Hello Everyone! Today’s project is a fun sparkly Christmas card. You’re going to see a lot of Christmas and Holiday cards over the next few weeks as I send a lot of cards and I make it a goal to hand-make each one. I used the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer stamp set and the coordinating Deer Builder punch. I made this live on my Facebook Page this past Tuesday. If you are new here, I go live every Tuesday at 7:30pm EST. Check out my page here. I hope you enjoy my project! (All the way at the bottom you will find the card stock measurements.)
The main products that I used on this card are the Peaceful Deer stampset with coordinating Deer Builder punch and the Stylish Shapes dies. To start, I used an A2 size card base in Basic white and covered the whole front with Red and White Glimmer paper. Then I adhered the Real Red plaid Regal’s Designer Series Paper strip to the Real Red Cardstock so that a bit of the red peeks out on either side of the plaid and placed that on to the left side of the card leaving about half an inch from the fold. After that I started on the shapes.
The die set that I used (Stylish Shapes) has many different sized circles, banners and squares. I used the biggest two circles and the longer two banners. I cut the larger circle out of Basic Black and the smaller out of Basic White.For the banners, it was the opposite. I cut the larger out of basic white and the smaller out of basic black.
I took my Peaceful Deer stampset and a scrap of basic white. I inked up the ”oh what fun” deer in Real Red and used the Deer Builder Punch to cut it out. I stamped the sentiments on the banners in basic white ( on the black banner) and Momento Black ink (on the white banner). I then assembled them all together.The larger of the two I used liquid glue to adhere to the cardfront but hte smaller I used Stampin’ Dimensionals, I also used dimensionals on the deer to help him pop up off of the circle. As for the placement of the banners, I just did what I thought looked nice, nothing super official. I liked them to be offset a bit, and I didn’t want to cover any of the words.
On the inside I just took the “Wishing you a wonderful year and friendships deer” stamp in Real red and placed it inside. For the final touch, I used Rhinestones basic jewels. I placed them on either side of the banners and called it done.
I hope you enjoyed todays project, check out some of the cool things happening at Stampin’ Up! this month below!
