    Stampin’ Up Christmas card design

    Discovering Stampin’ Up was honestly the best thing to ever happen to my craft loving life! Although, it probably wasn’t so good for my bank account! haha. If you’ve never heard of Stampin’ Up you should definitely check out their website. They’re a craft website that sells all sorts of crafty things from paper, die cuts, stamps, ink etc. The quality of their products are amazing and I’d highly recommend them for anyone that likes craft things.

    It’s never too early for Christmas cards 

    Preparing early for Christmas is always key. I have various family members that buy their cards from me. This means I have to be organised to make sure everything is designed in time for Christmas. Today I’m sharing my latest card that I have made which I used the Merry Mice Stampin’ Up set for.

    How I made the card 

    I always like to create layers when I make cards as I find this the easiest way to work. I started off by picking the red card for my background colour which is always a winner for Christmas designs.

    The mouse was stamped on using my Merry Mice Stampin’ set and then I used my Pro Marker set to colour the stamp in. These pens are great as they come with a blender which I use to blend colours together to create a more professional finish.

    Using a gold strip of glitter card, I layered this behind the mouse cutout to start building the card and giving it more depth. Finally, I used a ‘Christmas Wishes’ Stamp that I bought from Etsy with gold ink and placed this in the corner of the card.

    I honestly love how cute the mouse is and find he’s perfect for putting on the front of Christmas cards. I love how all of the colours go well together, and the glitter paper adds the extra Christmas touch!
