Many of my customers tell me they find me on Pinterest, so I pay attention to the analytics offered there. Today’s card is using a layout that Pinterest tells me has been one of my most popular designs. You can see it at the bottom of this post.

I began with a Soft Sea Foam card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with a layer of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″. Prior to gluing, I embossed the layer with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. Christmas calls for music, doesn’t it?

Merry Melody


Next, I cut the word “Merry” three times, and glued the three together for thickness. Wanting it to be subtle, I used the same color as the background, Soft Sea Foam.


The left side of the card was created with Painted Christmas Designer Paper and a Scalloped Contours Die. I cut a 1 1/4″ piece of the designer paper, and a 1 /1/4″ piece of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, glued them together, and cut the edge with the Scalloped Contours Die. Then, I raised it on Dimensionals.


Now, for those adorable trees from the Christmas Trees Die Set. I cut one from Garden Green Cardstock, and one from Pear Pizzazz. Deciding the colors was easy, because Stampin’ Up! coordinates everything for us, and the names were listed with the Painted Christmas Designer Paper.

The cute tag is one of the Tailor Made Tag Dies, cut from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, tied with Linen Thread, and attached with Dimensionals. “Christmas” is from the Snowman Season Stamp Set, stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink. 


I hope you enjoyed seeing how I created a Christmas card from my original, birthday design. You could say, I “cased” myself. Clicking on the picture will take you to the original blog post with the details.
