Merriest Moments White & Red Card & Video

Stampin’ Up Merriest Moments stamp set along with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder is still a favorite of mine, I really like it. Today I’m sharing another card and video showing a red underlayment between the detailed cut & embossed piece and the embossed background. If you scroll down you’ll find a landscaped version of this card. You’ll also see one where I forgot to add the Real Red Underlayment, even our mistakes are beautiful.

The poinsettia’s are very lovely and I love all the different looks of foliage to go along with them. The saying in the card above is from the For Unto Us stamp set, retired from the 2020 holiday catalog. I look forward to discovering with you what I come up with next with this set and maybe combining it with another one. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it.


Let’s Get Started

  1. Cut your card base 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and score on the long side at 4-1/4”. Cut the rest of your cardstock and designer series paper (DSP) according to the sizes listed below under “Cardstock”.
  2. Fold your Thick Basic White Card Base in half on the score line and burnish with Bone Folder.
  3. Emboss one of the 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” White panels with the Merriest Frames Embossing Folder and adhere to Card Front.
  4. Cut out the Real Red Cardstock with the large open Merriest Frame Die that is basically the same shape as the detailed cut out. Adhere to Card Front.
  5. Using the large detailed die cut out the other White Cardstock panel. Line the cut out piece up  with the design in the corresponding Hybrid Embossing Folder and run through the Cut & Emboss machine. Add adhesive to the underneath side of the center rectangle and adhere to card front matching the shape with the Real Red Piece on the step above.
  6. Stamp the Greeting from the Hope & Peace Stamp Set with Real Red Ink and cut out with the rectangle die from the Merriest Frames Dies. Add to card front with Dimensional’s.
  7. The Pointsettia’s where stamped in Real Red Ink,  Boughs in Pool Party Ink, Pine Branches in Evening Evergreen and Holly in Garden Green Ink. Die cut each item with the coordinating dies.
  8. Add the cut out greenry and poinsettia to the upper left hand corner with Glue Dots and Dimensionals. (Hint: lay out the way you want them to go and adhere from the bottom up). The center of Poinsettia is finished with a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot.
  9. On some cards I also added the greenry and floral to the bottom right corner. On the one I did on the video I added greenry and a Red Ribbon. So many choices…
  10. The inside of card was finished with the saying stamped in either Garden Green or Evening Evergreen Ink. The Poinsettias were stamped in Real Red Ink.
  11. Finish the Envelop with a Poinsettia stamped in Real Red Ink on the lower left side. I stamped the dot centers on the poinsettias in Granny Apple Green Ink. On the envelope flap either stamp more poinsettias or add Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper to it.

And now you have a beautiful card to brighten a special someones Christmas Season.

Happy Stamping!
