My share for today is a Christmas Card that I made for my Good Friend and Fellow Demonstrator, Kadie, for her Saddle Up Event that she had in November. The Stampin' Up products that I use are This Christmas and Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas and Shake & Celebrate Stamp Sets, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, Holly Embossing Folder and Cookie Cutter Builder, Triple Banner and Duet Banner Punches.
Let's take a look:
I LOVE Stampin' Up's Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set and the Builder Punch. The reindeer is just Stinkin' cute!!!
My Card Bases are all Old Olive Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2".
My Card Front Panels are all Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and embossed with Stampin' Up's Holly Embossing Folder.
My Banners are all cut at 1-7/8" x 4-1/2" and one end was punched with SU's Triple Banner Punch. I used Designer Series Paper for my Banners from This Christmas and Presents & Pinecones DSP. I adhered the Banners to the Card Front Panels with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, I cut to of the Scribble Circles twice with Old Olive Cardstock and once with Garden Green Cardstock. I adhered all 3 Swirly Circles together to form my wreath with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
I cut about 3" of SU's Real Red 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon. I adhered one end of the Ribbon with Multi Purpose Glue and Tape to the back of my Card Front, slipped the ribbon through the Wreath and adhered the other end of the Ribbon to the back of my Card Front.
I tied a Bow around the Real Red Ribbon with Gold Baker's Twine.
Using SU's Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set, I stamped the Deer on Shimmery White Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink. I used my Aqua Painter to water color the Deer's Head and Ears with Soft Suede Ink and the Antlers with Crumb Cake Ink. I used my Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker to color in the Deer's Inner Ear.
I stamped the Deer's Nose with Real Red Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock and fussy cut the Nose out. I adhered the Nose to the Head with a small piece of Stampin' Dimensionals.
I tied a small Bow with Real Red Baker's Twine and adhered it to the Deer's Head with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
I adhered the Deer in the Center of the wreath with one Stampin' Dimensional and there was no need to adhere the Wreath to the card. The Deer holds it nicely against the card.
Using my 1/8" Handheld Punch, I punched 10 Circles from Gold Glimmer Cardstock and randomly adhered them around the Wreath with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Shake & Celebrate Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I punched the Sentiment out using SU's Duet Banner Punch.
I adhered the Banner to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I punched two Circles from Old Olive Cardstock with my 3/8" Handheld Punch and adhered one to each side of the Sentiment with Mono Multi Purpose Gue.
I punched two more Circles from Gold Glimmer Cardstock with my 1/8" Handheld Punch and adhered them on top of the Old Olive Circles with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Below are some more picture's of the same card only I used different Designer Series Paper's for the Large Banners. Some of the Be Merry! Banners are in Whisper White and some are in Very Vanilla depending on what DSP I used for the Large Banner.
