Today I’ll show you How to make a thinking of you card with Christmas Stamps. I got the idea because I’ve been doing so many Christmas cards and had the stamps already on my desk. But it is time to switch gears and make non Christmas cards.
Pulling some supplies from my stash I knew I could make a great Thinking of You card with these Christmas Stamps. I used the Script embossing folder from Cuttlebug, the embossing diffuser from Tim Hotz, gold and metallic green embossing powder, Versa Mark ink, Tim Hotlz Distressed ink and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Cork, Coffee Shop and Blarney.
The paper used was bright white cardstock and some textured green cardstock that was in my stash. I have so much paper that I have no idea where the green came from. My goal this past year was to use up as much of my stash has I can. I’ve been making progress, but I still have lots of stuff to use!
The top piece is cut at 3 inches square and then a green layer 3.25 inches. The next white layer was 4 inches by 5.25 inches. The last green layer was just shy of 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches. This last layer I like to make just a tad smaller than my standard A2 card (8.5 x 5.5 card folded in half).
Not sure where I got the Thinking of you stamp. Wish that stamp companies would print their names on the sheets of acrylic stamps. When the packaging is gone you don’t know where it came from unless you were smart and remembered to write it down or place the items in a notebook. Silly me forgot to do that. lol
There is a video of the whole process, please watch and let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
Now that you know How to make a thinking of you card with Christmas Stamps, what will you make?
