Stampin' Up! 2018 Christmas Card Idea with Blended Seasons

2018-handmade-christmas-card-stampin-up-blended-seasonsToday's project is a 2018 Christmas Card idea with the limited time, Stampin' Up! Blended Seasons Bundle.  This is a beautiful collection of products that will take you crafting through every season of the year!

Back to talking about Christmas cards...

This particular style card is one you could mass produce if you create in stages.  How about this?

  1. Cut your cardstock bases and designer paper layer.
  2. Die cut your layering frames.
  3. Stamp your images and sentiments.
  4. Color your images.
  5. Cut and tie ribbon around designer paper.
  6. Assemble front of the card.
    Not shown here but something else you can do...
  7. Cut neutral cardstock layer for the inside of the card.
  8. Stamp inside sentiment.
  9. Write your greeting and sign your card.

When you break it down into steps like this, it seems manageable, doesn't it?

Here are the products that you will need to make this Christmas card.

Here's another 2018 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card idea to wind up our Christmas in July Week here on inkandinspirations.com

There were some technical difficulties with the original LIVE  broadcast (blurriness) so I gave it another try.  You'll see the "better" video below.  The beginning is a little fuzzy but it clears up nicely so you can see the how-to video.

Card Details:

  • Card base is Real red CS cut at 4 1/4" x 11".
  • Whisper White for main image is cut 3" x 3 1/2".
  • Night of Navy CS behind main image is cut 3 1/4" x 3 3/4".
  • Under the Mistletoe DSP is cut 4" x 5 1/4".
