Roxstamps Christmas card for Swedish House Crafts


I'm here today with my Swedish House Crafts DT make which is a Christmas card using the Roxstamps Christmas papers.


I just love the detailing on these papers. I decided I wanted to use this Clair versafine ink in Chianti to stamp the Reindeer. To make sure everything co-ordinated I then took a piece of card and wiped the ink all over it and then used clear embossing powder on it. Then I cut the Gummiapan Merry Christmas from it. I used the same technique around the edges of the base card - means everything co-ordinates beautifully and it is a custom colour.


Did you see the star hangers? Roxstamps don't make them (yet!) but I took their heart hangers and added the stars from their Nesting dies set and made by own!


The Reindeer die cuts around the stamp so perfectly. I also wanted to cut another without the stamp using the Maja monochrome paper to put behind the text stamped one.

Finally I added fluffy snow using an applique pen from my stash.
