I created this card using the Perfectly Plaid stamp set that is a carryover last year's annual catalog. This was one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets from last year and there is a coordinating punch that is also featured in this year's annual catalog.

I just love plaid, especially at Christmas, so this Sale-A-Bration Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper was one of the first things I ordered. You can get this as well with any order of $50 or more beginning August 3.

Here are the measurements for this card:

8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Basic Black Card Base

5 1/4 x 4 Real Red Layer

5 x 3 3/4 Basic White Layer

Sentiment Layers

4 1/4 x 2 3/4 Basic Black

4 x 2 1/2 Basic White

Inside Layers

5 1/4 x 4 Real Red

5 x 3 3/4 Basic White

The new Stampin' Up! July - December Mini Catalog has some of the most gorgeous products for the upcoming holiday season. The card I am showing you today is created using the Painted Christmas Suite and I love every one of the products in this suite so I had to order them all!

There are so many stamps, dies and the Painted Christmas 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper included here. This card features the Christmas Pinecone dies as well as the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set which is all sentiments with beautiful fonts for all of your holiday cards and projects. The pine boughs on the front for the card were created using the two large dies that are also included in this set. Check out the details in these dies!

For the inside of the card, I used another of the sentiment stamps included in this suite to stamp the Merry Christmas and used a small piece of coordinating Designer Series Paper to bring the front of the card to the inside.

I have included a YouTube video with step by step instructions for how I made this card. You will be able to order this suite of products beginning August 3. If you would like to get a copy of the July - December 2021 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure, please reach out with your contact information and I will be happy to get one right out to you.

I just love this new Beauty of the Earth Suite featured in the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog! Using the Beauty of Friendship stamp set, Beautiful Trees dies, Bark 3D embossing folder and Beauty of the Earth 12 x 12 Designer Series paper, there are so many options for creating beautiful projects!

I got the idea for this card directly from page 10 of the annual catalog and made my first card almost exactly the same, except I added a couple of the cute birds to the front of the card. I wanted to change my second card up a little so I stamped the sentiment directly on the blue blended piece on the front of the card and I also used the Bark 3D embossing folder for the vellum accent piece.

The tree images are die cut directly from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper and the shrubs on the front of the card were stamped using a two-step process to create a really pretty two-tone effect using just one ink color.

I used a couple of the other stamps from this set to finish off the inside of the card. I hope you like this card and will want to create one of your own to send to a special friend in your life.

I have provided a YouTube video for this card and I would love it if you would subscribe to my YouTube channel. Please also add a comment letting me know which of the cards you like better and I will choose one person from the comments and will send you this card.

Materials for this card:
