Stampin’ Up! Christmas Quilt Card Front Builder

Mornin’, y’all!!  Happy Monday.

??

Sorry to start the week with an oxymoron!  Although this is a good week on a couple of levels – one…it’s ONSTAGE WEEK!!  Whoo-hoo!  I work tonight and tomorrow night and then it’s off to OnStage with 8 of the ladies in our team and no-telling how many other demonstrators!  We’re touring the Home Office on Wednesday then Thursday the Main Event begins!!  And – then when I get back on Sunday….that will leave just one more week till I go home!

Whooo-hooo!!  I’m really ready, y’all!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thank you so much!!  If not, but you’d like to see the card we made, here’s the link to it on YouTube!

The sneak peek I showed you yesterday ended up as the start of the card we did – I finally got past my mental brain block and figured it out!  It uses the wonderful tree dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits, a little plaid paper from the Christmas Around the World DSP and a sweet little sentiment from Christmas Quilt.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and, with the Big Shot, cut the Card Front Builder Thinlits double and single tree shapes from near the top.  I used the same dies to cut the shapes from a piece of Christmas Around the World DSP.  Then I stuck the plaid cuts inside the negative spaces and used scotch tape on the back to secure them in place.

I ran the panel back thru the Big Shot, cutting the trees a second time.  Check the video for a tip about placement, okay?

The insides of those negative spaces are filled with Garden Green die cuts – in the same way I did the plaid trees.  Then I embossed the panel in the Softly Falling TIEF and matted the whole thing on a Real Red mat.

My sentiment, from Christmas Quilt, is stamped on a strip of Very Vanilla in Real Red.  I bannerized the end with my Paper Snips and edged it with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  It’s popped on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – both regular and Mini.

I cut another Christmas Around the World Card Front Builder tree, covered it with glue from my Fine-Tip Glue pen and “sugared” it with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to another tree in Very Vanilla.  I used some Dimensionals on the back to wind a few loops of Gold Metallic Thread and, with the addition of a little Liquid Glue, added it over the sentiment.

I added a few gold stars from the Metallics Enamel Shapes and the card front was done.

On the inside, I cut another double tree with the Card Front Builder Thinlits at the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stuck in another Christmas Around the World DSP tree (using some scotch tape on the back) and then adhered a Very Vanilla die cut over the top with Liquid Glue.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got two more Card Front Builder trees on the front – one in plaid and one in Very Vanilla…

…and more Christmas Around the World DSP plaid on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  For all that this one bamboozled me on Saturday night, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!  I love love love this plaid paper and those trees in the Card Front Builder Thinlits are just the best, don’t you think!?  Don’t forget the sweet and simple sentiment courtesy of the Christmas Quilt stamp set!  Hope you like!
