Want a quick and lovely idea for rubber stamping Christmas cards? One that uses some of the oh-so pretty Frosted Florals designer series paper? (Which you can get FREE simply by purchasing the First Frost bundle until the end of the day today?)
Well, it IS Keep it Simple Sunday. So how about this one?
Blackberry Bliss has to be one of my favourite colours. Deep, rich, classy and simply beautiful with the Grey Granite.
Pssst… I have to say I didn’t really like Grey Granite when I first got it. Too brown. Now I LOVE it! Yes, it’s a more “earthy” grey but it pairs so so well with other rich colours. Colours like Blackberry Bliss, Night of Navy, or Tranquil Tide. It just goes to show, you shouldn’t necessarily go with your first impression 🙃.
OK, let’s dive in.
Rubber Stamping Christmas Cards
What You’ll Need:
- Blackberry Bliss cardstock: 1- 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”, scored at 4 1/4”, 1 – 3 3/4” x 2 3/4”, 1 – 2 1/2” x 3”
- Gray Granite cardstock: 1 – 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”
- Designer Series paper: 1 – 4” x 5 1/4”, 1 contrasting pattern – 2 1/2” x 3 1/2”
- Whisper White cardstock: 1 – 2 x 2 3/4”, 1 – 4” x 5 1/4”
- Polka dot tulle ribbon: 1 – about 5”, 1 – about 8”
- Stamp branch in Grey Granite ink in middle of Whisper White cardstock. TIP1: Stamp off onto scrap paper once before stamping on the white.
- Ink greeting with Blackberry Bliss ink and stamp on top of branch. Glue to smallest piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
- Adhere largest piece of designer series paper to piece of Grey Granite. Adhere smaller contrasting piece to remaining Blackberry Bliss cardstock. Glue to left front of grey panel. TIP2: Don’t glue this down yet – we need to get the ribbon on there!
- Put two strips of SNAIL on back of Grey Granite near bottom and wrap smaller piece of ribbon around it in the front. Glue entire panel to front of folded card.
- Attach greeting to middle front with dimensionals, overlapping the panel.
- Form a bow with the remaining piece of ribbon and attach to the left of the greeting with a glue dot. TIP3: Here’s a quick way to make the perfect bow every time.
- Adhere the leaf embellishment to bottom left with a glue dot. TIP4: scrunch up the dot with your Paper Piercing tool so you can’t see the adhesive showing. TIP5: have the leaf peeking out from under the tulle ribbon for a pretty look.
Don’t forget about the inside of your card.
- Stamp the berry on the bottom right in Grey Granite ink.
- Overstamp the rose with Blackberry Bliss ink.
- Place your greeting in middle in Blackberry Bliss ink.
- Glue piece inside card.
TIP5: I also stamped the bottom right of my Whisper White envelope to coordinate with my card. This is such an easy way to make the post office look twice!
Ok, time for you to get in your craft rooms. Here are all the supplies I used and I would LUVH it if you CASED this idea.
(And if you want to get in on my Steal of a Deal offer and get a 1/4 package of the Frosted Florals specialty designer series paper, make sure you pop that First Frost bundle onto your order by the end of the day today!)
