Today I am sharing a 3D Handmade Christmas card that I made using the Ready for Christmas Stamp set. I have to admit that this card does take a little time to make. But as soon as I saw the Ready for Christmas stamp set – this card was stuck in my head! LOL.
Here are the details on the card:
The Card base is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 5 1/4″ x 11″. Score on each side at 3 1/2″.
This card uses two different Stampin’ Up! Designer papers: The Fresh Florals and the Wood Texture DSP.
I used a piece of 3 7/8″ x 5″ piece of Fresh Fig DSP from the Fresh Florals DSP stack. Attach this piece to the inside center panel. Stamp the pictures on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Color in the pictures and cut them out with the coordinating framelits from the Christmas Staircase thinlits.
Fireplace: Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to 2 1/4″ x 2 1/2″. Use the brick pattern mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. Lay the brick mask over the Cherry Cobbler cardstock and use a sponge dauber with Cherry cobbler ink to rub over the mask to make the brick look. Use the Hearth & Home thinlits to cut a mantle from the Wood Texture DSP. Cut out the separate piece to use as the mantle on the fireplace. Trim out the window panes and the bottom piece of the window to make the hearth. Line up the brick background on the center of this panel. Attach the Hearth over the brick background.
Cut out 6 pieces of pine using the framelit from the Christmas Staircase thinlits and Garden green cardstock. Add to the Fireplace Mantle. Stamp 3 stockings with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green ink. Cut out with framelits. Cut 3 small bows from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler. Attach the stockings to the mantle with glue dots.
Next we are going to work on the staircase side of the card on the left. Cut 2 staircases from the Wood Texture DSP.
Stamp 2 pine swags with Garden Green ink on a piece of Garden Green cardstock. Cut out with the coordinating thinlits from the Christmas Staircase thinlits set. NOTE: you need to the two swags to line up – so you will flip one over and carefully fill in the swag with the pine stamp. Stamp the little dog with Basic Black archival ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and color as desired. Also stamp the cookies from Santa. Stamp the side table with Black ink on a scrap of Basic Black cardstock. Cut out all of these items with the coordinating Christmas Staircase thinlits. Attach one set of stairs to the front of the side panel. Cut down the fold line to the top of the top step and follow the line of the stair to cut a diagonal line. The white of the card base will be hidden behind the stairs. Line up the second staircase and attach to the back/inside of the card. Attach the table to the bottom of the stairs. Attach cookies for Santa on the table top and attach the dog next to the table. Attach one swag on the outside of the staircase. Attach the reverse swag to the inside of the staircase.
Last is the right side of this card. Attach a 3 7/8″ x 5″ piece of the Powder Pink Fresh Florals DSP to the outside of the right panel. Stamp the Christmas tree with Garden Green ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp 8 ornaments. Cut out the ornaments and the tree with the thinlits. I used a scrap of Silver Glimmer paper to cut a star for the top of the tree. I cut out 4 small squares of Quilted Christmas DSP to make the presents. Use the thinlits to cut out matching bows for the presents. Attach the tree to the right panel of the card using dimensionals. Cut along the edge of the tree diagonally up the card along the tree edge. Add the ornaments and star to the tree. Add the presents below the tree.
Stamp the sentiment “a Wish for Everything Merry” with Cherry Cobbler ink on the inside of the right panel. That’s it!
