Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 2021 Week 4: Painted Christmas

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello friends. Today I have three Christmas cards made with a 6x6" piece of patterned paper and a super easy cutting template. I have used a new Christmas product Suite called Painted Christmas which will be available to purchase from August 3rd.

To make these cards, I started with three Evening Evergreen C6 card bases (piece of A4 cardstock cut in half vertically and folded). 

Next step is to cut three pieces of Painted Christmas patterned paper (start with a 6x6" piece), using this cutting template.

I adhered the two left hand size pieces of paper to the bottom of 2 portrait orientation cards, and the right hand side piece to the bottom of one landscape orientation card. The size allows for a small mat around the bottom and sides.

Once the paper was adhered, I ran the whole card fronts through the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. I love the effect this gives.

The next step is to add a t5hin strip of the gorgeous Dazzling specialty paper across the join. This paper is one of the free items you can earn with a $90 order in Saleabration which is on August 3rd to September 30th. It is so gorgeous! You get 8 6x6" sheets in a pack.

For the sentiment, I have used Christmas to Remember stamp set and the Seasonal Labels Dies. The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen. To finish the card off I have stamped a couple of the holly leaves from Christmas Season stamp set in Garden Green (on a couple of the cards I stamped off once before stamping the holly leaves and I think I like that better) and the berries in real red.

I stamped an image from Forever Fern Stamp Set onto the bottom right of the envelope, in Crumb Cake ink. I really love how that coordinated with the card.

For the actual slimiline card, the main focus is the beautiful copper foiled piece of Gilded Autumn DSP. This is 8cm x 20cm. I then added a sentiment label (one end cut with the Labels Pick a Punch), a copper foil cardstock die cut, a punched circle and some linen thread. Check out all of these products in the links at the end of the post.
