Going for a fun and unusual sized card you need:
O Holy Night stamp set (#131832 Holiday pg.33), Smoky Slate card stock (#131202),
Shimmery White card stock (#101910),
Smoky Slate Stamp Pad(#131179),
Midnight Muse Stampin' Write Maker (#126856),
Midnight Muse card stock (#126860),
adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246),
Silver Ribbon (#132137 Holiday pg. 28)
Create this card when you cut this 3-1/2" by 9" card stock and fold at 4-1/2".  Save the cut off portion for another card!
 
Stamping this O Holy Night stamp into Smoky Slate ink and then color Merry Christmas in Midnight Muse with the Stampin' Write Marker.  This will have a slightly streaked and multi-colored looking image but this lends towards the vintage look.  Layer the piece over a Midnight Muse card stock for a coordinated, framed look!
 
Adding the North Star stamp above it and accenting with this adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewel for an elegant touch.  (Sometimes less is more.)
 
Tie this silver ribbon (#132137 Holiday pg. 28) for a simple but elegant accent.
Create a Custom Envelope with our Envelope Punch Board (#133774) and the Winder Frost Specialty Designer Series paper (#132341).  This paper is double sided allowing for a coordinated pattern 'envelope liner' which is a rich accent.
 
Save $$ when you can create custom sized envelopes (over 66 sizes!) with the scraps of paper you have laying about.  Specialty envelopes can be so pricy and hardly as pretty!!
This card reminds me of singing carols, holding my Pappa's hand... time has since passed and he is looking down on us with a smile.  This card brings back great memories to share with those on my list!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
