Christmas Stocking Card

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on my blog but I’ve been busy! I just got a large invitation order out the door, my work schedule has been more hectic than usual, and I just now had a minute to come up for air! It’s almost time to get Christmas cards in the mail so I decided to make one to get the juices flowing.

This card uses Cherry Cobbler base with a Chocolate Chip textured card stock layer. The stockings were made with the Stocking Punch. I used Very Vanilla card stock and Silver Glimmer Paper. I ran the Vanilla pieces through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to make them look like knitted stockings. The band around the silver stocking is Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon from the Holiday Mini catalog. The ribbon is so nice and soft, I’d like to make a card that features more of it.

The sentiment is my favorite Christmas one from Christmas Greetings, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  Around the edge of the card, I used the Signo Gel Pen to create a faux stitched effect and to frame out the card front.

Thanks for looking. Hopefully I’ll be back sooner rather than later! My schedule has by no means lightened up but I’ll do my best to keep up!

Simple and Sweet Snowglobe Christmas Card


This is a sample Christmas card I made for my sister using Sweet Snowglobe from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It’s a single stamp, offered for $8.95 and it coordinates with the Sweet Treat Cups. Since this is going to be mailed, I decided not to use the cups (postage for 40+ cards would be crazy!)

For the base, I used Real Red Textured Card stock, layered with Old Olive and Whisper White. The top corners of each layer were rounded with the Corner Chomper, but you could also use the Corner Rounder Punch on the two single layers.

I used the SU Markers to color the snowglobe (Real Red, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Old Olive). Then, I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the snowy parts with the 2 Way Glue Pen.

To continue the glittery theme, I added 3 Glimmer Brads (in Real Red, Old Olive, and Soft Suede–Brights and Neutrals collection). By using the cropadile, I made sure each brad would be lined up.

Across the top, I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings in Real Red ink, paper pierced below it and added some Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon.

The White layer is adhered with stampin dimensionals to the base.

And yes, I know it’s September and I just made a Christmas card. It’s a sickness!

Christmas Card Idea: Making a Wreath with a Snowflake Stamp

11_18 003 copy

I’m sure you’ve seen the cards with wreaths made using snowflake stamps. I decided to try it using the snowflake from Season of Friendship.

On Whisper White card stock, I stamped the snowflake in Old Olive ink repeatedly around in a circle until I was happy with the fullness and shape of my wreath. Then, I stamped the berries from Berry Christmas in Real Red ink randomly around the wreath. With my glue pen, I dotted some glue on the berries and sprinkled on Romantic Red Glitter.

The wreath is hanging by the bow stamp from Berry Christmas in Real Red ink. Below it, I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings in Real Red ink.

Using the corner rounder punch, I rounded the corners of the whisper white and layered it onto a piece of Real Red textured card stock.  As for the base, I layered Old Olive with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of vellum, which I stamped using the snowflake stamp from Season of Friendship in Old Olive ink.
