Cameo Christmas Card

Hi Everyone,

I just received my latest SU order and it included the sweet treat cups as well as the Serene Snowflake stamp set. I got a chance yesterday to play with my new stamp set and decided to do a non traditional Christmas card using one of my favourite colour combinations Cameo Coral, Real Red, and Old Olive. I cased a card done by Wannabestampin' over at splitcoast stampers. It was a gorgeous card done in browns and was a beautiful layout. I wanted to see what it would look like done in bright colours.

I used my cuttlebug embossing folders (swiss dots, snowflakes) to addd some texture. I decided to use the Rock n Roll technique to ink up my snowflakes and they turned out really nice. I like how this technique adds dimension and visual interest to your stamped image.

Finally I finished the card off with a bit of stardust stickles and some old olive coloured ribbon from my stash.

Paper: SU Old Olive, Cameo Coral, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folders (swiss Dots, snowflakes), green ribbon, gold mini brads
Ink: Cameo Coral, Real Red, Old Olive
Stamp Set: SU Serene Snowflakes

Happy Crafting,


  1. I love this card!! I never would have thought to use those colors, but it is a really nice combo. Again, soooo not fair you get to play and I don't.... now I am thinking I should have been mean to you and waited til I got back to drop off your goodies... well not really cause then I could not live vicariously through you.

    I also really like the new LO's you are doing. I found some great digital papers I love and I will show you some links to them when I get back.
