It's time for DIY Christmas Card Sunday again, and today I'm featuring one of the popular Stampin' Up! retired stamps from last year, Wonderland. I love this stamp set, so you won't find it on my Retired Rubber Stamps page. 🙂 At least, not yet. I'm not sure I want to part with it because it makes the most beautiful cards.
On this card I made a mask by cutting out an oval in a piece of copy paper using the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies. I placed it over the focal card stock piece and then stamped and sponged within the oval. It makes a beautiful frame for the scene without adding any bulk to the card.
I sponged around the edges of this piece using Tip Top Taupe ink to give it some dimension before gluing to the card front.
The Christmas card saying was stamped and then cut out using my Big Shot and the frame from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies. I sponged the edges again with Tip Top Taupe ink, added a few rhinestones to it, and used some retired ribbon underneath.
You'll find the color palette used for this DIY Christmas card below.
