Vintage 3D Ornament Hand Stamped Christmas Card

Not all Christmas cards need to be 'traditional' in color to scream 'tradition'!  Here is a nod to those first creators of cards.. Those who, during the Victorian era, make beautiful original cards... and they stood out for their craft and showing that they care!

For this pretty, vintage hand-stamped card you will need:
Pistachio Pudding card stock (#131294)
Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper (#130144)
Island Indigo ink (#126986)
Early Espresso Baker's Twine (#123124)
Mosaic Punch (#131267)
Delightful Dozen stamp set (#122652)
Delicate Designs embossing folder (#127023)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
Stamp this beautiful scrolled sentiment with Island Indigo ink on this patterned piece of Venetian Romance paper.  I think it reminds of a vintage stained glass window.
 
Punching 6 Mosiac shapes from this piece of Venetian Romance.  The paper is double sided so these two patterns are designed to coordinate while showing a beautiful mixed medium look.  Here it reminds me of blown glass... so pretty and vintage!
 
With my Hot-Glue gun, Adhere the bakers twine down so it mimics the cascading ornaments.  Fold three in half and adhere the halves together... then over the baker's twine.  (I always caution that Hot Glue is HOT! so always take extra care when working with it.)
Adding this lace embossing to the bottom of the card continues the vintage feel.  Layering this beautiful stamped and ornament created item above it and you have completed a beautiful, unique card that will stand out above the rest.. even if it issss non-traditional in color... it expresses your love this holiday season!

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
