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.

In Good Taste Treat Cup

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you my Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste Treat Cup! These Mini Coffee Cups are part of the Heartwarming Hugs Suite but it feels a little soon for Christmas themed projects so I’ve used them with the In Good Taste Suite to create a gift holder that can be used all year round. The Stamp Set and Dies form the Warm Hugs Bundle which is also part of the Suite.

Let’s Make It…

Use the Warm Wraps Dies (part of the Warm Hugs Bundle) to cut out the two sections of the wrap from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP). Apply Tear & Tape to the tabs and adhere to form one piece. Insert the cup into the wrap and adhere if required.

Wrap a length of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon around the cup and tie in a bow at the top. Tie a length of Night of Navy Ribbon (for the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack) to the bow and allow the tails to trail down the cup.

Stamp the ‘for you’ sentiment onto Petal Pink cardstock in Night of Navy ink and cut out using the coordinating ‘ring’ die. Use the larger circle die to cut out a piece of the DSP.

Adhere to of the small leaves from the In Good Taste Elements to the back of the ring of Petal Pink cardstock. Adhere to the DSP circle using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere one of the large leaves to the back of the DSP circle. Finish with one of the wooden hexagons and adhere to the cup using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to my In Good Taste Treat Cup?

I hope you like my Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste Treat Cup. These cups are a really nice size for a small gift – something coffee related would be perfect (or maybe hot chocolate later in the year)!
