Christmas card with non-holiday stamps

This month’s theme for the WOW! Embossing Powder Fans Facebook group is Christmas, and of course, it is the perfect time to hop on over and see lots on inspiration to start making your Christmas cards. For today’s cards, I wanted to show you how you can use non-holiday stamps and use them to create a Christmas inspired card. This card uses two of WOW! stamp sets and combines them together to make a Christmas inspired foliage to add a sentiment too. So let’s make a Christmas card with non-holiday stamps!

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR WOW! Embossing powder - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Creating the glitter background

To add a pop of sparkle, we are going to use embossing glitter. Add embossing ink completely to a white card panel and cover with Peridot embossing glitter which is from the Gemstone trio from Tracy Scott. Cover the card panel with several layers to get a consistent full coverage across the panel.

Die-cut the Catherine Pooler Throwing Confetti Cover Plate die out of another white card panel and adhere this over your embossed panel. As the panel has glitter on, use liquid glue to ensure it adheres well. 

creating the Christmas 'foliage'

For the foliage, stamp several leaves from the WOW! ‘Flights of fancy’ stamp set in ‘Deck the Halls’ Catherine Pooler ink and fussy cut these out. In addition, stamp several of the circle images from WOW! ‘Round & Round’ stamp set in ‘Cranberry Fizz’ Catherine Pooler ink. Once these are fussy cutout, foam mount the leaves and ‘berries’ onto the front of the card. 

Add a white heat embossed sentiment from the Altenew Happy Holidays stamp set and foam mount onto the card. Lastly, add a few Red Berry Nuvo drops around the card to finish the card off.
