Good Morning! 

Today I wanted to show you a fairly simple Christmas card to make- lots of stamping and little cutting 🙂 

Joyful Season hand stamped Christmas card, Stampin Up, Gorgeous Grunge, two-step stamping

 This card really was quite simple to make. I started with a Soft Sky cardstock base and then added a layer of Crushed Curry.

Then on a layer of Shimmering White cardstock I stamped the Watercolor Wash background stamp in Soft Sky. Then, I stamped the branch and the bird outlines in Basic Black and then stamped the solid matching stamps in Chocolate Chip and Real Red, also stamping the berries on the tree in Real Red. I used a Crushed Curry marker to color in the beak, but you can also use the matching stamp to stamp the beak color instead.

I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp to stamp Crushed Curry and Real Red splashes of color on the corners. 

I then tied the Real Red Striped ribbon around the layer and tied a knot. Then adhered it to the card base. 

As the final touch, I added some Dazzling Details to the branch and berries and allowed it to dry.
