Modern Christmas – 30 Day Card Challenge, Day 2

Stampin Up Modern Christmas Card Idea - Shannon Jaramillo Stampinup

Hello my stamping friends!

I’m here today with my take on a recent technique demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire and a color palette inspired by Pinterest.

The Details:

  • Thick Whisper White card base cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″
  • Additional layer of Thick Whisper White card stock, cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and embossed with the Sparkle Embossing Folder

  • To create the striped panel, I started with a base of Thick Whisper White cut to 5 1/2″ x 2″. I adhered a piece of Sizzix Adhesive Sheet cut to the same measurement on top of the Whisper White panel and peeled back the top sheet of backing. I layered strips of multi colored card stock on top, all pieces trimmed to 1/4″ wide. Once all the thin strips were attached to the base, I trimmed the excess off using my guillotine trimmer (retired by Stampin’ Up!, but never by me!)
  • I played around with different color combinations to create my modern palette. In the end I went with Real Red, Gumball Green (retired), Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate.
  • I ran the “merry” sentiment through the Big Shot and then replaced the colored section with the sentiment in Thick Whisper White.
  • The stamp set Banners for Christmas provided the additional sentiment, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

  • I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies for the sprigs of mistletoe and darling bow. All are covered liberally in Wink of Stella and a simple Bermuda Bay Enamel Dot finishes things off
  • A pretty sentiment from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set dresses the card interior, prettily stamped in coordinating colors
  • I used a pattern in Bermuda Bay from the retired Have a Cuppa DSP stack and the retired Envelope Liner Die to line my envelope
