Christmas or All Occasion Cards from the Green & Gold Suite Collection


  • Stampin' Up! Green & Gold Suite Collection; an Online Exclusive
  • Several New Online Exclusives
  • BONUS DAYS  3-31 July; $5 coupon for each $50 USD order to spend in Aug

I'm in love with the new Stampin' Up! Online Exclusive Suite, Green & Gold Suite Collection.  I've made another alluring card that can be used for Christmas Holidays or for an occasion such as an Fall or Winter Anniversary card.  The Green & Gold Suite Collection includes two Stamp Set and Die bundles that are ideal for Holiday cards.  And then, the Stampin' Up! design team provided an additional matching all-occasions Sentiment Stamp Set, called Everyday Greetings Stamp Set, Item #165084 | $21 USD, as another Online Exclusive, that can be used to create all-occasions cards using the Green & Gold Suite Collection.  What a great idea for extending the usefulness of this beautiful suite!  Today's creation uses three sets of dies; two from this suite--Golden Greenery Dies to die cut images from the Seasons of Green & Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper, and Greetings of the Season Dies to cut a sentiment label--and the new Changing Leaves Dies to die cut Gold Foil sprigs as accents among the foliage.   Color theme for this card is Old Olive, Basic White and three different prints from the Green & Gold Designer Series Papers from this suite.   The sentiments from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set, and the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set are stamped in Old Olive ink onto a Basic White sentiment label die cut using the Greetings of the Season Dies.   Use the die cut bells and a pine bough from the Designer Series Paper to add interest to the sentiment label. I added  a couple of green gems as accents.   Thank you to Gail Ellis, fellow demonstrator, for inspiration for this card.

The basecard for this card is Old Live Cardstock.  Then a layer of one of the prints from the Seasons of Green & Gold 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Then, a matte of Basic White around a layer of Old Olive dry embossed using the retired Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder.

Then, using the Greetings of the Season Dies, die cut a Basic White sentiment label.  Using the Golden Greenery Dies, die cut two Old Olive Cardstock pine boughs.  From the Graceful Greenery Vellum 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is also part of this Suite, die cut frosted pine boughs and one of the Old Olive foliage images to use as accents behind the sentiment label. Using one of the dies from the Changing Leaves Dies, die cut Gold Foil sprigs to include in the accent pieces among the foliage.

    From one of the Season of Green & Gold 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper, fussy cut one of the double foil bells with a bow to use as an accent on sentiment labels.  Using the Greetings of the Seasons Stamp Set, and the everyday Greetings Stamp Set, select sentiments and stamp them in Old Olive Ink onto the Basic White die cut sentiment label.  Add green gem accents to finish the cards. Tip:  Although I have the gems that coordinate with this suite, I'll often pick up extra accessories from the Clearance Rack at a discount that also work with projects I'm creating.  While the Cherry Cobbler & Pearl Adhesive-Backed Berries work beautifully on Christmas Cards, I felt these gems worked better on the All-Occasion card.  See more details about the Seasons of Green & Gold Suite Collection below.
