Winter Woods Christmas Card - How Did They Make That Episode 2

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share another episode of How Did They Make That!  This week I am sharing how the Stampin' Up! Concept Artists created the great little Holiday Thinking of you Card featuring the Winter Woods Stamp Set on page 61 of the Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here's a look at the card that I am sharing.  

Here's a look at the inspiration card by the Stampin' Up! Concept Artists on page 61.

Tips & Tricks: 

This card was actually a lot easier than I had thought it would be.  After figuring out all the sizes and dimensions of the card (which I will give you as we go along and again at the bottom) it was super easy.  I started off with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Old Olive Cardstock (they used a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece).  This was the only change that I made to the card.  Next you will need a 3" x 5 1/2" piece of Old Olive Cardstock, a Stamparatus (or other stamp positioning tool), Old Olive Ink.  The Stamparatus works great for this card because we are going to do the hinge technique to get the center panel.  If you are not sure what I am talking about you will after you watch the video below.  

Using the hinge technique with our Stamparatus and 3" x 5 1/2" piece of Old Olive Cardstock we are going to take the birch tree image and place on the cardstock the way you want it and close the top plate.  Ink up the Cling Stamp in Old Olive Ink and close the door.  Lift up and move down one notch in your Stamparatus and repeat.  You will repeat this step all the way down to the bottom of the 3" x 5 1/2" piece of Old Olive Cardstock.  Once complete attach to the center of your Old Olive card base with Stampin' Seal.  Next you will need one of the fabulous gold floral pieces from the Feels Like Gold Laser Cut Speciality Paper and attach to the center with Stampin' Seal.  

Add a little Stampin' Seal to the center of the gold piece and place your ribbon.  Take a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and the sentiment and ink it up in Real Red Ink and stamp it.  Take a 2" Circle Punch and punch it out and add to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Now stamp four - six Pine Boughs in Old Olive and two in Garden Green Inks.  On a scrap of Soft Suede Cardstock stamp two or three pinecones in Soft Suede Ink.  Use the matching In the Woods Dies and cut out all these pieces.  Use a combination of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin' Dimensionals to attch these pieces to the circle and tuck some underneath.  

The finishing touch to this card is to take your Take Your Pick Tool and place Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the Gold Foil Floral piece where the berries are.  This adds a show stopper touch the the card and a ton more bling then just the Gold piece alone.
