Stampin' Up Rustic Retreat Merry Christmas Slim Line Card


Today's card features Stampin' Up Rustic Retreat stamp set in my first ever slim line card.

I started with an Early Espresso card base scored and folded in half.  I adhered a piece of Stampin' Up Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper to the card front.

I stamped the image from Stampin' Up Rustic Retreat stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I die cut the image with Stampin' Up Stitched Shapes die set.  I die cut a piece of Early Espresso with Stampin' Up Layering Oval dies.  

I adhered the image to the Early Espresso Die and adhered it to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I die cut some pine leaves with Stampin' Up Beautiful Boughs die set.  I layered them under the die cuts on the front of the card.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla.  I punched the end with Stampin' Up Pick a Punch.  I cut a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock to layer under the sentiment.  

I adhered the sentiment to the card front.  

I completed the card with a sentiment from Stampin' Up Rustic Retreat stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I stamped images in Early Espresso and Mossy Meadows ink.  I took my blender pen to color in the deer image.
