Stampin' Up! Words of Cheer ~ Sketch Saturday


Welcome to my blog!  Today's card was inspired by this Sketch #691 from Sketch Saturday's blog.  This is the last Sketch Saturday sketch for 2021.  Isn't that crazy!?  This year has flown by!

I used Stampin' Up!'s Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper for most of this card.  I love that almost all of Stampin' Up!'s designer series papers are double sided and quite often you can just flip the DSP over and use both sides of the same sheet on a project.  That is exactly what I did for this card.  

I needed a fairly small sentiment for this one, and I'm still in Christmas mode, so I decided to use Words of Cheer as my stamp set this time.  This card really goes together pretty quickly, and only has the sentiment stamped.  (Of course, I did heat emboss the sentiment!)

Card Base ~ Evening Evergreen Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/4", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper ~ 4-1/8" x 5-3/8"
Layer 2 ~ Ever Eden Designer Series Paper ~ 2" x 2-1/8" (*2)
Layer 3 ~ Evening Evergreen Cardstock ~ 1" x 2-3/4"
scrap of Soft Succulent Cardstock 

Inside Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Inside Layer 2 ~ Ever Eden SDSP ~ 1/2" x 5-1/4"

  • Adhere Layer to the front of your Card Base.  
  • Next, adhere Layer 2 to Layer 1, as shown.
  • Stamp 'happy' and 'Christmas' using Versamark ink, then Heat Emboss with Gold Embossing Powder
  • Trim closely around the sentiment
  • Place Glue Dots behind Layer 3, and one in the center of the front of Layer 3.  Use these to attach the Gold Trim to.  
  • Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach Layer 3 to the center of Layer 2
  • Either cut Stampin' Dimensionals in half, or use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the sentiment to the center of Layer 3. 

For the inside, adhere the Inside Layer 2 piece to the edge of Inside Layer 1.  Then, attach Layer 1 to the inside of your card. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today. 
Happy Stamping!
