The Christmas holiday is quickly approaching, so it’s time to start sharing some Christmas Card ideas for you stampers out there.
This is the first of several to come, so check back often to see some new Christmas cards.
And now, here’s Christmas Card #1…
How To Make This Card
One of my favorite color combinations is red and celery.
I wanted the inside of the card to be vibrant, so I put the card ‘topper’ on red cardstock and stamped my message using white pigment (craft) ink.
Just remember to let it dry completely before handling. The pigment ink takes longer to dry.
This Christmas card was created using the following products:
- Stampin Up Cardstock – Real Red, Whisper White, Certainly Celery
- Stampin Up Stamp Sets – Ho-Ho-Holidays, Crazy for Christmas
- Extras – Pastels, Gingham Ribbon, Hemp Twine
I poked 2 small holes on the front of the card for the twine. Tape the ends down on the back of the card, and then attach to the folded red cardstock — no one will ever see the ends of the twine.
I almost always use Stampin’ Up products, but this look can be achieved using other products as well.
Other DIY Christmas Cards
I live in Brentwood, Tennessee and write about fun things to see & do there. I also enjoy using rubber stamps and scrapbooking materials to make my own cards. I use Stampin’ Up products for a lot of my handmade cards.
