Ink. Stamp. Share. September Special Blog Hop Stampers Choice

It's time to hop along with the Ink. Stamp. Share. September Special Blog Hop as we share the projects we are currently working on. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their amazing projects and ideas to inspire you. 
 With the cooler weather here in Colorado, I have been in the mood to create Christmas cards. My card design features the returning favorite, Merry Moose Bundle (item #153015) paired with the new Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder (item #153576) from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. I love the detail of this new embossing folder and it adds wonderful texture to the background of this design. 
 Products Used:
Merry Moose Bundle (item #153015)
Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder (item #153576)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
3/16" Braided Linen Trim (item #147808)
Stampin' Blends Markers
Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (item #141897)
Early Espresso cardstock card base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" 
(scored at 4 1/4")
Pear Pizzazz cardstock Layer 1 - 5 1/4" x 4"
Shaded Spruce cardstock Layer 2 - 5" x 3 3/4" 
(embossed with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder)
Very Vanilla cardstock - label die cut and for stamped images
Early Espresso cardstock - large label die cut
Braided Linen Trim - Approx. 6"
This card design is simple to create with lots of layers and texture to create interest. The Shaded Spruce cardstock layer was embossed with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder and I added Clear Wink of Stella to the raised trees for a touch of sparkle to help them stand out. The labels were die cut with the dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the sentiment from the Merry Moose stamp set was heat embossed onto the Very Vanilla cardstock layer to step up the design. The moose and raccoon images were stamped with Early Espresso Classic ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and I colored them both with Stampin' Blends Markers. I punched out the moose image with the Moose punch and fussy cut the raccoon image. I added the Braided Trim around the center of the Shaded Spruce cardstock layer and added the sentiment labels over the center with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the moose and raccoon images to the labels with Stampin' Seal Adhesive and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the legs and log to the card front. This design would be perfect for a masculine Christmas card or other occasion just by changing the sentiment. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to explore creating your own Christmas cards for friends and family with the wonderful products in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.
