Collage Style Stamping with Chrissie

Catherine Christmas, CP Designs, CPD Ink, Holiday, Stamp of Approval

Hi! Chrissie here today!  Christmas is in the air… Already! I always get excited about crafting for the holidays and the newest Stamp of Approval, Home for the Holidays, completely nailed it for me!

To start, trim a piece of Premium White cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11 inches, and score at 5 1/2 to make a top folding card. Trim another piece to 4 x 5 1/4. This will be the front panel we will work with!

On another piece of Premium White, add some Easy-Cut Adhesive to the back. Do the same with the Midnight cardstock. If you don't have that (or Stick-It or any type of sticker-maker paper), this is not required! Don't sweat it. You can just add adhesive after we die cut. I add it before to the thinner and intricate dies, but you can use liquid adhesive or whatever works for you! Die cut “Merry Christmas” out of both the Premium White and Midnight cardstock, then set aside.

It's time to stamp! Start stamping, to create a holiday ‘collage!' Stamp the holly, evergreen, heart, poinsettia, sprigs; all of it! Cluster it together, to get it the way you want.

Now it's time to add those beautiful die cuts to the panel. Add the black piece first. This is a very thin die cut, so I used my tweezers to help me hold it in place and get it in the right spot on the panel. Add the white die cut, just a hair off of the black. We want the black to show through, just a little bit, to pop that white and really show it off!

To complete the card, adhere the panel to the card base.

That's it! Easy peasy!

Thank you so much for having me today Catherine!!!!
