Here is a fun fold Christmas card make from the Cup of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Cup of Cheer Dies along with the pretty Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (DSP). The cup was stamped with Shaded Spruce classic ink; the poinsettia was stamped with Cherry Cobbler classic ink and colored in with the Cherry Cobbler Watercolor Pencil. I also used the blender pen to even out the color. After cutting out the cup and the poinsettia with the dies from the Cup of Cheer Die set, I went over the poinsettia with the Clear Wink of Stella to make it sparkle. The poinsettia was adhered flat on the mug. The two pieces of the candy cane was also cut out from the dies in the Cup of Cheer die set and adhered together with some small dots of multipurpose liquid glue.
Adhere your Night of Navy cardstock to the Gold Foil but do not adhere it to the card until you adhere the candy cane and the mug. The mug is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The inside is very simple with just holly/berries in the corners and a simple sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas set stamped with Shaded Spruce ink. I used the Shaded Spruce and the Cherry Cobbler Watercolor Markers to color the holly/ berries and huffed on the ink to moisten it before stamping it on the card stock.

This is one of the cards we made in my classes this past weekend and had lots of fun creating and putting this together. I’m pleased with the way this card turned out and everyone in class loved it too. The Cup of Christmas Stamp Set and coordinating Cup of Cheer dies are sold separately, but if purchased as a bundle, you will save 10%.
This is a fun set to have in your collection as its not only for Christmas but can also be used all year. There are many possibilities with this set and the stamps are reversible. What do I mean by that? You can stamp the mug with the handle on the right ,and if you turn the stamp over, you can stamp the mug with the handle on the left and there are dies in the set that will cut it out both ways. How cool is that?!?!? This is the very first time Stampin’ Up! has created a reversible stamp and I like it. I hope you like this Cup of Christmas bundle as much as I do, and if you add this bundle to your collection, I know you’ll have lots of fun creating with it.
