I received many beautiful Christmas cards this year, and the one you see at the very top of this post was from my friend, Gail Cobb, who, by the way, is a very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. She used the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Winter Wonderland Specialty paper for her card, and of course I had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it. I used the Year of Cheer DSP, and it is in the 2017-18 Holiday Catalog, which will go away on January 2, 2018. If you do not have any Year of Cheer DSP, well, I know where you can get it!!!
- The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Thick Whisper White, scored at 4 1/4, and the smaller white piece is 4 1/4 x 3.
- The Basic Black layer is 5 3/8 x 4 1/8, and the smaller black piece (under the focal point) is 4 3/8 x 3 1/8.
- The Silver foil layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
- The DSP from Year of Cheer is 4 7/8 x 3 3/4.
- The branches from Christmas Pines and the word Noel is stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black ink. Then I cleaned the stamps with my Stampin' Scrub, and Stampin' Mist. Next I stamped the branch with Versamark over the black and slightly offset the stamp. I covered my Versamarked branch with Silver embossing powder for the card on the left, and Copper embossing powder for the card on the right and used my heat tool to melt the embossing powder. Stunning. Thank you Gail for sharing your idea.
- All the layers are adhered with Tombow Liquid glue (more wiggle room), except for the focal point, which is adhered with SU dimensionals (the best dimensionals around), just sayin'.
- Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
- All done!!!
