Stampin’ Up! Night Before Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers,  today for our hop we have a color challenge for you.  The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.  Using the Night Before Christmas DSP was a good choice because all of these colors are in the paper.  I let the paper do all the work on my card which made it super quick to put together.  Just change up the paper for a completely different look.

The color challenge:

Stampin’ Up! Night Before Christmas:

The recipe:

Card base: Cherry Cobbler 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Sentiment mat: Cherry Cobbler die cut with the Rectangle Dies

Banner strips: Night Before Christmas 7/8 x 4 and punched with the Triple Banner Punch

The details:

  • Attach your banner strips to the embossed Crumb cake panel making each strip a different length.  Cutting the tops off the strip after they are adhered
  • Attach your Crumb Cake panel to the Early Espresso mat
  • Wrap a Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Striped Ribbon around this panel
  • Attach the panel to the front of the card with dimensionals

The sentiment:

  • Stamp your sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink onto the Very Vanilla Rectangle Die panel using the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set
