Christmas in July Part 1

#stampinup   I can't believe that it's almost time for the second Christmas card-making class of the season.  My guests will be making 12 cards on Saturday--4 cards from each of 3 designs. Here's a sneak peek of one of the cards they'll be making.

I have to give props to the person who actually designed this card. I found it on Pinterest and I totally fell in love with it. It's perfect! It's made by Leena Girsa and you can see her original card on her blog, A La Cards.

For my card, I used Whisper White Thick Card Stock, cut lengthwise. I added a Whisper White panel that I embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I cut a 3-3/4" square piece of Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper and stamped the trees from the "Wonderland" stamp set, twice, in Basic Black Archival Ink. Because this paper is slick, you'll need to set this piece aside for a while until the ink is completely dry. Once the ink was dry, I adhered it to a 3-7/8" square of Basic Black card stock and added this element to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a 3/4" x 4" strip of Whisper White. I flagged the ends of the strip.

Finally, I cut the star from Gold Glimmer Paper using two "nesting" Stars Framelits. (I'm saving the center for another project.) I added a little snail to the back of the star (my Fine-Tip Glue Pen hadn't arrived yet) and added the banner to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Isn't this card awesome?! Thanks, Leena, for the inspiration! I think the only thing I changed was using Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere most of the elements.
