Stampin' Up! 2022 Christmas Cards: Spruced Up
November 04, 2022
Hello again, time for some catch up posts now that my blog is behaving as it should.
I'm busy making more Christmas cards, and have decided to participate in Martin Stone's (Martin is a UK Demonstrator) 30 Day Christmas Card Challenge in November. The challenge for the 1st had 'Red' as the theme, and since I was a day behind I used one of the cards I created for last month's Spruced Up Class (the PDF for this 5 card class with steps and measurements in imperial and metric is available for instant download for $15AUD or less than $10USD here on my PDF class page).
I will be posting every challenge day HERE on my business Facebook page, and a few here during the week. Make sure you visit and click 'Follow' on my Facebook page to see all 30 days of the Christmas cards.
So onto today's card. The shade of red I chose was Sweet Sorbet, one of the 2022 new InColours. I am really enjoying this red right now. My slimline card is 9cm x 21cm once folded to perfectly fit inside our Slimline Envelopes (see below).
It was actually a very simple card to put together. Using our Adhesive Sheets (see below) before die-cutting the present outlines really helps the process.
I added some subtle embellishments with a silver metallic thread (from Simply Elegant Trim - see below), and the white adhesive sequins from Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins (see below). There is also gold, Garden Green and Sweet Sorbet in the pack so it's a great festive embellishment.
