Season's Greetings - Words of Cheer - Casually Crafting Design Team Blog Hop September 2021

Hello and welcome back. Today I have a card for the Casually Crafting Design Team September 2021 Blog Hop. This month we have a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge. I selected the first column for with "Christmas, Foliage & Green" for my card today.

So who are we?

The Casually Crafting Design Team are a group of Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from around the world that want to share our love of crafting with you all. We all love simple and easy cards, so you will see cards that are ideally suited for beginners and casual crafters. Sometimes we will also be showing stepped up versions for the more avid crafter.

We will sharing what we love every 3rd Saturday of the month. Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's creative projects using the links below. 

For this month, I decided to share a card using the Words of Cheer Stamp Set. The background was created using stamped images from this set which were heat embossed with Gold and Silver Embossing Powder. The main floral image was fussy cut and coloured with Stampin' Blends.


- Use a piece of Basic White card A4/Letter cut in half lengthwise and folded. Use a smaller piece of Soft Succulent card and attach with Stampin' Dimensionals.. 

- Stamp the leaves from the Words of Cheer using Versamark Ink onto a piece of Evening Evergreen. Heat emboss with Gold and Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder. Stamp the main floral image from this set onto a piece of Basic White using Tuxedo Ink. Fussy cut the image, although if you have a die cutting machine you could use the coordinating dies. Colour with Stampin' Blends (listed below). Attach the floral image to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

- Cut a piece of Real Red Sheer Ribbon in half lengthwise. Use one of the cut pieces with a piece of Gold Simply Elegant Trim and tie into a double bow and attach to the card using a Mini Glue Dot.

- Stamp a sentiment from the Words of Cheer stamp set using Evening Evergreen ink onto strip of Basic White card. Cut the sentiment up to create two pieces and attach the sentiment to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add some Wonderful Gems to the flowers and the card finish the card.


- Basic White base A4/Letter cut in half lengthwise and folded

- Soft Succulent: A4
 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"/ 14.4 cm x 10 cm or Letter 4" x 5 1/4"
