I tried a new technique called Floating Strips. I used the Stampin’ UP! Stitched Rectangle Dies to make some Trees with sentiments from the Stampin’ UP! A Wish for Everything stamp set.
Super cool and easy to boot! Take a look at my video.
They are called “Stitched Rectangle Dies” not Right Triangle Dies- that was the stamp set!
I have a traditional red and green card using the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.
And then I used some whimsical pinks and light greens with silver accents with the Whimsy and Wonder Designer Series Paper.
A little DSP on the inside finishes off the card:)

I love to do a non-traditional colored Christmas card with colors like pink, mint green, purple and shades of blue. So here is this year’s Flirty Flamingo and Coastal Cabana card using the Stampin’ UP! Words of Cheer Bundle.
Mixy-match the colors for a cheery Christmas card! My tip is to cut a “happy” and a “foliage” die out of the 4″ x 5-1/4″ colored border because you are going to cover it with the stamped 3-3/4″ x 5″ white panel. Do this on two color panels, and you end up with two cards. I had to lighten up this photo so the colors are a little woozy…
There is more to this Stampin’ UP! Words of Cheer Bundle…
I just had to use that great Stampin’ UP! In the Wild Designer Series Paper from my Paper Share…
I used so many fun things on this card…the Stampin’ UP! Animal Print Embossing Folder, the Hippo and Friends Dies for the sentiment, the In the Tropics Dies for the leaves, and the Basic Borders Dies in the middle of the card, and the In Color 2021-2023 Jewels!
