Today I have more Christmas stamping in July inspiration to share with you. Last week I was busy creating cards with the Merry Mistletoe stamp set (Wood 143650, Clear 143655). I had so much fun playing with the stamped images in this set!! (Click here to see the cards I shared last week.)
Today I have two more fun holiday cards to share. Here’s the first one….a quilt themed card.
- This card features the tree image in the Merry Mistletoe stamp set. I stamped the image four times, then cut it out using the 1 3/4″ square framelit from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (145372). They needed a bit of “pop” against the pattern paper background, so I matted them with a 1 7/8″ die cut square (Layering Squares Framelits Dies, 141708).
- The designer paper background is one of the patterns in the Be Merry Designer Series Paper pack (144111). The green houndstooth pattern was cut to four inches square. I made sure to cut right along the edge of the green in the design, so very little white shows around the edges.
- I also attached two 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ strips of the same designer paper on the top and bottom of the card front.
My second card has a stunning clean and simple design. This card is my favorite of all the cards that I made last week. I was so excited when I came up with this card idea!!
- Sentiment is from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set. It’s stamped in Cherry Cobbler on a 5″ x 1 5/8″ Whisper White cardstock strip.
- The top and bottom border was created with the Ticket Tear Border Punch (143718) and adds a nice accent to the card.
- The “poinsettia” was made with the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies (143725). The top layer was cut with two dies. The bottom layer was only cut with the outside flower shape, creating a solid piece.
- The center of the poinsettia is a Gold Faceted Gem (144141).
Here’s a close-up of the flower.
I really had so much fun creating with this stamp set. I’d encourage you to think about adding this set to your collection. You can find it in my online store. And, make sure to stop back on Wednesday to see even more Christmas stamping in July.
