Merriest Moments (Traditional Colors)

A traditional take on the Merriest Moments bundle by Stampin’ Up!

A red plaid background, green leaves, and a red poinsettia – pretty traditional, huh? The colors on this card really pop – and I absolutely love those decorative matte dots (I’m fond of the black dots too -they’re available in the annual catalog).

To make this card you’ll need:

  • Sahara Sand cardbase: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ along the 11″ side
  • Peaceful Prints DSP: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Shaded Spruce cardstock: 4 x 5 1/4″
  • Scraps of Basic White card stock
  • Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Shade Spruce ink pads
  • Decorative Matte Dots
  • Tombow Multipurpose Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
  • and of course…….the Merriest Moments Bundle (stamps/dies/embossing folder)

Here are the steps needed:

  • Adhere the DSP piece to the cardbase ( I used glue for almost everything on this card
  • Run the Shaded Spruce cardstock through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine in the embossing folder
  • Then…run that embossed piece through using the detailed die to cut it out – have no fear the die will find where it belongs as you settle it over the raised image – perfect!
  • Adhered the Shaded Spruce piece over the DSP layer
  • On the Basic White scraps, stamp your sentiment and poinsettia flowers in Real Red (smallest gets a Daffodil Delight in the center), and leaves in Shaded Spruce – cut these out using the dies and the Cut & Emboss machine.
  • Adhere the sentiment to the middle of the Shaded Spruce piece and after layering your poinsettia, pop up in the corner using Dimensionals.
  • Finish with a few decorative dots…
Look at the detail on those leaves – I love it!
