Quick and simple one layer Christmas cards (using non-christmas stamps)

Hello crafty peeps,

it's Christine.
I have 3 types of quick and easy Christmas cards to share. I guess you all know them:

Many people start mass-producing cards for Christmas, so I thought I'd share three one layer cards that can easily be mass-produced.. They're all quick and easy, but some are even quicker that others ;) And the best thing: You don't even need any Christmas stamps for the following projects:

Type 1: "There's plenty of time left, so I'll mix some techniques"
  • Ink your On the corner die with Versamark before you place it on your cardbase and run it through your die-cut-machine
  • Remove the die and sprinkle on some glittery embossing powder to accentuate the cut frame. Heat emboss.
  • Stamp the sentiment from on the corder additions.
  • Add some sequins (Birthday Bash Mix) and gems
  • stick some washi tape to the bottom of the card
  • round the top corners.

Type 2: "November already, let's do something less time consuming"

  • Stamp and emboss your sentiment from Sparkle and Shine in White
  • Also stamp and emboss the Circle from Sparkle and Shine and the circle from Creepy Cute
  • color the circles with watercolor.
  • remove color from white embossed areas.
  • color gems in matching colours using Markers (Copic for example) and add them.

Type 3: "Oh gosh! December 18th already and I still need a bunch of cards. it MUST be simple!"

  • stamp the Time Warp background in gold ink (I uses Brilliance)
  • Stamp a star from Photo Booth and the Sentiment from Sparkle and Shine and gold emboss both.
  • Round the corners.

That's how it works, right? ;)

I hope this inspired you to use your non-Christmas Neat & Tangled stamps for quick and easy Christmas cards :)
