I thought I'd start with a relatively simple card. This one uses one piece of card stock for the body and one for a mat to back it on. There are two stamps involved, both from the Season of Joy set.
The most complicated part of this card is the two colors used in the inside image.
The next step is the 3/4-inch Circle Punch. I punched a circle from scrap and then holding the card closed, I loosely adhered* the scrap over the snowflake as I held it up to the light (the stamped image from the inside is easy to see through the front).
*To do this, I took a piece of double-stick tape, stuck it against my jeans a few times to lose some stickiness and then adhered it to my scrap.
Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Stamps: Season of Joy (#110384)
Papers: Whisper White and Baja Breeze card stocks
Inks: Cherry Cobbler Classic and Baja Breeze Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, 3/4-inch Circle Punch, Stamp-a-Ma-Jig (I'm a klutz, so I need this to make my images straight), scrap paper
Thank you for your visit! I hope this series of posts will provide you with some inspiration as we begin to prepare for the Christmas holidays.
