My Stampin Up Christmas Cards 2020

My Inkie Fingers Stampin Up Christmas Cards 2020

I always dread mass-producing my yearly Christmas Cards. As many of you already know, I don’t do well with too much repetition. However, when I saw this card on page 40 of the August – December 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog I just knew that I could probably handle the assembly line production for my Stampin Up Christmas Cards 2020. Not to mention I learned a new technique so that made it (almost) fun! haha

Stampin Up Christmas Cards 2020

As I was making this Christmas wreath card it occurred to me that I made a wreath card last year too! (I didn’t post it online)Then I realized that the first card in the Christmas in July Series (2020) was also a wreath. As were the cards my sideline and I made for my dad’s seniors home! I’m thinking I have a ‘thing’ for wreaths and didn’t even know it!

Anyhow, back to THIS years card. The main reason I wanted to use the Ornamental Envelopes Stamps was that the example card in the catalog (Page 40 of the August – December 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog) looked simple, yet elegant. I also noticed the red centers of the white flowers and it intrigued me to learn what the artist did to create that effect. So after a little digging, I learned what they did and thought you would also have fun with this technique. Watch the video to see how to do it, or read the instructions below.

Stampin Up Christmas Cards 2020 Instructions

Cutting your paper:

  • I will assume you are making ONE card. If you are making more than one card adjust the cardstock needed accordingly.
  • Cut a side folding A2 size card from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
  • You will need 1 piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock (5-3/8 X 4-1/8) for the card front and 1 piece of Whisper White Cardstock (5-3/8 X 4-1/8) for the card insert.
  • A scrap piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock to emboss the sentiment.

Stamping, Embossing & Coloring:

  • Start by stamping pulling out the 6th largest (working up from the smallest) die in the Layering Circles Dies. Using a pencil trace a circle about 3/4″ of an inch from the top, but centered on the Crumb Cake Cardstock.
  • Stamp the rounded twig stamp from the Ornamental Envelopes Stamps with Early Espresso Classic Ink. If you used the die listed about you will have no problem following the curve of the stamp to create a perfect circle. I stamped the rounded twig about 5 or 6 times to create the circle and fill in any sparse spots.
  • Once I had stamped the wreath I erased the pencil marks with a white eraser.
  • Using Versamark Ink stamp the berries curved stamp from the Ornamental Envelopes Stamps one impression at a time. The first impression will be at the top of the wreath and the second impression will go on the left side of the wreath. I found that if I stamped the berries once, then used the White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it as it was easier to see where to stamp the next set of berries with the Versamark Ink.
  • Lastly, pull out the stamp with the 3 little flowers. Also from the Ornamental Envelopes Stamps set. I found that I could easily stamp these 3 times in the space left on the right side of the wreath. Heat set the flowers with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder as well.
  • This was the most enjoyable part of making 30 of these cards. The coloring!! Using the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Marker, color a small circle in the center of each flower. Then working from the red dot outwards, draw lines to follow each petal. Did you know you could color on melted embossing powder? How did I NOT know this until NOW?!? haha

Adding the Sentiment Splatter and Drops:

Assembly & Final Touches:

  • Add a tiny twine bow to the wreath just below the left hand corner of the sentiment. I used some twine I got on clearance at Michaels a long time ago. I cannot link it sorry.
  • Adhere your card front to the card and the insert inside your card.

How many of these can YOU handle making? I reached my limit at 30. However, I felt such a sense of acomplishment and satisfaction when I was done. Now to get these address and mailed out to family.
