For this elegant and vintage card you need:
Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper (#130144)
O Holy Night stamp set (#131835)
Crisp Cantaloupe card stock (#131298)
Crisp Cantaloupe ink (#131176)
Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffle Stretch Trim (#130021)
Soft Suede card stock (#115318)
Soft Suede ink (#126978)
Sticky Strip adhesive (#104294)
Champagne Glass Stampin' Glitter (#120997)
Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (#104430)
SNAIL adhesive (#104332)
Inspired by this Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper and it's Vintage Stained Glass look... I envisioned a Victorian feel to this hand-stamped Christmas card.
Stamp this O' Holy Night sentiment full stamp with Soft Suede ink on this Crisp Cantaloupe stained-glass patterned Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper.  Stamp the Star with the Crisp Cantaloupe ink above this sentiment.
Wrap the edges with our Sticky Strip adhesive.  Apply the Champagne Glass Stampin' Glitter for a vintage, warm and trendy chunky glass glitter 'frame'.
Sticky Strip is one of the stronger adhesive we have.  It will hold this chunky glass glitter (and most loose material) even when mailed! (It's funny how the Sticky Strip is close to the Crisp Cantaloupe color....)
Frame this 'framed' sentiment with the Soft Suede card stock.  Using a line of Sticky Strip adhesive on the Crisp Cantaloupe card stock base to hold this Stretchy Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffled Trim.  The feminine accent lends more of that vintage Victorian feel!

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
