Twinkling Lights Dies Christmas Card

Twinkling Lights Dies Christmas Card

I’m having so much fun with my Christmas in July installments for 2022! It’s fun getting a jumpstart on making those handmade holiday cards while playing with brand-new paper crating products.

Today’s card features the Twinkling Lights Dies (found on page 32 of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog), Lights Aglow 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, and the Glimmer 12 x 12 Specialty Paper. (I just love this glimmer paper, and it’s gorgeous when die cut with the Christmas tree from the dies.)

In addition to all of the above, it’s a fun fold card: an easel card. Think of all the different stamp sets and patterned paper you could use with this design.

Working from the top down the:

  • Gold Glimmer paper (I applied adhesive sheets before die cutting the tree). Add a red rhinestone!
  • Vanilla Glimmer paper cut with the die from Twinkling Lights Dies
  • Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper measures 4 3/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches
  • Gold Foil measures 5 inches by 3 3/4 inches
  • Evening Evergreen card stock is cut at 5 1/4 x 4 inches
  • Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock base — 11 x 4 1/2 scored at 5 1/2 inches and 2 3/4 inches
  • Lights Aglow DSP 3/4″ x 4 1/4″
  • Sentiment comes from the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set with the die cut label from the Seasonal Labels Dies. Popped up with dimensionals.

This card uses patterned paper from the 6 x 6 2 In Color 2021-2023 Designer Series Paper Assortments. These are also available in 2020-2022 In Color Assortments as well as Brights, Regals, Subtles,and Neutrals. I selected Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen, and Soft Succulent.

Stampin’ Up!’s large color palette makes it easy to stamp the cactus in a variety of colors. It offers a lot of green hues: Granny Apple Green, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Garden Green, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Mint Macaron, and Just Jade. Imagine all of the possibilities!

Cactus Cuties Sunshine & Rainbows

The clean and simple card above uses a strip of Designer Series Paper from SaleABration’s Sunshine & Rainbows. (You might have a package of this laying around.)

Cactus Cuties Cajun Craze

I chose the color combination of Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze for the card above and used Stampin’ Up!’s note cards. Precut and scored, you receive 20 cards and envelopes for $20. Very easy to use to create a lot of cards in a hurry.
