Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

Two weeks ago, I shared a series of projects using a common product.

You really seemed to like this, as you got to see the product used in different ways.

I thought I would do something similar this week, using my FAVORITE Christmas Designer Series Paper – the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

My card today starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock which I embossed using the Wintry Embossing Folder. If you’re wondering how to get the mini embossing folder to emboss a full card front, I show exactly how to do this in this video here.

I then took three patterns from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and matted them on Evening Evergreen cardstock.
