Stamped Christmas Cards with Chiswick Stamps

Today I am sharing a quick masked Christmas card with you using the gorgeous stamps from  Chiswick.
Now you may think that these stamps are not themed, but simply by using them in a clever way you can turn any stamp into a themed stamp.
Let’s take a look at how I create this card.

step 1 – Stamp a Christmas tree image onto a card panel using green.

step 2 – Stamp an extra tree onto a scrap piece of cardstock and cut it out to create a mask. Place the mask tree over the original
tree using some low tack adhesive to only keep it in place temporarily.

step 3 – Ink your 715 stamp from your stamp set using brown ink and stamp over the masked tree.
Remove the masked tree – see how the green tree that you stamped first is still perfect, but now it has a gorgeous background all around it.

step 4 – Stamp a sentiment from your stamp set in red ink onto a strip of white cardstock. Note how I only inked and stamped the celebrate
portion of the ‘celebrate this life’ stamp – making it even more versatile.

step 5 – Stamp extra Christmas trees and gather some festive embellishments to use on your card, then assemble everything.
Adhere the panel to a folded card and there you have a gorgeous card using some of the really versatile stamps sets from Chiswick.

Have you started making your Christmas cards yet – well now if a good time?
Hope you are inspired by this 10 minute card – perfect for mass production this festive season.
