Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

I bought Amelia some glitter glue last week, and we finally had a chance to open it and play today. She was doing such a fabulous job on her own, that I decided to make a glitter and glitz card while she was working on her projects.

Star of Light, Christmas Pines, Stampin' Up!

This is a fun fold design that was shown at the Stampin’ Up!® OnStage Local in Hartford in April. It’s another easy one. I also received one of these fun fold cards from my friend Sandy Moriarty earlier this year. Here are the details for this Christmas card.

Score the long side of a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock at 2-3/4″, 4-1/4″, 7-1/4″ and 8-1/2″. Cut two pieces of the beautiful All Is Bright Designer Series Paper (DSP) – one at 4″ x 4″ and the other at 4″ x 2-1/4″. I loved the design of this paper as soon as I saw it.

Using the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies, die-cut Merry and Christmas from Smoky Slate Cardstock and Gold Glimmer Paper. (I used retired Champagne Glimmer Paper, because I have a lot that I need to use up. And I couldn’t find my Gold Glimmer Paper.) Layer the glimmer paper over the Smoky Slate to create a shadow. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the layers.

On a 4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, stamp the swirl image from the Star of Light Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Classic Ink. If you have them, I used some retired products instead. I stamped the swirl in Gold Metallic Ink, then sprinkled some retired Heat & Stick Powder over it, heated, and then added some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter. I love Heat & Stick Powder, and I stocked up before it retired. Since the Shimmer Paint came back in the Holiday Catalog, I’m hoping the Heat & Stick Powder will also reappear soon.

Die-cut the star from Gold Foil Sheets using the Starlight Thinlits. Position this over the card without adhering, then position your sentiment stamp – from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set – on the cardstock. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark and heat emboss with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. (I used the Stamparatus to make sure my sentiment was where I wanted it.)

To put the card together, adhere the top two-thirds of the 4″ x 4″ piece of the DSP on the top panel of the card, then adhere the Merry die-cuts over it. I added adhesive to the Crumb Cake Cardstock, making sure I kept the adhesive at least 1/4″ away from the edges, then adhered the DSP over it. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the die-cuts to the DSP.

On the third panel, adhere the Very Vanilla panel (just the top two-thirds), and adhere the final 2-1/4″ x 4″ DSP to the bottom panel. Adhere the Christmas die-cuts over that at an angle.

Here’s the card open, so you can see all the panels.

Christmas Pines, Star of Light, Stampin' Up!
