Hi, I love the Christmas Cheer stamp set and wish I could use it all the time but I try not to have favourites with my stamp sets. I don’t want any to feel unloved. I have also created a video tutorial for this clean and simple card on the YouTube channel. You can watch the video HERE. Make sure you give the video a big thumbs up, leave a comment and subscribe to the YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on any other video tutorials.
Stamping & Diecutting
I stamped all four turns of the Christmas Cheer turnabout with black ink onto kraft cardstock, and diecut a bauble shape with an Avery Elle die making sure the “joy” is just off center. Then I thought I could use the “joy” as part of my sentiment.
To add some more interested to the white card panel I embossed with a Lawn Fawn die to give just a little texture. To emboss with the Big Shot. I used Tab 1, a cutting plate, a tan embossing mat, the card with the die and a cutting plate. It is possible to emboss with your dies on other diecutting machines. To complete the sentiment I stamped the smallest letters from the Perfectly Penned stamp set to spell “to the world”
I wanted to add a bit more dimension to the bauble, this is a very white clean card so the dimension on the bauble will just add a small amount of interest. I diecut two more baubles from kraft card and layered them together and adhered them to the card. Because of this layering I need to add two pieces of card behind the left side of the sentiment strip so that it is level with the bauble and won’t get crushed in the post.
Finishing The Cards
For a bit more sparkle (this is a Christmas card – I think all Christmas cards should have sparkle) I used the clearer sequins and confetti pieces from the Warm Golden Glow sequin shaker mix. These sequins add a iridescent shine to the card and the Jewel Picker really helps to pick them up and place them down.
What do you think of this Christmas card? What’s your favourite Christmas stamp set for 2017?
