Golden Greenery Christmas Card

Golden Greenery Christmas

With the recent release of Stampin’ Up!’s brand-new Online Exclusives, there’s plenty of paper crafting product choices from which to make Christmas in July cards and projects. My favorite product of this release is the Season of Green & Gold Suite Collection. It boasts two stamp set and die bundles, gorgeous Season of Green & Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper, printed Graceful Greenery Specialty Vellum, vanilla satin ribbon, and, of course, bling.

Season of Green & Gold Suite Collection

Golden Greenery Christmas Card

Today’s card uses the Golden Greenery stamp set and the Greetings of the Season stamp set (sentiment) as well as the printed vellum. Read about some of the details below:

  • Mossy Meadow card stock base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
  • Graceful Greenery Vellum measuring 5 1/4 x 4
  • Cherry Cobbler layer measuring 3 3/8 x 4 5/8
  • Basic White layer measuring 3 1/4 x 4 1/
  • The pine bough image is a two step stamp, meaning it takes to stamp images to create the design. I inked the first stamp with Mossy Meadow, stamped “off” on my grid paper, and the stamped on the Basic White layer. I then inked the second image in Mossy Meadow and stamped directly on top of the first image. This creates the two-tone effect and is easy to accomplish with the photopolymer, clear stamps.
  • Stamped sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink
  • Colored 9″ of the Iridescent Striped Trim with a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend
  • Cherry Cobbler & Pearl Adhesive-Backed Pearls

I experimented with a couple of heat embossing techniques with the pine boughs. For this first card below, I inked the first image with Mossy Meadow and stamped on the Basic White panel. I inked the second image with Versamark, stamped on top of the Mossy Meadow, and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
