Earlier in the fall I held my Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat. The theme was Farmhouse Christmas and I used that suite of products for the little gifts and all the projects we made. I don’t think that I ever shared them here on my blog. Many of the projects were inspired from other other demonstrator ideas or from decor or crafty ideas I found online. Places like Pinterest and Instagram and magazines provide lots of inspiration. I have 12 different projects to share so I thought I would do a 12 days of Farmhouse Christmas!
So here we go with day 1 – this card idea came from a non-Stampin’ Up! card that I found online. It’s similar to another layout that I’ve used quite a bit lately.
For this card I’ve used the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper, Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine, and the Galvanized Buttons from the Festive Farmhouse Suite. The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set – I just love the size of this and the mixed fonts. I think the Sprig punch also fits well in this suite of products although you will find it with the Joyous Noel suite in the Holiday Catalog.
- Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper
- Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine
- Galvanized Buttons
- Merry Christmas to All stamp set
- Sprig Punch
- Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock
- Very Vanilla Card Stock
- Memento Black ink
- Mossy Meadow Card Stock
- Mini glue dots
- Paper Snips
For this card the measurements are
- Very Vanilla Thick card stock 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″
- Designer Series Paper 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
- Very Vanilla card stock 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
Adhere the Designer Series Paper to the front of the Very Vanilla Thick card base. Stamp the sentiment on the Very Vanilla layer at an angle in the corner of the card stock. Then adhere that layer to the front of the card so that the words are straight and the layer hangs off the edge of the card. Use Paper Snips to trim off the excess around the edge of the card front. Punch three sprigs and attach with glue dots to the card. The button is also added with a glue dot.
This one actually turned out to be my favorite card from the 8 that we made. It’s another card design that would be easy to switch out the designer paper for other designs.
