An Easy Christmas Around the World CASE

Christmas Around the World

While I was working on this week’s On the CASE with Ann & Nicole, I whipped up this little card, which is a CASE of one of the Christmas Around the World cards found in the Holiday Catalog.  It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s cute. So that you can make it even more quickly than I did, I’ll provide you with the measurements I used.   Have fun whipping up some fast holiday cards!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
A Quick Mini-Tutorial

Cut the paper as follows:

Soft Sky Cardstock:  4-1/4″ x 11″
Crumb Cake Cardstock: 3-3/4″ wide x 5″ high
Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper: 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ (4-3/8″ print #1, 3/4″ plaid)
Real Red Cardstock: 1-1/4″ x 3-7/8″

1. Score the Soft Sky cardstock at 5-1/2″ to form the card base.

2. Adhere the plaid print to the back of the cute holiday print designer series paper.  Trim to a length of 4-7/8″.   Mat this onto the Crumb Cake cardstock, and adhere to the card base.

3.  Ink  the “Lines” image from the Brightly Lit Christmas stamp set with VersaMark ink.  Randomly stamp the Real Red cardstock. Snip the ends into a banner.  Adhere to the card base. (You can also use Real Red ink, if you prefer.)

4. Adhere a loop of Real Red 1/8″ ribbon to the banner.  Using dimensionals, add a small Silver Metallic Doily.  Adhere a Christmas Around the World wooden Present embellishment on top.  (I used a dimensional…you can also glue it on. )

5.  Snip “Season’s Greetings” from the Christmas Greetings paper (from the Christmas Around the World Collection).  “Pop” atop the doily using dimensionals.  There are other greetings on this paper which would be cute to use, too.

You’re done.  How quick and easy was that?

As always, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away.  Until next time…

    I agree with Mary’s comment, I was trying to figure out how to use this pattern. Actually, I can say I really like this whole pack though a couple sides aren’t my favorites. The cars and trucks just reminded me of when I was little, well I am still short, living in our old house in Burlington. I could peak out the living room window and see just a bit of the corner where the old Sears store was and the old bridge on 6th St. and the big hill going up to Washington St. OK now you have an idea of where we lived when I was young. Anyway, I could peer out and see the decorated stop lights and street lights and see the cars and trucks with trees on them occasionally. It was fun to see the snow coming down completing the picture. There used to be Santa’s house and a tree lot on Washington St. I could see the old mailbox too sitting on the corner just like in the DSP. Our neighbor would have the boys make a snowman on our side of their house and she had a red wagon by it with presents on it – probably empty boxes but it was to make me smile she said rather than just looking at the big white house next door. They put all their glorious decorations on the front and south side of the house. So, this paper and your card has created a memory for me I had sort of forgotten. I had forgotten about the little snowman and the wagon which she did a couple times. Now, I need to recreate this just for me! I did buy the little wooden embelishments too not knowing what I wanted to do with them. Or, you could just save me the trouble and send me the nostalgic card! Just kidding, maybe!

  2. That is one of my favorite patterns (the retro cars) from the dsp collection and I haven’t figured out how to use it. Your card is perfection and inspires me.
