Simply Sunday: Silent Night

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a simply beautiful card that I did at with my technique clubs this month. We focused on the “Woodland” embossing folder and some fun techniques that you can use with them to create a “WOW” card.

I paired up the Woodland folder with the beautiful “Wonderland” and “Happy Scenes” stamp sets…

To create this beautiful card, you simply stamp directly onto the Woodland embossing folder with the pines from the Wonderland stamp set. Be sure you stamp on the “raised” side of the folder (the trees will be recessed on the side you stamp on).

Silent Night is stamped on vellum in Mossy Meadow and tucked behind your embossed front … I also used Mossy Meadow to mat the front and highlight the beautiful color.

For the inside of the card, we stamped the trees from “Happy Scenes” into the corner and the verse from “Wonderland” into the center. I love how many of the stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! coordinate together.

Hope you enjoyed my card …

  1. I have that same embossing folder. How did you get the trees stamped behind the embossed ones without destroying the embossed ones

    • Hi Sherrie ~
      You stamp the pine trees directly onto the embossing folder … make sure you stamp on the side where the trees are sunken into the plastic and not up. When you stamp the pines onto the flat surface and then emboss … it appears as if the pines are behind the trees! Cool right! And just think, you can use this technique on other embossing folders as well. I hope that helped …Have fun.

    • Thank You Evelyne … I am so glad you like the card and now you know how to make it too! It’s really easy … I’m going to try it with some other stamps and folders as well. Stay tuned! Thanks again. Linda

  2. I’m having trouble with the ink beading and then not getting a good stamp impression. Some branches are ok. Did you have any trouble like this? I really love this card.

    • Hi Bernie,
      I used the “new” ink pads … the ink is a bit thicker so it leaves a nice impression, however, you cannot push too hard. I have not tried it with the older ink pads. The beading might be coming from the older ink, not sure, I have not used them on the folders, but I can understand it since we’re stamping onto plastic.

      I hope this helps you. I’m glad you liked my card… thanks.

      Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
      Linda
