Christmas Card class card

Our next card class is for holiday cards.  We used this stamp set last time and it will be the only repeat.  Last time we embossed the image.  This time I CASEd the technique from the Stampin' Up! catalog - at least it is what I think they did.  I inked the image in a gold color - River Rock to match my background cardstock - then I sponged on a bit of dark brown ink around the edges and stamped. We will have to clean the stamp between stampings but it is a very fast card to put together.

I snagged this ribbon at the Mighty Dollar store earlier in the year.  The rest are all SU! papers.  I'm doing better with my cling stamps thanks to some advice I got on Splitcoaststampers.  Press the acrylic block onto the cling stamp and hold for a few seconds to get good adhesion.  It really works.

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Come to Bethlehem by Stampin' Up!
Ink:  River Rock and Ranger's Vintage Photo
Paper:  Not Quite Navy, River Rock, Ruby Red, Gold and Bravo Burgandy

  1. A very pretty card.
    If you are having problems with your SU cling mount stamps, what I do now is I don't put the clear image on the back of the stamp. Then it adheres to the block perfectly :)
