5 minute Hand-stamped Christmas Card

Hello from designer, Heidi.  This card comes from a last-minute need to send a Christmas card.  Someone send me a card this year, and I hadn’t yet sent them one.  I LOVE receiving cards, so even though my stash is depleted, I want to make them a card, too.


This card literally took me less than 5 minutes.  I used the set of 4 snowflakes in the Snowflakes Mini Cube set and a really beautiful saying, Have a Wonderful Christmas.   I first stamped the saying in black.  Then I chose 3 colors of light blue inks and stamped the snowflakes from corner to corner.  I used a glitter pen to add some accents and added some gems. The result is clean and simple, but still handmade!



If I had more time, I would have use some Nuvo glitter drops, but they require dry time, so I went with gems.  You could also easily cut a matted frame for the card front if you don’t have a decorative frame die.  If you don’t have several colors of inkpads, try some water based markers, or use generation stamping to get different tones.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season and Happy Holidays!

  1. I had to do this twice this year, make quick card for someone that sent me one. I wasn't expecting to get a lot of cards, so the surprise ones sent me back to the stamping bench. Next year I have to remember to make some extras, LOL!!
