Winter Glory

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring holiday projects.  Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you!  You may have arrived from Katie’s blog.  She had a great project!

WP_20180927_16_41_06_Pro (2)I fell in love with Winter Woods at first sight!  Having the In The Woods Framelits Dies made this purchase a MUST!  The Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes in gold were perfect for this wintry scene.  A background of 4 X 2 3/4” Gold Foil was ideal for the white trees.  The 3 “branch” trees and fir tree were die cut with Whisper White.  Wink of Stella was used to edge the fir tree and branch edges, and covered the “branch” trees.  Each branch of the fir tree was raised slightly with rolled-up glue dots pushed to the back of the branch.  The 2-layer snowy hill was formed with the hill slope die and embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  The “branch” trees were tucked into the snowy slopes and a shoestring bow of 3/8” Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon graced the base of 1 tree.  The branched fir tree was adhered to the large tree and adhered to the gold background with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, gold Metallic Pearls embellished the branches of the fir tree.  Because I am a firm believer of stamping the envelope to coordinate with the card tucked inside, I used Smokey Slate to stamp the multiple “branch” trees on the envelope front.

This is such an elegant card.  We did find that one of my Big Shots cut the “branch” trees better than the other.  Using a shim for cutting and removing the trees with the foam pad and brush also eased the process.

Thanks for hopping by to view our creations. Have a Peaceful Christmas!  Now it is time to zoon to Sandra’s blog to see her holiday creation.

  5. I’m so loving this bundle. I’ve only just got so loved to see your project as inspiration.

  6. WOW, so glisteningly pretty!

  7. So beautifully elegant! Love the tip about rolling glue dots to lift the fir branches. Thank you for sharing!

    • Thanks Terri. I used rolled up glue dots all the time- not as messy as a dot of liquid adhesive! I read where one demonstrator referred to rolling up the glue dot like a “booger”. Kind of gross but a good explanation!

  8. Rosemary, the card is beautiful. I love the gold foil!! TFS
