Christmas Card 2013 Stampfest

Lynette and I stamped together at her house on Wednesday, Dec. 3.
 For the end cards, using brown cardstock for the base, we cut 3 strips of printed papers 1-1/8" wide 5-1/4" long. We stamped Tim Holtz mini blueprints Christmas tree and toy soldier stamps twice, once on plain paper and the 2nd time using printed papers for the toy soldier and book print scraps for the trees. We fussy cut those. I used dimensional foam to attach. Lynette used double sided tape. We embellished the top layer with stickles. We made our own "background" on the center cards by stamping with a Hero Arts Christmas script.

  
Lynette found inspiration for this card on Pinterest--from Splitcoast stamper zipperc98.
In place of zipperc98's edgelet, we used a border punch punch, then a narrow embossing folder, adding 2 strips of card stock outside of the folder, to prevent the unwanted creased line.

Here is my 2013 Christmas card that Lynette helped me design. Since I send out about 100, it needed to be very simple! 

Materials used:
My Mind's Eye-Lost & Found-Christmas 6 x 6" pad
Tim Holtz Seasonal Paper Stash-12 x 12
Hero Arts, Stampers Anonymous, Stampin' Up! Stamps
Distress Inks, Stickles

  1. Beautiful cards, Laura! You two must have fun stamping themtogether. The red and kraft colored ones with Tim Holtz stamps are just great and the white cards with tree and the read border is also a great combination.
