One of my favorite cards from last year’s Christmas Stack-a-Stack was this card.
You can see it HERE.
The Merry Christmas to All Stamp Set and the Merry Christmas Dies are still available in the Annual Catalog if you don’t have them…and need them!
I came across it in my box of Christmas cards, and it decided to case myself! I thought the banners would be a great canvas to place the copper Cheers die cut on.
I used the Stampin’ Up Sip Sip Hooray and the Cheers to you Bundles on this card with the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper.
When I stamped the champagne flute with the “liquid” image that goes in the glass, I wasn’t feeling it. So I pulled out my retired Confetti Stars border punch and filled the glass up with “bubbly” stars! I added a copper flute behind my stamped flute to jazz it up, too.
and you are put into a drawing for a Stampin’ Up Goodie from me!
Now for my card and video today!!
Oh, I had fun making this card! Who is not excited when they see a gumball machine?
I used the Stampin’ Up Snow Globe Scenes Dies in an alternative way…to use all year long!
How did I make it? Take a look at my video…
Dang…I forgot to show you the how to make the top of the gumball machine!
Why did I do that?
Because AFTER I made the card and video, I saw that I needed a top on it!
Why didn’t I notice that before the video?!? I think it really adds to the card:)
Here is how I made it with the Timeless Tag punch cut on the bottom with the snow globe die.
I am sorry that my gumball machine is topless in this photo…scandalous.
Card Base: 4-1/8″ x 11 scored at 5-1/2″ Inside Whisper White: 3-7/8″ x 5-1/4″
Black and White panel: 3 each of 1″ x 5″ Strips taped together and then die cut with the Largest Stitched Rectangle Die
3″ x 3″ Whisper White for inside of globe
Bases of gumball machine: (4) of Real Red 1-1/2″ x 2-1/4″
Scraps of colored cardstock for gumballs, scraps of Silver Foil or Glimmer for on bases
I finally cut into the gorgeous Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper!
I made a Fun fold called a Buckle Card because of the way the card closes- a belt slides into a buckle:)
Here is a video showing how to make one:
The beautiful hummingbirds with the clear embossed texture on the DSP were easy to fussy cut with my Stampin’ Up Paper Snips. I made two different variations depending on how the hummingbird was facing.
The Stampin’ Up Here’s a Card stamp set had a great sentiment that fit the card wonderfully.
Card Base is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 5-1/2″ on 8-1/2″ side.
The Leaves DSP is 2-3/4″ x 4″ and the belt DSP is 1-1/2″ x 3″.
The Belt is 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 5-1/4″ so there is a 1/4″ flap to attach to the card base.
The embossed circle is 2-1/4″, the bordering circle is 2-1/2″. Inside panel is 4″ x 5-1/4″.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

* I did use the 2-1/4″ and the 2-1/2″ circle punches:)
I just loved the Stampin’ Up You Always Deliver stamp set when I first saw it
since I have been known to tell my UPS driver that he is one of my favorite people!
However, I made him a USPS carrier fo this card:)
I made a gift card holder simply by scoring a 4-1/4″ x 9-3/4″ piece of cardstock
at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″ on the 9-3/4″ side and folding up the edge at 8-1/2″ to create a pocket.
Of course, you know I cut my oval scallops out of the Crumb Cake panel on the front;)
