A few weeks ago I won two Christmas JustRite stamps sets in the JustRite Friday Challenge. I LOVE everyone of the JustRite stamps sets so was very excited to win two sets just for submitting a card to the challenge. I am using both stamps sets on this card. The two sets used are "Hearts Come Home" and "From Our House". There are six images and six borders in each set that are interchangeable with each other! Both have postage stamp borders around each image.
This card was hard to photograph. The first picture of it partially open and then one opened up so you could see the inside. This card fits into a business size envelope.
I previously posted another (flower) card made with this style card. to create this card, eight images from the two new Christmas sets were stamped with Memento ink. Seven of for the front of the card and one for the inside. A combination of Copic markers and colored pencils/OMS were used to color. The bells were colored with a silver metallic pen. The part that took the most time was coloring the little postage stamp frame that is around each image, but it was worth the work because it really made each one stand out. Each image was punched out with a 1 1/4" square punch.
The front panels were embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. Each stamped image is attached with dimensional glue dots. A Martha Stewart punch was used for the border on each side and a brown strip of card stock placed by the border.
The inside of the card is lined with a piece of SU Christmas design paper. The verse and border are from the "Hearts Come Home" JustRite set. It was colored and cut out with a scallop square Nestability (perfect fit!). Each scallop was pierced. Another small white square was cut with Nestabilities to write a personal greeting on.
If you haven't seen all the new JustRite Christmas stamps, they now have a beautiful catalog that shows all current stamp sets and even sets that will be released in the near future.
