Something Old – Something New Christmas

What is creativity?  For this beautiful Christmas card, the author took Stampin’ Up retired stamp set, Endless Wishes and put it together in the most unique way!   My friend, Pat showed me her sample and I created this card from it.   I love the look!   Here’s what I did….

  • Mellow Moss Ink pad #133645
  • Mellow Moss Card stock #133676

  • Gold Glimmer Paper #133719

Place the stamps on a clear block.  It is easiest to align by starting at the bottom of the tree

Stamp a few stars in Hello Honey on the tree   The stars from To You and Yours stamp set are there perfect size.  This stamp set is found on page 4 of the mini catalog and coordinates with the Shaker Card Kit #139819

For the tree trunk, I found a stamp set i had not completely put together and cut with my rubber craft scissors a long rectangular piece of extra rubber and inked it with Soft Suede ink and stamped a tree trunk.

Pull a few of the Gold sequins off  the roll of trim and adhere onto tree   The Fine Tip Glue Pen is ideal for attaching sequins because of it’s ultra fine tip allowing only a small amount of glue to flow out.

Next, cut 2 strips of Gold Glimmer 1″ x 5 1/2″ to layer on each side and punch a gold glimmer star to attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals at the top.

Cut a piece of the elegant Vanilla 1 1/4″ Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon, fold in half and tie around and knot over the stamped tree trunk. Layer onto a Mellow Moss base card – cut 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″  Create your inside too from a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ very vanilla.

YOUR TURN!  send me your creations!  I would love to see and share!
