Hello again! We are still in the midst of an amazing sale at Unity Stamp Company and today, I’m pullout out some fun stamps at first, I just wasn’t sure how to use! Check out the Background Builder Sets 1 & 2 by Ann Butler Designs used in this “no-coloring Christmas card.” In addition to these fun stamps, the new Say It Big Holiday Die set brings it all together… and I popped in a little “Merry” from the “Heart of Christmas” stamp set for that last bit.
To create this pattern, I pulled out some olive and red card stock to create this festive card. Using a super fine detail embossing powder in gold. Because some of the stamps have a lot of detail, the super fine embossing powder allows for those details to show, but you can also stamp these strips using your favorite holiday inks too!
I trimmed each strip out easily and adhered them to a white piece of card stock. I then used a rectangular die cut to cut the background to size. Next, I adhered it to a slightly larger piece of gold card stock and then onto the white card base.
For the sentiment, I used the Say It Big Holiday dies and cut out the Christmas in the same gold paper, but because and die cut the shadow in white card stock to bring all the colors together. But it can’t just say “Christmas”… so I pulled out my new favorite holiday stamp set, “Heart of Christmas” for that itty bitty “Merry.” And in order to make it pop, I used white embossing powder on the same red card stock and tucked it under the Say It Big sentiment.
Look ma, no coloring!
Now, if you didn’t know, there are also holiday versions of these Background Builder stamps that you can do the same thing with… but I thought I’d show you how fun and multi-purposed these are too!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re enjoying THE BIGGEST SALE of the year at Unity Stamp Company! Until next time…
