Stampin’ For Christmas

Published by under cards | Aug 01 2020

Christmas is my favourite time of year.

I love the colours, the lights, the decorating. I love the cardmaking, home decor and gift packaging as well (no surprises there!).

So I was thrilled when the amazingly talented Laura Mackie from the UK gave me a reason to make Christmas cards EVERY month…. with the launch of the new ‘Stampin’ for Christmas’ monthly blog hop!

Every year I promise myself I’ll make at least a few Christmas cards EACH month, so this is perfect. Join in too! I’m sure you’ll find some amazing inspiration in this hop.

My card and treat holder include sneak peeks from the new 80+ page Christmas catalogue launching on Tuesday.

Christmas Card

The card is a Thick Whisper White base, embossed with the Subtle embossing folder. The feature panel is a green foil sheet embossed with the stunningly gorgeous Evergreen Forest embossing folder. I love how green and red foil sheets are packaged together in the new mini catalogue. So handy!

Little Treat Box

The new Little Treat Box dies includes 10 separate pieces: a single large die that makes up the treat box, plus 9 accompanying little dies to dress up the box.

I embossed the front and back of the box with the same Evergreen Forest Embossing folder. The trick is to only put the top plate up to the point where you want the embossing to finish. It will leave the rest of the cardstock plain.

To continue on the hop, just click on the button below and you’ll be taken to Laura’s incredible project.
