2018 Christmas stationery

For my 2018 Christmas cards and gift tags, I used the Lawn Fawn Baaah Humbug rubber stamps and dies and made quick and simple Christmas.  

Supplies are:

  • White cardstock
  • Cardstock tags (I cheated and ordered premade ones of these)
  • Lawn Fawn Baaah Humbug rubber stamps and dies
  • Cricut Cuttlebug die cutter
  • Black ink pad
  • Green ink pen/pad
  • Coloured pens
  • Silver marker
  • Glitter glue
  • Masking tape
  • Adhesive foam squares

I started by cutting a lot of cardstockā€¦  2.5 inches x 8 inches. Then scored and folded in half.  At least 40 cards were made I think but lost count!

Following that, I then stamped on all of the sheep onto the cards and the gift tags.  On the cards, I coloured the face and ears with a peach colour to give them a bit more, but on the tags, I left them as they were as the tags are brown.  

I then stamped on the lights and knitting needles using the black ink pad (the first card I did, I put the knitting needles upside-down).  Using my green ink pen I put on the little curl of yarn and the phrase. I then coloured the lights and dabbed on some glitter glue.

While those dried, I started the process of the hats.  I stamped out and coloured quite a few of these in one go, leaving space between each of them on the card stock.  I then cut the hats into rough squares so space around each of them. I then use the masking tape to hold the die in place before putting through the Cricut Cuttlebug machine.  This has to be done one at a time.

I then added glitter to the white parts of the hats and let them dry.

When dry, I used the adhesive foam squares to attach them to the cards and the tags and job done!
