# 5 of Twelve Cards of Christmas

Hello Stamping Friends,

Thank you for visiting/following.  I would love to hear if any of the cards has inspired you!  I am calling today’s card the Rejoicing Pocket Card.  It is one that would be easy to mass produce and is the fourth card using the Versatile Christmas stamp set.   The Designer Series Paper (DSP) that I used in the pictured card is retired but the new “Home For Christmas” paper on page 9 of the Holiday catalog has a red and white striped paper that would look really awesome with the red and white striped ribbon.  The directions are in a blue link right after the pictures in a printable PDF file.  Just click on the blue link and the file will download for you.  The card and directions will also be in the recipe box so you have the measurements and can make pocket cards for birthdays, get well, or other times when you need a quick card.  I first saw it on Dawn Olchefske’s blog.  Thank you, Dawn!

I think I need a new camera, (or new glasses?).  Yesterday’s post looked like I spritzed it with Crumb Cake instead of sparkly white and today’s very vanilla looks a tint of red.  Sigh A  Loud!  (Can’t resist playing with SAL acronyms.)

So here are the supplies you need.  Just click on any product image to go directly to the online store.

Best of TimesBest of Times OpenedThis is the second card using the Versatile Christmas stamp set.  I challenged myself to create a card for each of the verses and came up with this “clock” card.  The Merry Moments DSP used on the front has a Merry Moments Cardstock Pack that matches! There are eight sheets of three cardstock colors, Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler, and Old Olive.  What a great new product bundling that Stampin’ Up! is doing for us!   It takes a 6X6 envelope so have your envelope punch board ready!  Here are your instructions with all the measurements and helpful hints:

#2 of Twelve Cards of Christmas

Hello Stamping Friends,

Welcome to all my new blog followers!  I plan on giving you lots of fun ideas for Christmas cards!

I have two events coming up with room left if you are interested.

Saturday, November 21, at 10:00 AM I will be teaching a Christmas boxes class at the Crossroads Church on 9900 S Twenty Mile Road.  It is $10 to make six boxes, two curvy keepsakes, two pillow boxes, and two gift bags with the gift bag punch board.  Call me at 303-815-0838 and I will get kits made for you!

While at the Denver Merchandise Mart for a scrapbooking event I found a booth called PineconePress and they had a most interesting slider gift card.  I immediately thought how nice the card would look with stamped images and beautiful Stampin’ Up! designer paper.  So here is my creation resized to fit our SU products:

I challenged myself to use all the greetings in the Versatile Christmas stamp set (page 26 of the holiday catalog).  Stampin’ Up! listened to our request for more stamp sets with outside and inside greetings and this one is awesome with great fonts and verses!  A gift card seemed the best way to use “The gift of LOVE, the gift of PEACE, the gift of HEALTH & HAPPINESS….. May all these be yours at CHRISTMAS”.  Stay tuned for the next three cards which will use the other verses.  Of course you must have a direction sheet which I will also post here and to the recipe box on the main blog!

Additionally, you may want to buy the envelope punch board, page 150 of the big book, item #133774 for $20; and the red envelope paper, page 26 of the Holiday catalog, item #139604, 20 sheets of 12 X 12 for $6.00.  With the envelope punch board and a 3 1/2″  X  6 1/2″ piece of red envelope paper you can make the perfect envelope!

 Another great thing Stampin’ Up! is doing for us is showing us a list of what will retire with the current Holiday Catalog.  We usually hold our breath hoping our favorites reappear next year but now we will know for sure what is gone and what will be carried over.  Click on the link for a list of the retiring items.
