Week 4 of my 12 Weeks of Christmas

This week I've used the Spruced Up Bundle to create a wonderfully unusual Christmas card.  The technique uses Vellum, Stampin' Blends and 99% Isopropyl rubbing alcohol.  It's a very easy technique as you'll see.

Spruced Up

Here are the products and measurements I used:

Bundles: Spruced Up (159701), Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies (148551)
Cardstock, Specialty Paper and Vellum: Daffodil Delight (119683), Night of Navy (100867), Basic White (159276), Bermuda Bay (131197), Vellum (101856), Glimmer Specialty Paper (159537)
Stamp Pads: Versamark (102283)
Stampin' Blends: Night of Navy (154891), Bermuda Bay (154878), Pool Party (154894)
Tools: Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine (149653) or Mini Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine (150673), Heat Tool (129053)
Embossing Folder: Wintry 3D (155433)
Miscellaneous: Basic Embossing Powders (White) (155554), Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol 99%, Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430), 1" wide paint brush, Scotch Tape

Daffodil Delight cardstock: 4 1/4" x11", scored at 5 1/2" and a scrap for the small Christmas tree
Night of Navy cardstock: 4" x 5 1/4" and a scrap for the large tree outline and the sentiment
Bermuda Bay cardstock: a large scrap for the large tree and the small tree outline
Basic White cardstock: 3 3/4" x 5"
Vellum: 3 3/4" x 5"

  1. Fold the large piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock on the score line and burnish.
  2. Adhere the large piece of Night of Navy cardstock on top of the Daffodil Delight cardstock using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Set aside.
  3. Take the piece of Vellum and Night of Navy Stampin' Blends and color two strips of about 1" each horizontally across the top of the Vellum.  Color the first strip more heavily than the second strip.
  4. Do the same with the Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Stampin' Blends, moving down the piece of Vellum.
  5. Now, put some 99% Isopropyl rubbing alcohol into a small container and, using a 1" paint brush, splash over the blended area.  Put aside to dry for about 2-3 minutes until the alcohol has evaporated.
  6. Using the snowflake Wintry 3D embossing folder, run the piece of Basic White cardstock through the Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine.
  7. Check the blended area is dry. then adhere the Basic White cardstock to the bottom of the Vellum using liquid glue.  Ensure it is even with the bottom of the Vellum.
  8. Using the fir tree Wintry 3D embossing folder, emboss a scrap of Bermuda Bay cardstock and a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock.
  9. Using the large tree die, cut one large tree from the Bermuda Bay cardstock and one small tree from the Daffodil Delight cardstock.
  10. Using the large tree Outline die, cut one large tree in Night of Navy cardstock.
  11. Using the small tree Outline die, cut one tree in Bermuda Bay cardstock.
  12. Position outline tree around the tree, then turn both over and adhere together on the back using Scotch Tape.
  13. Adhere the trees to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals then adhere the outline trees over the top using liquid glue.
  14. Using a scrap of Glimmer Specialty Paper, cut 3 stars using the star die.
  15. Adhere a gold star to the top of each tree using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  16. Using the 1 1/4" x 2 1/2" rectangle die from the Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies, cut a rectangle from the scrap of Night of Navy cardstock.
  17. Stamp the sentiment onto the scrap of Night of Navy cardstock using Versamark ink.
  18. Sprinkle the sentiment with the white embossing powder and use the Heat Tool to set.
  19. Adhere the sentiment onto the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  20. Adhere the 3rd small star to the corner of the sentiment.
