Stylish Christmas — Elegant Christmas Card

***Look below for details on my October 2018 purchase special

We are now entering my favorite time of year.  I LOVE the holidays! The only thing I do not like is how quickly they come and go. My goodness, one day it’s Halloween and the next it’s February. Another thing that I love about the holidays is making Christmas cards. 

For today’s card, I’ve chosen to use the Stylish Christmas stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

This set is an amazing example of Stampin’ Up!’s new line of stamps called “DistINKtive”. The stamps are made using a special patent pending process to create beautiful photorealistic results. You can view all of the stamps in the DistINKtive line by clicking this link.

As you can see, in this close-up view, I applied the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to the poinsettia and leaves that I fussy cut. You might also notice the layer of Black Foil paper. I love how the shine of the foil paper repeats the shine of the poinsettia and leaves.  Overall, this is such an elegant Christmas card.

Adding another poinsettia to the inside of the card really ties it to the front and completes the overall design.

For some reason, many of us find it difficult to create masculine cards.  Well, I am happy to help with that struggle. This quick and easy card is perfect.  I hope you will create one for that special man in your life.  I really like the texture the Burlap Ribbon and Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder provide.  Those little touches can add a lot to a card!

Change the sentiment and this card is great for any occasion.

The Pinewood Planks embossing folder provides a great background to the tree. As you can see, I lightly rubbed the embossed cardstock with Soft Suede ink and a sponge dauber.  That helps bring out the texture and helps the die cut tree to “pop”.

I  love how this card turned out!!  Who would have thought you could make a poinsettia out of the two leaf stamps? Here are a couple of great things about this Christmas card: easy to stamp and you can add a spiritual or a secular message to it.

Can you see how awesome the petals look with a little Wink of Stella added?  Love it!!!  I colored the small pearls with my dark Daffodil Delight Blends marker.
