Hi everyone, one of my favourite cards in the August to December 2020 Mini Catalogue was a Christmas card featuring the Peace & Joy Bundle. It was relatively simple but had a great impact. You can see it on page 18. One of the first things I did when I bought the Peace & Joy Bundle was to recreate this card.
The most challenging part of this card, aside from the fussy cutting (I know some of you are not a fan of fussy cutting), was lining up the stamped image with the die-cut card base. There are a few ways you can do this part. I think I made it harder than it needed to be but I’ll share my process. I cut a panel of Whisper White Cardstock which was smaller than the card base. I positioned the Peace and Joy stamps where I thought I would be happy with them. I then picked up both stamps on the one block. You could also use your Stamparatus for this process. I stamped the words in Misty Moonlight on the Whisper White panel. After cleaning the stamps, I actually positioned the Joy dies over the stamps and tried to make then as perfectly spaced as I could. I used removable tape to tape the dies together. Next up, I put them onto my card base and ran them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. Once that was done all I had to do was tape the stamped panel to the card base, and then finish off the card.
Here’s the card…
I love this card so much. The card sample in the catalogue used the smaller die so that less white space was showing. I decided I really loved the look of more white space. As you play around with card designs, especially if you are CASEing (Copy And Share Everything) a card, try and do what feels right for you.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set, die set, etc, also comes a part of a bundle or suite, I link to all so that you have choices. I also link refills and basic supplies like adhesives which correspond with items used to make my projects. These links take you to my online store.
