For my first card below, I am showcasing the Stylish Stockings stamp set and dies. I love this set so much. You can create so many cute Christmas cards and gift tags using this set. Here’s what it looks like:
I stamped my images with different stamp inks on Neenah smooth white card stock and die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I die-cut the window frame and cut my plaid patterned paper to assemble my card. To finish the design, I added the sentiment using the Sentiments of the Season stamp set (revealed on the first day) and added the holly and red berries. Here’s the card:
Here’s another simple card with the Stylish Stockings and Sentiments of the Season:
For my third card, I am showcasing the Reindeer Roll Call Stamp set, and the Acetate Sheets and the Double-Sided Adhesive Foam Sheets by Newton’s Nook. These double-sided adhesive fun foam is a must-have. They are super sticky and very sturdy! You are absolutely going to love this for your shaker cards.
I started out by coloring my card stock with my distress oxide inks (picked raspberry, wilted violet and broken china) with my blending tools. I sprayed water on the colored card stock with my distress sprayer and dabbed it with a dry paper towel. I die-cut this piece using a tag die from my collection. I added the acetate sheet and double-sided adhesive foam to my card front. I finished the design by adding a red ribbon, the jingle bells and the reindeers from the stamp set. This card is so simple but so much fun. Here’s the card:
