I started by embossing the large celebrate stamp on the bottom of red card stock. I love the look of bright white embossing on colored card stock. And for Christmas, what could be better than a bright white sentiment on some gorgeous red card stock? I added even more embossing with the Happy Holidays stamp just below that, embossed in some Leaf Green embossing powder by Zing.
In order to add texture to the card, I used my Martha Stewart score board to create some scored lines on the front of my card. This is a fast and easy way to add texture without adding bulk. I added two scored lines above the sentiment area and one below. This also blocks in the sentiment area and creates separation.
I thought that the card needed a bit more texture. So I added a tone on tone stamped pattern to the top of the card. The tone on tone effect was created very simply with some Versamark watermark ink. I used a small dot stamp from the Wreath Stamp Set and staggered it to create a polka dot pattern. This is another way to add texture without bulk...and make your card perfect for mailing.
This card uses very few consumables, which makes it a great option for mass producing. You can create it over and over again.
I have included a video walking you through the entire creation of this card below. I've also linked all the supplies used to create this card below.
Like I said before, this stamp set is not just for your holiday cards. It can be used year round. Here's a peek at a birthday card I created using this stamp set. I did a little ombre stamping for the sentiment.
