A Pocket “Merry Christmas” Card…

Hi there Lakeside Stampers!


I don’t know about where you live, but, here on the East Coast our weather got cold and chilly real fast this week. It scares me to think how very close the Holiday Season is upon us. Here is a very nice Vintage Christmas Card I wanted to share with you. Of course you can make it in any color combination, with any message, but, hopefully this will get you in the spirit to hand-make your holiday cards.It’s never too early…



For this card this is what you do:


1)    Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and score it at 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.

2)    Cut  a 3″ x 4″ piece (for the top), a 4-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ piece (for the flap)  and a 3-3/4″ x 4-1/2″ piece  (for the card) of any any designer series paper. Mix and match the patterns. I used  Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper. DSC_0145

3)    Cut three pieces of Very Vanilla Card Stock. Cut one 3-3/4″ x 5″. Cut another 2-3/4″ x 4″ piece and stamp the bell image from the Bells and Boughs Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. Around the edges with the Distressing Kit and the tea stain, distress the edges. On the third 3-3/4″ x 2-1/2″ stamp the greeting, “Merry Christmas” from the Christmas Postcard Stamp Set also in Cherry Cobbler Ink.

4) Layer the card as shown folding down the flap and adding two Glitter Brads to each corner.

 I love how Stampin’ Up!’s product line color coordinate so beautifully. If you want any of the product used in this card you can place an on-line order or email me at diane@lakesidestamper.com


Thanks for visiting and Happy Holiday Card-Making!
