Christmas card using Winter Post

Morning and welcome to my blog! Happy Halloween!! Sorry I haven't posted the last few days. My husband went in for knee surgery on Wed. again and I've been a little busy with him! You know what big babies they are! lol He has been a pretty good patient a few times he got a little cranky but I would be to! lol

The card I am sharing today is another one that we made at my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack! I made this into a pocket card. To create this I used 2 stamps sets, Winter Post item #111780 and Many Merry Messages item #116586. To create the pocket card, I cut a piece of card stock at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" I scored it at 4 1/4". Next I scored one of the sides at 1 1/2" and rounded the corners on just the little flap. I cut a piece of Whisper White to put under the flap at the bottom. I took some of our Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper and added little strip to the flap and on the bottom. I love this paper!! The bottom piece is flocked paper!!! It is sooo yummy!! Now you want to make sure to tape down your flap. Take some of our Silver elastic Cord and wrap around twice, and tie a not in the center. This is what holds the pocket card together!

I took the Winter Post Stamp set and used the Do not open till Dec. 25 stamped that in Real Red classic ink on Shimmer White card stock, and then cut it out with scissors. I used the Designer Label Punch and punched out a piece in Real Red card stock to go behind it. Next I took the 1 3/8 circle punch and punched out a piece in Whisper White card stock. Then using the Scallop Circle Punch I punched out a piece in Real Red Card stock. I took the 1/16 hand punch to the scallops. Then layered them all together and placed a dimensional on the back and put it over the knot that was made with the Silver Elastic Cord.

For the inside I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock at the top I took Season's Greetings from Many Merry Messages stamp set, stamped it in Real Red classic ink and then stamped the edges with the snowflake from Winter Post in Real Red classic ink too.

The base is Bashful Blue card stock, then Old Olive car stock. Next is a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped the Snowflake from Berry Christmas Stamp set in Bashful Blue ink. I cut a strip of Bashful Blue card stock and then put a piece of our Old Olive Print Patterns Designer Paper on top of it. Next I put two Soft Subtle brads at the bottom of the piece. I stamped the bird in Bashful Blue, the holy leaf in Old Olive and make merry in Bashful Blue on the Very Vanilla card stock to line them up I used the Stamp ma jig. I then put a piece of Bashful Blue card stock behind that and wrapped some of the Mistletoe ribbon around it. I placed dimensionals on the back to pop it up off the card a little.
