BSS MONDAY IDEA-SIMPLE CHRISTMAS CARDS


Welcome to Monday Morning and another Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Monday Idea.

Are you starting to stress out about not having enough Christmas cards made for the holidays?
Well, I received a catalog with cards and these two simple cards were inspired from that catalog.
With postage at an all time high, with the limit on size and if the card has a bump on it, that's all extra now, I thought I would make a simple design and share it with you.


These two cards are similar, but simple to make and mail!

The center snowflake (Impression Obsession) was stamped on red mirror paper and embossed with white embossing powder.  Be sure to use a non-static embossing buddy on the paper before inking it so that the powder doesn't stick everywhere.  After embossing and cooling down, whipe the extra embossing buddy powder off with a clean tissue.  The smaller snowflakes (all Martha Stewart) are stamped with Ranger, Barn Door Distress Ink.  The sentiment is Rubber Stampede. Finishing touch is Kaiser Rhinestones.


On this card, I stamped the snowflake (Impression Obsession) with gold embossing powder and used a scallop punch to cut it out.  The same set from Martha Stewart was used for the small snowflakes.  Ranger Distress ink, Stormy Sky was used. Sentiment is by Rubber Stampede. Final touch is Kaiser Pearls.

Hope you get a handle on your Holiday cards and this idea inspires you.  Have a great Monday.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later..............
