Stampin’ Up’s Contempo Christmas Photo Card!

Catherine Christmas, Embossing, Projects


A photo card for the holidays is a wonderful way to connect with friends and family.  How many of your friends have holiday photo cards plastered all over their fridge all year long?  This year YOUR card could be the favorite one on the fridge!

This card was quick and easy to whip up and is awaiting that famous family letter to put inside.  I think I'll make hubby write it this year!  😉

I started with a half sheet of Crumb Cake Cardstock, folded in half.  My Real Red layer is cut at 4 x 5 1/4".  I stamped it with the Christmas Collage Stamp in Real Red and sponged Early Espresso around the edges.

Next, I stamped the ornament from the Contempo Christmas Stamp Set in Real Red Craft Ink (this is a pigment ink that is wet and is fabulous for embossing), then poured on my Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heated it with my heat tool.

The Ornament Punch by Stampin' Up made it a snap to punch out this glittery awesome-ness!

A little Tinsel and the greeting punched out with the Modern Label Punch finished this simple and gorgeous card (do you think I'm stuck up saying that?  LOL).
