Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog Swap Cards

I am participating in a nationwide demonstrator Mini Catalog card swap this month, and here are the cards I made this week and mailed off. I can’t wait to see the cards I get mailed back to me next month!!

I used the the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season and Holly Jolly Wishes stamp sets from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog to create a quick and easy z-fold Christmas card for the swap, which I am excited to share with you today. 

To make the card, I started by  scoring a piece of 4-1/4″ x 11″ Evening Evergreen cardstock at 2-3/4″ and again at 5-1/2″.  Then I adhered pieces of Painted Christmas DSP to pieces of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and then to the card base on the left and right sides with adhesive (see photo below): 

I stamped the sentiments for the card front and inside the card from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  Then I stamped the images from the Christmas Season stamp set in Evening Evergreen, Pear Pizzazz and Cherry Cobbler inks around the sentiments.

I cut both sentiments out with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then adhered the die cuts to pieces of Cherry Cobbler cardstock with adhesive.  I then adhered the layered die cut panels to the card base.

To finish the card, I added three Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. 

It was super quick and easy to make a big stack of these cards! You could do this card for your Christmas list too!!
