Christmas Cutie


Stampin' Up - Christmas Cuties



                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  This stamp is definitely appropriately named as a "Christmas Cutie".  I stamped the image on white 110lb coverstock.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I created the base of the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" side folding card by first folding it it half and then cutting off 1 7/8" from the cover piece. I covered the top flap with a piece of yellow cardstock measuring 3 1/2" x 4 1/4". I also covered the inside back piece with a piece of yellow cardstock measuring 2" x 4 1/4". I covered this inside piece using red Magic mesh and cut it to size before adhering this yellow piece to the card base.

I colored this cutie using the following color guide:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               I used the stampin up adorning accents edgelits to create the red border detail. To create this I used the scalloped border and secured it to red cardstock using washi tape and the moved the die down a 1/4" secured it with washi tape and then ran it through the big shot again. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              I used the same die to cut a matching border on a piece of striped paper from the Bo Bunny Surprise! Collection 6x6 paper pad. I then secured the red border to this piece, and cut the striped piece to a width of approximately 3/4" by 4 1/4".
I cut a piece of the same red cardstock 3 1/4" x 4 1/8" to create a base for the image. I cut the image 3" x 3 1/4". I used my Stampabilities Happy Birthday #1 stamp for the sentiment and used Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler ink pad to stamp the "Happy Birthday" on white cardstock that I then cut to 7/8" x 2 7/8". I cut a red border piece 1" x 3" using the red cardstock. I secure the sentiment to the card base only where it met up with the top piece and not the overhang.
