I usually do a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) project because it's a great way to get off to a good start when you know you're going to need a few Christmas cards ready to pop in the mail - especially if you're sending them overseas.
This year, I have fallen in love with the Winter Meadow Suite on page 36 Sep-Dec 2023 Mini catalogue. It's stunning, and the biggest surprise (for me) is the non-traditional colours, as I am usually red and green all the way!
Suite Collection - #162150
includes - Magical Meadow Stamp Set & Die Bundle #162144
Faceted Gems #162148
Silver & White Sheet Ribbon #162149
Snowflake Magic Specialty DSP #162147
Winter Meadow DSP #162133
For my project, I've also used the Deckled Circles Dies #162286
Begin with a piece of A4 cardstock - mine is Basic White
You can really stamp in any order, but a couple of tips I use are:
Choose one stamp per ink colour & place the stamp on the ink pad - helps prevent mistakes.
Stamp the largest image first
Don't be overly fussy, just do it!
Once your piece is covered to your liking, cut it into 4 measuring 138mm x 95mm. This gives a 5mm border around the outside when layered onto your card base.
You can assemble them all differently, but if you want to make a bunch quickly, keeping the design the same for all 4 cards is easier to speed up the process.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment and the stamped layer - it has a bigger impact.
Are you an early bird, or a last minute loris when it comes to Christmas preparation?
I hope you've enjoyed week 1. Let me know what you're making!
