Special Season With a Bit of Shimmer

Hi Everyone,

I love Christmas and all that you can create during the Season. It really is a “Special Season” isn’t it?

I love this set from Stampin’ Up! and the way this turned out. This will be a club card for my girls in December. I hope they like it.

Directions and Supplies below. Enjoy!




  • I used the Shimmer White Card Stock for this card. I love the shimmer in it. I cut the card base at 4 1/4 x 11 and folded in half.
  • The mat cut to 4 x 5 1/4 was embossed on the Big Shot using the Pretty Print Embossing Folder. I just went up to the top side with it, which left just enough room to add a saying.
  • I stamped the Merry Christmas at the Bottom using Cherry Cobbler Ink. Then I tied a Ribbon using my
  • Magic Bow Maker and the 1" Cherry Cobbler Ribbon. I attached it at the back with tape.
  • Stamped the Image on Shimmer White with Old Olive then I took the ink off the trunk of the tree and used a Chocolate Chip Marker for the Tree Trunk. Then cut it out using the Oval from the Ovals Framelits.
  • I wanted more definition so I dipped/rolled the edges of the oval in my Versamark Pad and sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder over the edges. Shook off and heated to get that nice finished look.
  • Colored some Basic Rhinestones with a red Sharpie and added the Rhinestones to the card.
  • Assemble card with dimensional's and you're done!!


I hope you enjoyed my share today. I’ll be back soon.

Don’t forget you can get these and any supplies you need at my online store.

Gorgeous! I love all the rich details. I am adding it to my XMAS cards file just so I can gaze at it even though I doubt if I ever could attempt to replicate it! Wonderful job!
