Fireside Trimmings Christmas Card

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator.

Today, I’d like to share with you this card I created using the Fireside Trimmings Bundle and just a handful of other Stampin’ Up products.

Before I really get started, I just have to say, this is a very diverse bundle that I’ve really enjoyed working with. I’ll definitely have more using this bundle as we move closer to the holidays.

I started by Stamping, Coloring and die cutting all of the pieces out. On some of the smaller, more intricate pieces such as the little thingamajig that holds the wood inside of the fireplace and the holly garland, I strongly recommend using the Adhesive Sheets.

The fire is die cut into three pieces using the Fireside Dies so they’ll need to be pieced together with Mini Glue Dots. I used Mini Glue Dots to secure the flames to the wood and put a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to add dimension to the fireplace.

The lantern and the candle are also two separate pieces. Again, I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the two together and added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the lantern to add interest.

The reindeer was all one piece so I just added a couple Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the reindeer.

The beautiful part of the new Adhesive Sheets is that you remove the backing and attach it right to the mantel of the fireplace. But as I was putting this stinker together, it just simply needed a little extra something. I decided to add the Red Rhinestones in substitution for holly berries.

Finally I cut Real Red Cardstock to 4 1/2″× 11″ and scored it in half to create the card base. The DSP was cut 3″×5 1/2″. The DSP was attached to the card base with Stampin’ Seal and then the fireplace was attached to the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then removed the paper backings from the pieces that had Stampin’ Mini Dimensionals and secured them in place.

My final touch was adding a Red Rhinestone to the tip of that reindders nose and turning him into a Rudolph.

Thank you so much for reading along today. I hope you’ll join me again tomorrow as I continue my Christmas In July event.
