Hello from design team member, Heidi! It is never too early to start thinking about your holiday cards! I try to make a few each month — it really helps take the stress out of the season. Just for Fun has so many wonderful and unique Christmas stamps in the store and today I am going to showcase a few of them.
The first card idea was made by making a background by layering stamps. I first stamped the Glorious Song stamp with light tan ink and stamped the versatile Silhouette Pines stamp from JFF’s latest release over top using a dark green ink. I colored the Bells & Holly stamp with alcohol markers and fussy cut that to add a vintage looking embellishment to the card. The jingle sentiment was added right to the background
You can see that I loved this card so much I made two while my supplies were out!
The second card idea I would love to share with you uses the same stamps, but this time I heat embossed that Glorious Song music stamp with silver embossing powder on red cardstock. (I have to tell you, that stamp is going to be a workhouse stamp for my Christmas cards, I just love it!) I used the same Bells & Holly image for my focal point, and added my sentiment and some gems to finish the card.
The stamps I used today can be found in the Just for Fun store! Most are available as either a Wood Mounted Stamp, a Cling Mounted Stamp or the economical and space saving Unmounted form. You get to choose!
