Patterned Pines Christmas Card - Tutorial Mini

Is it possible that Christmas really is only about 2 1/2 months away!!! I'm starting to think about my holiday cards, how about you? Stampin' Up! gives us so many wonderful stamp sets for the holidays, it is truly hard to chose which one(s) to use. Between now and New Years, I thought it would be fun to post some ideas to help you with your holiday card making.

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:
Patterned Pines Stamp Set Level 1 Hostess (item #116525 in the Holiday Mini Catalog)
Snow Swirled Stamp Set (item #111690)
Scallop Oval Paper Punch (item #114889)
Photo Corners Paper Punch (item #109042)
Garden Green Card Stock (item #102584)
Whisper White Card Stock (item #100730)
Brushed Silver Card Stock (item #102935) --- see page 159 of main catalog
Glorious Green Stampin' Write Marker (item #100047)
Real Red Stampin' Write Marker (item #100052)
Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker (item #100079)
SNAIL Adhesive (item #104332)
Bone Folder (item #102300)

1. Garden Green Card Stock (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") ... score at 4 1/4", then crease crisply with the bone folder. Set aside. This is your card base.

2. Whisper White Card Stock (4 1/4" x 2 3/4").
.....Using your Stampin' Write Markers in Glorious Green, Real Red, and Old Olive; color the trees on the Patterned Pines stamp. Then stamp on the Whisper White card stock, pressing firmly.
.....Center and attach the Whisper White piece to your card base using snail adhesive.

3. Photo Corners Paper Punch.
.....Punch out 4 sets in the Brushed Silver Card Stock. You will now have 4 large and 4 small corners in silver. Using SNAIL adhesive, attach the larger ones to the four corners of the white and the smaller ones to the corners of the card base.

4. Ink Season's Greetings from the Snow Swirled Stamp Set using your Real Red Stampin' Write Marker, then stamp on the Brushed Silver Card Stock. Punch out stamped image using the Scallop Oval Paper Punch. Attach to base of card (part on the Whisper White, part on the Garden Green Card Stock) using SNAIL Adhesive or Dimensionals.

The Brushed Silver Card Stock has a shimmery effect to it. I really feel it dresses up the card and is a great accent paper.
