This may not look like the traditional Christmas card but it sure does feel warm, cozy, and full of love. That is what a card is suppose to be anyway, isn’t it??? How precious!!!!
I started with a Crumb Cake card base and added a strip of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper (1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″). I cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 2″ x 3″ and stamped the teddy bear (body and ears) from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. This image is very solid and you might find that you don’t get a nice solid image. The image in the sample above even has a few spots on the top side of the teddy’s head. I stamped the face in Basic Black. If you are getting this, ink it up, stamp it off onto scrap paper a few times and then repeat 2-3 more times. This will help roughen it up a little and then you should get a nice clean, solid look. I punched out the heart from the coordinating punch – Cookie Cutter Builder Punch (Bundle & Save 10%). I used a little dab of the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the heart. I took a Delicate White Doily and but it into 3 pieces (like a pie piece). Just add one of these pieces to the left side of the teddy bear rectangle. Then I added this to the middle of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the greeting, I cut a Real Red strip (1″ x 3-1/2″) and a Very Vanilla strip (3/4″ x 3-1/2″). I added banner tips to the ends of both of them and added the red strip to the card front with Snail Adhesive. I stamped the greeting from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set in Real Red Ink and added it to the card front as well. Simple, fabulous and uses up lots of little scraps you have saved….come on, we all know you save every scrap! 🙂
Stay tuned to many more samples using the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle because I am loving it.
