A Beautifully Baroque Christmas!

It has been a great day creating in my stamp room today on this cold and gray day in Minnesota!  It really is a quick and easy Christmas card and you still have some time to create your own for Christmas.  Here is what I came up with – what do you think?  Please post your comments below – I would love to see you what you think!

beautifully baroque stamp set


Supplies needed:


  • Whisper white card stock – #100730
  • Cherry Cobbler card stock – #119685
  • Beautifully Baroque stamp set – #130895 (wood only)
  • More Merry Messages – #126400 (wood) #126402 (clear)
  • Cherry cobbler ink pad – #126966
  • Cherry cobbler marker – #119681
  • 3/8" whisper white taffeta ribbon – #109070
  • 2 way glue pen – #100425
  • dazzling diamonds glitter – #102023
  • stampin' dimensionals – #104430
  • mini glue dots – #103683


Cut card stock:


  • whisper white – cut one piece at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half for base of card
  • cherry cobbler – cut one piece at 5 1/4" x 4""
  • whisper white – cut one piece at 5" x 3 3/4"
  • scraps of whisper white card stock


Step by Step Directions:


  1. Stamp "Merry Christmas" on the bottom, center of the 3 3/4" x 5" whisper white card stock.  Attach to the 4" x 5 1/4" cherry cobbler card stock.  Attach all to the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" whisper white – base of card.
  2. Stamp the "Beautifully Baroque" stamp using the cherry cobbler card stock and stamp onto a scrap piece of whisper white card stock.  Cut out with scissors to make it look like an ornament.  Put 4 dimensionals on the back of the image and put into the center of the card.  Using a straight edge (ruler), using the cherry cobbler marker, draw a straight line on the whisper white card stock – just above the ornament.
  3. Using the 2 way glue pen, dot glue on the ornament where you want the glitter to stick.  Sprinkle dazzling diamonds glitter over the glue and shake off excess.
  4. Tie a bow in the 3/8" whisper white taffeta ribbon and secure to the top of the ornament using a mini glue dot.
  5. Your card is finished and ready to send!
