Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive ~ Christmas Card

Sometimes you just need a quick Christmas card that is still gorgeous.  Thanks to Stampin' Up!'s beautiful Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper, gorgeous Gold Specialty Paper and Ribbon, not to mention beautiful sentiments (Framed & Festive!), that's totally doable!

This card takes just minutes to put together, but has a serious WOW! factor! Photos really do not do this one justice.  Here's a tip, to get more bang for your buck with your specialty paper ~ use dies to cut out the center of any specialty paper that will be covered up, like the gold paper used on this card.  When you create your card, that empty center will be hidden and you will have that inside bit to play with on another project.  (Rectangle Stitched Dies are PERFECT for this!)

Here's another tip, when using symmetrical dies, like the Rectangle Stitched Dies, you can run them through your Stampin' Cut & Die machine only half way, then reposition them and run the other half through, creating a smaller die cut.  (Does that make sense?  If not, let me know.  I can create a short a video to demonstrate!)

Card Base ~ Cherry Cobbler Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Brushed Metallic Cardstock ~ 5-1/4" x 4"
Layer 2 ~ Boughs of Holly ~ 5-1/8" x 3-7/8"
Layer 3 ~ Brushed Metallic Cardstock ~ 2" x 2-1/2"
Layer 4 ~ Cherry Cobbler Cardstock ~ approx. 1-7/8" x 2-3/8"
