Christmas in July 2024: Project #1

How can Stampin' Up!® outdo themselves with each and every new product release?

I ask myself that question with every release, and then it happens: even more amazing products. On Wednesday, July 3, we get a new product release in the new Online Exclusives. In my first Christmas in July project, I decided to use lots of my favorite new products, including products from the Season of Green & Gold Suite Collection...

...and the Frosted Forest bundle, which includes the Frosted Forest stamp set, the Frosted Forest Dies, and the Frosted Forest Decorative Masks.

I made the fun fold simply by adhering two folded pieces of Old Olive cardstock together. The first was a piece 4 1/4" x 10", and it was scored at 1 1/2", 3", and 6 1/2". After accordion folding that, I could then add the piece of 2 1/4" x 8 1/2", which I had scored at 5 1/2". After jazzing it up with products shown above, here's the final result:

The back of the card really gives away exactly how this card was put together...

I even added a little masked tree on the inside of the card. Although I added a piece of 4" x 3 1/4" on the inside of the card, isn't it great how you don't have to write much on the inside? 🤣 There's no room!

I just love how rich these new products can look. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) sure adds a lot. Even the small pieces of plaid on the front panel really help make this card what it is. Those pieces are 3/4" x 1 1/4" in size. The two pieces of plaid DSP that flank the card's tall, focal panel, measure 3/4" x 3 1/4". Finally, the panel of DSP in the center measures 2" x 5 1/4". Both pieces come from The Season of Green & Gold DSP but don't even show off the gold foiled side of the paper.

Yes, the Designer Series Paper is gorgeous. But we can't forget to chat for a second about the absolutely beautiful possibilties of the Frosted Forest bundle. I used masks A, B, and C from the Frosted Forest Decorative Masks to create the tree image on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock.

  • Mask A: a light version of Old Olive ink, using a Small Blending Brush

  • Mask B: dark Old Olive ink, using the same Small Blending Brush

  • Mask C: Embossing Paste, dragged over the mask using a Palette Knife

I ended up heating the Embossing Paste with my Heat Tool after it was applied, so as to hopefully keep the "snow" as white as possible, instead of taking on the color of the tree it was on.
