Evergreen Stampin' Up! Christmas Card

I've been crazy busy this past week!  One of the items on my plate was getting ready for today's Christmas Stamp A Stack.  Happy to report...all is ready!

My goal for a Christmas Stamp A Stack is to make beautiful cards that are easy to duplicate and that don't cost extra to mail.   This is especially important for those of us that send lots of cards.  Are you one with a long list?  How many cards are you planning to send this Christmas?  

This is just one of the four designs that we will be making today.  I wish you could see it in person as the picture really doesn't do it justice.  The color combo is Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.

  • Used the Evergreen Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini.  Stamped off twice before stamping the solid green tree.
  • Stamped the sentiment overlay in Early Espresso.
  • When designing a simple card look to your embossing folders for texture.  This is the Lacy Brocade folder form the Holiday mini.
  • I sprayed the embossed layer with home made shimmer spray. Mix alcohol with a few drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint and shake.  The new Stampin' Spritzers are perfect for mixing and storing homemade shimmer and ink sprays. 

Stamp Set:  (Clear-127973) (Wood-127970)
Ink:  Garden Green (126973), Early Espresso (126974)
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler (119685), Garden Green (102584), Whisper White (100730), Silver Glimmer Paper (124005)
Accessories:  Frost White Shimmer Paint (used to make shimmer spray), rubbing alcohol
Tools:  Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder (127819), Merry Minis Punch Pack (star) (126882)
Big Shot (113474)

Wish you could all spend the day making Christmas cards with us!  If you're local...we will be doing another Christmas Stamp A Stack in September.
