White Christmas

One of my favorite things in Stampin’ Up!’s White Christmas stamp set is the little car.  I love the little tree on top!  It reminds me of my childhood when my folks had a big green station wagon to haul all of us around!  It had a reverse seat in the back so that we could wave out the back window at cars and trucks…it folded down into the floor when not in use!  Anyone remember those?  lol!  Anyway…here’s a card I made.  Leave off the sequins and it would be totally mailable without any extra postage!


White Christmas 2

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Soft Sky folded in half.
  • I added a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White.
  • I cut a 2 1/4 x 3 piece of All Is Calm Designer Paper (love the metallic snowflakes!) and placed on the upper left side.  I added a 3/4 x 2 piece of a coordinating DSP design and cut a flag end.
  • Under the DSP, I stamped “Thinking of you…” with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White, I stamped the car and tree with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored with my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Coastal Cabana Blendabilities markers.  I punched it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and layered on a 2″ Circle punch of Soft Sky.  It’s popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finally, for a little bling, I added some Frosted Sequins and Snowflake with a Rhinestone inside.

We’re all ready to head out for the holidays, right?

Love your card design…just giggled that you colored the station wagon red instead of green, but the tree and the car would have blended…love the pop of red!
