Simple Christmas Cards Recipe 1:

  • Cherry Cobbler Card Base:  8 /2″ x 5 1/2″ OR 11″ x 4 1/4″
  • Shaded Spruce:  3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″
  • DSP:  3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
  • Whisper White Layer:  2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″

Inside:

  • Whisper White:  3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Cherry Cobbler:  3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″

After stamping “Merry Christmas” emboss the white layer with the Subtle 3D Embossing folder.  In the video I punched and stamped before embossing, but then I had to emboss the tree separately, you could do this all at once by embossing then punching out the tree!

Use the tree that was punched out on the first card for this card!!!

As you can see, the recipe other than the white layer with the greeting is exactly the same!

All the plaids work perfectly for this card….and, don’t forget the envelope!

If you have any questions, or just want to share with me, I’d love to hear from you!

Want to Make These?

Here are all the supplies you need.  I used the MERRY CHRISTMAS from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, but you could use any other greeting you have.  But, if you like this one, and you like the other stamps, buy it with the punch as a bundle and save 10%
