Nicole and I are back On the CASE working through current Stampin’ Up! catalogs, breaking down gorgeous samples step-by-step, and providing you with free tutorials so you can CASE your own. This week I am featuring an Alpine Adventure holiday card from the Holiday Catalog. Enjoy!
Alpine Adventure Holiday Card
Holiday Catalog Page 11
The Alpine Adventure set is one I bought not only because I LOVED the sentiments (Jingle All the Way, Christmas Greetings, and my favorite, Let It Snow), but also because the coordinating thinlits are amazing! For today’s On the CASE, I selected the Balmy Blue card on the right. Don’t you simply adore the sled? Enjoy!

“On the CASE” Notes
Your Step-by-Step Guide
1. Score the Balmy Blue cardstock at 5-1/2″ to form the card base. Crease with a bone folder.
2. Emboss the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Balmy Blue panel with the Softly Falling embossing folder. Adhere to the card base.
3. Ink the Snowflake images in Balmy Blue, and randomly stamp the Whisper White panel.
4. Add two strips of Washi Tape to the card base, as shown, and then adhere the stamped panel into position using dimensionals.
5. Die cut the sled from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, the holly leaves from Garden Green cardstock, and the bow from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
6. Adhere the sled to the card.
7. Create a figure eight from Garden Green Baker’s Twine, and adhere with a glue dot.
8. Ink the sentiment in Versamark and heat emboss with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Die cut using the small scalloped thinlit. Adhere to the card with dimensionals.
9. Add the holly leaves and bow to the sentiment using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
Wouldn’t this be a great card to send to anyone during the winter months? I can’t wait to drop this one in the mail once the snow begins to fly!
How Hard Was It to Crack This CASE
Don’t be afraid to give this card a try! It may look intimidating because of the number of steps, but they are all easy. Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5, simply because it does take a little time to create.
Nicole and I hope our projects today inspire you to try CASEing the catalog, too! We’ll be “on the case”, looking for the hashtag #SUontheCASE on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ & Pinterest). If we find one of your projects, we’ll share it, like it, repost it – we’ll do it all!
Now head on over to Nicole at Pixel Maven’s Retreat to see the CASE file she has been working on. Nicole always writes the BEST tutorials! I know what she has CASED this week, and I am sure you will be giving her a big thank you once you see it!
