Stampin’ Up! Oh, What Fun Christmas Card

Oh, What Fun Card-ilogy by JariToday’s card is a quick and easy Christmas Card from the stamp set, Oh, What Fun from Stampin’ Up!  I had seen a similar card in the Handmade for the Holidays catalog and decided to change mine up just a little since I did not have the stamp sets Stampin’ Up! used in making it.  We have to get a little creative sometimes, don’t we?

I just cut a panel of Whisper White Thick cardstock for my base, then another Whisper White Thick panel to attach my Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to.  I added some dots of Multipurpose Liquid glue onto some of the tree images to adhere them together.

Next I stamped the sentiment from Oh, What Fun in Cucumber Crush ink onto another panel of Whisper White Thick Cardstock, then gave it a Silver Foil frame and adhered with Multipurpose Glue.   The present is a square from the Square Collection Framelits Dies first cut in Whisper White and then cut with another piece of the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.

Oh What Fun Card-iology by Jari

Those squares were adhered with little dots of glue, then I wrapped a strand of Silver 1/8″ ribbon around the top/bottom and the middle and added a little scotch tape to hold it to the back until I made the bow for the front.  The bow is adhered with a glue dot.  Then I popped the present up with Dimensionals above the sentiment.  This whole panel was also popped up onto the front of the card with Dimensionals.    I chose a sentiment from Versatile Christmas to stamp on the inside with Cucumber Crush ink.

Oh What Fun Card-iology by JariI used more of the red striped Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and my Envelope Liners Framelits for lining the envelope.
