Stampin’ Up! Celebrate with Tags Christmas Card

Today’s card uses the Celebrate with Tags Stamp Set, Celebrations Tag Dies, Brightest Glow Stamp Set and paper from the 2021-2023 In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper pack. I also used white glimmer paper for the die cut snowflakes.

I have entered this card in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #189. Below is the Challenge board and I went across the top and bottom rows, down the left and middle columns, and diagonally from left to right. and diagonally from right to left.

Using the dotted print in Soft Succulent from the 2021-2023 In Color Designer Series Paper I adhered a panel to a Basic White mat, then adhered this to a card base in Evening Evergreen. There is that dreamy color combination again…Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen!

Using the Evening Evergreen plaid print from the In Color Designer Series Paper, I used the Celebrations Tag Dies to die cut a tag. From the Celebrate With Tags Stamp Set, I stamped the image of the mittens in Soft Succulent ink onto white cardstock then used the coordinating die from the Celebrations Tag Dies to cut out the mittens. The mittens were then adhered to the front of the tag.

Several snowflakes were die cut using the snowflake die from the Celebrations Tag Dies in white glimmer paper from the Real Red & White 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper pack. One of the snowflakes was adhered over top of the mittens and onto the die cut tag. I looped white twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack through the top of the tag. The decorated tag was then adhered to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the tag was placed at an angle. A double bow was adhered from white twine was adhered to the top of the tag.

A sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set was stamped onto white cardstock and die cut using the circle die from the Celebrations Tag Dies set. The sentiment was adhered to the card front towards the middle right of the card and slightly overlapping the previously adhered tag. The sentiment label was also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The remaining glimmer snowflakes were adhered to the card front as were several Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some added sparkle!

The “Merry Christmas” sentiment was chosen from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set and stamped on the inside panel in Evening Evergreen ink. A strip of the In Color plaid in Evening Evergreen was added to the bottom of the inside panel, then the panel was adhered to a mat in Soft Succulent and this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

A piece of In Color paper in the Soft Succulent pattern was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed away the excess paper around the flap to finish off the envelope.

The below photo shows off the sparkle in the die cut snowflakes! Sometimes it’s difficult to capture the shimmer and sparkle on cards, despite good lighting, using a photo box, etc.
