Yesterday I shared a solemn card I made to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of 9-11. If you missed that card, you can see it here. In my post, I said the layout could be used in a variety of cards despite the fact that the card was built with a 9-11 theme. I wanted to put that statement to the test, so I repeated the layout of that card with a Christmas theme. Here’s the card I made for you today:
Like yesterday’s card, this card features a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ panel of Designer Series Paper, a band along the left side, two rectangles on that band, a sentiment that sweeps across the card and three accents that help to accent the sentiment. While yesterday’s card was a portrait orientation, I made this one with a landscape one. Simple changes made a big difference.
The trio of holly leaves and trio of berries on my card are stamped and cropped with the Merriest Moments Bundle, new in Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. While I only used the holly, berries and dies from this bundle, the other elements are quite amazing. The hybrid embossing folder that’s a part of the bundle has space for a die that fits right inside the folder to emboss AND cut the frame. Here’s a look at this incredible Merriest Moments Bundle:
The sentiment on my card is stamped in Poppy Parade ink with the Christmas to Remember stamp set. I cropped it with a stitched shape from the Tasteful Labels Dies that gave me enough room for the sentiment and to anchor the holly. Here’s a look at the Christmas to Remember Bundle:
The Soft Sea Foam Designer Series Paper that provides a soft base for the focal panel of this card is pulled from the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. There are so many great colors and patterns in this pack of papers, but this page helped me to make the Poppy Parade brighter and the Shaded Spruce richer. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper:
Bundles: Merriest Moments Stamp Sets: Christmas to Remember, Merriest Moments Papers: Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper, Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce, Thick Basic White Inks: Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce Accessories: Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder, Tasteful Labels Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
