My Christmas Card


This is my Christmas card that I sent out this year.  Before I go any further, I need to apologize.  Apparently I used a retired stamp set in this card by accident.  I thought it was still on the carry over list but only the punches are still available.  The retired set is called Merry Minis (I used it to make the stars).  It is still a cute stamp set, even though it is retired.

I stamped the wreath from the stamp set called Daydream Medallions (it is still current!).  The Peace stamp is from a set that is on the carry over list called Greetings of the Season.  The embossing folder I used is from the Holiday Catalog and is called Stylish Stripes.  Remember, the last day to order from the Holiday Catalog is January 2nd.

Christmas Club Part 3 (and Last!)

I was saving the best for last.  This is one of my favorite cards we made at our Christmas Club meetings.  I love the stamp set Merry Minis and the matching punch set.  If you look back on our earlier posts you will see we used this set a total of three times.  Of course, I also had to use More Merry Messagse!

Merry Minis

You can’t tell very well by the picture but some of the ornaments are raised up by using Dimensionals.  This is another product that you can not do without.  Believe me, I have seen the ones that other stores sell and they are horrible compared to Stampin Up’s Dimensionals.  You get 300 in a pack that should last a very long time (except in my case since I use them so much!).

My Club Members are going to make a Christmas card to share at our next meeting.  I think it is time for another contest.  The first three Club Members who comment on this post AND bring a card to share at our December meeting will get a prize.  Last month we had one.  Hopefully we will get more this month.

Quick & Easy Christmas Gift Bag

The last project our club did this month was to make this easy Christmas gift bag.

We made it using the Big Shot die called Fancy Favor Bigz XL.  You just pop in the card stock, roll it through the Big Shot and Voila!  You have a gift bag.  Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without adding some sparkle with Stampin Up Silver Glimmer Paper.  We finished it off with some Gumball Green 3/8″ Satin Stitch Ribbon.

Stamp-A-Stack Part Three

The last card we mad at our Christmas Card Class was CASE’d from jkcards.  Justin (I know!  Men like Stampin Up too! Can you believe that??) makes the most beautiful cards.  He is very talented.  His card is a little different then mine because he used different stamps but I still got the idea from him.  My card uses the Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set as the branches.  The ornaments are from Merry Minis and the Merry Mini Punch Pack.  The sentiment is from More Merry Messages which is in the annual catalog.  It has 10 different holiday sayings that can be used inside and outside your cards.

Christmas Card Class Part One

Late last month I had the first of three Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stacks classses.  The group made 12 Christmas Cards (4 of 3 designs).  We had a great time.  I really need to start taking pictures of our meetings and classes so I can post them on here.

Here are the cards we made:
