of Circles from scraps of SU's Red Glimmer Paper and adhered them randomly with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using my SU Star Confetti Border Punch, I punched two of the Largest Stars from scraps of SU's Gold Glimmer Paper and adhered them to the tops of the Trees with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
I forgot to take my pictures before I signed their cards. My hand writing is terrible anymore with these arthritic hands.
Using SU's Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, I die cut 2 of Largest Ovals from SU's Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack and 2 of the Second Largest Ovals from Whisper White Cardstock and adhered the to the inside of my Cards as shown in the picture above.
I adhered a strip of SU's Warmth & Cheer Designer Washi Tape to the bottom of each card.
I made my own envelopes on SU's Envelope Punch Board using SU's Candy Cane Lane DSP, the 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" Card Size, 6-3/4" x 6-3/4" Paper Size and my Starting Score Line at 3".
Using SU's Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, I die cut the Third Largest Oval from Whisper White Cardstock and adhered it on the outside of my envelopes.
Using SU's Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies, I die cut the Holly Leaves from Garden Green Cardstock, the Holly Berries from Real Red Cardstock and adhered them to the Oval as shown in the picture above.
Snow Place Stamp Set and Snow Friends Framelits Dies have been one of my FAVE's and that I have used the most.
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
