Joy, Stand Up Christmas Card

It is day 3 of the card of the week for me for my yahoo group “Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps”.


I wanted to use Michael’s Cloisonne’ Mosaic frame rubber stamp and create a Christmas themed standing card. I had some chip board letters in my stash but the colours were wrong so I spray painted them gold then I stamped the frame three times and embossed the images with silver embossing powder. I then cut out part of the frame so that my letters would stand out. I coloured the frame by using several different colours of metallic rub on paint.

I had fun making the card and used many scraps from my stash. Remember if you use the frame stamp and cut out pieces save them for another project. The pieces make great embelishments.

Have a creative day.
