Thanks for stopping by my blog!  I hope that I can help inspire you with my cards!  Making cards is a way for me to relax and let my creativity bloom.  For this card I combined the Love of Leaves Bundle and the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp set all by Stampin Up®.  I really wanted to find a way to use a fall stamp set and turn it into a Christmas Card.  This is my finished product!  Let me know what you think in the comments below!  

Here’s a video link for this card and a fall card that I did with the Love of Leaves bundle!


Card Base and cuts:  (DSP – Designer Series Paper)

Card Base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4

Layer 1 – Plaid Tidings DSP – 4 x 5 1/4

Layer 2 – Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 

Layer 3 – Whisper White – 1/2 x 2 1/4

Layer 4 – Plaid Tidings DSP – 1/2 x 5 1/2 

1.  Layer 1 – Adhere to the card front.

2.  Layer 2 – Stamp girl Gnome from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set then color in using stampin blends. (I used Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler). 

    A.  Stamp four of the large leaves in Cherry Cobbler, 2 of the long leaves in Mossy Meadow and 2 of the second to the smallest leaves in Old Olive.  

    B.  Using the Stitched leaves dies cut and emboss all the leaves using the die cutting machine. 

    C.  Using snips fussy cut out the Gnome. 

    D.  Using Stampin Dimensionals place the first leave in the center of  Layer 1 towards the top edge.

        1.  Place the next leaf putting Stampin Dimensionals only on the outer leaves directly below the first leaf towards the bottom edge.

        2.  Next you will place the next two leaves to each side centering top and bottom.  You will need to trim the stems.  (Remember to only place Stampin Dimensionals on the outer leaves and use liquid glue to adhere the inner leaves.  

    E.  Now using liquid glue adhere the Old Olive leaves and Mossy Meadow leaves underneath the wreath you’ve just made as shown.  

    F.  Using Mini Glue Dots adhere the ribbon as shown.

    G.  Next using Liquid glue adhere the Gnome to the center of the wreath.

3.  Layer 3 – Stamp the sentiment from the Gnome for the Holiday’s stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink then adhere to the card front just below the Gnome.

4.  Adhere three Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front as shown. 

5.  Layer 4 –  Adhere to the inside of the card to the bottom edge.  Then stamp the sentiment from the Gnome for the Holiday stamp set in Mossy Meadow.  

So there you go a Christmas Card with a fall stamp set.  It’s good to think out side the box with your stamp sets so that you get the most use possible.  I hope you like it!
