A Christmas Card in Non-traditional colors using Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid


  • Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set
  • January 2021 Mini Catalog Sneak Peek DSP
  • Sending Hearts January Paper Pumpkin Kit - Order by 10 January 2021
I'm ashamed to admit it.  I'm still working on Christmas Cards.  It seems like no matter how many I make, I just want to make one or two more so I can use my favorite stamp sets and dies before the end of the Holiday season.  Today I'm playing with the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, again.  I decided to use non-traditional colors and one of the new FREE Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Papers, called Oh So Ombre, which is available to Demonstrators in December, and will be a Free Sale-A-Bration Selection to customers January 5.  I also wanted to use some of the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon, which I haven't played with enough.  I used my Rococo Rose Stampin' Blends to color it to match the rest of my card.  And I love that the ribbon retained its holiday sparkle and shine, even when colored with alcohol markers.

The card above uses a basecard of Rococo Rose Cardstock.  Then a layer of Whisper white, and another layer of Whisper White dry embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Next I added a 1-1/2" strip of one of the upcoming Free Sale-A-Bration Selections, from the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper Package.  Then I used one of the scalloped Layering Ovals Dies to create an oval Rococo Rose layer.  I paired it with one of the Stitched Shapes Oval dies, which I dry embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

The image layer was stamped with one of the trees from Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, using Versamark Ink on Rococo Rose Cardstock.  I covered it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  Then I used the Pine Tree Punch, to punch it out, and mounted it on Dimensionals before adding it to my card.

I die cut a label using one of the new dies from the upcoming Potted Succulents Dies, from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  I used one of the sentiments from the For Unto Us Stamp set and stamped the sentiment in Rococo Rose ink.  I mounted the sentiment on Dimentionals before adding it to the oval layer.  I used my Rococo Rose Stampin' Blends to color the Snowflake Splendor 1/4" Ribbon, and tied it in a bow on the front of the card.  For a final piece of blend, I added three of the Frosted Droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets embellishment pack.  I love how fresh the non-traditional colors look on this card!
