Cheer to the Years!

We're having a Shoebox Swap with my group, the Nacho Average Stampers, this Friday night!  I'm so excited to see these ladies again!  It's always a night filled with laughter and friendship -- I am truly blessed to have them in my life.

Here's the card I designed for the swap -- I adore snowflakes, and when I saw the Cheer to the Years stamp set, I just had to have it!  It's a great set that can be used all year round -- Christmas, New Year's and Anniversary, Wedding, etc!

I created a fun Christmas card with not-so-traditional colors.  This is one of my favorite color combinations:  Real Red, Marina Mist and Crumb Cake.
Here are the measurements and instructions:


  • Marina Mist: 5 ½”x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”;  1” x 3 ¾”
  • Real Red: 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”;  3/8” x 4 ¼”
  • Crumb Cake: 3 ¾” x 5”;  scrap for punched sentiment            


  1. Stamp the large snowflake randomly over your Crumb Cake panel, using Marina Mist ink.
  2. Stamp the small snowflake in the empty spaces, using Real Red ink.
  3. Stamp sentiment in Real Red ink. Punch out using the Pretty Label Punch.
  4. Add some large snowflakes in Marina Mist Ink.
  5. Sponge edges of label -- this is an easy way to create a “layered” look, and makes the punched piece stand out against the background.
  6. Cut banner tails in your strips of Real Red and Marina Mist.
  7. Assemble your card as shown. Stampin’ Dimensionals were used behind the punched sentiment.
