Hello my crafty friends. I hope you are all safe and away from natural disasters. Watching the news is so scary these days…
Today I have a fun video for you. I used the Christmas Sweater background stamp to create 3 cards. It’s a stamp that has been released for STAMPtember by SimonSaysStamp.
I love those Nordic patterns and I thought to give you a few ideas on how you can use it.
For my first cards I worked on red cardstock and did some shite embossing. Helps to have this beautiful design nice and bold against that red while at the same time it is textured. Gorgeous to the touch and eye!
To add the sentiment on such a busy background, I cut out a window on my panel and embossed my sentiment there. To finish it off I added a white ribbon. I love that extra touch of embellishing while keeping everything still simple.
Another simple card that is really easy to mass produce! I stamped the design on white card stock with red ink. Then I cut out a strip to stick it at the bottom of my card base. For the sentiment I combined a die cut word with an embossed one. But you can go just with a die cut when you mass produce to cut down preparation time.
And my last card for today in a totally different color combo. I love Kraft with white and touches of gold.
In this card I white embossed the stamp on kraft colored cardstock. Again I used die cut words for my sentiment but this time in gold.
And to finish it off I used gold thread and a couple of jiggle bells! A card not easy to send through the mail but perfect to put inside a Christmas gift that you will hand out!
