Thanks for popping into my blog!  I love Christmas and the time we spend with family and friends.  I think that’s why I love designing Christmas Cards! They help to spread the joy of Christmas.  This card is made using the Ornamental Envelopes Stamp Set and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  It does come with dies and I did use them for the envelope but  I wanted to design a card that just used the stamp set!  I also added in some of the Tis the Season Designer Series Paper to add to the finished look!

Here are the step by step instructions if you don’t like following a video!

Card Base and Cut Instructions (DSP = Designer Series Paper)

Card Base – Cherry Cobbler – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4

Layer 1 – Tis the Season DSP – 4 1/8 x 5 3/8

Layer 4 – Shaded Spurce – 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 

Layer 5 – Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/4 

Layer 6 – Envelope insert – Tis the Seasons DSP – 4 x 6 


Layer 1 – Adhere to the card base.

Layer 2 – Using the large ornament stamp and cherry cobbler ink stamp first image in the center towards the top.  Then stamp one on each side lowering each one but keeping level with each other. 

Next using the chain image stamp, stamp the image above each of the stamped images on the sides making sure to just catch the upper image of the ornament image so it looks connected. 

Adhere to Layer 1 on the card front centering!

Layer 3 – Using the Itty Bitty Stamp set and Whisper White Craft ink stamp the sentiment onto the center of the the strip.  Then using the Ornamental Envelope stamps set stamp the set of three flowers on the right and left also in Whisper White Craft Ink. Set aside to dry! 

Once the pigment ink has dried adhere to the card front using Stampin Dimensionals. 

Layer 4 – Adhere to the inside of the card.

Layer 5 – Stamp the ornament image on the right side in Cherry Cobbler ink stampin off the page just a bit.  Then stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce in the middle.  

Adhere to the Layer 4 on the inside of the card. 

Layer 6 – Using the Dies cut out an envelope insert and adhere to the inside of the envelope

So as you can see the card was done with just stamping!  We need to not forget that we can design and make beautiful cards with just stamping the images!  I know I sometimes get caught up with all the dies and punches and forget how beautiful simple stamping can be!  Try it on your next design and let me know how it comes out!
