1 stamp set – 3 Christmas cards

Hi! Today I am back with three more Christmas cards. I used one stamp set for all my cards and I am sharing both vintage and clean and simple designs. The stamp set I used is MERRY MAIL by Darkroom Door. It’s from their new collection and it’s packed with lovely images. Their size make them great for cards but also for gift tags as they would make a perfectly small focal point.

the Santa card

On this card I combined many fun techniques including stamping, embossing and inking. You can check the photos below for close-up looks but make sure to watch the video above!

the joy card

Here is another card using the same stamp set but in a completely different style. This time I used the small stamps to create my own patterned paper. Use different stamps from the set and in any color combo you like for a modern look. Then all you have to do is just stick a sentiment on top.

the snowflake card

For this card I went super simple, I love white with silver and I think it makes a really elegant card. In elegant cards less is more and have white space really makes the focal point shine. In this case I embossed with silver embossing powder the “north pole” circle stamp and then placed it on the center of my snowflakes.

    I love what you did with these Darkroom Door images. Those Aussies do great stuff. And you make it even more fantastic. I think the Santa is my favorite. Love how you accented the brown with a bit of red. Can’t wait to see what you create next time!
