We are showing Christmas cards during our hops and I am showing you all the last of the cards that I did with my stamp club this month. I really like this stamp set! So easy to use and makes beautiful Christmas cards!

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • On another piece of Crumb Cake, stamp the pine bough image from Ornamental Pine using Garden Green and Early Espresso
  • Use the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and stamp "snow" over the pine bough with Whisper White craft ink
  • Run a piece of Crumb Cake through the Big Shot using the Ovals framelits
  • Sponge the inside of the oval with Whisper White craft ink and a sponge then adhere to the card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the pinecone image onto a piece of Soft Suede using Early Espresso ink and cut out then use the splatter image and Whisper White ink and stamp over the pinecone then adhere to card
  • Stamp the greeting onto a strip of Crumb Cake and flag the end
  • Wrap a piece of linen thread around the strip and tie a bow then adhere to card
  • Add two snowflakes from the frosted sequins to the card and adhere rhinestones to the snowflake centers
