10 Christmas & Non-Christmas Card Ideas with Filigree Embossing Folder

#4 Christmas Card with Filigree Embossing Folder.


This card is quite easy to pull together. I really love the Santa & his Reindeer's stamp!

 Style Tips:

  • I cut the Houses straight out from the Nordic Noel DSP to save time stamping and colouring! And the look is just as lovely - actually, a lot better than my colouring!
  • I Sponged the centre and inside flourishes of the Embossing Folder with Pool Party to give a more realistic look.
  • Glitter just the inside flourishes to make a pretty frame for your centrepiece - I used Two-Way Glue Pen to adhere Dazzling Details Glitter.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! Products I used to Create this Card.

Stamp Set: Holiday Home.
Card Stock & Papers: Whisper White, Real Red, Brushed Gold, Nordic Noel DSP
Ink Pads: Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizazz, Pool Party.
Accessories: Dazzling Details Glitter
Tools: Paper Snips, Big Shot, Filigree Embossing Folder, Itty BittyAccents Punch Pack
Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Two-Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals.

  #4 Non-Christmas Card Idea with Filigree Embossing Folder.

The card base of this card is Elegant Eggplant. I'm new to this colour and I really love it!

You might have noticed that I really love this Stamp Set Too! It's called 'From My Heart' & I've used it in 2 of the other "Non-Christmas Cards with the Filigree Embossing Folder." Just scroll down to see these too.

Style Tips:

  • I got the Colour Combo of Elegant Eggplant & Rose Red from Stampin' Up!'s Colour Coach, which I found really helpful as I hadn't worked with Elegant Eggplant before.
  • To frame the 'Happy Birthday' I punched Elegant Eggplant card stock with the Modern Label Punch, cut it in half long ways and adhered it to the back with Multi Purpose Liquid Glue.
  • I stamped the 'Friendship Please' stamp twice, once in Eggplant, and once in Rose Red. Then just cut the Tea Pot out with my paper snips and adhered it with a Dimensional. 
  • Rounding the Corners of the Friendship Please card piece softens it and made it blend in more with the curves of the Filigree Embossing Folder and the Happy Birthday, which then tied the whole design in together.
  • The gorgeous 'Dot' in the right hand corner is a Candy Dot in Elegant Eggplant. They're self adhesive for ease.

Here's a List of the Stampin' Up! Products I used to Create this Card.

Rubber Stamp Set: From My Heart

10 Christmas & Non-Christmas Ideas with Filigree Embossing Folder.

If you've been following my blog, you'll know I've been counting down from 10 in my series of "10 Different Christmas and Non-Christmas Ideas with Stampin' Up!'s Filigree Embossing Folder." I'm only up to number 3 so I'd better get a move on to post all 10 before Christmas!

Here's # 3 Christmas Idea with Filigree Embossing Folder.

Unfortunately my photo doesn't really show the card off to do it justice, but in the side view photo, you'll get the style of it a little better.
It's similar to an easel card, except that the 'Lip' at the top is holding the card front up instead of the card front being held up by a flat base at the bottom.

Style Tips:

  1. I coloured the Rhinestones with my Blendabilities Markers in Old Olive. Because these markers are Alcohol Markers the ink is permanent, so you can taylor make your own coloured Rhinestones!
  2.  I created the 'Lip' by stamping the image onto Whisper White and die cutting it with the Label Die from Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies, and mounted it on Real Red card stock punched with the Decorative Label Punch. 

Here's #3 Non-Christmas Idea.

I'm just loving the colour, Tangerine Tango! It's bright and fresh and gives lots of  'Pop'! And teams up with Bermuda Bay perfectly.

Style Tips: Dry Embossing, Die Cutting and Punching.

  1. Stamp First
  2. Then Die Cut or Punch
  3. Then, Dry Emboss (put whatever you want to emboss into the Embossing Folder and run through Big Shot).

Easy 'How Too' Instructions
  1. Emboss Tangerine Tango Card Stock with Filigree Embossing Folder and wrap Tangerine Tango Twine around it 3 times as shown in photo. Adhere to White Card Base.
  2. Stamp the Sentiment onto Whisper White Card Stock with Tangerine Tango ink and again in Bermuda Bay ink.
  3. Die cut Tangerine Tango sentiment with die from Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. Emboss with Filigree Embossing Folder as in photo.
  4. Punch 2 Butterflies, 1 with Small Butterfly Punch, and the other using Elegant Butterfly Punch.
  5. Embossed Small Butterfly with Filigree Folder.
  6. Cut 'Enjoying' from Bermuda Bay sentiment and mount with Dimensionals.
  7. Adhere small Butterfly onto larger one, add a Tangerine Tango Candy Dot and mount with Dimensionals onto card.
  8. Add  3 more Tangerine Tango Candy Dots as in photo.
And you're Done!

Hope you've enjoyed today's cards.

Here's a card we made in a class I held a little while ago.
I've used one of my favourite stamp sets, 'Everything Eleanore' (Although I do have many fav's! What can I say, I just love everything Stampin' Up!) The sentiment is from 'Chalk Talk.'(OK another fav'!)
This card is quite easy to make because most of it is Punches and Embossing Folders. The only thing I hand cut was the blue label.  So once you've stamped your images and embossed the frills, it's just a matter of putting it all together.

Sorry this photo us a bit blurry! But you get the idea!
