Curvy Christmas Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends:

I created this month’s swap card combining the Curvy Die with a greeting from the Curvy Christmas Stamp set and using the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper and Poinsettia Dies:

 

With the Curvy Dies, I could either turn the die to create little dots all the way across or use the edge with no dots.  I chose no dots since the paper was embellished enough.  The Poinsettia Die cut out plush poinsettias from the designer paper and all the poinsettias on the DSP are the same size so I could have enough die cuts to layer two poinsettias.

Recipe:

Supplies:

  • Curvy Christmas Stamp Set for the greeting and the bow
  • Curvy Dies
  • Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper
  • Poinsettia Dies
  • Wrapped In Christmas Stamp Set for inside greeting
  • Cherry Cobbler Ink for inside greeting
  • Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Pearl Basic Jewels
  • White embossing powder and Versa Mark
  • Heat tool
  • Specialty Vellum Adhesive or glue dots and regular adhesives

Cuts:

  • Base:  Whisper White, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Layer 1- make 2:  Cherry Cobbler, 5 1/2 X 4 1/4
  • DSP:  Plush Poinsettia 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 cut with the Curvy Die to leave red base 1/2″ on the left side and 1 3/4″ on the right side from the bottom.
  • Two Plush Poinsettias cut out from the DSP with the Poinsettia die
  • Bow:  Cherry Cobbler, 1 X 2 embossed with versa mark ink and white embossing powder, with red thread (retired) swirled underneath the bow
  • Inside Layer:  Whisper White, 5 X  3 3/4
  • Inside Strip:  Cherry Cobbler 4 X 1 with 4 X 3/4 layer of the plush DSP

Would it be a dumb question to ask why you used a full layer of Cherry Cobbler on the front and the inside instead of just using a Cherry Cobbler base?

A reasonable question, Sal.  With the inside of the card having a full white base section at the top,  you have room to write a long Christmas note. Writing on the dark Cherry Cobbler is hard to read.  I think it brightens up the card as well and I love the extra weight that layers add to a card so it is not as flimsy.  Necessary?  Not at all.

SAL,  Share A Lot
