Stampin' Up Christmas Pines, Presents & Pines, Christmas Stockings, Pretty Pines, Merry Tags, Layering Ovals

Another cool, windy, gloomy start for today with a chance of sprinkles here and there!  It's supposed to be this way all week and through the weekend.

My share for today is a Christmas card that I designed using Stampin' Up's Christmas Pines Stamp Set, Presents and Pines Designer Series Paper and Christmas Stockings and Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies and Merry Tags and Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.

Let's take a look:

I am just LOVIN' Stampin' Up's Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper and Emerald Envy Cardstock!!!  The Emerald Envy color is so unique and absolutely gorgeous combined with SU's Presents and Pinecones DSP.  A non-traditional color scheme!

My card base is Emerald Envy Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4".

My card front panel is the Star piece from Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper cut at 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" and adhered to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.  A non-traditional cut as I wanted an extra 1/8" border to show off the Emerald Envy Cardstock.

I die cut two of each of the Pine Branches (Small, Medium & Large) using SU's Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies from Emerald Envy Cardstock and adhered them to my card front panel as shown in the picture above.

Using SU's Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies, I die cut the Noel image from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and adhered the center only of the Noel die cut over my Pine Branches with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.  I left the ends of the Noel die cut free so I could add the smaller bulbs over the ends and adhere it then.

Using SU's Merry Tags Framelits Dies, I die cut Tree Christmas Bulb image from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and the Solid Christmas Bulb from Emerald Envy Cardstock.  I adhered the Cherry Cobbler die cut to the Emerald Envy die cut and to my card in the Pine Branches using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I die cut the smallest Christmas Bulb twice from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and the Caps twice from SU's Silver Foil Sheet.  I adhered the Caps to the Bulbs and slid them over the ends of the Noel die cut and adhered them down with a Stampin' Dimensional.  Then, I adhered the ends of the Noel die cut down using Mono Multi Purpose Glue to keep the small Christmas Bulbs from falling off.

For the inside of my card:
Using SU's Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, I die cut a Scalloped Oval from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and an Oval from Delightful Dijon Cardstock.  I adhered the Delightful Dijon Oval to the Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Oval and to the inside of my card with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I stamped my sentiment from SU's Christmas Pines in Emerald Envy Ink. 

I purchased some Iced Rhinestones (Retired) from SU's Clearance Rack; but, I see they are gone now.  You have to be quick when it comes to the Clearance Rack.  I adhered two of the largest Iced Rhinestones to the center of the smallest Christmas Bulbs.

And, of course, another of my FAVE's, Enamel Shapes!!!  I adhered the Silver Circle and Star Shapes to the Tree Christmas Bulb.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
