I own a few Christmas themed sets from YNS and did use one. But the main focal point comes from a non-Christmas stamp set. Did you know you could make a Christmas card out of ANY set you own? Just use traditional Christmas colours and sentiment and any image you use becomes festive!! Or, you can use a Christmas set in non-traditional colours...I love doing that!
Anyway, enough chatter. Let's take a look at what I made.
I stamped two To-Go Cups from the Thanks A Latte Stamp Set and coloured them in warm greys, green and red. This is the VERY FIRST stamp and die set I purchased from YNS...it's a classic!! I used the co-ordinating dies to cut them out. The die set has super cute "sleeves" and other shapes to decorate your cups. I chose green and red papers to match the lids.
I stamped, coloured and die cut a few images from the Deck the Halls Stamp Set and foam mounted them to the cups. The greeting also comes from this set. I foam mounted almost everything to an embossed, white card panel and added plenty of shimmer and shine with Glossy Accents and a sparkle pen.
I added a strip of red cardstock and silver glitter paper to the right side of the cardbase before adding the panel. The heart steam was an afterthought as I felt the top part of the card was a little too bare.
And that, my friends, is my first Christmas card of 2018!!! I hope you enjoyed! Now for the fun stuff...
