Stampin’ Up! Spruced Up Christmas Card with Silver Accents

The Spruced Up Stamp Set and the Spruced Up Outlines Dies from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog is a must have for making quick and easy holiday cards! The items are sold as a Bundle, too, so you save 10% when you order them together.

The dies in the Spruced Up Outlines Dies do exactly what they say. The dies cut out an outline and an insert! For my card today, I ran the ornament dies and the gift die through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine twice – once in Parakeet Party cardstock and once in Garden Green cardstock. I used the Garden Green “outlines” and the Parakeet Party inserts on my card today. But, you can use the die cut pieces separately if you choose for a completely different look! I also stamped on the inserts using the snowflake stamp from the Spruced Up Stamp Set in the same color – Parakeet Party – for a tone-on-tone look.

My card sits on a Parakeet Party card base with a panel of the Silver & Gold 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper which is a Sale-A-Bration item. The specialty paper was matted onto a piece of Garden Green cardstock and the entire panel was popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also popped up the sentiment label and the gift box for added dimension. A Garden Green bow was added to the smaller ornament followed by silver Festive Pearls to finish off the card.

If you’re looking for a brighter pop of color when using these dies, how about die cutting the ornaments and the gift from some pretty Christmas DSP? I think it would make for a stunning card!
