Retro vibe Christmas card made in purple and gold unsing Stampin' Up! Spruced Up bundle and Festive Foils Specialty Paper

Welcome it is so nice to see you!  Today I am continuing with my Spruced Up project share.  This time I have a very different, kinda retro card to share with you.  I went completely non-traditional colours and brought in lots of foil to create a really unique card to share with you.

I also used a few elements from the Santa Express Memories & More card pack … which if you haven’t checked out yet, you must!  It is an absolutely fabulous collection of cards, stickers, wooden elements & printed window sheets – I wish that I had discovered it sooner 😉.  I’ll be live on my Facebook page tonight at 7:00pm (PST) for my weekly Tutorial Tuesday and have another card that features elements of this pack and of course, the Spruced Up bundle!

To learn how I have created today’s card scroll down to the “Let’s Make It” section and at the bottom of today’s post you will also see a list of all of the products I used.   Each product has a link to make it easy for you to take a closer look at the products from my online store.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Wishing you a wonderful day and Happy Stamping!!

Let’s Make this Retro Spruced Up Joy Card!

 

  • Cut a Thick Basic Whitecard base (11 x 4-1/4) then score in half (5-1/2) and fold to create your side fold card
  • Add a panel of the Gold Festive Foils Specialty paper to the front of the card
  • Cut a piece of Gorgeous Grape Designer Series Paper from the Brights Collection and adhere on a slight angle to the specialty paper
  • Layer a Basic White stitched rectangle on to a piece of (dark, almost purple) Silver Foil paper, then attach to the card front
  • Die cut 4 gifts from the Spruced Up Outlines dies – 2 from gold foil and 2 from the same colour silver foil used in the step above – adhere with multipurpose glue or adhesive sheets to the stitched rectangle
  • Punch out a oval from the Double Oval punch out of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and adhere to the card using stampin’ dimensionals
  • Attach the wooden snowflake, ‘joy’ and little star from the Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack to the card using multipurpose glue
  • Add a few gold Festive Pearls for a little more sparkle and bling!
  • Add some love to the inside of your card by stamping on a layer (4 x 5-1/4) of Basic White cardstock and attaching it inside… take a peek below to see how I decorated mine!
