Let’s Make It… Simple Triptych Christmas Card

Start with a (standard A6) card base created from Real Red cardstock. Follow this with a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 8.5 x 12.8 cm. Create the three panels using the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (DSP), each measuring 7.5 x 3.5 cm.

Adhere the three panels to the Whisper White layer, trying to keep the spacing the same throughout. Use a piece of Tear & Tape to attach a length of Mossy Meadow Diagonal Stripe Ribbon across the panels.

Thread a length of Real Red Braided Linen Trim through one of the Glitter Star Ornaments. Tie the trim in place and adhere the star to the ribbon using a Mini Glue Dot.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock in Real Red ink and trim to size. Stamp the Christmas Tree and Mug onto Whisper White cardstock using Mossy Meadow ink and cut out using the coordinating dies. Adhere one to each end of the sentiment piece.

Use two lengths of Foam Adhesive strips to the back of the sentiment such that they avoid the star and attach to the card front.

What do you think to my Simple Triptych Christmas Card?

I hope you enjoyed finding out how to make this simple triptych Christmas card. This card could be recreated for many different occasions by using alternative DSPs that you have in your stash. You might also want to try using three different patterns for the three panels. The possibilities are endless but you are sure to end up with a fabulous card.

How to make a Misty Moonlight Christmas Card

Hello and welcome to the first edition of my September Colour Challenge. This month’s randomly chosen colour is Misty Moonlight. Week 1 is monochrome and I decided on the Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs bundle to create this Misty Moonlight Christmas Card…

Let’s Make This Misty Moonlight Christmas Card…

Start with a (standard A6) card base created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. Next trim a layer of 2020-2022 In Colour Designer Series Paper (DSP) to 9.5 x 13.9 cm. For the final layer, trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 6.5 x 10.9 cm and emboss using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

Before adhering this layer to the card front, wrap around a length of Misty Moonlight ribbon and secure at the back. Tie a shorter length around this and trim the ends.

Stamp the sentiment and small images in Misty Moonlight ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I have used one of the sentiments from the Wrapped In Christmas Stamp Set. Cut out each of these elements with the coordinating dies. Adhere the die-cut elements to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to my Misty Moonlight Christmas Card?

I hope you enjoyed finding out how to make this Misty Moonlight Christmas card. Misty Moonlight is still my favourite of the 2020-2022 In Colours and I think it looks great paired with Whisper White on these Christmas Cards.

DSP Gift Card Envelopes

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop full of ideas and inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up! business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or you may have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

Here are the projects that I have made for our hop today…

We all know people who are really difficult to buy for and often feel guilty when resorting to giving gift cards. But when the packaging is this good you don’t need to feel bad! These cute little gift card envelopes are really quick and easy to make, using a single 6×6″ piece of DSP.

Let’s make it…

The first thing to say is be careful if your DSP has a pattern in which the orientation is important!

Start by trimming 3/4″ from the side of your DSP sheet to create the ‘belly band’. Along the remaining 5&1/4″ edge, score at 3/4″ and 4&1/2″. Turn the DSP and score at 1&1/4″ and 3&3/4″ along the 6″ edge. The smaller section will become your top envelope flap so, again, be careful with the orientation.

Fold and burnish all of your score lines. Cut along your score lines to the intersections so you remove the four corner rectangles. You can then create tabs as shown in the image below and round the corners (if desired).

Adhere strips of Tear & Tape to the small tabs and fold up the larger section to create your envelope. Fold the ‘belly band’ around your finished envelop to get the desired fold lines, remove and adhere. Then slip the ‘belly band’ over the envelope so that the join is at the back.

It’s as simple as that! But, you can of course embellish them to your heart’s content (particularly if your DSP is not as stunning as the Stampin’ Up! Wrapped in Plaid or Feels Like Frost)!
