Earlier this week I posted a birthday card using the Work of Art stamp set from Stampin’ Up. Today I wanted to share a Christmas card using the same set and basic layout. Yes, I know it’s only August 😉 – but the months are going to fly by, so it’s time to get started on those Christmas cards!
I stamped the large swoosh 3 times using (from the bottom up) Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Certainly Celery inks from Stampin’ Up on white card stock. Let the ink dry completely – this is a very important step. If the ink is not completely dry, embossing powder will stick where you don’t want it!! I stamped the Christmas tree with Pear Pizzazz ink over the swooshes and immediately sprinkled clear embossing powder over the tree. Tap off the excess and heat with your heat gun to melt the powder. (There are a lot of options on heat guns. Here’s a link to Amazon with several choices. The one I have is made by Milwaukee. I think they may have discontinued it – I’ve had it forever and it’s still going strong!) The tree is from the Bottle Trees set by Hero Arts – sadly the set is no longer available on their site :(. But if you don’t have a tree that will work, I think this one would be great.
Stamp the sentiment with Pear Pizzazz ink. I’m not sure who made this stamp – it’s been in my stash a long time and it’s not marked with the company. Just use your favorite Christmas sentiment!
Layer the stamped panel to green card stock. Add red and white striped ribbon and attach the panel to a white card. Tie a green button with red twine and attach over the ribbon.
The same basic layout as the Work of Art Birthday Card in this post, but a totally different look!
