A simple and elegant Christmas in July card for you today!
Just pop up the tree die in the Aspen Dies on a glittery or metallic background- white, silver, gold, red, or even green. Then stamp and die cut the branch and bird to adhere on top of the tree die. Pick a sentiment to mount on the lower right corner.
I could not wait to share this cutie with you today using the Stampin’ UP! Christmas Scottie Bundle!!!
It is a clean and simple card but a WOW with its slimline design with a custom envelope! Check out my video:
The fun part of this card….it can be landscape or portrait! Which do you like the best?
The envelope is made from an 8-1/2″ x 11 piece of cardstock scored on the 11″ side at 2″ from one side and 2-1/2″ on the other side. Turn to the 8-1/2″ side and score at 3/4″ on one side and 1-3/4″ on the other side. Cut as seen in the video.
Measurements: Card Base: 7-1/2″ x 8-1/4″ scored at 3-3/4″ on the 7-1/2″ side. White inside and outside: 3-1/2″ x 8″, DSP: 3/4″ x 8″ on landscape or 3/4″ x 3-1/2″ on portrait card.
The Alphabest Bundle comes with the Best Label Punch. You can use the letters and numbers to create any word or occasion you need. It has fun tag image designs you can stamp the letters and numbers on or string into a banner. I used the Stampin’ UP! Biggest Wish for the HELLO.
I used the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper- such pretty fall paper!
Measurements of DSP: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and on rectangle banner: 1″ x 4-3/8″ bordered by 1-1/4″ x 4-1/2″
I actually had to look up an image of mistletoe to see the white berries so I added some pearls. I kinda tried to add some color to the kitty tail…lol…I never profess to be an artist for sure! But I had already colored the fish, and refused to start over again.
I can’t wait to use the other fun image in the North Pole Mischief. My gift wrapping sometimes turns out that way even without any pets helping:)
I know it’s summer but I had fall on my mind the last couple of 97 degree days…I played around with the Color Blocking Technique with autumn colors of Merry Merlot, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry with Kraft, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso neutrals.
I made a video showing some new products in the Annual Catalog and the July-December 2022 that I used with the Color Blocking technique.
The first step with all of the cards is creating the color block by taping the strips together. Each color was 1-3/4″ x 4″ so you can trim them to what you need.
I used one of the Fancy Frames Dies to cut out the leafy frame from the color block and adhered both pieces to a Kraft Notecard. I also added a Leaf Label and some Amber Gems. I made one card portrait and one landscape. I love how the Fancy Frame fits beautifully on a naotecard! Note: the Kraft Notecards come with 10 cards and 10 envelopes not 20 of each.
I also made a color block and adhered the tree die from the Stampin’ UP! Perched in a Tree over the color block. I added some leaves from the Aspen Dies and some more Amber Gems. The tree oval die cut is on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Soft Suede cardstock.
I also ran a color block through the NEW Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder through my machine and added some leaves from the Ranunculus Dies. The one on the left with a sentiment from Best of Occasions stampe set is on an Early Espresso card base. The card on the right with a sentiment from the Perched in a Tree stamp set is on an Evening Evergreen card Base. The Color Block is 3-3/4″ x 5″ bordered by a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ Very Vanilla panel.
Just some quick and easy cards to use this fall with a bit of fun color added to them:)
