Stampin’ For Christmas (September)

Published by under Christmas | Sep 05 2020

It was so much fun participating in the inaugural Stampin’ for Christmas blog hop last month, so we’re back again for our 2nd edition.

Gotta love an excuse to make and share Christmas cards. And this time I made quite a few!

I pulled out my new Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack and the coordinating Cards & Envelopes. It was so fun to mix and match the cards and envelopes.

These cards were all made with only those two basic products, plus a little touch of Wink of Stella brush glimmer for some extra sparkle.

A Closer Look

These are the simplest of the cards.

The 4″ x 6″ double-sided printed cards fit perfectly on the card bases, without any need for trimming.

The 3″ x 4″ cards in the pack are also double-sided. The pre-printed foil frame on the card frame makes it soooo easy to line up the card – ensuring a straight panel every time.

It’s a little tricky to see in the photo above, but I took a second card and trimmed out the sentiment to add it as a raised layer on to the card.

This adds dimension to an otherwise flat card.

This same technique was used for the next 2 cards.

A few holly stickers behind the top sentiment add to the dimension.

Extra layering was added to these cards too.

The Memories & More cards plus the coordinating envelopes would be fantastic for those of you who are travelling in the lead-up to Christmas (if that’s possible in your part of the world!). But also for those in hospital or recovering from an operation or illness. You only really need a pack of Stampin’ Dimensionals and a paper trimmer or scissors, and you’re good to go.

More great ideas…

Continue on the hop for more great Christmas ideas. Next up is Dana.
