Peaceful Woodlands

It’s That Time of Year

We awoke to snow on the ground on Saturday morning in Green Bay, and I must say, I’m not really ready for it. On Friday it was in the 60’s, on Saturday – only in the 30’s!

To create this woodlands scene, apply Versamark ink to the Stampin’ Up! Woodland embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot. Then apply gold embossing powder and heat it with the heat tool until the powder melts. Decorate as desired with glimmer paper, sequins or other embellishments.
Use the Christmas Greetings thinlits dies and fine tip glue pen to add a sentiment.

Create this simple card with just a few Stampin’ Up! items.
Here’s how:
Card Base: Whisper White Thick Card stock, cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, folded to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
Embossed Layer: Whisper White Card stock,
3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″, embossed with the Big Shot and Festive embossing folder.
Houses: Candy Cane Lane paper, cut to 2-3/8″ x 5-3/8″, so that there are 3 houses on each piece.
Sentiment:
Die cut ‘Merry’ with the Christmas Greetings Thinlits from Real Red card stock.

Assembly:

  1. Adhere the embossed white layer to the top of the card base, leaving a 1/2″ wide un-embossed area at the bottom for the sentiment.
  2. Center the Candy Cane Lane houses over the embossed layer, closer to the top so there’s space for the ‘Merry’ greeting on the embossed layer.
  3. Adhere the ‘Merry’ greeting with the Fine Tip Glue pen, or sponge Tombow multi-purpose glue on the back side of the lettering.
  4. Stamp ‘Christmas’ from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set in Early Espresso ink near the right side, in the 1/2″ un-embossed area at the bottom.
Make one, or make a bunch so you’ll have your Christmas cards ready to go out after Thanksgiving!
