We’ve been so lucky to be able to run Social Stamping each week in Term 4. There’s quite a few regular ladies who are building up a stash of Christmas cards to send or give this festive season. But, there’s always room for more at the table! Why don’t you join us tomorrow? We’re making 2 more Christmas cards, with a hot drink included for just $13.
We like to provide a range of cards, and take requests if you’d like to see a particular style in the coming weeks. A couple of weeks ago we made this traditionally themed Christmas card using the Peaceful Nativity stamp set from the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalogue.
The style of this stamp set really lends itself to an interlocking card, which when you add the Pinewood Planks embossed cardstock on each of the front panels, does a good job of recreating a stable-like feel. Haven’t seen my interlocking cards before? Click here for a cute birthday version and here for a sympathy version (and the instructions).
When you slide up the rejoice panel and open it up, it reveals the beautiful stamped imagery on the inside.
The colours for the nativity scene are Stampin’ Blends in lots of neutral tones – inspired by the colouring in the catalogue. It’s always my go-to when I want guidance on how best to represent the intent of the concept artist. We also stamped and coloured the envelope.
I really love the sentiments in this set. There’s lots of beautiful phrasing you can use inside & outside the card.
The Peaceful Nativity stamp set comes with dies to cut out all the stamped images and extra details, which makes it so easy to add some traditional cards for your family and friends this Christmas. This stamp set, and all the supplies you’ll need can be purchased from my online store. Click here to browse. Click here for the direct link to the Peaceful Nativity bundle.
