I have been asked to help a customer figure out how to duplicate a card sample from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. The design is simple yet gorgeous. Here is the card from the catalog:
I made the card in 2 different sizes so they could figure out what size and techniques they want to use for their card. The first card is a tall and narrow card that will need a custom envelope made with the Envelope Punch Board.
The Mossy Meadow cardstock was cut to 6-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ and then scored at 3-3/4″.
The vellum is from the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack. I cut one sheet into 3″ x 3″ pieces. By cutting the vellum to this size, I am able to get pieces for four cards out of one 6″ x 6″ sheet.
The Whisper White cardstock was cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″.
On this card, I inked up the stamp from Peaceful Wreath in Mossy Meadow and stamped it off before stamping onto the white cardstock. I then immediately used a Blender Pen to pull some of the color from the image to color in the leaves. This just adds a touch of color to the leaves.
The berries were colored in with a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.
The Whisper White was adhered to the vellum slightly off center. You can see that I do not have as much vellum showing on the edges like the sample from Stampin’ Up! This was my choice so I could get more cards made out of the same sheet of vellum. You could easily cut a larger piece of vellum, but it will only give you one of these cards per sheet of the vellum by doing that.
Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to adhere the Whisper White and the Vellum Layer to the card front.
The sentiment is three stamps all alined on one block, from the Peaceful Wreath stamp set inked in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
The second card is a standard size that will fit in the Whisper White Medium Envelopes.
The Mossy Meadow cardstock is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″.
The Whisper White is 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum is 3″ x 3″, same as the other card I made.
On this card, I stamped the image in Mossy Meadow right after inking up the stamp (no stamping off). I used the Blender Pen to pull some of the color to the leaves.
The berries were colored with the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.
The sentiment was stamped one at a time.
I adhered the Whisper White and Vellum layer flat onto the card front.
To finish off both cards, I tied a bow with the Gold 1/8″ Ribbon and adhered in the corner.
Well there you have it, 2 cards showing off different techniques. These will go to the customer so she can get an idea of what she prefers to do for her cards this year. I hope it gave you some ideas as well.
