Get Cracking on Christmas – November 2021

I can’t believe it’s already November!

If you’re getting tired of the same color schemes and sentiments on all of your Christmas cards, how about some ideas of using products in non-traditional ways to create those final Christmas cards?

I started with a traditional background stamp (this is the Pinecone Background stamp from Simon Says Stamp) but chose a very non-traditional color to stamp it in – find a fun, bright color ink in your stash.

After stamping the background, I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and attached to a white card base.

Now to add a non-traditional sentiment! It doesn’t have to be holiday specific to fit – like this Best Day Ever die (also from Simon Says Stamp). I cut it three times from black cardstock and used liquid glue to attach them for dimension. I then added the shadow layer cut from vellum and attached to my card front.

I finished it off with just a little bit of bling for the holiday sparkle!

Now go raid your stash for some fun non-holiday products to use on those final cards!

Thanks for stopping by!
