Hello and happy Thursday! It’s another Happy Inkin’ Blog Hop and we have a color challenge. And… I have a confession to make.. I made this card two weeks ago but when I went to post I realized it was wrong for that weeks challenge! Ha… I thought that was funny… and I saved the card to post for today’s challenge. Win, win 😀

Stampin' Up! Decorated w/ Happiness.1

The colors I chose are Granny Apple Green, Mossy Meadow & Merry Merlot – not colors I would normally put together, but I really, really like it. And of course the background is Sahara Sand from Subtles 6×6 DSP – and that really softens everything. The real fun is the sparkle from the Gold Foil Sheets, the Simply Elegant Trim and the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. The Granny Apple Green pine boughs just jump out – from Decorated Pine Dies. Another fun element is the Stylish Shapes Dies circle. This may be one of my Christmas card favorites. :O)

How to do this card..

  • Die cut three pine boughs from Granny Apple Green card stock – Decorated Pine Dies.
  • Die cut three ornaments from Gold Foil Sheets – Decorated Pine Dies from the Decorated w/ Happiness bundle
  • Die cut two circles: one from Subtles, Neutrals 6×6 DSP & one from Thick Basic White – Stylish shapes Dies. Adhere the two together for stability
  • Cut two panels: one from Subtles 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand and one from Thick Basic White, 4 x 5 1/4. Adhere these together for strength.
  • Card base is is Sahara Sand 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
  • Stamp sentiment using Sahara Sand and Merry Merlot Markers on Thick Basic White piece – Hope & Peace stamp set. Die cut with _____________________
  • Now put together:
    • The 4 x 5 1/4 panels are adhered to card base with dimensionals
    • Place two pine boughs as shown using liquid glue to adhere
    • Add top left ornament adhering with liquid adhesive
    • Add Stylish Shapes Circles with dimensionals – add last spray of pine boughs on this
    • Add the lower left ornament with liquid glue, slipping a portion under the circle
    • Add last ornament to circle
    • Add sentiment panel with more dimensionals
    • Add Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots as shown
    • Fray two ends of a length of Simply Elegant Trim – add with folded glue dots.
Stampin' Up! Decorated with Happiness, inside

For the inside I stamped the pine bough in Mossy Meadow ink on a Basic White piece 4 x 5 1/4. Then stamped the sentiment – both from Decorated with Happiness stamp set – in Merry Merlot ink. At the bottom I added a strip of the Subtles 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand. This was adhered to the inside of the card – and done!

Stampin' Up! Decorated with Happiness. completed card/ envelope

The envelope got more of the Subtles 6×6 DSP in Sahara Sand for the flap – and a pine bough from Decorated with Happiness stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink. I love everything about this card – hope you do as well!
