Pals Blog Hop: Whimsy & Wonder Holiday Card

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Sentiment as a focal point.” We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Create this card using the Whimsy & Wonder Suite Collection. Holiday Card by Mary Fish. Stampin' Pretty SlantI love the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees Bundle for Holiday cards.  “May the Love of the Season Warm Your Home & Fill Your Heart”. I embossed the sentiment in silver to coordinate with the gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder 12×12 Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Layer and adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whimsy & Wonder 12×12 Specialty Designer Series Paper to a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Silver Foil together and to the card base Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Use a Paper Trimmer to cut two pieces of Silver Foil to 2 x 4. 

Adhere one to an Adhesive Sheet and one to a Foam Adhesive Sheet. 

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) and the Christmas Trees Die to crop the two pieces.  

Adhere as shown by removing the protective backing from each.

Adhere a Wonderful Snowflake as shown with a Stampin’ Dimensional!

LOVE THIS! A Stampin’ Dimensional fits PERFECTLY in the center of the Wonderful Snowflake to stay completely hidden when adhered. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment (Whimsical Trees) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic White card stock.  

Cover with Silver Metallic Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Set with a Heat Tool. 

Crop with the Frightful Tags Die and a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini).

Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

POP OF PERSONALITY!  Embellish with Opal Rounds (snowflake centers) and Rhinestone Basic Jewels (sentiment).

  1. Well Mary you had exactly what I wanted AGAIN. Have some time on my hands today and was thinking about what to do with some of my OLD stamps. Then I came across your tutorials and there were several years of cards using old stamps. I am off to my stamp room…….

  2. I’ve already made my Christmas card for this year; but this will be my card for next year! Love the pink and silver

  3. Your card is GORGEOUS my friend. Just got that bundle and will be trying it out this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. This card is totally amazing! And as crazy as it seems, I’d never fathomed using the basic borders dies to “stitch” my envelope flap. What an exquisite touch! As always, thank you!
