Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek Carols of Christmas in July!

Happy Monday, y’all!  Are you ready to start your week?  This one for me is going to bring some surprises, I think.  The work week may culminate in us going home early!  Guess I’ll know in a few days.  I have to hope that if we do, we don’t have to come back any time soon – getting a decent hotel in the middle of summer in Ft. Walton Beach… yikes! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night – thanks so much for spending some of your Sunday evening with me!  If you didn’t see me live, here’s a link to the video so you can see how to make this card.

I used the Carols of Christmas stamp set – which you can get right now for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! – and the matching Card Front Builder Thinlits.  Which you can select to fill your Starter Kit!!  How cool is that?!?  Take a look see at what I did with this fun bundle.

I used some Eastern Palace paper to make a card front – it’s just a smidge smaller than the front of my Dapper Denim card front.  I adhered it right to the card front with some Liquid Glue.

For the center panel, I used a piece of Pool Party card stock and cut it with several of the dies in the new Card Front Builder Thinlits.  

I popped it over a slightly smaller panel of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (I show all of this in the video!) with Stampin’ Dimensionals and some Liquid Glue.  Then I used some Fast Fuse and wound a few loops of Silver Mini Sequin Trim around – underneath my planned sentiment.

I also stamped a Chocolate Chip deer on Whisper White, cut him with the matching die in the Card Front Builder Thinlits and adhered him with Liquid Glue and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

To make the sentiment, I inked the sentiment from the Carols of Christmas stamp set in Pool Party, then used a Sponge Dauber to ink the edges with Dapper Denim.  I stamped the shaded image on a piece of Whisper White and then cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I didn’t use a mat for this, and popped it over the top of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used some Liquid Glue to adhere some of the cut-outs that I’d saved from making the card front to a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pool Party mat and into the Dapper Denim card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Pool Party cut out and I surrounded it with some stamped snowflakes from Carols of Christmas in Pool Party ink…

…and I added a little more of the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How pretty is this stamp set and matching Thinlits?  And this doesn’t even touch on all the images and die cuts that this Carols of Christmas bundle brings to the table!  Remember – it’s never too early to start making Christmas cards – and I think this set will be a go-to for you!  Hope you like!
