Coming Home and Trimming the Town with Stampin’ Up!

Coming Home Handmade Christmas Card

Hello Friends,

Have you seen the new Stampin’ Up! 2020 Holiday Catalog yet?  It is amazing! I want nearly everything in it! (Click on the catalog image in the right-hand column to view it.) I made this card with one of the darling new suites-The Trimming the Town Suite on page 25 and I think it is one of the all-time favorite cards.

Coming Home Handmade Christmas CardThe Trimming the Town Suite captures the feel of a hometown holiday with its whimsical imagery and coordinating trimmings. The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper is full of cozy village and winter scenes.  Some of the images can be cut out with the Home Together Dies, as well as images in the Coming Home Stamp Set.

This card was so fast and easy to make.  I used part of one of the designer papers for the background and die-cut some of the images from another sheet of paper. The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper package contains 12 sheets of 12″ x  12″ double-sided paper (2 each of 6 different designs.)

Each year, Stampin’ Up! donates some of the sales from certain products to charities.  This year, whether you purchase the Coming Home Stamp Set individually or as part of a bundle or suite collection, $3 from the sale will be donated to charities devoted to adoption, foster care, and infertility. Not only will you have fun using it, you will be making a difference!

Coming Home Handmade Christmas CardProject Recipe:

  1. Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2″ by 8-1/2″, score in the middle, and fold for the card base.

  2. Adhere a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Misty Moonlight Cardstock to the card base.

  3. Cut the piece of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper at the top to 3-3/4″ x 5″ so the mountains are showing as you can see above.  This is the sheet of paper I used:

  4. Stamp your greeting at the top of the Trimming the Town DSP panel in Misty Moonlight Ink. (I used a greeting from the retire Six Sayings Stamp Set, but you could use any of your favorite Holiday greetings.)  Adhere this piece to the card front.

  5. Die-cut a Misty Moonlight large house and a large green tree from the piece of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper with the matching Home Together Dies. Cut out the smaller tree with Paper Snips. Adhere these to the card front over the existing printed images on the paper with Stampin’ Diminsionals.  Here is the paper I used for this step:Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper

  6. Add several Snowflake Adhesive-Backed Embellishments to the card front.
