On the CASE: Christmas Quilt
One thing I really love about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination of all the colors – even better is the coordination of product suites. These are a collection of papers, stamps, dies, embellishments and other products that are all designed to work together flawlessly. The Christmas Quilt suite is one of those! The suite includes the following:
- Christmas Quilt photopolymer stamp set & Quilt Builder Framelit Dies (buy as a bundle and save 10%)
- Quilted Christmas 1/4″ ribbon
- Quilted Christmas 6x6 Designer Series Paper
- Stitched Felt Embellishments
- Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
- Quilted Christmas Cardstock pack
Add some coordinating inks and some Whisper White cardstock, and you can make just about everything on page 4 of the Holiday Catalog!

On the CASE Notes
(your step-by-step guide)
This time, I built the card from bottom layers to top layers, stamping, cutting & embossing along the way.
**programming note: I tried the Whisper White panel at 2 1/4″, but that was too long. If you follow the instructions and measurements, yours will turn out more like the catalog sample.
BASE & DSP PIECES
- Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
- Adhere the Garden Green cardstock panel.
- Emboss the 2″ Whisper White piece with the Quilt Top TIEF
- Adhere the quilted Whisper White piece, about 1/2″ up from the bottom. I preferred to add this piece with the bumps facing down, but you can do it either way!
- Fussy cut three trees from the tree patterned DSP.
- Trim off a strip (2 squares wide) of the red plaid patterned DSP.
- Adhere the small strip of red plaid DSP above the Whisper White, and adhere the tree cutouts as shown.
- Stamp two tree images on Whisper White, using Garden Green ink.
- Stamp the inside tree image – on one tree use Lemon Lime Twist, on the other use Pool Party.
- Stamp the stitched border in Real red. Also stamp the tree base image in Real Red.
- Diecut the trees, tree base and a red star.
SENTIMENT & FINAL ASSEMBLY
- Use a Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker to color in just the word “merry” from the sentiment. Stamp on the piece of Pool Party.
- Clean the stamp, then color in the word “Christmas” and stamp.
- Stamp stitching across the bottom of the card on the Garden Green, using Garden Green ink. You don’t need to go all the way across since the sentiment will cover it. Just add a single stamp off to the right. It doesn’t need to look perfect.
- Pop up the sentiment with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Add the two stamped trees as shown.
- Add the stamped tree base, Stitched Felt tree (use glue dots for best results), and star.
How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?
Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – Every time I pick a card to CASE I find that there’s tons of little steps. Again, it’s not difficult to do with the measurements and steps, so, in reality, this card could take just a few minutes.
