Clean and Simple Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing a clean and simple Christmas card made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Winter Cocoa set paired with Nested Rectangle Scallop w/Holes, Tiny Leaves and the Merry Little Christmas sentiment.  I always like to have a few extra Christmas cards on hand for those “last minute card emergencies” that always seem to arise during the holidays.   The Winter Cocoa set is so fun and the decorative pieces give the opportunity to create images that can stand alone with a sentiment on a card front.  This card was fast and easy  and only took about 10 minutes to make.

Come see how I made this clean and simple Christmas card.

The Card Base and Sentiment

  • Cut the scalloped layer using white cardstock.
  • Secure the cardstock and sentiment in the MISTI.
  • Apply green ink to the sentiment and stamp and repeat if necessary to get a crisp image. I LOVE MY MISTI
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped layer and attach it to the red card base.

The Cocoa Mug

  • Cut the mug and decorative pieces using designer paper and red cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the tiny holly leaves and punch out a 1/8″ red circle.
  • Cut the candy cane using white cardstock and attach the red stripes to the cane using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the scalloped mug top and the mug base and attach to the mug.
  • Coat the whipped cream piece with white embossing paste using your finger and set aside to dry.
  • Apply glossy accents to the lower edge of the whipped cream piece and attach to the mug.
  • Attach the candy cane to the back of the whipped cream and red and green sprinkles to the front of the whipped cream using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the mug and attach it to the white layer.

Come see how I made this fun clean and simple Christmas card.

Have you had a chance to check out the new Rubbernecker release? So many fun new dies to play with.  I’ve made cards with all of them but I can’t seem to pick a favorite.  Tomorrow I will share a beautiful card using the Tree Panel #3.

Wreath Christmas Card

Today my project is a wreath Christmas card made using the newly released Rubbernecker Stamps Wreath Set and paired with the Poinsettia #2 and Borders #1. I love that the set comes with evergreen branches, a holly branch and extra holly leaves and a berry branch.  I used all three branches to create my full wreath.  

Come over to my blog to see how I made this elegant wreath Christmas card.

The Card Base

  • Cut a piece of white cardstock 5.25″ x 4.00″.
  • Line up the border die and cardstock on the cutting platform and run through the machine.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the white border layer and attach it to the card base.

The Wreath

  • Cut the wreath base and several sets of the branches using green cardstock.
  • Punch out 1/8″ red circles and attach to the berry branches using glossy accents.
  • Begin by attaching the evergreen branches to the base of the wreath using glossy accents and continue to cover the whole base. 
  • Tuck holly branches in between the evergreen branches and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish the wreath by tucking the berry branches in between the holly and evergreen branches and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the wreath and attach it to the card base.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this lovely wreath Christmas card.

The Poinsettia

  • Cut the poinsettia layers using red cardstock and one using green cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flower centers using yellow cardstock.
  • Place the flower layers face down on the molding pad and form them using the large round stylus. Note:  You can check out my Poinsettia Tutorial to see how I form my flowers. 
  • Place the flower layers face up on the molding pad and push down on the flower centers using a small tipped stylus.
  • Attach the flower layers together using glossy accents and finish it by attaching the tiny flower centers using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach it to the wreath.

The Holly Wreath and Greenery Border
