This week’s challenge over at: Crazy4Challenges is to use your favorite Christmas stamp. I don’t really have a favorite Christmas stamp but I chose this one because it always reminds me of when I was about 4 or 5 and in New Mexico I got to be the little angel in a live Nativity at the church we attended. We had no lines, we just stood there.
Step 1: Using a stamp set from InkadinkaClings called “Happy Birthday Jesus”. It comes with 3 stamps. I used all 3 (the sentiment, Mary, Joseph etc. Holly border).
Step 2: I colored and cut the stamped imaged with a Die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs called “Nested Stitched Squares”.
Step 3: Using another nested squares from Elizabeth Craft Designs called “Dotted Scalloped Squares”. I cut a red scalloped mat for the stamped layer and adhered them together.
Step 4: Make a card base by scoring cardstock and folding over for a tent fold. I then cut another mat from a Holly print paper to leave a 1/4″ border when you attach it to the base. Then adhere the step 3 to the card.
Step 5: The gold mirror cardstock “Merry Christmas” and stars are also from sets by Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I can’t wait to see your favorite Christmas stamp.
