Stampin’ Up!® is offering this amazing Christmas Suite in the 2021 July – September Mini Catalog called Painted Christmas. This suite offers two stamp sets, two sets of dies, Designer Series Paper, ribbon and Gold Holly Leaves. You can mix and match the stamp sets and dies so it is like getting a ton of products the coordinate to use for your Christmas cards.
I used a set of dies in the Painted Christmas Suite called Christmas Pinecone Dies on my card. This set includes two large dies which cut out the evergreen on my card and six pinecone dies which are two step dies. This means you use two or more dies to make an image (in this case a pinecone).
The first thing I did was cut out the two background dies in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen card stock. I layered these together using Adhesive Sheets. Adhesive Sheets are great for putting adhesive on the back of intricate die cuts. You just peel off one side of the Adhesive Sheet and put it on the back of a piece of card stock. Then run it through your Cut & Emboss Machine with a die. Then all you need to do is peel off the back piece of the Adhesive Sheet and stick it on your card. It works great!
Then I cut out the pinecones using Crumb Cake and Early Espresso card stock and layered them together. I cut out the berries in Cherry Cobbler card stock. The berries are from the other die set in the Painted Christmas Suite called Seasonal Labels Dies. The greeting is from the stamp set called Merry Snowflakes. I stamped it in Evening Evergreen ink and cut it out using a die from the Seasonal Labels set.
