Merriest Wishes Card with Coloured embossed Background

It definitely feels strange making Christmas cards in August especially when it's so hot!  But as soon as the new Mini Catalogue comes out and I can order new product (as a Demonstrator we get a perk of being able to order a month earlier than customers - how amazing is that!), I can't resist!

The new catalogue is amazing and it's been fun to play.  Check out this fun card featuring a coloured embossed background.  It's so easy to make by inking up the inside of the embossing folder using your Stamp Pad.  The Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder is so fun and the colour on it makes the words and images pop!


  1. Cut Cherry Cobbler cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using a Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Garden Green cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  4. Ink up the side of the embossing folder that has the Stampin' Up! Logo on it using Cherry Cobbler ink by swiping the ink pad across the folder. If you pat the ink pad you will get a different effect.  
  5. Put the Basic White cardstock on the other side and close the folder
  6. Run the folder through the Stampin' n' Cut and Emboss Machine
  7. Trim embossed cardstock to 3 3/4" x 5"
  8. Adhere to Garden Green cardstock
  9. Adhere to card bae
  10. Cut out tag using Die from Basic White cardstock
  11. Stamp tree using Garden Green ink on Basic White cardstock
  12. Cut out using 2nd largest tree die
  13. Adhere to tag using Dimensionals
  14. Cut 4" of gold ribbon and put through tag.
  15. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  16. Cut Basic White cardstock 1/2" x 2 3/4"
  17. Stamp sentiment using Cherry Cobbler cardstock
  18. Adhere to tag using Dimensionals
  19. Adherre sequin
  20. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  21. Stamp sentiment using Garden Green ink
  22. Adhere to the inside of the card.
