Stretch your Stamps Christmas Card

It’s Crackerbox Palace Friday today and I am sharing another Christmas card in my series of “using your stamps in different ways to stretch your stamp buying power.” Scroll down here on the blog to see three other cards using this beautiful holly border and the “Season’s Greetings” stamps. I found this fun sketch and quadruple time stamping idea here on this blog and decided it would make a lovely card with these two stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I layered the white pieces (without the red border) together on the green card base with temporary tape and stamped the holly border and the sentiment on the white pieces and also on the card base. It does not matter if they don’t stamp perfectly where the pieces overlap because when you add the red borders, any imperfections are covered up. The red pieces are ¼” larger than the white pieces. I added some red Wink of Stella glitter to the berries and some red gems to complete the card.

Don’t forget you can save 15% off your order at Crackerbox with my name (Karen) in the coupon code box. All I ask is that you sign up as a follower here and then go shop for all these great stamps and more.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Aud Sentiments and Crafty Girls.

I love the card in this style. I have done triple time stamping but never tried four before. Looks wonderful though!
