I received a swap card in a recent holiday swap and loved the layout.  I changed it up a little by using the set, Evergreen (still available on the carryover list from Stampin' Up!) and different colors.  I used this card as a M&T a couple times for a workshop and Club!  The two-step stamping is easy and really looks wow!

The color combo is really wow, too…Smoky Slate, Bermuda Bay and Cherry Cobbler is really stunning together!  And…that yummy Cherry Cobbler ribbon…just a little goes a LONG way!  It's on SALE this week for the WEEKLY SPECIAL…don't forget to place your order here to get it!  Here are the details on my card.

  1. The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Smoky Slate folded in half.
  2. I added a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
  3. The 3 3/4 x 5 layer of Smoky Slate is embossed with the Northern Flurry folder and placed on top.
  4. I stamped the background of Stampin' Up!'s Evergreen tree twice in Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White, then stamped the  two-step loopy Evergreen image on top with Bermuda Bay ink.  After I stamped, I cut it with the Oval Framelit.
  5. The Joyful Tidings greeting was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink slightly over the evergreen image.
  6. I added Silver Glimmer punch stars to the tops with Stampin' Dimensionals (SEE MY 40% off ADHESIVE SALE!!!)
  7. Finally, I tied a knot with the 1 1/4 Cherry Cobbler Ribbon and added it to the front with Mini Glue Dots (also ON SALE during my 40% Adhesive sale!)

Isn't that a striking card?  I loved it and so did my customers since several bought the products to make it for their Christmas card!
