I have been really enjoying my pre-order from the upcoming Mini Catalog. You do not have much longer to wait. It goes live on August 4th! I love all of the products but especially the Christmas sets. However, I didn’t really want to get into Christmas cards this soon, but I thought of some that are fairly quick for classes. Here is one that I was thrilled with the finished product. I made it with my Stamp Club last week so thought I would share it with you.
For me, this is a very “clean” card. I tend to add extra “stuff” to get it just right. But in making this one, I could not think of anything that would improve on it. And I have to say I like the idea of this as a multiples card.
I used Thick Whisper White as the base, with a layer of regular Whisper White. The postage seal is stamped in Crushed Curry Ink. I stamped it first and then added the strip of DSP. The DSP is from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper. I have already used almost a complete pack of this paper!! The sheets are all gorgeous.
The deer is stamped in Crushed Curry Ink also on a scrap of Whisper White. It is cut using the Rectangular Postage Punch. The punch is available now in the annual catalog. It is part of a bundle with the Posted For You stamp set. And then it pairs with this stamp set, the Festive Post from the upcoming Mini Catalog. I truly LOVE when Stampin’ Up! matches dies and punches to more than one stamp set.
The Real Red Ribbon is a carryover and is Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon. It is just layered over the DSP like a ribbon on a package. The deer is layered on another piece of the same DSP pack and added with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.
