Hi Stamper, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, the theme is Home for the Holidays, so the design team created a project for the holiday of their choice. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I chose to make a Christmas Card with a gift card pocket. My project can be a card and a gift! The card base is Cherry Cobbler CS and then I added a Basic White layer that had been die cut using the Dots & Spots Die. I was focusing on the new Framed Florets bundle. Before making this card I had not ordered the Christmas stamp set (Framed and Festive) that coordinates – this project made me order it! In the meantime, I used the Brightest Glow stamp set for the sentiments. The sentiment on the front is heat embossed in white onto a Cherry Cobbler oval.
Inside my Christmas card is a Basic White layer that was folded into four panels with the last panel being the pocket for the gift card. Three of the panels have Cherry Cobbler and Basic White rectangles that were die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies. The circles on the last panel are Shaded Spruce and Basic White cardstock die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies.
The stamping inside my Christmas card was done in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce inks using the Framed Florets & Brightest Glow stamp sets. Below, I have added a link to the video that I did showing how to make this card. I hope you give it a try! I will be adding a written tutorial that includes this card soon – keep an eye on my Tutorial Shop. 🙂
