First Christmas Card of the year

Christmas card swap

Getting started early on your Christmas cards is a great idea! Here is a quick and easy card project idea. There is just a little stamping and a little coloring.

Card Basics:
Cardbase (Real Red) 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", folded in half along the long side. Your card will open on the right and the "hinge" will be on the left.

Accent Paper: 4" x 2" (Green & white dots -Brights 6"x6" Paper Pack)
Whisper White strip: 4" x 1 1/4"
Silver Glimmer paper: 4" x 1/4"
Focal feature: Whisper White & Silver Glimmer each approx 2" x 2"

Stamp the mistletoe using Memento ink if you are going to use Blends to color. I used Stazon Jet Black and used my Marvelous Markers.

Punch an accent in the bottom right corner.

Stamp the bell on a scrap piece of Whisper White using the same black ink. Color with the same markers.

Use 1 3/8" scallop circle punch.

For accent silver use 1 1/2" circle punch.

Layer the pretty paper piece onto your card base at approx 1 to 1 1/4" from the top.

Attach the white stamp piece just below the pretty paper.

Cover the seam between the two papers with the Silver Glimmer strip.

Layer the punch white circle over the punch silver Glimmer Paper. Best to use Glue Dots to attach onto the top of the Glimmer Paper.

Use a Stampin' Dimensional to pop the Bell piece up over the top of the three paper layers.

Use the corner rounding punch on the Trio Punch.

Use black in to stamp Merry Christmas to the bottom right side of the front piece.
