Is your to-do list growing as the holidays get closer?!? I have the last of my Christmas Cards to complete and send out this week and my decorating is done! Christmas cookies were made this past weekend so gifts is all I have left! I’m feeling good and hoping to just enjoy the season as much as possible! This fun Double Mountain Card may look a bit stressful but I assure you it’s pretty easy!
If you look at it from the side, this card is simply 2 card bases stuck together. There is a regular Early Espresso card base (4-1/4″ x 11″) and then a slightly smaller Real Red (4″ x 10-3/4″) card base adhered upside down to the Early Espresso base. See that’s not so overwhelming!
After I got my 2 card bases prepped, I adhered the Real Red card base upside down and all the way to the bottom of the front of the Early Espresso card base. The folded edge of the Real Red cardstock should be flush with the bottom of the Early Espresso card front. Next, I folded the Real Red in half back down to create a small mountain of Real Red and a tall mountain of Early Espresso/Real Red. Then I adhered the Frosted Gingerbread Designer Paper to the layer of Real Red on Early Espresso and tied some Real Red Ruffle Ribbon around the card front.
Next, I stamped the greeting from the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set on the small Basic White piece (3 ¾” x 2 ½”) and stamped the lace trim image on the inside Basic White piece (4” x 5 ¼”). Then adhered both to the card. For the focal point, you can die cut or fussy cut an image of your choice from the Designer Paper and adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Decorate with Acrylic Shapes to finish it off!
