Here is a quick and easy but cute Christmas card you can make in a short time.
Plaid is very in this year and the Buffalo Check background stamp is perfect for making a plaid background in any color. This stamp works best in your Stamparatus because if it doesn’t come out perfectly, you can just stamp it again and again until it does. Unfortunately, I did not use my Stamparatus but instead inked the stamp facing up using Memento Ink and laid my Real Red cardstock on top and rubbed. As you can see I miss a couple of spots but I thought it made it kind of rustic looking so I left it alone.
The sentiment is made from a couple of dies in the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies set with Silver Foil Sheets. I love big fonts so I knew I had to purchase it. There are four different words (the other two are Holidays and Happy) plus there are two dies that cut out the sentiments from the matching stamp set. This stamp set is called Merry Christmas To All (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle).
The snowflakes were cut out using the Blizzard Thinlits Die also using the Silver Foil Sheets. I love this die because it cuts out a whole sheet of snowflakes at once. You can use the snowflakes or the negative. I used the negative on this card.
Last Thursday I showed you a card I made using the new Blizzard Thinlits Die that is in the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. Today I made a card using all those snowflakes that this die cut out. Yes, one die cuts out all those snowflakes and more. I didn’t even use them all on this card.
I decided to make this card with a little bling. I haven’t used bling in a while. You kind of have to do it when making Christmas cards because Christmas is so full of bling. After adhering the snowflakes onto the cardstock I put a rhinestone in the middle of each one.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called Merry Christmas to All. I first stamped it in Versamark and then used Silver Embossing Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool. I then backed the piece of cardstock to Silver Foil Paper before adhering that to the Night Of Navy card base.
Now that I have all the birthdays taken care of for a little bit, it is time to concentrate on the amazing 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog that began September 1st. There are so many fabulous products in this catalog that it was hard to choose which ones to get first and then choose which one to show first.
I decided to go with the Blizzard Thinlits Die. This die has a matching stamp set (usually I am talking about these Bundles the other way around – stamp set first, then die) called Beautiful Blizzard. I did not use the stamp set on this card but I did use the die. The Blizzard Thinlits Die is one big die that cuts out a background of snowflakes. I used it on Night Of Navy cardstock and then adhered it to a Balmy Blue card base. The die looks like this:
The sentiments are from another new Bundle that is in the Holiday Catalog. The stamp set is called Merry Christmas To All and has all the words you could ever want for a Holiday Card. The matching Dies are called Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. It has four large words you can cut out as well as two label dies.
After cutting out all those snowflakes with one die I bet you are wondering what I did with them all. Tune in on Monday to find out!
